The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs will both be missing key players as they face each other on national TV Wednesday night. Miami will be without Hassan Whiteside for the third straight game and the Spurs have yet to see Kawhi Leonard play this season. Dion Waiters will also be a game time decision. Regardless, the Spurs are 3-0 and Miami is 2-1. The Heat will have to play a good game to get this win.

Heat have a lot of questions to answer after only 3 games into the season

Injuries and narrow wins present opportunities for Rooks 1 and 2 to show their stuff Rodney McGruder’s stress fracture opened up one wing spot in the Miami Heat roster. Hassan Whiteside’s third missed game gives more minutes for other players on the court. Goran Dragic (thigh contusion) and Dion Waiters (ankle) are banged up early on. INJURY UPDATE: Goran Dragić (thigh contusion) and Dion Waiters (ankle) both sat out of today’s team practice. Hassan Whiteside (knee) has been ruled out of tomorrow’s game vs the San Antonio Spurs.

Heat hang on to beat Hawks 104-93

Despite blowing a 21 point lead, Miami was able to hang on and put the Hawks away for their second win in a row. 1st Quarter: The Heat were slow to start, blowing multiple possessions on missed shots and turnovers. Luckily, Goran Dragic and Josh Richardson would get them going. Miami would take the lead at 8 minute mark of the first quarter and continue to build on that. Despite scoring some crafty buckets, Dion Waiters got into foul trouble early and was replaced by Tyler Johnson. The Hawks and Heat would go back and forth for awhile, but eventually the Hawks would pull back within 3...

Whiteside to miss Heat home opener, Waiters ‘feeling good’ about ankle

Whiteside to miss Heat home opener, Waiters ‘feeling good’ about ankle

Whiteside is listed as day-to-day moving forward. As I mentioned here earlier, Dion Waiters said that he tweaked his troublesome left ankle three times in the Miami Heat’s season opener Wednesday night. That’s the same ankle that caused Waiters to miss the final 13 games of the regular season and led him to consider surgery over the summer. For a Miami Heat fan, seeing Waiters head back to the locker room in the third quarter to have the ankle re-taped may have been an inauspicious sign. Not so, according to the man himself. Waiters said that his ankle feels good as he prepared for...

One play says it all about the opening night Miami loss in Orlando

One play says it all about the opening night Miami loss in Orlando

Defense leads to offense - for the Orlando Magic. Surrendering 126 points in a game looks more like the 11-30 Miami Heat, than the 30-11 team of last season. One play illustrates how the Heat mantra of defense leading to offense was used against them, time and time again in the disappointing loss against the Orlando Magic. The action starts with an Aaron Gordon block at the rim against Dion Waiters. The same Gordon then immediately sprints down the court, easily beating Kelly Olynyk for an uncontested finish at the rim. .@Double0AG does it all! pic.twitter.com/Fb18vPqwIt— Orlando...

How would Dion Waiters ankle issue affect his trade value for the Heat?

Zach Lowe had a healthy Waiters in a fake “crazy trade” scenario with the Pacers. Until ankle concerns cloud the picture. Zach Lowe had Dion Waiters and Justise Winslow of the Miami Heat as part of a "crazy trade” package with the Indiana Pacers during the season. “Among my favorite versions of this: Winslow and Dion Waiters to the Pacers in exchange for Bojan Bogdanovic (on a semi-expiring contract), Cory Joseph, and perhaps some throw-in to make Miami feel less crappy about punting on Winslow.” Manny Navarro wrote Waiters' left ankle might be a huge problem for Miami this...

Dion Waiters says he tweaked troublesome ankle

Dion Waiters says he tweaked troublesome ankle

Waiters missed the final 13 games of last season due to the same ankle. Dion Waiters had a forgettable season opener after signing a four-year, $52 million deal with the Miami Heat this past summer. We may know why. In the locker room following the Heat’s 116-109 loss to the Orlando Magic Wednesday, Waiters revealed that he tweaked his troublesome left ankle three times in the game. He briefly went to the locker room in the third quarter to have it re-taped. Waiters said he tweaked left ankle 3 times tonight. "It’s just annoying, man. It sucks, for real. The littlest thing.
