MIAMI (AP) Dwyane Wade worked out Sunday afternoon. So did his Miami Heat teammates.
They just weren't together, and there's no clear indication yet when the Heat will be whole again.
While the Heat held an open scrimmage before about 5,000 fans in Miami, Wade was in Chicago, going through drills with assistant trainer Rey Jaffet and testing his strained right hamstring. More of a concern, though, is why Wade's away from the team: The case that'll decide custody of his two sons continues Monday, and no one's sure when he'll be done testifying.
"What he's dealing with is way bigger than basketball," Heat forward LeBron James said. "So when he's ready to come back, when he's ready to return, we'll accept him with open arms, of course. We'll make sure we hold it down here. What he has going on, we're all in support, this whole organization, us as teammates, us as friends, us as a family."
The custody case has been going on for weeks, and the battle with Wade's now-ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade has been waged for considerably longer.
