Miami Starting point guard Mario Chalmers injured his right knee in the first quarter of Miami’s victory over Denver on Saturday night.
Chalmers, a former Kansas University standout, had to be helped to the locker room, unable to put any weight on his leg. The Heat said he would be re-evaluated today.
Chalmers has been Miami’s starter at the point for several weeks, and the Heat have gone 18-9 since he joined the starting lineup. He entered Saturday averaging 6.7 points and 2.4 assists for Miami.
Chalmers was not available for comment after the game. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Chalmers was in a brace in the locker room after the game, with an MRI exam scheduled for this morning.
