Waiters said this ankle sprain is worse than his last one and he did break this ankle back in high school. The win also ensured that Miami would end the evening among the top eight in the Eastern Conference.

The news was not all good for Miami however as Dion Waiters exited early with an ankle injury. He will not return to tonight's game. Two other members of the Heat's backcourt - Tyler Johnson and Goran Dragic - increased their offensive production to fill in the void.

He entered play on Friday as the team's third-leading scorer with 16.1 points per game, as well as being second on the team with 4.4 assists per night. Andrew Wiggins scored 25 points and Ricky Rubio added 20 for Minnesota. Johnson had 15 points in the third quarter alone, his most productive quarter of the season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves game tonight against to the Miami Heat Live Streaming is available on FOX Sport NORTH, NBATV. All throughout this impressive turnaround of a season, Dragic has served as the catalyst for Miami's dynamic offense. The Karl-Anthony Towns posted a double-double of 17 points and 14 rebounds.

The Wizards improved to 42-26 on the season but not before letting let most of a 19-point halftime lead slip away because of some sloppy defence.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have won six matches out of last ten with the one-game losing streak against Celtics.

Damian Lillard led six players in double figures with 27 points as Portland pulled within 1 1/2 games of the eighth and final playoff spot in the West.

Despite the Waiters injury, this game gave Heat fans another exciting, fun night of basketball. And now, this journey looks like it may not be done anytime soon.
