Danny Granger (flu) is a game time decision
Spoelstra says Granger saw doctor today and will try to show up. Wade feels better and will go. McRoberts and Bosh out.
Interestingly, even with no Granger, also no Ennis to this point for Heat.
Clearly Nets' goal is for Wade and Napier to get sicker . . . or Granger to get healthier.
Spoelstra said Granger grew Iill overnight.
Granger is out tonight. Wade will play.

Granger out with stomach virus.
No Danny Granger. Sounds like Dwyane Wade will play.
Two illnesses circulating the Heat-- a cold (Cole, Napier) and a stomach virus (Granger, Andersen, McRoberts, Haslem, Wade, Granger).
Shabazz Napier is also sick, but only with a cold, and not the stomach bug that’s running through Wade and Granger.
Wade and Granger not at shootaround due to illness.
Danny Granger and Dwyane Wade, both sick, did not attend shootaround this morning in New York.

HALF: Bulls 39, Heat 32. Miami's leading scorer is Justin Hamilton at 8p. Wade & Granger with 3 fouls each.
Remembering the player that Danny Granger was, it is difficult to watch him on both ends of the floor right now.
Nice timing on that block by Danny Granger against Tony Snell. Offensively, Granger is 0 of 4. Heat shooting 26.9 percent. Bulls 22-20.
So Danny Granger now as defensive stopper, hustle player, and occasional scorer?
Granger has missed all 3 of his shots but he's had a pair of nice defensive sequences.
Danny Granger gets up to block a layup by Ian Snell. By far Granger's most athletic play of the season.
Heat fielding a lineup of Chalmers, Shawne Williams, Birdman, Granger and Cole. Who scores?
Bird enters with Granger, who now actually plays.
Heat sending in Danny Granger, so he's ahead of James Ennis in the rotation tonight.
So Damjan Rudez has taken up the Danny Granger role for in-game karaoke. CJ Miles had to guess the song he's attempting to hum.
Heat also sent Hassan Whiteside to Sioux Falls. That means they could go into Chicago game w/ 10 available players (counting Danny Granger).
Gordon Hayward heating up . . . so Spoelstra turns to Granger.
Hey, Danny Granger plays for the Heat (2 for 2 on 3s).
What's got into Danny Granger tonight?
A Danny Granger sighting and a Danny Granger 3-pointer.
Danny Granger basically getting the Jason Kapono treatment. If he's on you, you get the ball.
Shorthanded Heat send in Danny Granger. He sat the last two. Fifth appearance out of Miami's 22 games.
Why, yes, we have reached Granger time.
Danny Granger out shooting, alone, with 49 minutes left on the pregame clock, very much a solitary figure.
Josh McRoberts out tonight in Denver. Just 296 minutes in the Heat's first 22 games. Just 63 for Danny Granger.
The Heat has used six different starting lineups over its last eight games. Tonight's starters: Chalmers, Wade, Granger, McRoberts, Bosh
Actually, Granger playing and starting for Heat, along with Bosh, McRoberts, Wade and Chalmers.
So it looks like no Deng, Birdman or Granger for Heat, with Larry Sanders ill and out for Milwaukee. Game 8:30 p.m. (Sun Sports)
Birdman and Luol Deng ruled out for tonight's Heat game vs Bucks. Cole and Granger both questionable (illness).
Granger started for Heat the only previous time Deng was out. Ennis an option but he might be only available reserve two if Chalmers starts.
As expected, Luol Deng (hand) and Chris Andersen (ankle) out for Heat tonight. Norris Cole, Danny Granger questionable due to illness.
