Ill LeBron James, injured Dwyane Wade in doubt for Miami Heat vs. Phoenix Suns

LeBron James will be a game-time decision Saturday night due to an illness when the Miami Heat play the Phoenix Suns.

The Heat are also expected to be without Dwyane Wade because of a foot sprain.

James tweeted overnight that he'd caught a bug that has been going through the Heat team during their six-game road trip over the last week.

He posted a picture of himself wrapped up and said he had a headache and a stomach ache. Wade missed a game last Sunday because of sickness. James, who also suffered a bruised shoulder Thursday in Denver, was not at the team's morning shootaround in Phoenix.

Wade also skipped the workout and is expected to miss his second straight game with a left foot injury. The Heat's next game isn't until next Wednesday against the Milwaukee Bucks in Miami.

Giving Wade the next game off would give him a full week to recover.

Mario Chalmers did take part in the team's shootaround and is expected to play. Chalmers suffered a triceps strain Thursday and sat out the last three quarters of the Heat's win over the Denver Nuggets.
