Lynn is set to return from shoulder surgery and a late hamstring twinge into a line-up which may also feature the return of Joe Burns, who has battled a groin strain but is considered less likely to play than Lynn.
Lynn’s career has been threatened by a series of injuries to his left shoulder. Several have occurred during training as he finds it difficult to go at anything less than full throttle.
But the Heat will try and place him in fielding positions where the risk of an accident diving or throwing is minimised and have reminded Lynn of the need to occasionally throttle down.
“It is probably down to Chris to manage himself,’’ Heat coach Dan Vettori said.
“The times he has got in trouble in the past he has been so committed that he has gone too hard. He may have to pull back a bit and realise he cannot go at that top end speed.
“It is on him to manage it as much as possible. We just have to keep reminding him of it.
“We don’t want him sprinting around at deep square like he did in the past. It’s going to be one of those things where he has to really manage it and find some spots which are not too high in intensity.”
Lynn, who throws left-handed, has worked with baseball coaches during his time out to improve his right-handed throwing.
