Miami Heat Index: Miami Blows Another One In Minnesota

3 of 5

WARM: Williams, Andersen, Ennis, Spo

PG. Miami Heat. MARIO CHALMERS. C+. <i>Stats: 31 Min, 5-11 FG, 0-0 3FG, 2-2 FT, 3 REB, 5 AST, 1 STL, 0 BLK, 3 TO, 12 PTS </i><br /> Just when Miami’s point guard situation seemingly couldn’t get any worse, Mario Chalmers went down with what appeared to be a bad injury in the second quarter. Chalmers would return, with what’s being called a shin contusion. Gotta give him credit for fighting back.

C-. <i>Stats: 21 Min, 2-6 FG, 1-2 3FG, 1-2 FT, 3 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 0 BLK, 1 TO, 6 PTS </i><br /> Granger was able to contribute a bit early on. Take what you can get.. SF. Miami Heat. DANNY GRANGER

C. <i>Stats: 12 Min, 1-2 FG, 0-0 3FG, 1-2 FT, 5 REB, 0 AST, 1 STL, 1 BLK, 0 TO, 3 PTS </i><br /> With Hassan Whiteside getting 36 minutes, there wasn’t much for scraps for Birdman. As always, he played well enough in his short minutes. When the Heat are giving up leads with Whiteside out, it isn’t necessarily Andersen’s fault.. C. Miami Heat. CHRIS ANDERSEN

C-. <i>Stats: 14 Min, 1-3 FG, 1-1 3FG, 0-0 FT, 0 REB, 0 AST, 1 STL, 0 BLK, 0 TO, 3 PTS</i><br /> Johnson didn’t contribute much in terms of scoring, but he handled the ball in lieu of Chalmers a bit in the first half. He’s got plenty of potential as a two-way, combo guard. It seems likely he’ll be signed for the rest of the season.. G. Miami Heat. TYLER JOHNSON

C. <i>Stats: 25 Min, 2-8 FG, 2-5 3FG, 0-0 FT, 3 REB, 7 AST, 1 STL, 0 BLK, 2 TO, 6 PTS </i><br /> Shabazz Napier took some shots and made some of them, too. He also seemed a little more comfortable running the offense. On one play, he found Chris Bosh <a href=. PG. Miami Heat. SHABAZZ NAPIER
