Heat series to start on Monday

Miami will face winner of Brooklyn/Chicago

Headline Goes Here

MIAMI - The Miami Heat's second round Playoff series will start on Monday.

The NBA announced that the Heat will host the winner of Brooklyn/Chicago on May 6, regardless of when the Nets/Bulls series ends.

That means, the Heat will have more than a week to prepare for the next series.

Dwyane Wade can use the rest to nurse a sore right knee, which forced him to miss Game 4 of the Milwaukee series.

Miami is coming off a sweep of the Bucks.
