- Updated: November 9, 2018

Wade (personal reasons) will miss tonight after being absent against the San Antonio Spurs due to the birth of his baby daughter.
Dragic (knee) will be present in warmups but will also miss Friday’s Eastern Conference showdown after being sidelined Wednesday against the Spurs. He’s hopeful, however, that he’ll see action on Saturday against the Washington Wizards.
Small forward Derrick Jones Jr. is ruled out with a bruised right knee that occurred Wednesday, forcing him to sit out the rest of the game after grabbing six rebounds in under 10 minutes.
Head coach Erik Spoelstra will have to go deep into his roster and afford some off the younger and minute-stripped players more opportunities in order to secure a win. Season-breakout players such as Rodney McGruder and Josh Richardson should salivate in the opportunity to showcase even more of what they can bring to the table with key players out.
