The Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at STAPLES Center.

ABOUT THE HEAT (11-26): Second-year forward Justise Winslow underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder Thursday. It was a frustrating campaign for Winslow, who earlier missed time with a wrist injury and played in just 18 games while averaging 10.9 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists. “To say I’m disappointed is an understatement,” Winslow said on his Twitter feed. “It hurts that I can’t be there for my teammates, the coaching staff and our fans. After a lot of thought, this surgery is what is best for my career.”

ABOUT THE LAKERS (13-26):
Rookie forward Brandon Ingram was in the starting lineup against Portland with Luol Deng (biceps) sitting out and the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 draft scored 11 points in 37 minutes. The 19-year-old Ingram, who made his 11th start of the campaign, had scored in single digits in 13 of his previous 14 games as he tries to adjust to the pro game after one season at Duke. Power forward Julius Randle contributed 17 points and nine rebounds against Portland but was just 4-of-13 from the field in his follow-up to a superb game against Memphis on Tuesday when he had 19 points, 14 rebounds and a career-high 11 assists.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Lakers listed as 2.5-point favorites versus the Heat, while the game’s total is sitting at 213 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

The Miami Heat have been dealing with all types of injury issues but are feeling a bit better after ending a six-game losing streak. Miami will look to record consecutive wins for the first time since Dec. 12-14 when it visits the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday.

The Heat halted their skid by notching a 107-102 road win over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday in the second contest of a six-game road trip. Standout center Hassan Whiteside (eye) will miss his fourth consecutive game but could possibly return for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Lakers are experiencing their own struggles and Thursday’s 118-109 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers was their 16th defeat in the past 19 games. Point guard D’Angelo Russell scored 22 points against Portland but was just 6-of-18 shooting and missed all eight of his 3-point attempts.

The Lakers were a 118-109 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Trail Blazers. They failed to cover the +6.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (227) made winners of OVER bettors.

Miami was a 107-102 winner in its last match on the road against the Kings. They covered the +8-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 209 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
