He’s (Tyler Johnson) been practicing with some of his new teammates — Dion Waiters, James Johnson and Derrick Williams — and talking on the phone regularly with 11-time All-Star Chris Bosh, who has yet to participate in any of those workouts at the AAA with Johnson, but has been in his ear, like he always has, about the steps Johnson needs to take to improve as a player.

“He’s been kind of talking to me about what he needs to see out of me this year, how my role is going to grow and how now it’s not time to pace myself [anymore],” Johnson said Wednesday a youth summer basketball camp hosted by the Miami Heat at Miami Dade College.

“It’s time for me to make that leap.”

“I just decided, earlier than later, just to get to the unit where I’d be more comfortable in and can probably be better with this team in that lineup,” Wade said after practice Monday. “Why wait? Three games in, why wait? Wanted to get in there with those guys.”
