The Miami Heat for the second straight game will play without three starters.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said after the morning shootaround that LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers will not play Tuesday against the New York Knicks because of injuries. None of the injuries appear serious, with Wade and Chalmers nursing ankle sprains while James is out with "hamstring tightness."

James and Wade have missed the past two games. Chalmers will be out a third straight game. The Heat will start the same lineup they used in Sunday's win against the San Antonio Spurs, consisting of Chris Bosh, Rashard Lewis, Udonis Haslem, Norris Cole and Mike Miller.
