The Miami Heat (17-12) continue their short road trip against (what’s left of) the Orlando Magic (5-24) team tonight at the Amway Center.

If you think the Heat’s injury list was lengthy, the Magic has numerous players among the walking wounded, along with several more now placed under the NBA’s healthy and safety protocols. As a result, Orlando is forced to sign enough players to be able to play the game tonight.
