Miami Heat guard Victor Oladipo has declared himself fit to play tonight after battling a head cold.

Oladipo appears to have gotten over a head cold that kept him from traveling with the team to Indiana for last night's game against the Pacers. He's yet to feature for the Heat since they acquired him on March 25th from the Houston Rockets in exchange for Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk, and a 2022 draft pick swap.

Oladipo should be a shot in the arm for a Miami team that has largely been underwhelming this season. In 30 games with the Rockets and Pacers, he's averaged 20.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.7 assists per game. This will be the second game in consecutive nights for Miami, but it will also be their third game in four days. That could be the reason why the sharp money is siding with the visiting Warriors as a three-point underdog.
