Heat's Chalmers out with thumb injury
Chalmers was hurt Friday in Detroit and sat out the Heat's 95-84 loss at Milwaukee on Saturday, the first game he's missed in his two-year career. An MRI exam Sunday confirmed the injury.
Also, forward Michael Beasley will be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Bucks after further testing confirmed a hyperextended right knee.
The Heat have fallen into a tie for seventh place in the Eastern Conference.
