Dwyane Wade's agent, Henry Thomas, said on Sunday that he plans to appeal Wade's one-game suspension for the shot to the groin of Ramon Sessions.
Wade was forced to sit out Friday's game and lost in excess of $150,000 for the missed contest.
"We are doing it on the basis that I don't think the suspension was warranted," Thomas said.
"He felt that it wasn't warranted. I saw the play and I just don't think that it was."
Appeal hearings can take months, but Thomas is confident that lost wages will be reclaimed once it is held.
"Absolutely," he said. "The players' association will file the appeal. The money will go in escrow and then when the hearing's held, it's held."
