The Miami Heat are down another big name.
Point guard Kyle Lowry entered the health and safety protocols on Saturday, the team announced.
#MIAvsORL INJURY UPDATE: Caleb Martin (health and safety protocols) is available for tomorrow's game vs the Magic.
Jimmy Butler (tailbone) and P.J. Tucker (leg) are listed as questionable.
Markeiff Morris (neck) and Kyle Lowry (health and safety protocols) have been ruled out.

The Heat are already down Jimmy Butler (tailbone), Bam Adebayo (thumb surgery) and Victor Oladipo (quadriceps), so it's safe to say this season isn't going according to plan.
Lowry is currently averaging 13.9 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.5 rebounds per game. Like other players in the protocols, his return will depend on how quickly he can post a negative test.
