The Miami Heat are hosting the Boston Celtics for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday night in Florida, and for the game they have announced their injury report (per Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald). 

Chiang's tweet: "The Heat is listing Herro (left groin strain), Kyle Lowry (left hamstring strain), Max Strus (right hamstring strain), P.J. Tucker (left knee irritation) and Gabe Vincent (left hamstring strain) as questionable for Game 5. Jimmy Butler is not on the injury report."
