MIAMI – The Miami Heat will open play after the All-Star break shorthanded.

The team announced Wednesday that Bam Adebayo and Avery Bradley will both be out for the team’s game against the Orlando Magic.

Adebayo is dealing with a sore knee that kept him out of the team’s 103-93 win at New Orleans.

Bradley has a calf issue.

The Heat have an 18-18 record at the All-Star break.

The defending Eastern Conference Champions are currently 6th in the Eastern Conference standings.
