Insight: The reality is, Miami doesn't need Chalmers (9.8 ppg, 4.9 apg) to beat the seventh-seeded Bobcats. It might ultimately benefit the team more to have him healthy for the next round when the Heat are likely to face a much tougher opponent. Norris Cole would fill in at point guard if Chalmers sits this one out.
