James, Wade out again for Heat; Allen also sitting

Miami Heat stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will remain out of the team's lineup for Friday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats, with guard Ray Allen to join the duo on the sidelines.

Both James and Wade have sat out the Heat's past two contests, with James dealing with a strained right hamstring and Wade bothered by a sprained right ankle.

Allen, who put up 16 points in 26 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the New York Knicks, is also listed out with an ankle injury. The 37-year-old did undergo surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle back in the summer.

Miami, which has already sewn up the No. 1 seed for the upcoming Eastern Conference Playoffs, may have Mario Chalmers back in action for Friday's tilt, however. The starting point guard had missed the team's last three outings with a sprained right ankle of his own, but participated in Friday's shootaround and has been upgraded to a game-time decision.
