Milwaukee, WI (Sporting Alert) The Miami Heat will be without Udonis Haslem, who will miss tonight’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks because of a neck contusion.
Haslem picked up the problem playing for the Heat (20-7) in the defeat to the Detriot Pistons on Friday night when he landed hard, following an acrobatic block on Kyle Singler.
The forward went on to play for 21-minutes, but it is now believed that he’s being bothered by the neck and has been listed as inactive for the contest.
Miami, playing without star guard Dwyane Wade on Friday night, were beaten 109-99 at Detroit, a game in which LeBron James scored a team-high 28 points, to go along with his six steals, six rebounds and five assists.
