Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade will have to be on his best behavior Saturday night when he faces the Milwaukee Bucks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Wade will be under scrutiny after being suspended without pay by the league for the Heat's game Friday night at Detroit, the result of his kick to the groin of Charlotte guard Ramon Sessions on Wednesday. It was the first time Wade has been suspended in his 10-year National Basketball Association career. But the former Marquette University player is having to defend himself after a series of incidents during the past few years. The latest came after a reach-in foul by Sessions in the fourth quarter of the Heat's victory. Wade responded with a swift left-footed kick, stunning even the announcers on the Fox Sports Florida telecast. NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson issued the suspension to Wade for "flailing his leg and making contact with the groin."
