Injury update: both White and Hammons available for Pacers game

Okaro White and AJ Hammons available if Spoelstra decides to dress either one or both.

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

Miami Heat officially tweeted that both Okaro White and A.J. Hammons are available for tonight’s Indiana Pacers game.

INJURY UPDATE: Okaro White (shoulder) participated in this morning’s team shootaround and will be available for tonight’s game.

INJURY UPDATE: AJ Hammons (illness) has returned to the team and is also available for tonight’s game.

Hammons return was unexpected, and may signal Hassan Whiteside may miss more than one game.

The 13 players who actually dress will be announced an hour before the 8 pm game. The starters are anyone’s guess, and may get less minutes than the Brothers Johnson, James Johnson and Tyler Johnson.

With the Pacers team new to each other, their lineup will probably be a work in progress during game. The flow of the game will probably determine the matchups coach Erik Spoelstra wants to see, and which players he uses.

Otherwise Spo just might be superstitious and hopes Okaro sparks another winning streak.
