The Heat originally called Reed's injury a calf strain, and tests performed Sunday showed the bursitis.

Reed is being listed as day-to-day. He's averaging 5.3 points on 57 percent shooting this season.

His injury means the Heat will have 11 players available Monday, with four forwards or centers all out. Chris Bosh has not played this season, Justise Winslow (shoulder) is expected to miss the rest of the season and Josh McRoberts (foot) remains sidelined.
