The Miami Heat (1-0) hit the road to visit the Houston Rockets (1-0) after an encouraging blowout home victory against the Atlanta Hawks to open the preaseason.

The team listed Caleb Martin and Gabe Vincent as out for tonight’s matchup as well as Marcus Garrett, though it remains to be seen if former Rockets player PJ Tucker will play tonight after suffering a minor groin injury during the Hawks game and did not return to action. Also up in the air is Jimmy Butler’s status for the game after sitting out Monday to rest.

Only Eric Gordon (out - ankle) is currently listed in the Rockets injury report.

Tonight’s game tips off at 10:00pm and will also be televised nationally on ESPN2.
