Heat guard Tyler Johnson taken off court in wheelchair after knee injury

Heat guard Tyler Johnson taken off court in wheelchair after knee injury

The short-handed Heat, down by double figures for most of the first half, closed to within five on multiple occasions in the final four minutes but ultimately succumbed 119-111 at United Center.

"It goes however it goes. You have to credit them". Nikola Mirotic is averaging 17.4 points and seven rebounds while Lauri Markkanen is averaging 15.4 points and 7.6 rebounds. The Bulls have topped 100+ points only twice in those last eight meetings, while the Heat have done so six out of eight times.

The Heat extended their winning streak to seven games with a 97-79 victory over the Bucks on Sunday. It is the first time Chicago has won back-to-back games by three points or fewer since March 29-31, 2016.

Following the game, Josh Richardson, who finished the game with 11 points, six assists, five rebounds, two steals, and two blocks, reflected on the defeat.

"It feels like we're playing at home, so it was a good atmosphere for us", Kristaps Porzingis said.

The game was not the only loss for the Heat on Monday. It was a scary scene as team doctors inspected the shooting guard's lower left leg, seeming to pay close attention to his knee.

The Heat are already down guard Dion Waiters, who had season-ending ankle surgery. Johnson was on the court, near one of the baskets, for a couple of minutes before being carted off.

The Heat later announced Johnson is only dealing with a sprained ankle, with X-rays coming back negative.

"The first part of the news is he's relieved". "Right now he just has it wrapped in tape so that's a good sign as well". He is in the midst of his fourth season with the Heat, having appeared in more than 50 games in a single year just once. Offensively, the Heat seemed out of synch for much of the second half.

After defeating Miami, the Bulls will face the Golden State Warriors at home this Wednesday.
