CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: KEMBA WALKER has become a more efficient scorer as well as a capable distributor. He'll sacrifice some shots with Al Jefferson coming in, but he should have more space with which to operate. Down the line, he could mesh nicely with pick-and-pop four Cody Zeller . . . GERALD HENDERSON transformed from a raw athlete into an effective, efficient scorer in the second half of last season. He should be the No. 2 or 3 option this year . . . RAMON SESSIONS is locked in as a sixth man. He's not a shooter, but his ability to get to the line makes him an effective second-unit scorer . . . BEN GORDON seems to be going through the motions at this point. His real value this season is his enormous expiring contract. FORWARDS: MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST is going to be a quality NBA player for a long time, but he's not close to being a major factor offensively. He'll continue to defend and rebound effectively for a wing, but he's a No. 4 or 5 option on the offensive end of the court . . . JOSH MCROBERTS proved good enough to be a rotational player on a bad team last year. He has a chance to start early on while the Bobcats bring some young guys along . . . CODY ZELLER struggled against length and athleticism in college, so it seems the 'Cats think he can be more of a stretch, pick-and-pop four. If he proves to be a shooter, he's athletic enough and a good enough rebounder to be a solid NBA starter . . . JEFFERY TAYLOR is a forgettable second-unit player who can defend a couple of positions. ANTHONY TOLLIVER won't see the floor much, but he can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. CENTERS: We'll see how the Bobcats mesh with AL JEFFERSON, the NBA's worst defensive big man and a lane-clogging black hole on offense. He can score, and at (an incredible) $40 million-plus, Charlotte will run everything through him . . . BISMACK BIYOMBO will play some alongside Jefferson, as the Bobcats desperately need to cancel out Jefferson's defense. But the young big man figures to be used more sparingly this year . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD is still kicking around.
MIAMI: GUARDS: DWYANE WADE will continue to take a smaller role during the regular season, as the Heat try desperately to keep him fresh for the playoffs. He's attacking the rim far less than he used to . . . MARIO CHALMERS will continue to start, playing off the ball more than any other point guard . . . RAY ALLEN will once again serve as sixth man, providing long-range shooting off the bench. He didn't start a single game last year, and at age 38, he'll rarely play full-time minutes as Miami looks toward the postseason . . . NORRIS COLE continues to inch up on Chalmers' starting role, improving nicely between his first and second seasons. But as long as Chalmers is the superior shooter, Cole will play behind him. FORWARDS: LEBRON JAMES is the best player in the league by a wide margin. There's no reason he shouldn't win his third straight MVP award . . . SHANE BATTIER is back as a glue guy, flopper and corner-three shooter. He'll play part-time minutes, often coming off the bench . . . UDONIS HASLEM will likely start, but he rarely stays on the floor for even half of a game. The Heat will continue to rotate big men alongside Chris Bosh . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY provides this team with an athlete who can put the ball in the basket coming off the bench. He must prove he can stay focused and out of trouble . . . RASHARD LEWIS may step into a slightly bigger role now that Mike Miller is gone. His troublesome knees won't allow him to play a lot of minutes, but he still shoots it well enough to help for a few minutes a night . . . JAMES JONES might have to do more than enjoy a courtside seat now that Miller is gone. CENTERS: CHRIS BOSH plays center in the Heat's small-ball lineup. He'll do his thing in the high post, and he's one of Miami's rotating rim protectors . . . CHRIS ANDERSEN did enough last postseason to earn a part-time role this year . . . The Heat hope GREG ODEN and Birdman will stagger their injuries. Oden should be part of a rotation alongside Bosh . . . JOEL ANTHONY is a half-step above team mascot.

*Bobcats-Heat Preview* ======================


Charlotte (8-9) at Miami (13-3), 6:00 p.m. EDT

The Miami Heat are cruising through their best stretch since an epic winning streak earlier this year. That's not likely to change against the Charlotte Bobcats - even if LeBron James doesn't play.

It's possible James misses a game for the first time this season as the Heat seek a 10th straight win overall and 14th in a row over the visiting Bobcats on Sunday night.

After finishing with 27 points in a 90-83 win at Toronto on Friday, James is averaging 27.6 points on 61.1 percent shooting - including 14 of 28 from 3-point range - during Miami's nine-game winning streak.

It's the franchise's longest run since its 27-game streak Feb. 3-March 25 that was the second-longest in NBA history.

James, though, said after the contest that he was looking forward to Saturday's day off after injuring his back in a collision with Toronto's Tyler Hansbrough. According to reports, it's possible the reigning MVP could be held out of Sunday's game.

"It bothered me throughout (Friday's) game," said James, who hasn't sat out since some relatively meaningless regular-season games in April. "That's definitely a step backwards, but we'll see what happens the next couple of days."

The Heat (13-3) won 89-79 in Charlotte on April 5 even with James and Dwyane Wade out due to minor injuries, then they beat the Hornets for the 13th straight time with a 97-81 road win Nov. 16 when James scored 30. He's shot 80.4 percent (37 of 46) in his last three games against them, averaging 31.3 points.

Wade had a season-low four points in that last meeting, bothered by a knee problem which caused him to miss the next two games. He's scored more than 20 points in all four games since returning, averaging 23.0 while hitting 62.7 percent from the field.

Chris Bosh hasn't been much help offensively, scoring 5.7 per game on 7-of-24 shooting in the last three, but he helped Miami hold all of those opponents below 40.0 percent from the field.

The Bobcats (8-9) have not shot better than 35.0 percent in any of the last three meetings with the Heat, and they've averaged 86.9 points during their 13-game skid in the series.

Charlotte's Kemba Walker finished with 22 points in the first meeting this season and had 20 in a 109-77 loss in the team's most recent trip to Miami on March 24. Walker, however, has totaled 25 while missing 21 of 27 shots in his last two games overall.

Behind Al Jefferson's season highs of 23 points and 12 rebounds, the Bobcats snapped a two-game skid with a 92-76 victory over Eastern Conference-worst Milwaukee on Friday.

Jefferson, who has battled a nagging ankle injury all season, has posted 18.0 points per game over his last four.

"We have to get him the ball deeper (in the paint) consistently if we're going to beat the best teams," said first-year coach Steve Clifford, whose club is among the league's worst offensively with 88.6 points per game and 40.7 field-goal shooting.

Things aren't likely to get any easier against a Miami team that has given up an average of 90.9 points on 41.1 percent shooting during its streak.

Bobcats starting forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is expected to return after missing one game due to plantar fasciitis.

Charlotte has won four of five on the road but has dropped seven straight in Miami.
