This very well could be the last NBA slate we see for a week or two depending on what the League decides to do at the Board of Governors meeting. So we’ll treat it like a normal Tuesday six-gamer. We’ve already had one game postponed — Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls. There’s also a chance that the game between the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers gets postponed if Miami can’t field an 8-player roster. So while there’s a lot to cover, we’re still going to be updating you on the latest lineup and injury news throughout the day.
