Miami Heat guard Gabe Vincent is expected to play Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals after sitting out Thursday's 110-97 loss to the Boston Celtics with a left ankle injury, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Vincent turned his left ankle in the fourth quarter of Miami's Game 4 loss to Boston. He briefly returned to that game before resting the final 3:40 of a blowout. He was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.

The 26-year-old Vincent wanted to play in Game 5, but the Heat took precautionary measures with a 3-1 lead in the series, sources said.
