Can the Miami Heat remain healthy?

This is probably the question that is a concern for most teams. However, even more so for a Heat team that relies so much on two players that have already missed 19 and 13 games respectively, in Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry.

The Heat is deep enough to overcome stretches of missed games from both of those players so far this season – and that should tell us something about this team’s depth – but I can’t imagine Miami being able to overcome the loss of one of them in a playoff series.

Especially with how well the rest of the Eastern Conference has played so far this season. The Heat’s durability will be tested over the course of the last couple of months of the season and depending on how they pass that test, it could very well determine their chances for a deep playoff run.
