After losing their last two games — both without Jimmy Butler and Goran Dragic — the Miami Heat have fallen into a tie with the Indiana Pacers for the four seed. (The Heat still hold tiebreaker over the Pacers.) Both Butler and Dragic returned to practice yesterday, and they are officially listed as questionable to play tonight.

The Pacers have gone 4-1 in the bubble thanks to the superstar-level play of T.J. Warren, who is also listed as questionable to play. We all know that Warren and Butler have a history, so seeing them square off will only add to the intensity of a game with playoff implications.

The game will start at 8 p.m. and will be available on NBA League Pass for those outside of South Florida.

Probable Starters:

Miami —

  • Jimmy Butler
  • Jae Crowder
  • Bam Adebayo
  • Duncan Robinson
  • Tyler Herro

Indiana —

  • Aaron Holiday
  • T.J. Warren
  • Myles Turner
  • Victor Oladipo
  • Malcolm Brogdon
