Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers listed as questionable for Game 3 against Charlotte Bobcats

After being the only player on the Miami Heat roster to miss practice on Tuesday, point guard Mario Chalmers has officially been listed as a game-time decision for Wednesday’s Game 3 against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald garnered this quote from head coach Erik Spoelstra on the status of Chalmers’ injury:

“He still has that bruise on his knee and we’ll see how he feels tomorrow,” coach Erik Spoelstra said of Chalmers. “He did make progress from [Monday].”

In Game 1, the 27-year-old Chalmers had a perfectly fine game with 7 points on 3-for-7 shooting, but in all actuality, the Heat should be able to dispose of the Bobcats in short order, regardless of his availability. However, Chalmers is certainly a necessary part for Miami’s grand goal of completing a 3-peat this season, and if there are any lingering effects, Erik Spoelstra and company would likely be wise to sit him.
If Chalmers can’t play, look for Miami to deploy a rotation of Norris Cole and Toney Douglas, with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade picking up considerable slack in ball-handling.
