MIAMI (AP) - Heat star Dwyane Wade and reserves Udonis Haslem, Mike Miller and James Jones were held out of contact portions of Sunday’s practice.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says they all will practice fully Monday. Miami hosts Game 1 of the NBA finals against Dallas on Tuesday night.

Spoelstra says the moves were given to ensure that everyone is “healthy going into this.” The Heat spent time on drills Sunday and Spoelstra says Miami’s installation of a game plan for the Mavericks is on schedule.

Wade’s health was a discussion topic during the Eastern Conference finals, when he was receiving treatment on his left shoulder. The 2006 NBA finals MVP downplayed a question about injuries on Sunday, and the team expects him to be fully ready for Game 1.
