MIAMI (AP) — So far this season, Miami Heat players have gotten new workout gear and new luggage.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has given his team two other gifts: Afternoons off.

Dreaded two-a-day practice sessions have been nonexistent so far in Heat camp, with Spoelstra canceling planned double-sessions Sunday and Monday. He says the Heat are getting enough work done in one session, so there's no need to further tax bodies so early in camp.

It's not like the reigning NBA champions aren't going the extra mile, however.

Spoelstra ended Monday's practice around noon. For the next hour, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Ray Allen, Mario Chalmers and other players stayed on the court, getting up hundreds of extra shots.
