As the Heat make their final push for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference, they will have their usual roster available.

That includes Justise Winslow, who sprained his left ankle on Sunday. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said he was warming up with the intention to play, and Winslow confirmed in the locker room he will be active.

The Heat also expect to have Udonis Haslem despite initially listing him as out with a sprained foot. Spoelstra said Haslem ignored the medical staff’s assessment and insisted on being active.

Tyler Johnson, who hoped to play at least a couple regular-season games, will be inactive. He has been working back from rotator cuff surgery since Feb. 3.
