Game Preview

The Miami Heat are eager to return to action after entering the All-Star break on a run of six wins in eight games.

Miami will restart with a road game against the surging New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night.

Jimmy Butler, Miami’s leading scorer, will be back following a three-game absence prompted by a death in his family. Point guard Delon Wright will make his Heat debut after signing last weekend, days after he reached a contract buyout agreement with the Washington Wizards.
