Erik Spoelstra said that Justise Winslow is “feeling better” after entering the league’s concussion protocol last Thursday. Winslow collided with Paul Millsap during the Heat’s loss to the Denver Nuggets last week.

But the Heat’s starting point guard will miss his third straight game tomorrow night against the Detroit Pistons. Derrick Jones Jr. will has also been ruled out.

Tyler Herro and Kelly Olynyk are also questionable for the game. Factoring in Dion Waiters’ suspension, that could leave the Heat with just nine players against the Pistons.

But Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel said that the Heat are expected to recall guard Daryl Macon from the Sioux Falls Skyforce before tomorrow’s game. Macon and Chris Silva are on two-way contracts with the Heat, which allow players to spend 45 days with their NBA team and the rest of the season with the G League affiliate.
