The 2001-02 Miami Heat season is the 14th season of the Miami Heat in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Heat finished sixth in the Atlantic Division with a 36-46 record, missing the playoffs for the first time since the 1994-95 season. This season was All-Star center Alonzo Mourning's last season in a Heat uniform as a kidney condition kept him out of the following season, though he would return to the Heat midway in the 2004-05 NBA season. The season also marks the first time that Pat Riley did not make the playoffs for the first time in his coaching career.
