Two days after leaving Game 1 of the Miami Heat's series against the Brooklyn Nets with a right knee contusion, forward Chris "Birdman" Andersen intends to play in Game 2. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Andersen will warm up "with the intention of playing."

Though Birdman missed most of Game 1's fourth quarter, he told the Sun Sentinel Wednesday, "You're going to need a body bag to keep me from playing."

Roundtable: Best coach on the market?

In the playoffs, Andersen is averaging 8.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game, on 65% shooting. Since signing with the Heat midway through last season, Andersen has emerged as a reliable rim-protecting presence off the bench for the Heat.
