 MIAMI (AP) - Vacation for the Miami Heat is lasting all of one day.
The Heat took Monday off, a reward for a four-game sweep of the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. The reigning NBA champions will return to work on Tuesday with a morning practice.
Still, they will not play until at least Saturday, a welcome break for Dwyane Wade. He has dealt with bone bruises around his right knee for about a month now, and several days without contact will likely help him get ready for the second round against either Chicago or Brooklyn.
Wade did not play in Sunday's series-clinching win at Milwaukee.
