08:15 AM ET 10.07 | After Wednesday's practice, uncertainty took over in the case of Dwyane Wade's hamstring. The Heat guard pulled the hamstring three minutes and 17 seconds into Tuesday's preseason opener against the Pistons while chasing guard Richard Hamilton on defense. But a day after the game, Wade, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and LeBron James each couldn't agree on the condition and prognosis of the injury. First, Spoelstra said he thought an MRI was scheduled for Wednesday. But Wade said an MRI wasn't necessary, just treatment. LeBron James then added to the confusion, saying he expected his teammate to miss "a couple weeks if less."

So coach/gm and all around dipshyyte LBNique is now a team doctor.

The Heat will soon learn that LBNique is running that team. The coach needs to learn that first and clear his comments with the ringless king before thinking he has any right to express his opinions to the media

Who cares let Wade get healthy and come back when he is ready, why is this news again??

All comments need to be cleared through LeBoob. Only he knows what is to be said to the press.

Morning Teemon... win or lose this should be a fun year with the Fat Shaq Show in town.

After all my nasty digs at him last year it's going to take some serious creativity for me to think of positive things to say about him.

He's dumb like a tree on a rainy day... what the hell does he mean by "a couple weeks if less."? Can Wade speak for himself? Miami can sure use a better drummer boy.

Most trees I know are a lot smarter than LBNique...

Wade's mom's barber said that his cousin said that he overheard a conversation where Lebron's mom said that all Wade needs is a good massage and a latte.

Yea, i agree. If there's anything us Clevelanders learned from all this, it's GENERAL MANAGERS MANAGE, COACHES COACH, AND PLAYERS PLAY (AND IN THIS CASE, TEAM DOCTORS TREAT.) lol. LeBron shouldn't have started running his mouth.

He wants to prove that the Heat will be ready and they probably will be but he's trying too hard to impress his new teammates and fan base.

I'm picking up the sense that he's trying to rub it in OUR face. Trying to show US that he's happy and has no regrets about his decision and i think we're already starting to get over it. I wish NOTHING bad on LeBron James or his new Heat teammates.

Can LBNiques mom make latte's too?

That woman has some real talent...

Come on... how many times do you see quotes from stars discussing another guys injuries and giving timetables? His ego is so inflated and bizarre that he nows feels qualified to make medical pronouncments??

The media doesn't have to make things up.

The New Nique is never going to learn to just keep his mouth shut in matters where he has no credible input.

He wants to start playing team doctor... I think they should rake him over the coals.
