WHO: Miami Heat (23-16) at Brooklyn Nets (16-22)

WHEN: 7:30 PM ET

WHERE: YES Network (TV); WFAN-FM (Radio)

From our game preview...

Injuries: No Ben Simmons or Day’Ron Sharpe. Expect both back in two weeks.

Dru Smith is out. Jimmy Butler has been out for a while due to a right MP joint sprain, and it’s doubtful he plays today. Kevin Love missed last night’s game due to a left knee contusion. We’ll see if he’s back tonight. Jaime Jaquez Jr had to leave last night’s game due to a groin injury. No word on if he’ll play tonight.

The Game: There’s always a lot of discussion about travel in the NBA, but this year there’s been a bit more than usual. The Nets are back from Paris, but after today’s game immediately fly west for a three-game road trip. The Heat are on the second leg of a back-to-back. And to make things more complicated for Spo and friends, this is their third game in four nights. The road doesn’t get any easier.
