Injuries: Hawks—Dewayne Dedmon (leg) and Mike Muscala (ankle) are out; Luke Babbitt (back) and John Collins (shoulder) are probable.
Heat—Hassan Whiteside (knee), James Johnson (ankle), Rodney McGruder (leg) and Okaro White (foot) are out; Justice Winslow (knee) is doubtful; Goran Dragic (elbow) and Dion Waiters (ill) are questionable.
What to watch for: The Hawks (6-23) have the worst record in the NBA. They’ve lost four straight games while the Bulls (8-20) have won five in a row.
Injury and illness could leave the Heat (15-14) with just eight players available for the game. James Johnson was injured early during Miami’s 90-85 victory over the Clippers on Saturday and is out for at least a week. Goran Dragic suffered an elbow injury late in that game and is questionable to play against the Hawks along with Dion Waiters, who missed shootaround because of illness.
The victory against the Clippers was the 455th for Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, who surpassed Pat Riley for the franchise’s all-time win mark.
