Luol Deng, F4/7/2015 6:36:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is expected to play on Tuesday versus the Hornets according to The Palm Beach Post.
Insight: Deng is going to try and give it a go, but check back to make sure because he isn't a sure thing.
Luol Deng, F4/5/2015 10:08:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng will have an MRI on his left knee Monday according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: The South Florida Sun Sentinel is speculating that Deng's season could be over. Deng hasn't been 100 percent for awhile, and as Miami slips out of the playoff picture, they might not want to rush Deng back onto the floor. Check back for updates on Monday.

Udonis Haslem, F4/4/2015 12:28:00 PM
Description: Heat power forward Udonis Haslem (illness) is expected to return to the court Saturday against Detroit.
Insight: Haslem doesn't have much fantasy value as long as Hassan Whiteside is playing ... which he is.
Dwyane Wade, G4/3/2015 1:25:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade left Thursday's game against the Cavaliers after slipping in the first half and coming up with a sore left knee. Consider him doubtful for Saturday's game against Detroit.

Luol Deng, F4/2/2015 11:04:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng tied Hassan Whiteside for the team-high 17 points versus the Cavaliers on Thursday.

Hassan Whiteside, C4/2/2015 11:01:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside didn't get any blocks, but it is hard to be upset with his production on Thursday versus the Cavaliers.
Insight: Whiteside finished with 17 points, shooting 8-of-11 from the field. He also had eight rebounds, one assist and one steal. Owners should have already, but it is officially safe to put Whiteside back in the lineup.
Dwyane Wade, G4/2/2015 9:51:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade left Thursday's game against the Cavaliers after slipping in the first half according to Roto World. UPDATE: Wade will not return.
Insight: Wade did a bit of a split and had to go to the locker room, though, he left under his own power. Miami should have an update soon.

Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside will start on Thursday versus the Cavaliers according to the South Florida Sentinel Sun.
Insight: It was reported earlier that Whiteside would come off the bench, but things have apparently changed. Whiteside should be in all lineups.
Dwyane Wade, G4/2/2015 7:25:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade said he will play on Thursday versus the Cavaliers according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Surely, Wade is motivated to play against his former teammate and friend LeBron James. Wade is averaging 31.5 ppg versus the Cavaliers this season, so he is a must-start.
Udonis Haslem, F4/2/2015 7:06:00 PM
Description: Heat power forward Udonis Haslem is out on Thursday versus the Cavaliers according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Haslem is sick, so hopefully he can play this weekend. Miami has a game on Saturday and Sunday.
Luol Deng, F4/2/2015 7:05:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng will play on Thursday versus the Cavaliers according to The Palm Beach Post.

