The Heat, already without newly aquired free agent Jamaal Magloire for about two months, are now facing life without free agent signing James Jones for up to three months. Jones has a ruptured tendon in his right wrist and will have surgery Saturday. That's 2-for-3 on injuries to free agents signed by Miami this season. Let's hope Livingston makes it - dude's been through enough after last season's knee injury.

Haywood Possibly Out For Season, James Jones Out 3 Months
The Wizards really can't catch a break lately. Brendan Haywood, who sustained a torn ligament in his right wrist during training camp, is expected to be out from 4-6 months after having surgery to repair the damage. This should increase the value of Etan Thomas and Andray Blatche, although just how much remains to be seen.
