The NBA suspended Dwyane Wade one game for kicking Ramon Sessions in the groin on Wednesday.
The incident looked deliberate and one game seems about right for Wade. He will miss Friday's game against the Pistons and will be ready to go for Saturday against the Bucks. Shane Battier produced while Wade was out earlier this season, so he makes sense as a nice spot-start option. Mario Chalmers is coming off two big games and is also more alluring as a play on Friday.
