The latest episode of the Miami Herald’s Heat Check podcast includes a look back and a look ahead.

The Miami Herald’s Anthony Chiang and David Wilson ran through their takeaways from Tuesday’s big Heat road win over the Cleveland Cavaliers and then previewed Thursday night’s announcement of this season’s All-Star reserves.

What was most impressive from the Heat’s victory in Cleveland and what remains concerning?

As for the impending All-Star announcement, will the Heat be represented by Bam Adebayo and/or Jimmy Butler in this month’s NBA showcase game? Should both be selected as All-Stars despite Miami’s place in the standings?

Chiang and Wilson also discussed the breaking news regarding two-way contract center Orlando Robinson’s fractured right thumb. How will the Heat handle the backup center spot in the rotation with Robinson expected to miss time?

Oh, and the NBA trade deadline is just one week away. What will the Heat do?

All of this and more is covered in this week’s episode of the podcast.
