How serious are LeBron James and Dwyane Wade’s hamstring injuries?

Heat forward LeBron James sat out practice on Friday as a precautionary measure after injuring his hamstring earlier this week. James first felt pain on Tuesday night against CSKA Moscow. He sat out Wednesday’s tilt with the Hornets and the Heat didn’t practice on Thursday.

Heat guard Dwyane Wade will miss the team’s final three preseason games because of a hamstring injury. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said earlier this week that Wade was virtually pain-free, but the team wants to be cautious with the issue.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Is there cause for concern in South Beach?

Two of the Miami Heat’s Three Kings are sidelined: Dwyane Wade will miss the entire preseason with a hamstring injury and LeBron James skipped practice with his own hamstring pull.

The Heat is wisely taking a cautious approach. Better safe than sorry.

After all, hamstrings are tricky. They can flare up anytime. And players often struggle to return to full health.

So patience and caution will rule the day. Wade and James won’t see the court until the regular season starts in late October.

The Heat has too much hedged on these two players and the 2011 season.
