San Antonio Spurs
With each game that passes by without the return of Kawhi Leonard, Spurs fans get a little more uneasy.
San Antonio is winning but, deep down, everybody knows that the Spurs need Leonard if they are going to compete for anything more than a playoff spot out West.
He will miss his fourth consecutive game to start the season Wednesday as he continues to recover from his right quadriceps tendinopothy.
The fact that the Spurs are still good and that there isn’t any doubt they would still make the playoffs in a loaded Western Conference without Leonard is exactly the sort of thing that makes them the Spurs and Gregg Popovich the greatest coach going in American sports.
Golden State is loaded, but if Leonard comes back at full strength, the Spurs will give them a run.
They beat the Raptors on Monday with LaMarcus Aldridge’s 20 and 16 from Dejounte Murray. They are one of only four undefeated teams left in the NBA.
Miami had gotten on well this season too despite some injury concerns of its own. Hassan Whiteside will miss his third game in a row since getting hurt in the opener. He should be coming back any game now. Dion Waiter will play with a bum ankle that is a concerning injury to start the season with.
He’s in a lot of pain for a player as young as he, but he continues to tough it out.
Without Whiteside, the Heat go really small. Kelly Olynyk is as big as it gets and he is a 7-footer who plays like he’s 6’2″. Jordan Mickey is the starting big guy and go-to rebounder and shot-blocker.
It’s all about Miami’s guard. Goran Dragic is also banged up but he should be in the lineup. He with Waiters, and Tyler Johnson and Josh Richardson can create a lot off the dribble and open up catch-and-shoot spots for Olynyk and Wayne Ellington.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction: the Heat pull the upset at home.
On Monday when I picked the Spurs I expected a max effort game and we got it. I’m not so sure about this roadie.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Miami +3.5
I say the Spurs struggle to stay in front of the small Miami guards and the Heat shoot them out of town.
