Reporter reveals reason why Erik Spoelstra missed Heat game

Erik Spoelstra looks on

Erik Spoelstra did not coach in Saturday night’s Miami Heat game, and a reporter revealed the reason why.

Heat reporter Ira Winderman, who covers the team for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, said that Spoelstra was away from the team due to a medical procedure involving one of the coach’s two sons.

That explains it. Spoelstra also missed games when both of his sons were born.

Chris Quinn coached the team in Spoelstra’s place on Saturday night. They lost at home to Brooklyn 110-95.

The game marked Miami’s second since an infamous incident broke out between Spoelstra and Jimmy Butler during a loss to the Warriors.

Miami has lost four in a row and is 47-28.
