UPDATE: Jan. 12, 5:36 p.m. — The Heat have ruled Leonard out, while Olynyk and Vincent are available. So they’ll have the required 8 players to field a team for Tuesday’s game vs. the Sixers.

The Miami Heat have placed 8 players into health and safety protocols, including Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Avery Bradley. Here’s the full list of players who will be unavailable for Tuesday’s game vs. the Philadelphia 76ers courtesy of Ira Winderman:

So that leaves the Heat with Tyler Herro, Precious Achiuwa, Andre Iguodala, Duncan Robinson, Chris Silva and Max Strus as players who will be available. Kelly Olynyk, Meyers Leonard and Gabe Vincent are considered questionable, so two of those three would need to be available in order for this game to be played.

Meanwhile, the Sixers will be without Seth Curry (covid-19) and Ben Simmons (knee) on Monday vs. the Atlanta Hawks. Tobias Harris, Shake Milton and Matisse Thybulle are also expected to be out Monday with Joel Embiid listed as probable.
