Miami is off to a comfortable 16-6 start this season, sitting at second place in the East. However, the Heat may be looking to bolster the roster in upcoming weeks, specifically for a player that could allow Dwyane Wade to rest his knees for the postseason.

That player might be Boston's Jordan Crawford, according to Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News. From his report:

Miami is looking to deal for a young wing player who can score and take some of the load off Dwyane Wade. A few GMs have identified Boston’s Jordan Crawford as a player the Heat will go after in the coming days/weeks.
Crawford is the reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week, helping Boston to the only 3-0 record in the East last week. He averaged 23.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 6.7 assists per contest.
