Dwyane Wade, Danny Granger and Udonis Haslem take warmup shots before Hornets game. burst.com/h/gy18072

Ira Winderman

Wade on the court for another pregame workout for Heat, currently shooting jumpers alongside Danny Granger.

Ethan J. Skolnick

With Deng's inconsistency, McRoberts' rust & Granger's unavailability, the re-signing of Chalmers stands out as a rare positive so far.

Frank Madden

Granger's rapid decline reminds me of Redd, which reminds me that it's a fine line between all-star scorer and washed up bench dude.

Shandel Richardson

And Danny Granger is healthy enough to dunk.

Tom Haberstroh

Danny Granger just clanked the side of the backboard on a corner 3. We got a name for that? @Trey Kerby @tasmelas @jeskeets

Ira Winderman

So wait for Granger until now?

Ira Winderman

Um, what ever happened to Danny Granger being healthy? Hasn't played.

Ira Winderman

Heat had tweeted Granger as a starter then removed the tweet. Now have Deng and Chalmers starting.

Joseph Goodman

Surgeon told Danny Granger this summer that he wouldn't feel right until after New Year's. He's not rushing back.

Surya Fernandez

Miami #Heat notebook: Chalmers pleasing Spoelstra with ability to sacrifice; Granger's debut; team injury update foxsports.com/florida/story/…

Surya Fernandez

Spo: "(Granger’s) really been proceeding well & at a good rate. We’re trying to get him more practice time, we’ll continue to evaluate him."

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra on Granger: "He hasn’t played where he’s felt great about his body in over 2 years. I’d say he’s ahead of schedule."

Scott Agness

Danny Granger with 4pts in 20mins tonight, his first game with the Heat. Started, too. He missed the first 10gms with a hamstring injury.

Surya Fernandez

Heat are missing 3 important players and plugging in Granger and Dawkins. They shot poorly overall and yet only down 5 at the half.

Jason Lieser

Nets 17, Heat 14, 3:37 left in Q1. D. Granger has 2p on 1/2 FGs so far in his debut. Bosh (12/49 FGs last 3 games) has yet to take a shot.

Jason Jackson

Welcome to the @Miami Heat @Danny Granger ….congrats on your first Miami basket #HEATLive

Jason Lieser

Danny Granger breaks through with a hard drive for a layup.

Jason Lieser

Danny Granger, out of practice, gets the ball in the L corner and steps out of bounds behind himself before driving to the hoop.

Ira Winderman

So two games ago, James Ennis was good enough to start. Now the Heat are (apparently) rushing back Danny Granger as an emergency starter?

Devin Kharpertian

Heat starting Danny Granger and Mario Chalmers in place of Luol Deng & Dwyane Wade.

Surya Fernandez

Didn't see this coming - #Heat starters: Granger (season debut), Cole, Chalmers, Williams, Bosh. No Wade, Deng or McRoberts tonight vs Nets.

Barry Jackson

Danny Granger, starting in his Heat reg. season debut tonight, has played just 46 games (and started 2) in past 2 seasons. Wade, Deng out.

Ira Winderman

Not only is Wade out for the Heat tonight (as well as McRoberts), but Granger is starting in place of ailing Deng. bit.ly/1wQfx2F

Stefan Bondy

Danny Granger is making his Heat debut tonight against the Nets.....and he's in the starting lineup. ....

Rod Boone

#Heat starters: Norris Cole, Mario Chalmers, Danny Granger, Shawne Williams & Chris Bosh. Deng is OUT.

Joseph Goodman

Danny Granger is starting for Luol Deng tonight.

Ira Winderman

When Chris Bosh goes out to jump center, he will see himself surrounded by Shawne Williams, Danny Granger, Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers.

Jason Lieser

This will be Danny Granger's debut for the Heat. Had been out with hamstring and hip flexor issues.

Ira Winderman

And out of nowhere, Danny Granger is starting in place of Luol Deng, who is out with a sore right wrist.

Jason Lieser

Heat to start Norris Cole, Mario Chalmers, Danny Granger, Shawne Williams & Chris Bosh.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Granger hasn't gotten on the court. McRoberts can't stay on it. Andersen is stapled to it. Shawne Williams only positive FA surprise so far.

Ira Winderman

Then Napier with the three. With no Wade, McRoberts, Granger, it's sort of kids or bust.

Ira Winderman

Danny Granger (hamstring) will dress, but be used only on an emergency basis.

Ira Winderman

Are Granger, McRoberts injuries robbing the Heat of any chance of continuity? Latest "Ask Ira" at bit.ly/1uwY81O plus more.

Nikos Varlas

Granger 2/15 shots & Toolson 5/11 for a total of 3 ass. In 4 games Granger had 27 as (6,75 av) & Toolson 18 (4,5 av) eurohoops.net/2014/11/dribbl…

Nikos Varlas

The champs of @MaccabiElectra are alive! The key was the defense on Granger and Toolson eurohoops.net/2014/11/dribbl…

Joseph Goodman

Justin Hamilton and Danny Granger again likely out to tonight in addition to Dwyane Wade. #Heat #Hawks

Ira Winderman

Danny Granger said he will not be available tonight to help fill in for Wade's absence, says he's not ready yet from his hamstring issue.

Ira Winderman

Could Granger help alleviate Heat depth concerns? Latest "Ask Ira" at bit.ly/1tQzx3d plus more.

David 'Dubi' Pick

Brian Randle just demolished Jayson Granger with a monster block at one, followed by a fast-break slam at the other.

Candace Buckner

Danny Granger, wearing vintage looking Saints tee, stepped through the #Pacers locker room after the game to say hello to former teammates.

Candace Buckner

Danny Granger will be available tonight for the #Heat but likely won't play. Per Spoelstra, he has a "slight strain of his hip flexor"

Ira Winderman

Usual starters for the Heat. Justin Hamilton and Andre Dawkins inactive, so Danny Granger and Chris Andersen active.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says Birdman likely to play. Granger most likely to dress but not play.

Ira Winderman

No Justin Hamilton for Heat tonight, but Chris Andersen likely and Danny Granger remains open-in-case-of-emergency.

Candace Buckner

From Sun Sentinel: Granger's first game as #Pacers opponent likely to wait fw.to/4yhM6fj

Ira Winderman

Danny Granger's first game as a Pacers opponent likely will have to wait. bit.ly/1xqzQGN

Surya Fernandez

Granger: "It was a lot of dislike, I'll just leave it at that. I'm sure they didn't like us either. It was an intense rivalry."

Surya Fernandez

Granger on Heat/Pacers rivalry: "It was intense, I'm not going to lie. We did not like the Miami Heat, it was nothing personal."
