Mark Montieth

Ex-Pacer watch: Boston's Evan Turner 10-7-5 in 24 min/ Charlotte's Lance Stephenson 7-13-8, 3 of 12 shooting/ Miami's Danny Granger DNP-CD

Ira Winderman

And now James Ennis, which likely means Granger too banged up to play.

Jason Lieser

Danny Granger (hamstring) & Udonis Haslem (quad) are dressed for action tonight and on the bench.

Jason Lieser

I don't see Danny Granger or Udonis Haslem in the layup line. Neither was ruled inactive beforehand. Might be getting treatment.

Jason Lieser

Andre Dawkins is inactive tonight, which probably means Haslem (quad) and Granger (hamstring) are available.

Ira Winderman

Haslem and Granger both active for Heat tonight. Dawkins and McRoberts inactive.

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra confirms McRoberts is out tonight, also says Udonis Haslem (tight quad) and Danny Granger (tight hamstring) may be out tonight.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says Haslem has been sore for a week, Granger for a few days.

Shandel Richardson

Granger (hamstring) and Haslem (quad) are questionable for tonight.

Jason Lieser

Danny Granger (hamstring) and Udonis Haslem (quad) are warming up to see if they'll be able to go. Status TBD.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Granger (hamstring) & Haslem (quad) questionable for Heat vs Wizards tonight. McRoberts out. Wizards don't have Nene (suspension) or Beal.

Ira Winderman

McRoberts (toe), of course, is out. So Dawkins could be active if Haslem or Granger can't go. And no Granger likely would mean some Ennis.

Ira Winderman

Haslem has a tight quad and Granger has a tight hamstring, with their status in question tonight.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra rules out Josh McRoberts (toe). Udonis Haslem (quad) and Danny Granger (hamstring) are in question.

Barry Jackson

Link: Heat notes: Deng, Granger look to recapture games; PGs, Bosh and more: UM's Golden, D'Onofrio address issues: miamiherald.typepad.com/sports-buzz/20…

Ira Winderman

That leaves the Heat with five free agents added in offseason: Deng, McRoberts, Granger, Shawne Williams and Shannon Brown.

Joseph Goodman

2014-15 #Heat: Cole, Wade, Deng, McRoberts, Bosh Chalmers, Brown, Granger, Andersen, Haslem Napier, Dawkins, Ennis, Williams, Hamilton

Ira Winderman

With Heat limited on wing, with Deng and Granger out, Heat in third went with Napier, Chalmers and Cole together. Small(est) ball.

Ira Winderman

For those tuning in late, no Deng, Granger, McRoberts, Haslem or Birdman for Heat, but Hamilton making preseason debut.

Surya Fernandez

Birdman, Deng, McRoberts, Haslem and Granger are all out tonight vs Grizzlies.

Javier Gancedo

Canasta de Granger en penetración, 84-84, 35 segundos.

Dan Woike

Jared Cunningham attended the Danny Granger School of Compression Modeling.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra said he did not play James Ennis because he wanted to give an extended run to Danny Granger.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra said he held out James Ennis in order to give Danny Granger more time. Granger scored 3p on 1/3 in 16min.

Jason Lieser

Heat notables who haven't played yet tonight: Udonis Haslem, James Ennis. Danny Granger has gotten just 11min, but he's in to start Q4.

Surya Fernandez

It took a while but Granger knocks down the first Heat 3-pointer of the night.

Ira Winderman

Granger doing a nice job early on of facilitating.

Paul Garcia

BUT, Granger takes Anderson into the paint and makes the contested layup. Granger to shoot the freebie.

Ira Winderman

Danny Granger . . . your Heat go-to guy tonight.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Joseph, Green, Anderson, Duncan, Bonner. Heat: Cole, Chalmers, Haslem, Granger, Williams. Just like in the Finals.

Ira Winderman

Spoestra to hold out Wade, Bosh, Deng and Birdman tonight, likely to start Shawne Williams, Haslem, Granger, Cole and Chalmers.

Ira Winderman

Both Wade and Bosh prepared to spectate Saturday in San Antonio. Figure on plenty of Granger.

Ira Winderman

Getting feeling Granger being saved as somewhat of a leading man Saturday, when Heat complete back-to-back in San Antonio. Has not played.

Ira Winderman

Looking like Shawne Williams will get the call at power forward. Spoelstra said he is not starting Granger-Luol in tandem again tonight.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra wasn't sure if Danny Granger (knee) would be able to practice regularly or play any preseason games. Hasn't missed a day yet.

Ira Winderman

Can Heat afford to play Danny Granger at power forward? Latest "Ask Ira" at bit.ly/1vuSIWB plus more.

Jason Lieser

Quick notes from 1st half: Bosh seems more assertive offensively & rebounding. Cole's best game yet. Granger looks way ahead of projections.

Ira Winderman

Shawne Williams enters as first Heat reserve, for Granger.

Ira Winderman

Then Granger with perfect set up to Deng on typical Deng cut. Heat 14-0 on Hawks. Horford 0 for 2 in return.

Ira Winderman

Heat up 12-0. Cole, Bosh, Granger all looking good early.

Surya Fernandez

Heat open up quick 10-0 lead: Bosh 4 points, Granger 3, Cole 3

Jason Lieser

Heat rolling, up 10-0 on ATL in first two minutes. Two 3s by Granger, two nice moves by Bosh against Horford.

Ira Winderman

Granger opens 2 of 2 on 3-pointers, after three games of struggles from distance for Heat.

Ira Winderman

If Granger does wind up with regular-season minutes at power forward, it could significantly reduce Haslem's opportunities.

Surya Fernandez

Haslem, Granger warm up with some corner 3-pointers. burst.com/h/vn15625

Surya Fernandez

Heat forward Danny Granger launches pregame corner threes. burst.com/h/3k15618

Jason Lieser

Heat starters tonight vs ATL: Norris Cole, Wade, Deng, Danny Granger & Bosh. Spoelstra still test driving options while McRoberts is out.

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Cole, Wade, Granger, Deng, Bosh. #Hawks starters: Teague, Korver, Carroll, Millsap, Horford

Ira Winderman

Granger to start at power forward tonight, third PF in four exhibitions. Also Bosh, Wade, Deng and Cole.

Joseph Goodman

Did the Heat not learn anything from the last 10 years? Danny Granger can't guard LeBron James.
