MIAMI (AP) -Dwyane Wade is going back to work with the Miami Heat on Wednesday.
Sort of, anyway.
Wade, the 2006 NBA finals MVP, and several other injured Heat players will work the phones at halftime of Miami's game against the New Orleans Hornets, fielding calls from people looking to buy season tickets.
Other injured Heat players scheduled to take part in the event include Udonis Haslem, Shawn Marion, Alonzo Mourning, Marcus Banks, Jason Williams and Dorell Wright, along with anyone else on the Miami roster who's on the inactive list Wednesday.
The Heat, who have the NBA's worst record, have already seen players miss a combined 182 games because of medical issues this season.
