Miami announced P.J. Tucker suffered and left knee contusion after seeing 22 minutes of play in Game 2 vs. the Celtics. It’s unclear how many games Tucker will miss because of the injury, which means his status for Games 3 and 4 in Boston could be up in the air.
If he’s unable to play, Caleb Martin should see more playing time, but Tucker’s absence will surely be missed especially on the defensive side of the ball.
Meanwhile, veteran Kyle Lowry remains sidelined with a hamstring injury and has yet to make his conference finals debut for the top-seeded Heat. Gabe Vincent continues to see formidable minutes in Lowry’s absence as the series shifts to Boston tied at 1-1 apiece.
