Everyone knows that in order for your team to do their best, they have to be in good health. Whether that's physical or mental, that state your players are in will have an effect on the outcome of the game, and Miami Heat's player injuries & illnesses have people concerned about their game tomorrow.

The Heat is set to face off against The Houston Rockets tomorrow at 8 p.m., but quite a few players are suffering from injury or illness, making their potential quality of play — or even their ability to play at all — questionable at best. 

Of the full roster, 6 names are listed as ill or injured — a couple of them suffering injuries that have them down n' out & will not be active in the game, including Okpala with an Achilles injury & Jones, Jr. with a hip injury.

While Jones Jr. & Okpala will be out, Haslem doesn't think his illness will affect his play & will be on the court in tomorrow's match. Butler & Johnson both are ill but will have their statuses determined later.

While Jimmy Butler hasn't been deemed out, a few fans hope that he'll be well enough to hit the hoops — saying they NEED him for tomorrow's big game.

Apparently he gets sick a lot & needs a boost to his immune system too.

Winslow suffered from a concussion, yet returned to practice & they believe it's probable he will lace up for tomorrow's game. This fact especially has fans on Twitter concerned.

One commenter is straight-up confused as to why they'd let Winslow on the court, while also suggesting that someone has unleashed biological warfare to sabotage the team.

While others are happy he's off the court, but not so much about his Heat brother Jimmy.

What has players so sick? A lot of commenters want to know, some even suggested that it's all them dank edibles they've been eating in Miami.

Whatever happens, players will need to be on their A-game if they want to win. In the words of one commenter, QUARANTINE THE HEAT; protect the rest of those players.

Whether the illnesses will affect the heat is yet to be seen. You can tune in to their match against the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center tomorrow to find out. To see The Heat's full schedule, check here.
