Injury update: Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert got injured during the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Because he is as hard as a diamond, he came back and played parts of the second half, including the fourth quarter, injured. His left ankle isn't feeling any better after a night off, and will not be active tonight against the Miami Heat. I don't know who will replace him in the starting lineup, but I would go with Jeff Withey over Tibor Pleiss or Trevor Booker. Booker is an energy guy off the bench, and let's not change his role. Pleiss is a rookie who isn't quite ready yet.

Tonight our bigs, like Derrick Favors, will have a good match-up. As the Miami Heat bring Chris Bosh, Josh McRoberts, Jarnell Stokes, Udonis Haslem, Hassan Whiteside, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Chris Andersen to the table. On a night where we wouldn't want to go small, we just may have to!
