With backup center Willie Reed and guard Josh Richardson sidelined, the Miami Heat are back down to 10 healthy bodies for tonight game in Milwaukee.
Reed took an elbow to the sternum from Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins nine days ago and re-aggravated the injury Tuesday in Golden State.
“He has a bruised sternum that just didn’t get better the last two days,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “It’s a little bit better but not good enough to play.”