Udonis Haslem, F4/2/2015 6:58:00 PM
Description: Heat power forward Udonis Haslem will be a game-time decision on Thursday against the Cavaliers due to an illness according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Head coach Erik Spoelstra has not indicated which way he will go with Haslem on Thursday. If he can't go, Chris Andersen and Hassan Whiteside will see a bump in fantasy value.
Hassan Whiteside, C4/2/2015 6:52:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside will come off the bench on Thursday versus the Cavaliers according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Whiteside did also say that his conditioning has gotten to a point that he can play more than 23 minutes, which is what he played on Tuesday, but Chris Andersen is still going to start. Andersen is worth a look in daily leagues.
Dwyane Wade, G4/2/2015 12:03:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade is questionable after missing the Thursday morning shootaround.
Insight: It's not his knees this time, its illness. He'll likely be a game-time decision. He is averaging 21.7 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 5.0 apg this season, his highest point total since 2011.
Udonis Haslem, F4/2/2015 12:01:00 PM
Description: Heat power forward Udonis Haslem missed the morning shootaround and should be considered doubtful for Thursday night.
Insight: Haslem has been dealing with the flu. Hassan Whiteside should see as many minutes as he can handle with his sore hand. Chris Andersen should also see significant playing time.
Luol Deng, F4/2/2015 11:56:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng missed Tuesday's game (bruised right knee) and is questionable for Thursday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: Deng did make it through the morning shootaround, so that's encouraging. He's averaging 14.2 ppg, but has been an inconsistent producer this season. He's produced 16 single-digit point games and 11 20-plus point games out of 65 contests.
Goran Dragic, G3/31/2015 10:47:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Goran Dragic had 19 points in the loss to the Spurs on Tuesday.
Insight: Dragic finished 6-for-14 from the field with one 3-pointer. He didn't do much else with three assists and one rebound.
Udonis Haslem, F3/31/2015 6:54:00 PM
Description: Heat power forward Udonis Haslem will not play on Tuesday versus the Spurs according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: Haslem has the flu. Chris Andersen and Hassan Whiteside are going to try and give it a go, but if owners have either of those players, it would be wise to double check they are playing before tip.
Luol Deng, F3/31/2015 6:43:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is out for Tuesday's game versus the Spurs according to South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Henry Walker will probably start with Michael Beasley and James Ennis coming off the bench. Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic, however, will see the biggest increase in value without Deng.
Udonis Haslem, FHot3/31/2015 10:10:00 AM
Description: Miami power forward Udonis Haslem is the only healthy body up front for the Heat and he has played well over the last few games.
Insight: Haslem has averaged 33 minutes over the last three games and posted 12 ppg and 11 rpg over that span. If Hassan Whiteside, Chris Andersen and Michael Beasley are all sidelined, Haslem could be a cheap source of production.
Michael Beasley, F3/31/2015 10:07:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Michael Beasley could only play seven minutes Sunday after injuring his elbow and is questionable for Tuesday's game against San Antonio.
Insight: The Miami front line is decimated by injuries and Beasley is just one of them.
Luol Deng, F3/31/2015 10:02:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng left Sunday's game with a right knee contusion that swelled up and is questionable for Tuesday's game against San Antonio.
Insight: Deng used to be a reliable source of production, but leg injuries have plagued him for much of the season. Deng's 12.4 ppg in March is his worst output since of the season.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/30/2015 3:21:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside (hand) has been cleared to play and could be back in the lineup on Tuesday, according to a Palm Beach Post report.

Chris Andersen, F/C3/30/2015 10:08:00 AM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen is questionable for Tuesday's game against San Antonio due to a sore left calf and shoulder.
Insight: Miami doesn't have very much depth with Hassan Whiteside and Michael Beasley also hurting which could leave the big man role to Udonis Haslem.
Dwyane Wade, G3/29/2015 8:48:00 PM
Description: So much for Heat guard Dwyane Wade' knee injury.
Insight: He dropped a season-high 40 points on 14-of-27 shooting from the field and 12-of-13 shooting from the line. Wade also managed six rebounds, four assists, one steal, and just one turnover.
Luol Deng, F3/29/2015 8:39:00 PM

