The Heat will be without Chris Bosh Tuesday night in Brooklyn, and Dwyane Wade might also be in street clothes.
Per the Sun-Sentinel:
Coach Erik Spoelstra said Josh McRoberts is out indefinitely after an MRI revealed a lateral meniscus tear on his right knee. He will undergo surgery later this week.
“This will not be a short-term thing,” Spoelstra said. “He’ll be out a while, if he even does make it back this season.”
Center Chris Bosh will not travel with the team due to a calf strain that caused him to miss Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bulls. Also, guard Dwyane Wade is questionable because of a stomach virus. He did not practice Monday.
