Game Story:

After falling short in an attempted comeback against the Magic, the Heat look to return to their winning ways against the Pacers. Unfortunately for Miami, they’re going to have to do so without Hassan Whiteside who is out with a bone bruise. Whiteside’s absence does equal out slightly, as the Pacers will also be without their star player, Myles Turner who is dealing with a concussion. It’ll be interesting to see who Miami throws into the mix to start in place for Whiteside, could this potentially be Bam Adebayo’s first start as a member of the Heat?

Probable Starters:

Heat:

  • Josh Richardson
  • Kelly Olynyk
  • TBD in place of Whiteside
  • Dion Waiters
  • Goran Dragic

Pacers:

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
  • Thaddeus Young
  • TBD in place Myles Turner
  • Victor Oladipo
  • Darren Collison