Dwyane Wade, G3/28/2015 10:36:00 AM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade could have his knee drained on Saturday, according to Ian Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Luol Deng, F3/27/2015 9:59:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng posted a double-double during Friday's loss versus Atlanta.
Insight: Deng finished with 17 points and 10 boards, along with one assist, one steal, one block, and three turnovers. He is a top-90 player this season.
Dwyane Wade, G3/27/2015 6:48:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade (knee) will start Friday against the Hawks.
Insight: He is back in the lineup after missing Wednesday's contest. Activate him ASAP.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/27/2015 4:32:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside (hand) has been downgraded to out for Friday's contest against Atlanta.
Insight: This is just bad luck for Whiteside and his owners. Still consider him day-to-day, as well will list him as questionable for Sunday's game versus Detroit.
Dwyane Wade, G3/27/2015 11:12:00 AM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade (knee) is questionable for Friday's game against Atlanta
Insight: Frankly, Wade is questionable every game. Mario Chalmers sees extra time if Wade can't go, but most of the offense would come from Goran Dragic and Luol Deng.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/27/2015 11:10:00 AM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside is doubtful for Friday's game due to a hand injury.
Insight: If Whiteside is out, Chris Andersen is next up, but he too is questionable. Udonis Haslem posted 12 points and 12 rebounds in a substitute role on Wednesday and may have to do it again on Friday.
Chris Andersen, F/C3/27/2015 11:08:00 AM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen is questionable for Friday's game against Atlanta due to a sore left calf.
Insight: Miami doesn't have very much depth with Hassan Whiteside also hurting which could leave the big man role to Udonis Haslem.
Goran Dragic, G3/25/2015 10:13:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Goran Dragic scored a team-high 22 points during Wednesday's win over the Celtics.
Insight: Miami need it with Dwyane Wade and Hassan Whiteside out. Dragic went 8-of-16 from the field and 4-of-6 from the line. He also chipped in seven assists, five rebounds, two 3-pointers, and four turnovers.
Dwyane Wade, G3/25/2015 6:26:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade (knee) will miss Wednesday's game versus Boston.
Insight: This comes out of nowhere, especially with Hassan Whiteside out as well. Wade should be back in action next time out.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/25/2015 6:10:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside has been downgraded to out for Wednesday's contest.
Insight: Michael Beasley will start, and will see a bump in value.
Michael Beasley, F3/25/2015 2:41:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Michael Beasley will likely start if center Hassan Whiteside cannot play according to The South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Whiteside cut his hand on Tuesday and needed 10 stitches. Chris Andersen is also banged up with a calf injury, so by default, Beasley will start if Whiteside can't go. Beasley will be a cheap plug-in play option for daily leagues.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/25/2015 1:10:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside is doubtful on Wednesday versus the Celtics due to his hand injury.
Insight: Whiteside left Tuesday's game with a bloody hand and needed 10 stitches. Chris Andersen is also banged up, so Michael Beasley is projected to start versus Boston.
Dwyane Wade, GHot3/24/2015 10:51:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade led Miami with 21 points, four assists, three steals and two rebounds in the heartbreaking, 89-88, loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.
Insight: Miami had no business losing this game. The Heat led, 85-71, only to see the Bucks go on a 14-0 run to tie the game. Miami led by three with 10 seconds left with Milwaukee at the foul line. The first shot was good, but on the second attempt, there was a tie up that forced a jump ball. Milwaukee won the tip and Khris Middleton hit the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer. This victory gives Milwaukee some breathing space over Miami in the standings.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/24/2015 9:52:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside left Tuesday's game with a cut on his hand, and will not return.
Insight: This is annoying for owners, but the injury should not sideline him for too long.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/22/2015 6:17:00 PM
Description: Besides his free throw percentage, Heat center Hassan Whiteside was very efficient on Sunday versus the Thunder.
Insight: Whiteside shot 5-for-6 from the field, finishing with 13 points, six rebounds, three blocks and a steal. Unfortunately, he shot 3-of-8 at the line and his 13 points was a team-high for Miami as they fell to Oklahoma City, 93-75.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/20/2015 10:06:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside had 14 points and 10 rebounds in the victory over the Nuggets on Friday.

Dwyane Wade, GHot3/20/2015 10:03:00 PM

Dwyane Wade, GHot3/16/2015 11:00:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade was fantastic again during Monday's win over the Cavaliers.
Insight: Wade is one of the hottest players out there. He went 13-of-18 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line for 32 points, two assists, two rebounds, five steals, and three turnovers. It has been vintage Wade.
Dwyane Wade, GHot3/13/2015 10:46:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade scored a team-high 25 points during Friday's loss to the Raptors.
Insight: He shot 9-of-13 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line. Wade also managed four dimes, three boards, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block, and five turnovers. He has been on fire over the past week and change.

Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside returned from his one-game suspension and finished with nine points and 12 rebounds.

Luol Deng, F3/13/2015 2:23:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is beaten up a bit, but is expected to play Friday night.
Insight: The Heat are hurting for healthy bodies, so he'll be out there. Whether he's a good fantasy option is another story. He's only taking about 10 shots a game these days and Hassan Whiteside grabs all the rebounds, so his upside is limited.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/13/2015 11:53:00 AM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside, suspended for one game after throwing an elbow to the head of Kelly Olyny on Monday, should be back in the starting lineup.
Insight: This was the second time in eight days Whiteside has been ejected, but his teammate got on him and we'd be surprised if this type on incident comes up again. He's averaged 13.2 ppg and 12.9 rpg in 10 post All-Star game starts.
Dwyane Wade, G3/11/2015 10:57:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade continued his tear on Wednesday night.

Goran Dragic, G3/11/2015 12:59:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Goran Dragic will play versus the Nets on Wednesday.
Insight: That's good news for the Heat, who could be without Dwyane Wade Wednesday. Dragic should be in all lineups as long as he does play.
Dwyane Wade, G3/11/2015 12:57:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will be a game-time decision on Wednesday due to illness.
Insight: This seems kind of ironic after Wade had a long rant about sacrificing for teammates in response to Hassan Whiteside's latest ejection. Wade hasn't exactly been Mr. Iron Man. Wade owners should check back around game-time.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/10/2015 3:26:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside has been suspended for one game after throwing an elbow to the head of Kelly Olyny on Monday.

