The Miami Heat may not be at full strength on Friday, but they’ll likely have at least one player back.
Small forward Justise Winslow returned to practice on Thursday after initially injuring his ankle in last Saturday’s win over the Orlando Magic. The rookie had been held out of the past two games after twisting his ankle.

“We’ll see. We’ll see how he responds to this.”
While it looks like the 19-year-old will be back in the lineup versus Dallas, Josh McRoberts has already been ruled out due to a knee injury. McRoberts hasn’t played since the December 9th loss to the Charlotte Hornets.
Winslow is averaging 5.9 points and 4.7 rebounds in just over 27 minutes per game, while McRoberts has averaged 3.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in just 20 appearances this season.
