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.
DETROIT: GUARDS: BRANDON JENNINGS got a three-year deal to prove himself as a capable point guard, not just a flashy scorer. He'll have plenty of talent surrounding him in Detroit . . . RODNEY STUCKEY is in a contract year and has plenty of motivation. The question is whether his decision-making will ever allow him to play full-time . . . CHAUNCEY BILLUPS could beat out Stuckey for the two-guard role. He can play both backcourt spots and should see plenty of minutes . . . KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL-POPE scored through a lot of double-teams in college. We'll see if the late-bloomer is able to be as effective against NBA athletes. With the depth in Detroit, he's looking at strictly second-unit minutes this year . . . WILL BYNUM is locked into a second-unit spot. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH is Detroit's new alpha dog. Offensively, he's a boom-or-bust player now that he'll spend more time on the perimeter . . . KYLE SINGLER was a steadying presence last year, and with his ability to play multiple spots, he should continue to get solid minutes off the bench . . . Italian League MVP LUIGI DATOME gives them a Swiss army knife type off the bench . . . It's back to square one for JONAS JEREBKO, who fell out of favor under Lawrence Frank. He has the kind of positional flexibility and versatility GM Joe Dumars has talked up, but he'll have to earn second-unit minutes . . . Second-rounder TONY MITCHELL is an NBA athlete who can break this rotation if the effort is there . . . CHARLIE VILLANUEVA gets paid a lot of money to do very little. CENTERS: GREG MONROE will give up some touches with Josh Smith coming in, but being surrounded by athletes like Smith and Andre Drummond will cover up his defensive flaws . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND will log close to full-time minutes with Monroe playing primarily the four. His offensive game may never come, but he's a defensive and rebounding monster. JOSH HARRELLSON will be a fan favorite who plays hard in the rare occasions he sees the floor.

*Heat-Pistons Preview* ======================


Miami (14-5) at Detroit (9-10), 6:00 p.m. EDT

While Dwyane Wade returned to help Miami regroup from consecutive defeats, he could be back on the sidelines Sunday versus surging Detroit.

That could spell trouble for the visiting Heat, who couldn't handle the Pistons without Wade earlier this week.

After falling 107-97 to Detroit on Tuesday and 107-87 at Chicago two nights later, Miami (15-5) pulled out a crucial 103-82 win at Minnesota on Saturday. LeBron James had 21 points, a season-high 14 rebounds and eight assists while Wade scored 19 after missing the previous two games, one due to lingering knee trouble and the other because of illness.

"Don't talk about it, just go do it. To me, when I say it, I go and make it happen," James said. "We don't like losing back-to-back games, and we definitely don't want to lose three in a row."

Wade, though, may return to the bench as the Heat play the second of a back-to-back. Miami is 2-3 without him this season.

"All of it's frustration," Wade said. "Everyone wants to be 100 percent every day. But it's a part of the game. Everyone deals with it in their own way. The only thing I can focus on is when I'm able to get back on the court and go out there and help my team win."

The Heat surely could have used Wade against Detroit, which scored 29 points off 19 turnovers Tuesday. Seven players scored in double figures for the Pistons, including a combined 34 off the bench from Kyle Singler and Rodney Stuckey. Andre Drummond added 10 to go along with 18 boards as Detroit outrebounded Miami 46-34.

"They're a huge team, we know that," James said after posting 23 points and six turnovers in the loss. "Records don't matter when we play teams. Obviously teams play a totally different pace and totally different style when they get up to play us. There is no complacency with us; it is the name of the game. You can't look at records and say they should win. We have to go out and play and if you don't you get beat."

The Pistons (10-10) have yet to lose this month, outscoring opponents by an average of 12.3 points during a four-game winning streak. Brandon Jennings scored a season-high 33 points as Detroit got back to .500 with Saturday's 92-75 rout at short-handed Chicago.

"He made plays when we really needed him to make plays," coach Maurice Cheeks said. "That is what he is evolving to. He knows when we need to make a play. We need him to play like this and shoot the ball the way he is capable of shooting."

The Pistons held the Bulls to season lows in scoring and field goal percentage (33.3). While Detroit put together two four-game runs last season, it hasn't won five in a row since Dec. 4-12, 2009.

"I like the way we are playing," Cheeks said. "I think we have been getting better every game. Our defense has been getting better. Clearly our offense is a little better. I like our flow, I like our defensive flow, I like our offensive flow, I think we are getting better in all phases."

Jennings had 15 points in Miami last week, and the Pistons may need to lean on him more with Stuckey's status up in the air. Stuckey, who exited in the second quarter Saturday with a sore left knee, is second on the team with 15.4 points per contest.

Despite Tuesday's win, the Pistons are 3-14 in their last 17 against the Heat.
