- Heat guard Dwyane Wade (knee) will start. The bone bruise on his right knee has given him trouble throughout the postseason but Wade was able to complete the morning shootaround. Coach Erik Spoelstra said Wade will play extensive minutes.
- The Bulls, who trail the series 3-1, will likely once again be without Kirk Hinrich and Luol Deng. Hinrich is listed as doubtful as he continues to recover from a severely bruised calf. Deng (illness) did not travel with the team. Neither has played in the series.
- Since scoring 27 points in Game 1, Bulls guard Nate Robinson has just 28 points in the following three games. Robinson is coming off an 0 for 12 shooting performance Monday in Chicago.
