The Miami Heat are 1-0 in preseason games, after downing the Washington Wizards last Tuesday. Hassan Whiteside won first star of the show, with Dion Waiters, Luke Babbitt, Goran Dragic and Justise making notable contributions.
This is the first preseason game for the Timberwolves and marks the debut of Tom Thibodeau as head coach and high expectations for a young Timberwolves team featuring last season's rookie of the year.
Chris Bosh, Josh Richardson, Josh McRoberts and Stefan Jankovic will be out for Heat, while Beno Udrih is questionnable. Expect more minutes for players who didn't see much action against the Wizards.
