Heat forward Derrick Jones Jr. bruised his shoulder after a scary fall in a preseason game against the Hornets on Tuesday.
The injury occurred when Jones landed awkwardly after attempting to put back a missed shot with 6:01 left in the second quarter.
It’s hard to watch these types of falls in the NBA. But the good news is that the X-rays came back negative.
