The Miami Heat (47-27) host the Brooklyn Nets (38-35) on Saturday night at the FTX Arena with tip-off at 8:00pm.

Erik Spoelstra will be away from the team for just the third game in his coaching career, due to one of his sons needing a medical procedure.

Gabe Vincent remains out for the Heat, but thankfully for the team he will be the lone player out with all players, including Tyler Herro, previously listed as questionable available to play.

Former Heat guard Goran Dragic returns to action for the Nets, as will Seth Curry.
