The Miami Heat are hurting and they’re hurting bad.
The Heat currently have eight players going through some sort of injury or ailment. The team is clearly struggling as a result, as they recently dropped their fourth straight game in a loss to the Toronto Raptors on Friday night. At 23-21, the team is tied for the seventh-best record in the Eastern Conference with the Boston Celtics.
“At this point, man, I don’t think I’ve got time to wait around to feel great,” he said. “We’re so many bodies down. I want to go out there and give our team what I can.”
“Beno Udrih (strained neck muscle) was somewhat close to playing Friday and fully expects to be back Monday. That would be a huge help for the Heat with Goran Dragic out.”
While Udrih is expected to be back on Monday, Goran Dragic (calf strain) won’t return until Friday’s game at Milwaukee at the very earliest.
