What to watch for:

- Avery Bradley (Right Calf; Strain), Goran Dragic (Left Ankle; Sprain), Meyers Leonard (Left Shoulder; Surgery) and Chris Silva (Left Hip Flexor; Strain) are all out. Gabe Vincent (Right Knee; Soreness) is probable.

- Anthony Davis (Right Calf; Strain) and Dennis Schroder (Health and Safety Protocols) are both out.

- Jimmy Butler has currently recorded three consecutive triple-doubles, becoming the first player in HEAT history to record at least two-straight. His last two have come on a back-to-back road set, becoming just the 11th player in NBA history to post consecutive triple-doubles on a back-to-back road sets. 

-  Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler each posted a triple-double on 2/18 at SAC. They are the only pair of HEAT teammates to each record a triple-double in the same game, having also accomplished the feat last season on 12/10/20 vs. ATL.

- Jimmy Butler has currently recorded at least eight rebounds in 10 consecutive games, becoming the first HEAT non-center to accomplish the feat since Shawn Marion had a 13-game streak from 2/26/08 – 11/1/08.
