Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said guard Kyle Lowry and forward P.J. Tucker will go through their routines with the intent to play Game 3 on Saturday night in Boston.

Lowry, 36, has missed the first two games of the series and eight of the last 10 games with a left hamstring injury.

A six-time All-Star, Lowry is averaging 6.2 points, 5.2 assists and 3.6 rebounds through five playoff starts.

Tucker, 37, sustained a left knee contusion during the third quarter of Miami's 127-102 loss Thursday in Game 2.

Tucker is averaging 8.2 points and 5.5 rebounds in 13 playoff starts this postseason. He is shooting 53.1 percent from the field and 48.6 percent from 3-point range.
