Okaro White is listed as questionable, and A.J. Hammons won’t travel with the team.

NBA: Preseason-Washington Wizards at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat will tip off their 2017-18 season tomorrow at the Orlando Magic. And we already know who won’t make the trip to the Heat’s intra-state rival.

Rodney McGruder, who suffered a stress fracture and underwent surgery, was no surprise to be out tomorrow. He’ll be out until the turn of the calendar at the earliest. But A.J. Hammons had returned to practice following a bout with the flu a week ago. It now appears the symptoms are back for the young 7-foot center.

Okaro White sprained his shoulder in a preseason game against the Washington Wizards.