Hassan Whiteside, C3/9/2015 9:41:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside has been ejected from Monday's game due to a flagrant-two foul according to RotoWorld.
Insight: Whiteside is probably also going to get suspended as he elbowed Kelly Olynyk in the back of the neck. This is also the second time in eight days Whiteside has been ejected. Owners should plan on Whiteside missing multiple games.
Goran Dragic, G3/9/2015 7:29:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Goran Dragic is not starting against the Celtics on Monday.
Insight: The good news is Hassan Whiteside, Luol Deng and Dwyane Wade are starting. Dragic is out with a back issue and should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Nets.
Luol Deng, F3/9/2015 2:55:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is questionable for Monday's game against Boston due to a thigh injury.
Insight: The Heat are hurting for healthy bodies. Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside are also game-time decisions.
Hassan Whiteside, C3/9/2015 2:52:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside (ankle) will be a game-time decision on Monday.
Insight: The Heat are extremely banged up with Goran Dragic andLuol Deng also game-time decisions. Whireside is averaging 11.0 ppg and 9.8 rpg this season, but is averaging 13.7 ppg and 12.5 ppg as a starter.

Dwyane Wade, G3/7/2015 6:48:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade stated that he does not have a hip injury.
Insight: Wade declared that is simply the length of the NBA season that gives bumps and bruises. He was rested on Friday, so we expect him to suit up tonight with Miami fighting for a playoff spot.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is questionable for Saturday's game against Sacramento due to a thigh injury.
Insight: The Heat are hurting for healthy bodies. Dwyane Wade, Goran Dragic and Mario Chalmers are all hurting and questionable for Saturday's game.
Goran Dragic, G3/7/2015 11:42:00 AM
Description: Heat guard Goran Dragic was having a decent fantasy night Friday, but was forced to the sidelines when his back "just locked up."
Insight: Dragic had 18 points, five rebounds and seven assists before leaving at the end of the third quarter. Shabazz Napier should see heavy minutes.
Mario Chalmers, G3/7/2015 11:40:00 AM
Description: Miami guard Mario Chalmers is questionable for Saturday's game against Sacramento due to a knee issue.
Insight: Chalmers had already been giving up some of his playing time to Tyler Johnson so his fantasy value was limited even before he sat out Friday's game.
Goran Dragic, G3/6/2015 10:02:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Goran Dragic had a decent fantasy night, but fantasy owners were probably expecting more without Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng in the lineup.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will not play on Friday versus the Wizards.
Insight: Without Luol Deng as well, the Heat are going to start Tyler Johnson. Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside should see a ton of opportunities.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is dealing wityh a thigh issue and missed the morning shootaround.
Insight: Deng should be considered questionable. While averaging 14.6 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.9 apg, 1.0 spg, we thought he would give up more after Chris Bosh was sidelined.

Hassan Whiteside, C2/28/2015 10:12:00 PM

Insight: This game got very chippy, and Whiteside could be looking at a suspension after trying to tackle Alex Len. He had 17 points, 10 rebounds, two steals, and two blocks before departing.
Hassan Whiteside, C2/28/2015 10:12:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside grabbed 24 rebounds in the loss to Atlanta on Saturday.

Chris Andersen, F/C2/28/2015 7:04:00 PM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen is sick and will not play versus the Hawks on Saturday.

Description: Heat guard Goran Dragic had a nice game during Friday's loss against the Pelicans.
Insight: He went 9-of-13 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line for 20 points, five assists, three rebounds, one steal, and just one turnover.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng played well during Wednesday's overtime victory over the Magic.
Insight: Deng finished a team-high 21 points, along with seven boards, two assists, one 3-pointer, and one steal. He will have to continue to step up with Chris Bosh sidelined the rest of the season.

Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside recorded a double-double in the victory over the 76ers on Monday.

