You can add the Heat to the list of teams that are struggling with COVID-19. Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Goran Dragic, Avery Bradley, Kendrick Nunn, Moe Harkless, KZ Okpala, and Udonis Haslem have all been ruled out for Tuesday’s contest vs. the 76ers due to health and safety protocols. Kelly Olynyk and Meyers Leonard as also listed as questionable with injuries. That leaves just six players who are not in the health and safety protocol or on the injury report.
This game is in serious jeopardy of not being played with essentially their entire roster on the sidelines. The NBA is reportedly discussing shutting down for 7-14 days to try and get a grip on the COVID-19 situation, and they have set a special Board of Governors meeting for Tuesday per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
