UPDATE: Game 2 Injury Report - Mario Chalmers to play, Al Jefferson limited but also active

Chalmers will be re-evaluated before tonight's clash.

Miami Heat starting point guard Mario Chalmers continues to deal with an injury to his knee that he suffered in the first quarter of Game 1 against the Charlotte Bobcats. The Heat are listing him as questionable for tonight's pivotal Game 2.

Chalmers was limited in practice yesterday and afterwards coach Erik Spoelstra shed some light on his condition.

"He still has that bruise on his knee and we'll see how he feels tomorrow," Spo said. "He did make progress from [Monday]."

If Chalmers can't play, Spoelstra might elect to start Toney Douglas and continue to have Norris Cole provide a spark off the bench.

Update: Chalmers is listed as a starter for tonight's game. Michael Beasley and Justin Hamilton are listed as inactive for Game 2.

For the Bobcats, their biggest weapon against the Heat remains hobbled as Al Jefferson was seen with a walking boot at yesterday's practice.

Update: Jefferson remained in the boot all day but will apparently give it a go for tonight's game.