Luol Deng, F2/23/2015 10:16:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng led the team in scoring with 29 points as Miami defeated Philadelphia, 119-108, on Monday.
Insight: Deng hit 4-of-5 3-pointers and shot an incredible 11-for-14 from the field overall. Deng should continue to see more shot opportunities without Chris Bosh in the lineup, but don't expect him to have this kind of shooting night again.
Goran Dragic, G2/23/2015 10:13:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Goran Dragic played much better in his second game with Miami than his first.
Insight: Dragic finished with just 12 points on Saturday in his Heat debut, but he scored 23 points with 10 assists in his second game on Monday. Dragic was 9-of-14 from the field with two 3-pointers, two rebounds and two steals as well.
Hassan Whiteside, C2/21/2015 11:50:00 PM
Description: Miami center Hassan Whiteside hauled down 16 rebounds and had five blocks during Saturday's loss against the Pelicans.
Insight: He also managed 10 points to complete his double-double. Whiteside will be asked to do a lot, with Chris Bosh out for the season.
Goran Dragic, G2/21/2015 11:48:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Goran Dragic had a rough team debut on Saturday night.
Insight: He went just 4-of-11 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line for 12 points, three rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer, one steal, and one turnover during Saturday's loss. Look for Dragic to be much more effective, as he gets acclimated to his new team.
Mario Chalmers, G2/21/2015 11:47:00 PM
Description: Not only did guard Mario Chalmers lead Miami in scoring on Saturday night, but he also played a team-high 37 minutes off the bench.
Insight: This is seems like it will be a bit of an anomaly, as he scored 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the field (4-of-4 from the line). Goran Dragic will continue to start at point guard, but Chalmers looks like he will get steady minutes.
Mario Chalmers, G2/21/2015 7:13:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Mario Chalmers will come off the bench for Miami.
Insight: With Goran Dragic starting in his first game with the Heat, Chalmers will move to a reserve role. He is the 133rd-ranked player in Yahoo standard leagues, and will probably see a decline in value. However, be aware that he will likely start in games Dwyane Wade does not play, and will undoubtedly see minutes off the bench.
Chris Bosh, C/PF2/21/2015 6:25:00 PM
Description: The Miami Heat have announced that forward Chris Bosh (blood clot in lung) will miss the remainder of the season.
Insight: At this point, there is much more for Bosh to worry about other than basketball, and we wish him the absolute best. In the meantime, Hassan Whiteside will see an even bigger role, and do not be surprised if Miami brings Andray Blatch into the fold.
Udonis Haslem, F2/20/2015 10:08:00 PM
Description: Miami forward Udonis Haslem had 13 points, five rebounds and two assists versus the Knicks on Friday.
Insight: The Heat starters shared the wealth extremely well as every starter had either 12 or 13 points. Haslem was making just his third start of the season, and this was clearly his best game. The weak opponent could have had something to do with that. Even still, Haslem will begin to get looks in standard leagues if Chris Bosh is indeed out for the season. Haslem still has a lot of work to do to reach Bosh's numbers, but his line Friday is promising.
Dwyane Wade, G2/20/2015 7:05:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade is starting on Friday against the Knicks.
Insight: Wade missed a few weeks prior to the All-Star break with a hamstring issue. Wade will be the focal point on Friday without Chris Bosh, so Wade needs to be in all fantasy lineups.
Udonis Haslem, F2/20/2015 7:04:00 PM
Description: Miami forward Udonis Haslem will start in place of the injured Chris Bosh on Friday versus the Knicks.
Insight: Bosh is out with a blood clot in his lung and could miss the rest of the season. Haslem hasn't been in good in his two starts this season, 3.5 ppg, 3.0 rpg, but he has a nice matchup versus New York. Still, owners will have to be pretty desperate to roll with him.
Chris Bosh, C/PF2/20/2015 2:23:00 PM
Description: According to Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald, Heat forward Chris Bosh has been diagnosed with a blood clot in both of his lungs.
Insight: If true, Bosh could be out for the remainder of the season or longer. The Heat lineup is going to look completely different Friday night in New York without Bosh and the addition of Goran Dragic plus the return of Dwyane Wade.
Dwyane Wade, G2/19/2015 2:28:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade should be upgraded to probable for Friday's game against New York (strained right hamstring).
Insight: Wade made it through both the Wednesday and Thursday practices, so its looking good. He is averaging 21.4 ppg, 5.4 apg and 3.8 rpg when he plays. Shabazz Napier and Norris Cole will lose their limited fantasy value once he returns to the court.

