MIAMI -- Heat forward Udonis Haslem was not with the team for Wednesday night's game against the Toronto Raptors because of a family emergency.

Haslem, who is averaging 11.9 points and 9.1 rebounds, is expected to rejoin the team in time for Friday's home game with the Golden State Warriors.

Haslem's absence left Miami with nine available players against the Raptors.
