The Miami Heat (1-3) and New Orleans Pelicans (0-3) are playing in what seems to be an end of the roster battle. Both teams are likely to sit out regular players as they have only one preseason game remaining after this. The injury or will not play list is extensive. But this could be a good look at some of the players that are trying to make the roster.
