WASHINGTON (AP) - LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh sat out the Miami Heat's regular-season finale against the Washington Wizards on Thursday night, the second straight game they have missed.

Coach Erik Spoelstra is resting The Big Three as they prepare to open the playoffs.

Wade has a dislocated left index finger that Spoelstra says is improving, Bosh has a strained left hamstring, but participated in shootaround Thursday. Both Wade and Bosh were listed as inactive.
