LeBron wants rest in final two games

Heat star says he could use time off

Heat star LeBron James has missed only two games all season long, but following a 32-point performance in a win over the Rockets, James says he'd like two more games of rest.

LeBron made it no secret after Miami's come from behind win in their regular season home finale.  James told reporters afterwards that he could use some time off before the playoffs begin next weekend.

Heat coach Erik Spoesltra is well aware his star forward could use the days off, but he wouldn't commit to James not playing again in the regular season.

Spoelstra says he will evaluate all his players to determine who plays in the final two games of the regular season, both on the road.

He may not have a choice with Dwyane Wade.  Wade dislocated a finger on his left hand on Saturday but is expected to be ready for the playoffs.

It's unlikely Wade will play again in the regular season.
