  • Heat's P.J. Tucker: Starting second half

    Tucker (ankle) has returned to the court and will start the second half of Tuesday's Game 1 against Boston, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    It appears Tucker was able to shake off the injury back in the Miami locker room, so he'll be available as the Heat start the second half of Game 1. He finished the first half with two points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal.

  • Heat's P.J. Tucker: Exits to locker room

    Tucker appeared to suffer a right ankle injury during the second quarter of Tuesday's Game 1 against Boston and limped to the locker room shortly thereafter, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

    Tucker was limping substantially as he made his way back to the Miami locker room, but the extent of the injury remains unclear at this time. If he's unable to return to the game, Caleb Martin could see increased run in the second half of Game 1.

  • Heat's Caleb Martin: Will be available

    Martin (ankle) will play in Tuesday's Game 1 against Boston, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Martin is one of several players who continues to land on the injury report despite not actually being injured. He could pick up a few minutes off the bench, but his role was fairly limited to close out the Heat's Round 2 series against Philly.

  • Heat's P.J. Tucker: Cleared for Game 1

    Tucker (calf) will play in Tuesday's Game 1 against Boston, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    As has been the case throughout the playoffs, Tucker's calf injury is no longer a concern, but the Heat continue to include him on their injury report. He'll be available for his usual, full workload.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Cleared to play

    Strus (hamstring) will play in Tuesday's Game 1 against Boston, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Strus is one of several players who the Heat continue to include on their injury reports, despite the fact that he's not injured. Expect Strus to start at his usual two-guard spot Tuesday.

  • Heat's Gabe Vincent: Good to go

    Vincent (hamstring) will play in Tuesday's Game 1 against Boston, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Vincent is not injured but the Heat continue to include him on their injury reports. He'll likely log another start in place of Kyle Lowry (hamstring) in Game 1.

  • Heat's P.J. Tucker: Back on injury report

    Tucker (calf) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Celtics.

    Once again, there's no reason to believe Tucker is still bothered by his calf injury, but the Heat continue to list him on the injury report anyway. It's unclear if this is a misplaced effort at gamesmanship by Miami, but Tucker's status is not in any jeopardy. The defensive-minded veteran averaged 8.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 made threes per game in Round 2 against Philly.

  • Heat's Gabe Vincent: Lands on injury report yet again

    Vincent (hamstring) is questionable for Tuesday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Vincent has yet to miss a game during the playoffs but continues to land on the injury report. With Kyle Lowry (hamstring) ruled out for Game 1, Vincent will likely draw his third straight start and his seventh of the playoffs overall. As a starter in the postseason, Vincent has averaged 9.8 points, 3.7 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 28.2 minutes per game.

  • Heat's Max Strus: On injury report again

    Strus (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Celtics.

    As has been the case for most of the postseason, Strus is not actually injured, but the Heat continue to give him a phantom designation for unknown reasons. In Round 2 against Philly, Strus did not miss any time, nor did he face any limitations. He finished out the series with 20 points, 11 rebounds and five assists in Miami's Game 6 victory.

  • Heat's Caleb Martin: Shockingly lands on injury report

    Martin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Celtics.

    Martin was battling a sprained left ankle near the end of Miami's Round 1 series against Atlanta, and ever since then the team has insisted on keeping his name on the injury report. Martin is yet to miss any time, however, and there's no indication that he's still hampered by the injury.

  • Heat's Kyle Lowry: Ruled out for Game 1

    Lowry (hamstring) is listed as out for Tuesday's Game 1 against Boston.

    As anticipated, Lowry will remain out for at least one more contest as he continues to battle the sore left hamstring that's plagued him for much of the postseason. This will be Lowry's seventh missed game since the start of the playoffs and his third consecutive absence. Expect Gabe Vincent (hamstring) to make another start at point guard in the veteran's absence.

  • Heat's Kyle Lowry: Not practicing Monday

    Lowry (hamstring) didn't practice Monday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Lowry did manage to do some individual work on the side Monday according to head coach Erik Spoelstra, but after missing the last two days of practice, it appears he's unlikely to play in Tuesday's Game 1 against the Celtics. His official status for Tuesday will be clearer when Miami releases its official injury report, but for now it seems likely that he'll remain sidelined.
