What to watch for:

- Avery Bradley (Health and Safety Protocols), Jimmy Butler (Health and Safety Protocols) and Meyers Leonard (Left Shoulder; Strain) are out. 

- Tyler Herro (Neck; Spasms) is questionable, Gabe Vincent (Right Knee; Soreness) is probable.

- Goran Dragić is just one assist short from his 4,000th career assist.

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