Miami Heat News: Chris Andersen Out 2-3 Weeks

The Miami Heat’s injury list just keeps piling up. You can now add Chris Andersen to that report—again.
Ira Winderman of The Sun Sentinel reports that Andersen himself stated that he’ll be out two-to-three weeks due to a high ankle sprain he suffered versus the Charlotte Hornets last Sunday. The injury forced Andersen to miss the Heat’s loss to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night.
Because of said injury, the Heat had already prepared for life without ‘Birdman’ by cutting guard Shannon Brown and signing center Hassan Whiteside just a day after Andersen’s injury versus the Hornets.
The 2014-15 season has been an injury-plagued campaign for the ‘Birdman.’ After playing the first two games, Andersen has struggled to remain healthy. In a 114-96 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on November 1st, the 36-year-old big man suffered a rib injury. The rib injury forced Andersen to miss the next five games.
In the seven appearances he made following his recovery from the injury, the vet…

Miami Heat News: Dwyane Wade Slated to Return Sunday vs. Knicks

After a seven-game hiatus due to injury, it appears that Dwyane Wade is ready to make his return.
Ira Winderman of The Sun Sentinel reports that Wade should make his return on Sunday versus the New York Knicks after missing the last seven games due to a hamstring injury.

Dwyane Wade said his goal is to “hopefully” play Sunday in New York after missing seven games with a strained left hamstring.

Wade injured his hamstring on a layup versus the Indiana Pacers on November 12. While the veteran guard has stated his intention to return Sunday, there is no official decision regarding when Wade will exactly return.

Keys to the Game

With Dwyane Wade out with a hamstring injury, the Warriors can focus their solid defense on slowing down Bosh. Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut, two great interior defenders, will be charged with the task.

For the Heat, they need to find some source of offense beyond Bosh. Mario Chalmers has been that guy lately, averaging 20 points and seven assists over his last six games.

Warriors Injury Update: Leandro Barbosa and Andrew Bogut are considered ‘questionable’ for tonight’s game vs. the Heat

The Golden State Warriors will put their impressive 10 – 2 record on the line today when they meet up with Chris Bosh and the 8 – 6 Miami Heat. Unfortunately, the Warriors will be without the services of both Leandro Barbosa and Andrew Bogut for today’s contest. Both players sustained injuries during Sunday’s 91 – 86 victory over the Thunder. Barbosa scored only one point before leaving with a right knee sprain six minutes into the first quarter, while Bogut played only eight minutes before suffering an orbital contusion. The good news is, according to R.J. White of CBS Sports, the CT scan on Bogut’s head came back negative. As reported by our very own KKauffman1969, David Lee will remain ‘out’ and likely won’t return until sometime in December. 
Today’s tip-off between the Warriors and the Heat is scheduled for 4:30 PM EST and can be found on NBA TV. Follow @RyJones4 Like what you’re reading? Subscribe to our email list for daily injury updates! Email Add

Miami Heat News: Heat Waive Shannon Brown, Sign Hassan Whiteside

Looks like Shannon Brown’s Miami Heat tenure didn’t last too long.
Less than three months after being signed by the Heat, Brown was waived to make room for center Hassan Whiteside. The 6’4″ shooting guard appeared in five games for the Heat this season, and averaged four points in 17.8 minutes per action. He had started the Heat’s previous game versus the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday night, but posted a scoreless stat line in 17 minutes of playing time.
In nine NBA seasons, Brown has played with eight different teams. He was expected to be the primary backup shooting guard behind Dwyane Wade, but Mario Chalmers’ strong play off of the bench at shooting guard led to the veteran guard being dispensable.
Brown’s contract was non-guaranteed, as is rookie Andre Dawkins‘ contract. The Heat elected to keep Dawkins instead of the journeyman guard.
Whiteside hasn’t appeared in an NBA game since the 2011-12 season. Originally drafted No. 33 overall by the Sacramento Kings in the 2010 NBA Draft…
