The Miami Heat are looking for a third straight win, but may have to do it short-handed. The Heat released some updates on players regarding tonight's matchup with the Brooklyn Nets.

Dwyane Wade is a game-time decision.

That could throw a big curveball into what the Heat are trying to build with consistency. We don't know what type of illness he has, but we do know he was healthy enough to be live-tweeting during his wife's TV show last night.

Josh McRoberts will not play.

McRoberts was very consistent to start the season, but now has missed several games in a row resting his knee. The Heat have depth in the power rotation behind him with Udonis Haslem and maybe even Amare Stoudemire if necessary, so they will survive.

Tyler Johnson is a game-time decision.

This would be great to have Tyler back. He hurt his should in practice and has missed a few games. Gerald Green has gotten his touch back to help the bench, but Tyler would take back minutes from seldom used Beno Udrih and would be a good spark off the bench.

Goran Dragic doesn't appear to be suffering any setbacks from his tooth incident on Monday.

The Heat will play the Nets tonight at 7:30.
