The Miami Heat may not be producing like they’ve been known for in the past, but their trolling game is unbeaten.
Following a $25,000 fine imposed by the NBA for failing to disclose accurate multi-player game availability status ahead of their 110-108 win over Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.
The league’s statement on Friday read, “The NBA announced today that the Miami Heat has been fined $25,000 for violating the league’s injury reporting rules.
One could imagine that Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra was involved in injury reporting for 16 players
“The Heat did not disclose an accurate multi-player game availability status in the Paycom Center ahead of their Dec. 14 game against Oklahoma City.”
In response, the Heat made sure they were extra cautious ahead of their game against San Antonio tomorrow.
Miami named its entire active roster – a meager 16 players – in its latest injury report.
Tyler Herro was the star for Miami in its most recent win, a 111-108 triumph over Houston
The players were given different odds ahead of their away game in Mexico City.
Jimmy Butler, who missed Wednesday’s win, is rated as likely, as is starguard Tyler Herro, while Kyle Lowry – among others – is a questionable.
The Spurs Heat game will be the first of two international NBA games to be played this season and the 12th of its kind in Mexico.
Jimmy Butler was listed as likely in the Heat’s detailed injury report ahead of Saturday
December 2019 was the last time Mexico City fans witnessed an NBA game. Dallas took care of the Detroit Pistons two days before San Antonio’s win over Phoenix on the 14th.
Miami is struggling to regain its impressive form from last season and is currently 8th in the Eastern Conference with a .500 record of 15-15.
Although signs are positive despite the recent injury report, the Heat have won three in a row.
