Heat will start Vincent, Butler, Strus, Tucker and Adebayo on Tuesday. Gabe Vincent will start for the injured Kyle Lowry, as expected.
Celtics will start White, Brown, Tatum, Grant Williams and Robert Williams on Tuesday. Derrick White and Robert Williams will move into the starting lineup to replace Marcus Smart and Al Horford, who are out tonight.
Al Horford (health and safety protocols) and Marcus Smart (foot) both out on Tuesday. This is a huge blow and could force Robert Williams (or Daniel Theis) and Derrick White into the starting lineup.
Otto Porter Jr. (foot) probable for Game 1 on Wednesday.
Kyle Lowry (hamstring) ruled out for Tuesday. Expect Gabe Vincent to start in his place again.
Caleb Martin (ankle), Max Strus (hamstring), P.J. Tucker (calf) and Gabe Vincent (hamstring) all questionable for Tuesday. I’d expect all four to play and these questionable tags are just precautionary.
Marcus Smart (foot) questionable for Tuesday; Robert Williams (knee) will be available with no minutes restriction. If Smart can’t go, expect Derrick White to start in his place.
Kyle Lowry (hamstring) didn’t practice and is closer to doubtful for Tuesday. If Lowry can’t play, expect Gabe Vincent to draw another spot start.
Grizzlies will start Jones, Bane, Brooks, Jackson Jr. and Adams on Friday. This is as expected.
Warriors will start Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, Green and Looney on Friday. Kevon Looney will move back into the starting lineup over Jonathan Kuminga. Otto Porter is also out so the Warriors are choosing to start big.
Otto Porter Jr. (foot) out Friday
Bucks will start Holiday, Allen, Matthews, Giannis and Lopez on Friday. This is as expected.
