A flu bug running through the Miami Heat locker room will sideline both Chris Bosh and Ray Allen for Friday's home game against the Clippers, but Dwyane Wade, who was also hit with flu symptoms, is expected to play, according to multiple reports.
The flu also kept Bosh out of Wednesday night's game against the Houston Rockets.
While those three players are doubtful, the Clippers are hoping for some good health news. They could get point guard Chris Paul back for the game and possibly Blake Griffin and Chauncy Billups. All three practiced Thursday.
A knee injury has sidelined Paul for the Clippers' past nine games. Griffin is bothered by a hamstring injury and missed the last two games. A foot injury has limited Billups to three games this season.
