Can Bobcats beat Heat's 'JV' squad?

UPDATE: Mario Chalmers was able to take part in Friday's shootaround, and his status for tonight's game has been upgraded to a game-time call. If his ankle feels strong enough to play, he should be a solid fantasy option.


As expected, the Miami Heat will face the Charlotte Bobcats tonight on ESPN at 8:00 pm ET without the services of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Mario Chalmers and Ray Allen, per the team's official Twitter feed. The absence of four of the Heat's top players should make the game far more interesting than we've seen in previous battles between the two clubs.
