An injury-filled contest provides the Heat with an opportunity to get back on track. In recent games, Miami has been outmatched due to the absence of multiple stars. However, multiple key players are sidelined for Charlotte, leaving Jimmy Butler to lead them to a victory.

Miami’s depth allows them to take advantage of matchups where both teams are dealing with crucial injuries.
