The No. 4 New York Knicks are in Miami to face the No. 7 Heat, a half-game back from the No. 6 spot in the Eastern Conference. Miami won its previous two games, while New York lost its last two games in heartbreaking fashion.

Like the Knicks, the Heat have been dealing with a couple of injuries. The last time New York played Miami (Jan. 27), Julius Randle dislocated his shoulder, and OG Anunoby hurt his elbow. Randle has yet to make his return to the lineup. Anunoby returned for a few games, but elbow inflammation has kept him sidelined for the past seven games.

Tyler Herro hasn't played since Feb. 23, and when he'll return is still unknown. He's been dealing with right foot tendonitis. Before getting hurt, Herro averaged a career-high 20.8 points per game on 43.7% shooting from the field and 39.9% from deep. Heat fans hope he'll be back in time for the playoffs, as he missed the majority of last year's NBA Finals run.
