Report: Miami Heat Could Be Without Four Players Against Charlotte Hornets
- Updated: March 8, 2017
Even though every player went through shootaround Wednesday morning, the Miami Heat could be extremely shorthanded against the Charlotte Hornets.
#CHAvsMIA INJURY UPDATE: J. Johnson (elbow) is listed as questionable. T. Johnson (shoulder), Babbitt (back) & White (ankle) all probable.

Looks like Tyler back but perhaps not James Johnson. https://t.co/ntuQmTN3xc

Tyler Johnson was upgraded from questionable to probable in the last 24 hours, so there’s a good chance he plays against the Hornets. However, his bench partner James Johnson is dealing with an elbow injury that has restricted his ability to shoot and is unlikely to play.
Spo says James Johnson's issue with elbow no longer about pain or infection. It's more mobility. Still not shooting

If Okaro White is unable to play, Miami might end up using Udonis Haslem at the center position. The Miami native has only appeared in 16 games this season but the team’s latest round of injuries could force Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra to call on the 14-year veteran.
Miami’s matchup against Charlotte will tip off at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast locally on Fox Sports Sun.
