What to watch for:

- Bam Adebayo, Avery Bradley, Jimmy Butler, Goran Dragic, Mo Harkless, Udonis Haslem, Kendrick Nunn and KZ Okpala are all out due to Health and Safety Protocols.

- Meyers Leonard (Left Shoulder; Strain) is doubtful. Gabe Vincent (Right Knee; Soreness) is probable.

- Miami is a perfect 3-0 this season when holding opponents to under 40 percent from the field.

- Tyler Herro is the only player in franchise history to have a 30-point game before turning 21 years old, doing so now three different times with a career-high 34 on 1/12 at PHI, 31 on 1/9 at WAS and 30 on 8/12/20 against OKC.
