The veteran contributed seven points, 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 32 minutes in Game 5, and his official status for Friday will be updated closer to game time.

    Tucker has not missed any time or faced any limitations during the playoffs, so there's no reason to believe that will change in Game 4. He's coming off of a postseason-high 17 points -- to go with seven boards and three steals -- in Saturday's Game 3 victory.

  • Heat's P.J. Tucker: Questionable for Monday

    Tucker is questionable for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals at Boston on Monday due to left knee irritation, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    The veteran forward played through the injury during Game 3 on Saturday and put up 17 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in 38 minutes. Given that performance, Tucker seems likely to be available for Monday's contest.

  • Heat's P.J. Tucker: Puts up 17 points in win

    Tucker closed Saturday's 109-103 win over the Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals with 17 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one block and three steals in 38 minutes.

    Tucker registered his best scoring output of the entire playoff run and did it in a game where the Heat needed all the help they could get following Jimmy Butler's knee injury. Tucker's contributions often go beyond the box score, but there's no question he'd become an even more valuable player if he can put up these numbers on a regular basis. For what it's worth, he has scored in double digits in three of his last five appearances.
