Arroyo to miss Heat-Cavs game for family funeral

Heat point guard Carlos Arroyo will not be with the team

Wednesday night following the death of his grandfather in Puerto

Rico.

Mario Chalmers will start at point for Miami when it faces the

Cleveland Cavaliers. It’ll be Chalmers’ first start of the

season.

Arroyo is tentatively expected to return to the team Friday when

it visits the New York Knicks. He’s averaging 6.9 points and 2.2

assists, and leads Miami with a 51 percent accuracy rate from

3-point range.
