Game Story:

The Miami Heat have one more tune-up before their season resumes for real on August 1. This matchup will be against the Memphis Grizzlies. This game was circled by Justise Winslow previously, but he’s out with a hip injury for the remainder of the restart.

The Heat let Jimmy Butler rest in the last one. And I would guess that they would get one good look of the team all together before it’s said and done. So expect the Heat to play their major players for a good portion of this game.

Memphis is still looking for a win in Orlando and likewise, you would expect them to play a good portion of their rotation against Miami. The Heat’s biggest need will be containing Ja Morant from penetration.

This will be an afternoon games starting at 2:00 PM and you can see it on NBATV nationally.

Probable Starters:

  • Jimmy Butler
  • Meyers Leonard
  • Bam Adebayo
  • Duncan Robinson
  • Kendrick Nunn
