Miami Heat Facing Injuries With Point Guards

The Heat could find themselves short-handed at the point when training camp rolls around, as both Carlos Arroyo and Mario Chalmers are injured. From the Sun-Sentinel: “Carlos Arroyo, who finished last season as the team’s starting point guard, remains sidelined at the World Championships in Turkey due to a deep bruise in his left quadriceps. Mario Chalmers, the third-year guard expected to challenge for the starting role this season, is listed as ‘questionable’ by the Heat for the Sept. 28 start of training camp, after suffering a high ankle sprain during July workouts. The only other point guards on the roster are summer-league prospects Patrick Beverley and Kenny Hasbrouck, with each yet to appear in an NBA regular-season game, and veteran combo guard Eddie House, the free agent signed away from the New York Knicks who is considered more of a scorer than playmaker.”
