Miami Heat InjuriesUp to the minute news on Miami Heat Injuries
The Heat’s big dream of getting all five starters on the court together still has not happened. The team held Hassan Whiteside out of Friday morning’s practice with a strained right calf. He suffered the injury a week ago and has yet to practice. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra downplayed the injury and said the team is being cautious to avoid making it worse. Whiteside is considered day-to-day
So much for instant continuity. Then again, considering how last season went for the Miami Heat, having 95 percent of the roster available for Tuesday's start of training camp at Florida Atlantic represented a step forward.
Both Chris Bosh and Josh McRoberts, whose 2014 seasons ended prematurely due to injury, participated in the Miami Heat's first practice. Hassan Whiteside, however, sat out after straining a calf muscle.
