A nephew of Heat star Dwyane Wade was one of 13 men shot - two fatally - during a violent six-hour stretch in Chicago.

Wade learned of the situation after Miami defeated Dallas on Thursday night. On Friday, Wade said he played "with a heavy heart" when the Heat visited Toronto. Wade scored 30 points in Miami's 113-101 victory, and afterward said he expects his nephew to recover.

"I played for him and with him in mind," Wade said. "I was 9 years old when he was born. I was an uncle at 9 years old. A lot of thoughts go through your mind. ... My prayers go out to all the families involved, especially the one family who lost a child. My prayers go out to them."

Wade's nephew was one of six males shot at a store on Chicago's South Side on Thursday by hooded men who police said fled the scene in an SUV. One man was dead at the scene and four others - ranging in age from 16 to 24 - were hospitalized in critical condition. There were three other incidents during Thursday's spree, one of them involving the other death.
