Reed will draw the start at center for Tuesday's preseason game against the Magic, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.

Hassan Whiteside is not with the team following a death in his family, so Reed will be elevated into the top unit for Tuesday's exhibition matchup. With guys like Josh McRoberts (foot) and Luke Babbitt (groin) also out, Reed could see extended minutes, although the likes of Derrick Williams, James Johnson and Udonis Haslem could absorb some additional minutes as well.
