The Miami Heat will face the Denver Nuggets for their first meaningful game in the NBA bubble in Orlando, Fla.

However, the Heat will be going against a diminished Nuggets squad, as three of their starters have been ruled out for the game.

As for Miami, Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra confirmed on Saturday that the entire roster is healthy and ready to go.

The news marks a major blow for a Nuggets team that is hoping to potentially overtake the Los Angeles Clippers for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

Despite the report, fans should not expect the Heat to take their foot off the gas against a depleted Nuggets roster. After all, the Nuggets will still have All-Star big man Nikola Jokic on the floor.

The Heat are currently the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference. Surely, they will look to win as many games as possible leading up to the playoffs in an attempt to improve their seeding in the postseason.
