McMillan on Heat potentially playing without Lowry: “There are few ways they can go with him out of the lineup. … They’ve played without him before.” Said Butler, Herro and Vincent can handle point guard duties if Lowry can’t play. – 5:22 PM

This is an interesting time pregame. If Kyle Lowry were to try to test out his hamstring, this likely would be the beginning of that timeframe. pic.twitter.com/1tVILoiXKW4:56 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
The Heat are going to need this tonight from Bam
Seal, bump, up
This is a game where the team should be telling him to aim for 15-17 shot attempts if no Lowry pic.twitter.com/lQMo0XFjiw11:21 AM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Think one of the primary offensive adjustments if no Lowry is to increase guard screening heavily for Jimmy
Getting the smaller guards on him is crucial, and if they continue to hedge and recover, it’s an advantage still on the roll
A lot relies on Gabe/Max hitting early tho – 11:07 AM

More on this storyline

Tim Reynolds: Spo on Kyle: “You have to be smart about it. … We have everybody else available and that’s what we’re focused on right now.” -via Twitter @ByTimReynolds / April 24, 2022

Ira Winderman: Erik Spoelstra would not say if Gabe Vincent will start in place of Lowry, “We’ll find out, but he’s going to play a lot.” And, no, I did not ask about Oladipo (sorry, but you look Spoelstra directly into those eyes in a dark pregame interview room). -via Twitter @IraHeatBeat / April 24, 2022

Marc J. Spears: Heat say Kyle Lowry (hamstring strain), Bam Adebayo (quad), P.J. Tucker (calf) and Caleb Martin (ankle) are all listed as questionable to play in tomorrow’s Game 4 vs the Hawks. Gabe Vincent (toe) is probable. -via Twitter @MarcJSpears / April 23, 2022
