Both of these teams have been impressive to start the season, as they are two of the league’s best defensive teams. They will remain aggressive in this game, as I anticipate a battle.

Injury Reports Heat = Clipper

The Los Angeles Clippers (14-11) will play the Miami Heat on Thursday in Miami, FL. Inside the FTX Arena, the game will begin at 7:30 p.m. EST.

The Miami Heat were defeated by the Detroit Pistons 116-96. In that game, Miami struggled on both ends of the field and will look to rebound in this one. They must improve on both ends of the court if they are to beat the Clippers at home.

Concerning injuries, both Gabe Vincent PG (Knee) and Dewayne Dedmon C (Foot) are listed as questionable for this game.

Jimmy Butler is questionable for Thursday’s game against the Clippers due to a lack of conditioning, according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.

Butler returned from a seven-game absence due to a knee injury in early December and played in back-to-back games before sitting out the second half of a back-to-back Tuesday.

The star forward is now in danger of missing a second straight game due to injury, but he is only one of eight Heat players expected to be game-time decisions in Thursday’s game.

Tyler Herro (ankle) is expected to play against the Clippers on Thursday.

Herro is still listed as probable due to a lingering ankle injury that kept him out for two weeks in mid-November, but he’s appeared in seven straight games since then.

The Los Angeles Clippers are coming off a 119-117 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Leonard hit the game-winning shot in his first game back as the Clippers look to get back on track. If they want to compete with the Heat on the road, they must be aggressive on offense.

In terms of injuries, Luke Kennard SG (Rest), John Wall PG (Knee), Norman Powell SF (Groin), and Marcus Morris SF are all out.
