Josh Lewenberg: C.J. Miles jokes about all the random ailments that have befallen him this season: "I don’t leave my house no more. I put bubble-wrap on the way back to my car, and I call Scotty the trainer and tell him I made it home safely. I set cameras up so he can watch me from his house."
Josh Lewenberg: Everyone's available for the Raptors tonight, including Miles, who missed the last 2 games with an illness.
Josh Lewenberg: Miles ate something in funky in Orlando, had trouble getting through that Magic game before missing the next two. Sounds (and looks) like he's feeling better. He's had an eventful season, man.
Eric Smith: CJ Miles is out tonight. Dental procedure. Serge Ibaka (knee) is probable. #RTZ #Raptors
Josh Lewenberg: C.J. Miles (shoulder) returns from his one-game absence today but the Raptors will sit Serge Ibaka out with a sore left knee.
Josh Lewenberg: Casey says CJ Miles (flu) still isn't 100% but will play vs Wizards. Raptors are at full strength tonight
Josh Lewenberg: No CJ Miles (flu) tonight. Siakam should take his spot in rotation but that still leaves 11 guys & a decision to be made at C (JV/Yak/Bebe)

Barry Jackson: Herro told me yesterday he is hopeful about playing tomorrow. But if medical staff thinks it’s a mistake (quite possible), he likely won’t play. As of yesterday, he had discomfort running. No Heat access today
Anthony Chiang: The Heat is listing Herro (left groin strain), Kyle Lowry (left hamstring strain), Max Strus (right hamstring strain), P.J. Tucker (left knee irritation) and Gabe Vincent (left hamstring strain) as questionable for Game 5. Jimmy Butler is not on the injury report.
Darren Wolfson: JD Davison of Alabama was among draft prospects in with the #Timberwolves today. Bigger headline: New POBO Tim Connelly is said to have been in the gym. In other words, he’s already grinding. #RaisedByWolves

Zach LaVine underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Tuesday in Los Angeles. Chicago Bulls executives are in Los Angeles to attend various agency pro days in advance of next month’s NBA Draft and were in close contact with the two-time All-Star guard, who is expected to begin a short rehabilitation period shortly.
