Report: Heat G Ray Allen and PF Chris Andersen questionable for Game 5 vs. Pacers
Heat guard Ray Allen and power forward Chris Andersen are questionable for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, according to Mike Wallace of ESPN.com.
Andersen was inactive for Miami's Game 4 win at home because of a bruised left thigh. Allen played in the win, but suffered a hip injury while fighting through a screen in the second half. The veteran sharpshooter finished with 9 points on 2-8 shooting -- including 1-5 from three -- in 27 minutes. The pair had been receiving "extensive treatment" on Tuesday to rehab their respective injuries, according to Wallace.
Andersen's status is in more doubt that Allen's, as head coach Erik Spoelstra said he would meet with the team's medical staff to determine whether Andersen should board the flight Tuesday or stay in Miami to continue receiving treatment, according to the report.
The Heat lead the Pacers 3-1 in the Eastern Conference finals as Miami looks to close out Indiana on the road Wednesday night.
