Dwyane Wade will not play tonight, Beasley will be in uniform.— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) December 23, 2013
Wade missed the previous matchup with the Hawks with James Jones getting the start on that night. Miami will also have Michael Beasley in uniform for the first time in several weeks due to a hamstring injury.
The development does set up an intriguing matchup at the shooting guard position where two of the league's premier shooters will be matched against each other in Allen and Atlanta's Kyle Korver.
The Hawks will be without Cartier Martin due to an ankle injury. Gustavo Ayon was listed as questionable but will dress and be available according to the AJC's Chris Vivlamore.
