The Miami Heat travel westward on Monday to visit the LA Clippers at Staples Center. This game is a marquee matchup featuring two teams who could meet in the NBA Finals this season. Miami had their four-game winning streak snapped on Saturday by the streaking Utah Jazz and will look to bounce back with a win tonight.
The LA Clippers will be playing on back-to-back nights after a win against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday. They played without Kawhi Leonard but were able to secure the win behind 30 points from Lou Williams.
Miami Heat - Team News
The Miami Heat have been struggling to put bodies on the floor on a nightly basis and it will be the same for Monday’s match with the LA Clippers.
The Heat listed Gabe Vincent as probable yet again. He only played two minutes on Saturday, perhaps due to the right knee soreness that has been plaguing him.
Goran Dragic will not suit up for a fifth consecutive game as he nurses a left ankle injury. Chris Silva’s left hip strain has not healed yet and he remains on the injured list for the time being.
Avery Bradley was sidelined for Sunday's game with a right calf strain. He won’t be back for at least a month while Meyers Leonard is out for the season with a left shoulder injury that requires surgery.
Injured: Avery Bradley, Chris Silva, Goran Dragic, Meyers Leonard
Doubtful: Gabe Vincent
LA Clippers: Team News
The LA Clippers are also dealing with a few injuries themselves.
Paul George has been listed as a game-time decision due to a bone marrow edema in his right big toe. He is more than likely out for this game until further notice.
Kawhi Leonard was rested on Sunday because of a lower-leg bruise but it is likely that he will play tonight against the Miami Heat. He will be a game-time decision by the Clippers.
Daniel Oturu has a quad strain that will keep him sidelined indefinitely and so is Jay Scrubb (foot).
Injured: Paul George, Daniel Oturu, Jay Scrubb
Doubtful: Kawhi Leonard
