|Ellington (personal) became a father Wednesday and missed the Heat's morning shootaround Thursday but will play against the Raptors.

|3/23/2017||T.J. Warren, Pho, SF|
|Warren will miss a second straight game Friday due to a left foot contusion.
Analysis: It's unclear when he suffered the injury. Warren had played in 45 straight games before missing Thursday's loss at Brooklyn, and with the short turnaround, it's no surprise the Suns are keeping the young forward out of action again.

|3/23/2017||Aaron Gordon, Orl, F|
|Gordon will play in Friday's contest against Detroit after being listed as questionable with a sore left hip.

|3/23/2017||Ty Lawson, Sac, PG|
|Lawson has denied that he violated his probation in a Colorado drunken driving case by drinking and failing to complete community service. Lawson and his attorney Harvey Steinberg made the assertion Thursday during an appearance in a Denver courtroom. Steinberg said Lawson wanted his vehicle equipped with an interlock device that would test him for alcohol consumption so he could prove he's not drinking. The judge agreed and plans to hold another hearing in May.
Analysis: Probation officials allege Lawson tested positive for alcohol three times in the past six months. He was arrested twice on drunken driving charges in 2015, first in Denver and then in Los Angeles.
