The Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat meet Monday night at Amway Center, and both teams will be without key players. As John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports, Miami won't have All-Star shooting guard Dwyane Wade, who is suffering from a bruise in his right knee. Wade also missed the Heat's win on Sunday.

On the Orlando side, center Nikola Vucevic will miss his third straight game due to a concussion, according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Kyle O'Quinn will start in his place.

Monday's game is also Orlando's first without Arron Afflalo, as the starting swingman suffered a season-ending hamstring injury in Friday's loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. E'Twaun Moore will assume Afflalo's spot in the starting five, says Robbins.
