Miami Heat News: Tyler Johnson to Return, Justise Winslow out vs. Brooklyn Nets

1 Min Read

The Miami Heat will have one player return on Monday night versus the Brooklyn Nets, but they’ll also have another player sidelined due to injury.

Tyler Johnson is expected to play tonight versus the Nets, despite missing the past five games due to a shoulder injury. Though Johnson is expected to return, small forward Justise Winslow (ankle) will not play, as he has been ruled out for tonight’s game by head coach Erik Spoelstra.

Starting center Hassan Whiteside is also dealing with an illness, and is questionable to play in Monday night’s game.

The Heat will play the Nets tonight at American Airlines Arena with tipoff set for 7:30 PM EST. The game will be broadcast locally on Sun Sports.
