Heat center Chris Andersen missed the team's morning shootaround on Friday and will be a game-time decision against the Pacers Friday night, according to a tweet from reporter Scott Agness.

Miami currently leads Indiana 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals. The 35-year-old big man missed the last two games because of a bruised left thigh suffered earlier in the series and did not travel with the team to Indiana for Game 5 on Wednesday, opting to remain in Miami and continue receiving treatment.

If he misses another game, head coach Erik Spoelstra will likely stick with Rashard Lewis at the four spot and keep Udonis Haslem as a reserve. In Game 5, Lewis hit a season-high six three pointers to help Miami win a close one 93-90.
