Pre-Season Game #2: @Miami

Tonight's exhibition game may not offer much insight as the Hawks may not face NBA opposition.

Dwyane Wade's out, of course, and Michael Cunningham of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel describes Pat Riley as "noncommittal" regarding the likelihood of Shaquille O'Neal, Udonis Haslem, Alonzo Mourning, Antoine Walker, and/or Penny Hardaway playing tonight. Smush Parker is recovering from a right ankle injury and missed a day of practice last week for failing to meet the team's conditioning standards.

None of those guys played Monday night against the Pistons, reducing the Heat to Jason Williams and a bunch of end-of-the-rotation (or would be end-of-the-rotation) guys. Dorell Wright was the only Miami player to play more than 25 minutes. Marcus Slaughter and Brian Chase were the only Miami players to score more than 9 points.

Ballhype: hype it up!
