Description: Heat rookie Shabazz Napier came off the bench to lead Miami in scoring with 18 points versus the Knicks on Friday.
Insight: Napier was 6-of-11 from the floor, including 4-for-5 from downtown. He also had seven rebounds and six assists. Napier obviously benefitted from no Norris Cole or Chris Bosh, but it will be interesting to see how much Napier plays when Goran Dragic arrives.

Description: Heat rookie Shabazz Napier will start on Friday versus the Mavericks.
Insight: Napier has two starts this season and is averaging 11.0 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 5.5 apg, 1.0 3-pointers and 1.5 spg in those two games. Napier is an intriguing player in deeper leagues, but in standard leagues, owners can wait to see how he plays Friday.

Description: Heat rookie Shabazz Napier has scored double-digit points in five consecutive games.
Insight: It's not a coincidence that Dwyane Wade has not been playing in any of them. With Wade expected to miss Tuesday as well, Naier is a viable fantasy option.

Description: It could be a few years until rookie Shabazz Napier is a fantasy force.
Insight: The kid from UConn has tremendous potential. His college stat line besides his field goal percentage was incredible, but Napier is small, 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, and it could take him a few seasons to make a big enough impact to be fantasy relevant.

Description: Miami is hoping to select Connecticut guard Shabazz Napier in Thursday night's NBA Draft. SOURCE: Chad Ford, ESPN
Insight: The Heat would likely have to move up in the draft to make that happen. LeBron James has said he's a fan of Napier so landing him in the draft would obviously improve the team's chances of keeping the four-time MVP.
