The Miami Heat are set to take on the Orlando Magic in the NBA preseason on Tuesday night.

The game at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami is slated to start at 7:30 p.m. EDT.

The game will be broadcast on SunSports and FOX Sports Florida.

Live streaming will be available through the NBA League Pass.

Radio coverage will be available through 104.3 The Ticket and ESPN 580.

The probable starters for Miami will likely be Mario Chalmers and Dwayne Wade in the backcourt, joined by Luol Deng, Udonis Haslem, and Chris Bosh.

Josh McRoberts, who is expected to start at power forward during the season, is injured and won’t be playing. Backup big man Chris Andersen is questionable while another backup big man, Justin Hamilton, won’t play.

The starting lineup for Orlando will likely be Elfrid Payton and Evan Fournier in the backcourt, joined by Maurice Harkless, Aaron Gordon, and Nikola Vicevic.

Veterans Victor Oladipo and Channing Frye, who are projected to start in the regular season in place of rookies Payton and Gordon, are currently injured.

Gordon told NBA.com that he’s looking forward to playing against legends like Wade and Bosh.

“I’m not going to be in awe of them. I feel like I’ve earned the right to play on the floor and be playing this sport at the highest level,” Gordon said prior to the Magic’s practice on Monday. “So just like they have, I’m going to come out here and play my hardest.”

He did admit to being nervous. 

“Definitely butterflies because it is the first preseason game on my new team. It’s another step on the process and it’s a long journey,” he said. “All of this is benefiting myself and my team on what we want to accomplish. But at the same time, we do want to come out play with intensity and win.”
