The Miami Heat defeated the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday by the score of 94-93. The win improved the Heat to 8-6 on the season, second in the Southeast Division. Luol Deng lead the Heat with 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting. On the injury front, veteran backup power forward Chris Andersen sprained his ankle after just two minutes of action and did not return.

According to the official Twitter account of the Miami Heat,  
Should Andersen miss any additional playing time, expect Josh McRoberts and Udonis Haslem to see the majority of time at backup power forward. 

Andersen, in his 13th NBA season, is averaging 2.2 points and 2.9 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game this season. He has played for the Nuggets, Pelicans and Heat and has career averages of 5.5 points and 5.1 rebounds in 605 games.
