Heat Expects Mario Chalmers to be Ready for Start of Training Camp

The Miami Heat's Mario Chalmers appears to be healing from his ankle injury and should be ready for the start of training camp.

The Breakdown
With reports that Carlos Arroyo is still hurting due to a quad injury he suffered at the FIBA World Champtionships, Chalmers may come into camp as the lone healthy point guard on the roster. As we mentioned in a previous post, we felt that the player who could get healthy by the start of training camp would have the inside track on a starting spot. The longer Arroyo is sidelined, the better it looks like Chalmers will be the team's opening day starter.

Regardless of who starts, it seems they'll both play about the same amount of minutes. But the player who gets to start and spend most of their court time alongside LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh figures to get better scoring and assist opportunities then the one who comes off the bench, who may have to play a bit with the second unit.
