MIAMI -- The trial where Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade is facing a breach-of-contract claim from two of his former business partners in a failed restaurant deal is on hold until Tuesday.

In essence, it means there will be a one-week interruption of the trial, which is now certain to last longer than attorneys originally hoped.

Testimony was postponed Thursday because of schedule conflicts involving a planned witness. Court wasn't in session Wednesday so a juror could attend a family funeral, and Friday was a scheduled off day so Wade can attend a divorce and custody hearing in Chicago.

Wade is seeking damages as well from the partners, saying his likeness was used in ways he did not approve.
