The Miami Heat could really use a feel-good win tonight after a pair of disappointing losses to the Philadelphia 76ers on the road when they host the Detroit Pistons tonight.

The Pistons are winless so far on the road this season (0-4) but the Heat remain severely shorthanded with Jimmy Butler, Goran Dragic, Avery Bradley, Maurice Harkless, Kendrick Nunn, and Udonis Haslem all out due to health and safety protocols and Meyers Leonard out with a shoulder injury. Bam Adebayo returns to the starting lineup, though Tyler Herro (neck spasms) is out.

Tipoff: 8:00 p.m.
