The Miami Heat will open up preseason play against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night on the road. It’s been since April that the Heat have played against someone besides themselves in scrimmage, so we welcome it!

After a week of training camp at FAU and yesterday’s Red-White scrimmage, Miami is ready to see where they need to improve. This is also the Spurs first preseason game. Miami has a few minor injuries that we will need to keep an eye on, and we aren’t sure exactly who will play or start.

What To Watch For

Who will impress us?

Preseason is an opportunity for us to see a glimpse of what is to come. So who will surprise us? What rotation will seem new or what adaptation to their game is a surprise? I can’t wait to see Bam and Winslow and what role they will have in this game.
