The Heat opened a commanding three games to one lead on the Pacers with a 102-90 win on Monday. Veteran Ray Allen, who scored nine points in 27 minutes in Game 4, is questionable for tonight's game with a hip injury. He has traveled with the team and should be in uniform.

Michael Wallace, who covers the NBA for, tweeted the following update on the Heat's injuries.
If Allen cannot play, expect Dwyane Wade, Mario Chalmers and backup Norris Cole to see the bulk of the minutes in the back court. Wade had 15 points in Game 4, while Chalmers added four and Cole chipped in with seven.

Allen is in his 18th NBA season out of Connecticut. He averaged 9.6 points in 26.5 minutes per game this season. In 13 post season games, Allen is averaging 9.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 24.8 minutes per game.
