Heat heading to Houston Wednesday night to avoid Hurricane Matthew

WASHINGTON — The Miami Heat flew home after Tuesday night’s 106-95 preseason victory over the Washington Wizards to allow players to prepare their families and homes for the potential arrival of Hurricane Matthew.

But the team won’t be staying home very long.

The Heat will be getting back on a plane Wednesday evening to get out of South Florida and continue their preseason workouts at the team facility of the Houston Rockets, a team spokesman said.

The Rockets left for China on Tuesday night where they will play a pair of preseason games against the New Orleans Pelicans. The first game is on Sunday in Shainghai and the second on Oct. 12 in Beijing.

Miami plays it’s next exhibition game Saturday in Kansas City against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

With Matthew bearing down on Miami, the Heat spent the day Tuesday looking for a location near Kansas City available to practice for a couple days.
