Ailing Heat visit struggling Pistons

The Miami Heat's surprising surge into playoff contention is being slowed by backcourt injuries.

Miami lost three of its past four games with shooting guard Dion Waiters sidelined by a left ankle sprain. He will miss his fifth consecutive game when the Heat travel to Michigan to face the reeling Detroit Pistons on Tuesday in a pivotal matchup.

Starting point guard Goran Dragic believes Waiters' absence has contributed to the current skid. Waiters averages 15.8 points and 4.3 assists per game.
