Shannon Brown again starts for Heat, with Wade and Cole out.
Wade on the court for another pregame workout for Heat, currently shooting jumpers alongside Danny Granger.
Heat D-League team fell to 1-1 Saturday with a 124-104 home loss to Iowa. Center Khem Birch had 19 points and 11 rebounds in the loss.
Spoelstra says no change in injury status from yesterday. Wade and Cole will not play tonight. Everyone else is available.
Norris Cole and Dwyane Wade both out tonight against the Hornets.
Erik Spoelstra says Dwyane Wade is out and Cole is out.
Because it's Sunday and we're in Miami
PER Leaders: 35 | Anthony Davis (35.9) 34 | 33 | 32 | 31 | 30 | 29 | 28 | 27 | D. Cousins (27.7) 26 | C. Paul (26.6); S. Curry (26.5)
The NBA's West has 10 teams over .500, plus Thunder likely to get there when healthy. The East has five, w/ Hawks, Heat 1 over.
Projected Anthony Davis as Defensive Player of the Year before the season. May have chosen the wrong award.
James Capers, David Guthrie, Derek Richardson your referees for tonight's Heat-Hornets, 6 p.m., AmericanAirlines Arena (Sun Sports)
ACC announces Pitt-at-Miami at 7 p.m. on ESPN2 next Saturday and UF-FSU at 3:30 p.m. on ESPN.
UM now being embarrassed 30-7. UM has played 16 ACC road games under Golden & allowed at least 30 points in 11. But offense no help tonight.
It's about time that Dwane Casey starts getting some attention
I think A) The Cavs will get there and B) Spoelstra should get a lot more credit for how he handled that start four years ago
What's happening with the Cavaliers is incredible, can't-look-away theater.
The Heat survive Mt. Vucevic -- again -- as Chris Bosh (32 points, 10 rebounds) is now back on track. Charlotte in Miami tomorrow.
With UM down 20-7 & in danger of falling to 6-5, Heat moves to 7-6 with 99-92 win at Orlando. Bosh 32 points, 10 boards.
Best games of the season for both Bosh and Chalmers to power the Heat victory vs Magic tonight.
Toronto started 18 down in Cleveland, and may win by 20.
Heat, led by Chalmers and Bosh, have picked a good time to play their best basketball tonight with a 10-2 run in the 4th quarter.
Spoelstra going with a tight, mostly eight-man rotation, McRoberts only with five minutes.
Assistant coach Dwyane Wade now up, saying Ben Gordon dipped his shoulder to draw the foul. You know, like Wade does.
The Heat need Chris Bosh to close this thing out. Would do wonders for his, and team's, confidence going forward.
As second half begins for UM-Virginia, keep in mind UM has been outscored 150-53 in the second half of its past eight losses.
If Dewayne Dedmon is outplaying Chris Andersen, the Heat are in trouble.
Chris Andersen was a great fit with LeBron. Now, doesn't have same spirit, doesn't get same opportunities.
Heat 68, Magic 67 going into fourth quarter. Bosh with 18. Vucevic with 21 points and 16 rebounds.
Might be time for Haslem to get some of Andersen's minutes
Scoreboard says Magic with 17 second-chance points. Feels like a lot more. A lot more. Seems like all 21 of Vucevic's points are from there.
UM, down 13-7 at halftime to subpar Va. team, being outgained 214-178 and allowing QB with nation's 97th-best passer rating to go 16-22-144
So how is Nik Vucevic up to 11 rebounds? Volleyball with his own misses.
And if Nik Vucevic is going to shoot jumpers, it's going to leave the Heat at a net gain.
Mario Chalmers at his best in attack mode. That's been the case tonight.
Wow, and USC with an in-kind boneheaded move.
That's about as brutal a start as even the most pessimistic UCLA fan could have dreamed up.
The Raptors' bench just trimmed an 18-point deficit to three in Cleveland. Lou Williams gives them something they needed last season.
Miami got in the paint a little more in the second quarter. Will lose this game if it's all jumpers.
Greg Oden in the crowd in Cleveland tonight. Camera caught him laughing. Which is not something I can remember seeing him do last season.
Heat 49, Magic 46 at half. Heat finally getting to rim. Bosh with 14 points, five rebounds at the intermission. Napier with nine off bench.
Mario Chalmers has made himself invaluable.
Now 24-2 Magic in the paint, as Spoelstra calls time with Heat down 37-36.
Now 20-2 Magic over Heat in paint.
Elfrid Payton's hair. That is all.
Heat being outscored 16-2 in the paint.
With Deng's inconsistency, McRoberts' rust & Granger's unavailability, the re-signing of Chalmers stands out as a rare positive so far.
Heat 22, Magic 18 after one. Bosh with seven points, five rebounds, including his 7,000th career
Josh McRoberts dribbles through his legs, then passes it through James Ennis' legs. Turnover.
Shannon Brown not only starts, but goes first 9:15 for Heat.
Rough start for Luol Deng, a couple of missed layups and a turnover.
The Heat open 4 of 4 on 3-pointers, including 2 of 2 by Shawne Williams.
The Heat are on the road, so of course they're playing in their home whites.
For those asking, Norris Cole's dislocated digit is his left middle finger.
Interestingly, while Wade is sitting with a strained left hamstring he worked pregame with significant bracing on his right knee.
Shannon Brown starting for Heat in backcourt alongside Mario Chalmers. Also starting: Bosh, Deng, Shawne Williams.
Cole and Wade officially listed as inactive for Heat.
Spoelstra says Wade, Cole out.
Just got out of a movie. WAKE. FOREST. FOOTBALL.
Tobias Harris out for Magic tonight due to calf strain.
