New York Knicks (13-4) at Miami Heat (12-4), 8 p.m. (ET)--Miami Herald
With starting forward Shane Battier still out with a sprained right knee, the Heat got all of a sudden very thin at point guard. Mario Chalmers tore a tendon in his finger against the Wizards and could be out close to a week. Backup guard Norris Cole sat in Washington with a sore groin.

There would be many game-time decisions, he said. Mario Chalmers’ finger is in a splint. Shane Battier’s right knee made it through the shootaround, as did Norris Cole with his sore groin. But things can change quickly. Udonis Haslem has a hip pointer; he only lasted 10 minutes in the morning workout.

“It’s called the NBA, baby,” Dwyane Wade said of his battered squad. “Everyone’s banged up.”

Chalmers and Cole both played, but were limited by their injuries in Thursday’s 112-92 blowout loss at home.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said before the game all 15 players are available, including guards Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole and forward Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem. All were labled as game-time decisions after the morning shootaround, but Chalmers and Haslem will start after overcoming recent injuries.

Despite ailments limiting the Heat's Udonis Haslem, Mario Chalmers, Norris Cole and Shane Battier, all four were in uniform and in the rotation.

Five more games that you have to watch:
Sat. 9:00 pm: Valparaiso at No. 18 New Mexico: Valpo reminds me a bit of Davidson. They have a couple of talented, versatile big men in Ryan Broekhoff and Kevin Van Wjik and a slew of experience up and down their roster. Davidson gave the Lobos all kinds of trouble at the Pit earlier this season. I think Valpo will keep things interesting as well.
