Here’s the play where PJ Tucker hurt his left knee. You can see him grab at it after closing out on Horford. And we clearly limited for the remainder of the first half. pic.twitter.com/I63ng8lHbf11:06 AM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat’s playoff fate rests in power of healing for 36-, 37-year-old starters. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h… Is there time for Kyle Lowry and P.J. Tucker to the rescue? Or will it all rest on how much heavy lifting Jimmy Butler can endure? – 10:18 AM
Sirius XM NBA @SiriusXMNBA
Is this Celtics-Heat series over already?
If Kyle Lowry doesn’t return, @Brian Scalabrine thinks it is.

‘They set out to embarrass us. They did embarrass us.’ Jimmy Butler sounds off after Celtics destroyed his Heat in Game 2; PJ Tucker to seek MRI on his knee @The Athletic theathletic.com/news/celtics-h…12:03 AM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Dr. Butler says he believes PJ Tucker will be all right. – 11:45 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Putting everybody’s recency bias aside from tonight
This Heat team NEEDS PJ Tucker on this run
That’ll be the focus now – 11:30 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Heat said Lowry is making progress but doesn’t describe him as close to returning – 11:25 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Spo said PJ Tucker insists that he’ll be good to go. He’ll be evaluated again tomorrow, of course. – 11:21 PM
Surya Fernandez @SuryaHeatNBA
Not sure if even a healthy Kyle Lowry, or realistically anything close to resembling that at this point, would be this much of a difference maker. But it would be a start, if he can come back soon. Tucker hopefully too. – 10:54 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
PJ Tucker is out for the game with a left knee contusion – 10:23 PM
JD Shaw @JShawNBA

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
PJ Tucker (left knee) out for rest of tonight. – 10:23 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Looks like Jayson Tatum got poked in the eye by PJ Tucker on that last drive, or hit near his eye. He was grabbing at it during that entire exchange. – 9:44 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Now Grant Williams did the “too small” gesture after scoring over PJ Tucker lol. – 9:44 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Grant Williams hitting PJ Tucker with the too small is a glitch in the matrix – 9:43 PM
Mark Murphy @Murf56
Rather rough start for Rob Williams, including getting beat by PJ Tucker for an offensive rebound and foul. – 8:59 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
PJ Tucker being super aggressive so far. Celtics are going to have Robert Williams on him with this starting lineup and he’s tried to make a couple of plays off the bounce already. – 8:49 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
The PJ Tucker scoring display? – 8:47 PM

More on this storyline

Kyle Lowry remains out because of a strained left hamstring, but his impact is still being felt through Gabe Vincent. Vincent has filled in for the injured Lowry as the Miami Heat’s starting point guard during most of its playoff run. The Heat entered Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals at FTX Arena on Thursday night with a perfect 7-0 record this postseason with Vincent in the starting lineup. “I feel like my IQ has grown a lot being around him,” Vincent said of Lowry’s influence in their first season as teammates. “Learning how to read defenses differently. I think I’ve become a much better passer. A lot of that has to do with being able to see things develop or see where I can get guys the ball where the defense can’t get it. I think you see that most for me particularly with pitching the ball ahead. -via Miami Herald / May 19, 2022
