The move is in response to the NBA's COVID-19 surge in cases over the past few weeks, which has sparked the return of former stars such as Greg Monroe, Joe Johnson and Isaiah Thomas.

The Heat have eight players in COVID-19 protocol after adding two more players Thursday evening: Marcus Garrett and Duncan Robinson. Miami's list of unavailable players also includes guards Kyle Lowry and Gabe Vincent.

Chalmers, 35, played the bulk of his NBA career in Miami, from 2008-2015, appearing in 525 games for the Heat. He also played most of two seasons in Memphis (2015-16, 2017-18).

For his career, Chalmers has averaged 8.9 points and 3.7 assists per game. He was also a member of the 2008-09 All-Rookie second team.
