When/where: 7:30 p.m. today, AmericanAirlines Arena, Miami

TV: Fox Sports Southeast

Stream: Fox Sports Go

Radio: 92.9 The Game

Injuries: Hawks—

Heat–

 

What to watch for: The good news for the Hawks is that an MRI on Dennis Schroder’s left ankle showed nothing more serious than a sprain, as Schroder himself suspected following the game. The bad news for the Hawks is that Ersan Ilyasova also is out because of a knee injury.  With DeAndre’ Bembry also sidelined by injury, the Hawks are without their best player, another starter and a key rotation player while playing on a back-to-back against what figures to be their toughest opponent during the five-game trip.

Malcolm Delaney is the likely starter at point guard with Josh Magette as his backup. (The counter starts today on Magette’s 45-day limit on the NBA roster as a two-way player.) Mike Budenholzer’s choices at power forward are John Collins, Mike Muscala and Luke Babbitt.
