Game Preview

As the Miami Heat and host Los Angeles Lakers work toward better health for the new year, they will get a chance to compare notes when the teams meet on Wednesday.

The Heat absorbed a 121-104 defeat on the road against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday without Jimmy Butler (foot), Caleb Martin (ankle), Josh Richardson (back) and Haywood Highsmith (concussion protocol).

Butler and Highsmith will be out again on Wednesday. Martin is doubtful, and Richardson is questionable.
