The last game the Heat played before the suspension of the season was when they hosted the Charlotte Hornets on March 11. The Hornets won the game by a score of 109-98.
The Heat’s two other scrimmages will be against the Utah Jazz on July 25 and the Memphis Grizzlies on July 28.
Currently, the Heat have a record of 41-24 and sit in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Miami’s first official game back will be on Aug. 1 against the Denver Nuggets.
