Chris Andersen has been suspended for Game 6. Not altogether surprising. Joel Anthony will play.
Friday May 31, 2013 7:31 EthanJSkolnick
No surprise. Chris Andersen suspended for one game. Won't play Saturday at Indiana.

I did not Ralph but a good one RT @RaffaMiami: @TonyHEAT2xWC Coach did you ever get to use the Rocky Balboa comparison Sure fit in game 5.
Friday May 31, 2013 8:52 TonyHEAT2xWC
Possibly! RT @RaffaMiami: @TonyHEAT2xWC Coach can you see Rashard Lewis getting a some minutes in Game 6 now with Birdman out ?
Friday May 31, 2013 8:52 TonyHEAT2xWC
An updated story on the Birdman being unable to take flight for the Heat in Saturday's Game 6 in Indiana.
Friday May 31, 2013 8:58 IraHeatBeat
Hear what @KingJames - - and Coach Spo - had to say after today's practice in Miami.
Friday May 31, 2013 8:59 MiamiHEAT
For weeks before the Heat signed Birdman in January, Erik Spoelstra repeated insisted, "We have enough." Guess we'll see Saturday.
Friday May 31, 2013 9:04 IraHeatBeat
Thought of G7 not involved in suspensionRT @mlr0907: @TonyHEAT2xWC coach it looks like the NBA wants a Game 7, what do you think??
Friday May 31, 2013 9:28 TonyHEAT2xWC
He'll be in the mix.RT@Mandoman12: @TonyHEAT2xWC so I'm guessing Joel Anthony will come off the bench for Miami since Birdman is suspended.
Friday May 31, 2013 9:29 TonyHEAT2xWC
Joel is always ready. True professional! RT @ShameerRiaz: @TonyHEAT2xWC how bout significant minutes for Joel?
Friday May 31, 2013 9:31 TonyHEAT2xWC
Another option RT @rramirez33: @TonyHEAT2xWC @RommieDaHomie what about Rashard Lewis at the 4 or 5
Friday May 31, 2013 9:31 TonyHEAT2xWC
Player could face discipline w/too many flagrant fouls RT @ecjaxson: @TonyHEAT2xWC coach what's the purpose for upgrading fouls post game?
Friday May 31, 2013 9:33 TonyHEAT2xWC
Yes sir! Others need to step up. They did it all season. RT @DanquisD: @TonyHEAT2xWC coach can Heat win without Birdman?

@LloydHeilbrunn it was more about Stern righting a wrong
Friday May 31, 2013 10:09 EthanJSkolnick
For those who asked: Birdman cannot be replaced on active roster. There still must be two other inactive players, Heat can only dress 12.
Friday May 31, 2013 10:12 IraHeatBeat
@LloydHeilbrunn saying he should have been ejected
Friday May 31, 2013 10:13 EthanJSkolnick
That doesn't mean, of course, that Erik Spoelstra couldn't activate Juwan Howard or Jarvis Varando in place of, say, James Jones.

@Spoon_R13 there are really great pros at ESPN. Usually, though, those aren't the people they feature.
