Allen, Andersen sit out Miami’s shoot around


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said guard Ray Allen and forward Chris Andersen missed Wednesday morning’s shootaround with injuries and will be game-time decisions in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Allen bruised his hip in the Game 4 win over Indiana that gave the Heat a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Andersen missed Game 4 with a bruised thigh.

Spoelstra does not have to reveal his starting lineup — or his inactive players — until shortly before Wednesday night’s game. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
