Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Billy Donovan was asked about Stanley Johnson being the hardship exemption player and couldn’t say much. According to Beth PR, the hardship player wasn’t in the building tonight. To be continued in Miami …. – 7:24 PM

Before tonight’s game, Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer told us George Hill (right knee hyperextenson) will be out again tonight.
This will be the third straight game he has missed. – 7:21 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Interesting twist for the Heat with Caleb Martin starting in place of sidelined Jimmy Butler. That allows Tyler Herro to offer instant offense off the bench. The question is whether there is enough early pop with starting lineup of Martin, Dedmon, Tucker, Robinson, Lowry. – 7:08 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
I mentioned the idea on @5OTF_ the other night with @Ethan J. Skolnick that Caleb Martin starting would make sense for a Khris Middleton defender
Didn’t think they’d actually do it though – 7:04 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Caleb Martin starting in Jimmy Butler’s place tonight instead of Tyler Herro, who remains in his sixth man role. – 7:03 PM

Here’s Alex Caruso getting some shots up before Bulls-Cavs. Billy Donovan said Caruso is “doing well” and team plans to ramp up his sprinting/cutting over next two days. Had been a Monday re-eval date, but Donovan added he’d know about Caruso’s avail vs. MIA “closer to game” pic.twitter.com/f9OJn5xgQY6:56 PM

It took him a little longer to ascend, but Giannis Antetokounmpo is 675 games into his NBA career (regular season and playoffs) and has been brushing shoulders with, yes, Michael Jordan and LeBron James for a while now in our Rolling Player Ratings. pic.twitter.com/2Ka7rF8kMr6:49 PM

Khris extended his season-long 20-point scoring streak to four games on Monday.

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Spoelstra’s takeaway after a day of film: “Getting to what we have done really well and do that more consistently. That’s what we focused on the last 24 hours. So it looks a little bit different without Bam and Jimmy and [Markieff] but we can get to our strengths more often.” pic.twitter.com/muPoTURl095:53 PM

Caleb Martin will warm up with the hope of playing tonight vs. Bucks. – 5:49 PM

Erik Spoelstra says Caleb Martin (knee) will warm up with the intention to play. – 5:48 PM

Billy Donovan, via Zoom from Cleveland, said the Bulls have been granted a hardship case for a roster spot from the league. Reported earlier via source: Stanley Johnson will meet team in Miami. – 5:34 PM

Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports
Donovan says Caruso (hamstring) is feeling good, will ramp up activity. Possible but still questionable for Miami. #Bulls5:34 PM

“People haven’t seen me for 4 years. I barely played in Utah. Then I was in Memphis and they only get, like, one national TV game a year.”
Wrote about Grayson Allen—yes, THAT Grayson Allen—being an important part of the defending-champion Bucks

Heat’s dwindling roster could become a problem for the ages. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h… Erik Spoelstra confident Tucker, Lowry are up to the minutes. Also: Herro, Haslem cited; All-Star voting announced. – 2:46 PM

How does Grayson Allen prepare for playing alongside Giannis? Bucks assistant coach Charles sometimes holds up a broom so that Allen can get a feel for how to read the floor over a player that size.
