Game Preview: LeBron returns to Miami as the Heat take on the Lakers

New, comments

The King is back in Miami as the Heat take on the new look Lakers at home.

NBA: Miami Heat at Los Angeles Lakers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Game Story:

LeBron is back in Miami, but Dwyane is not (still out as he attends to his newborn daughter). The Heat have been in a weird position as of late, treading water as to not fall too much in the standings. They’ve dropped winnable games, and still don’t have a complete team. The good news? James Johnson is probable to make his return tonight. The bad news? Dragic and McGruder are questionable.

For the Lakers this is the second game of a back to back, after dropping one to the Magic last night. The Heat need to capitalize on this and secure a win.

Probable Starters:

Heat: Goran Dragic, Rodney McGruder, Josh Richardson, Justise Winslow, Hassan Whiteside

Lakers: JaVale McGee, LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram
