Dwyane Wade and Chris Andersen returned from back injuries and played for the Miami Heat when they hosted the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.

Wade was lifted from the Heat's victory Monday night in Denver when he suffered back spasms midgame and treatment was unable to relieve them. He missed practice on Wednesday.

Andersen had missed the Heat's past three games with back and neck issues.
