Miami Heat guard Kyle Lowry (left knee pain) and forward Caleb Martin (left ankle sprain) were downgraded to Out for Tuesday night’s home game against the Chicago Bulls.

Other players listed on Miami’s injury report are Udonis Haslem (achilles), Jimmy Butler (knee), Dewayne Dedmon (foot), Gabe Vincent (knee) and Omer Yurtseven (ankle).

While Yurtseven is out indefinitely, Haslem is a question, Vincent is out and both Butler and Dedmon are likely. According to a number of NBA betting sites, the Heat has the 14th best chance of winning the championship in 2023.

UPDATE: Kyle Lowry and Caleb Martin have both been ruled out.

Including Monday’s matchup, Lowry has missed four games this season. This will be his third missed game in a row. The six-time All-Star came out on top of Miami’s 111-108 win over the Houston Rockets (December 15) and 111-101 win over the San Antonio Spurs (December 17).

In 28 starts, the 17-year veteran is averaging 14 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.1 steals per game. To add to those stats, he shoots 40.1% from the field and 35.3% from the arc.

Also, this will be Caleb Martin’s third missed game this season. He was inactive during Saturday’s game against Spurs. In 29 starts, the fourth-year wing is averaging career highs of 11.1 points, 4.7 boards, 1.9 assists, and 1.1 steals per game. He also shoots 46.8% from the ground and 39.6% from 3-point range.

“We want to move forward from here. After a successful season, this shows how difficult it is to win,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra after the game in Mexico City. “Nothing is guaranteed in this league, there is a lot of equality, we know the path to success and we have to do the things that most teams don’t do.”

Miami begins its four-game homestand against the Bulls. Of course, the only two players Chicago included in its injury report are Lonzo Ball (knee) and Javonte Green (knee). Ball is not expected to play until the early months of 2023 and Green’s status is in question.

Chicago is on a four-game sled. The team has lost seven of their last ten games. However, the Heat are playing well at the moment. They are 6-4 in their last 10 competitions and the team is on a four-game winning streak.

As another side note, the Bulls are 2-8 in their last 10 matchups against Miami. Several sportsbooks show the Heat as four-point favorites at home. So far this season they are 9-6 at home and 16-15 overall.
