Miami may just want to rest Adebayo and Herro on the second night of a back-to-back, and the Rockets are one of the league’s worst teams.
Houston is just 15-42 this season, and Miami may be able to get a win without any of its top guns.
The Heat are currently 29-28 and are the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Miami would love to make a push down the stretch of the 2020-21 season to avoid the league’s play-in tournament for the postseason.
