Seeking to rebound after a poor showing in their loss to the visiting Atlanta Hawks that snapped their six-game win streak, the Heat are boosted by the return of Jimmy Butler but Bam Adebayo (knee soreness) will be replaced by KZ Okpala in the starting lineup. The team had listed both starters as questionable in the injury report earlier. Goran Dragic will be coming off the bench.
Helping matters will be the absence of All-Star big man Zion Williamson and sharpshooter JJ Redick for the Pelicans.
- Bam Adebayo: out (knee soreness)
- Meyers Leonard: out for season (shoulder)
- Avery Bradley: out (calf)
- Zion Williamson (right fifth toe irritation)
- JJ Redick (right heel soreness)
Tipoff: 8:30 p.m.
