Brendan Haywood Probable for Game 3

Brendan Haywood’s right hip flexor should be good to go for Game 3 on Sunday, according to a Mavericks official: “Dallas Mavericks center Brendan Haywood should be available for practice today and Game 3 on Sunday, a Mavericks official said. Haywood left with a strained right hip flexor early in the fourth quarter of Game 2, but returned to the bench later. He injured himself during a play in which he fouled Heat forward Udonis Haslem with 11:13 left. Haywood, who is listed day-to-day, finished with two points and no rebounds in eight minutes. In Game 1, Haywood provided a physical presence inside as Tyson Chandler was in early foul trouble and struggled. He had three points and seven rebounds in 14 minutes.”