Chris Bosh, C/PF2/18/2015 5:10:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh did not practice on Wednesday due to illness according to the team's twitter page.
Insight: Bosh is considered day-to-day, so he is questionable for Friday's game versus the Knicks. Owners will be hoping Bosh can play as he scored 32 points versus the Knicks last Tuesday before the break.
Hassan Whiteside, C2/11/2015 10:59:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside did it again during Wednesday's loss to the Cavaliers.
Insight: Whiteside had 17 points and 14 boards, along with one steal, and one turnover. Amazingly, he is a top-50 option.
Dwyane Wade, G2/11/2015 2:40:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel on Wednesday that he will return to the court on Feb. 20 versus the Knicks.
Insight: Wade is averaging 21.4 ppg, 5.4 apg and 3.8 rpg this season. The Miami Heat have definitely missed him and will welcome him back once he's ready. Shabazz Napier and Norris Cole will lose their limited fantasy value once that happens.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will go with the team to Cleveland, but will not face the Cavs and former teammate LeBron James Wednesday.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will go with the team to Cleveland, so there is a chance he'll face the Cavs and former teammate LeBron James Wednesday.

Mario Chalmers, G2/9/2015 10:38:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Mario Chalmers came on strong in the second half, finishing with 18 points in the victory over the Knicks on Monday.
Insight: Chalmers scored 10 of those 18 points and hit two 3-pointers in the second half. He also had six assists and five rebounds. As long as Dwyane Wade is out, Chalmers has the potential for these types of nights although Wade is practicing and could return as early as Wednesday.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will not play on Monday versus the Knicks due to his hamstring injury.

Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside (ankle) did not play on Friday night and is questionable for Monday versus New York.

Dwyane Wade, G2/9/2015 11:28:00 AM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade (right hamstring strain) got in a limited practice on Sunday, but don't expect him to be ready to go.
Insight: Wade is likely in the middle of a 2-3 week absence and a non-contact practice while headed in the right direction doesn't mean he's ready to play. Shabazz Napier and Mario Chalmers is the likely backcourt.

Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside's legend continued on Wednesday night.
Insight: He went a ridiculous 12-of-13 from the field for 24 points, 20 boards, three steals, two blocks, and four turnovers. Imagine if Whiteside was available during last season's NBA Finals for Miami.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng (calf) has missed the past three games, but is probable for Tuesday's game against Detroit.

Insight: Johnson was 4-of-9 from the field on his way to 13 points. He also had nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes. All those numbers are career-highs. If Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng miss a lot more time, Johnson will see more of the floor, but we'd like to see a larger sample size before picking him up.
Chris Bosh, C/PF2/1/2015 4:23:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh had 18 points and seven rebounds in the victory over the Celtics on Sunday.
Insight: Despite Hassan Whiteside coming on strong, Bosh has continued to produce. He is averaging 19.0 ppg and 6.0 rpg over the last five games.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng missed Tuesday and Friday's game due to a sore calf and is still questionable for Sunday's game against Boston.
Insight: With Dwyane Wade sidelined, it's a chance for Deng to post big offensive numbers if he can get out on the court. Danny granger would start if Deng can't play again.

Insight: Whiteside hasn't produced his block magic again he had last Sunday, but he had 16 points and 24 rebounds versus the Mavericks on Friday. He was 7-of-11 from the field. Give Whiteside a serious look in standard leagues.
Norris Cole, GCold1/30/2015 8:03:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Norris Cole will not start on Friday despite Dwyane Wade not in the lineup.

Insight: Wade Wade to the media on Thursday, " You won't be seeing me for a while so get a good look at this face." With Luol Deng also sidelined, Mario Chalmers is a solid fantasy option.

Insight: He went 6-of-9 from the field and 8-of-12 from the field for 21 points, eight assists, two rebounds, one 3-pointer, one block, and one turnover. Chalmers is ranked outside the top 100 in standard leagues.

Insight: He had 16 points and 16 boards, and shot 6-of-12 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. Whiteside's value is slightly limited, due to him not being a full-time starter, but he is still worth owning in all leagues.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade left Tuesday's game with a right hamstring strain according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee due to a sore left calf.
Insight: Deng missed the morning shootaround and will be a game-time decision at best. Too bad as he's played well in his last two games, including a 15-point, 10 rebound game versus Chicago on Sunday. Danny Granger would see more time if Deng is a no-go.

Hassan Whiteside, C1/25/2015 4:50:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside had a monster game on Sunday.

Hassan Whiteside, C1/25/2015 1:00:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside is expected to play Sunday.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade is doubtful for Wednesday's game after injuring his hamstring on Tuesday night.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng had a rare off night shooting, going just 3-of-11 against Portland.
Insight: Deng is shooting 50 percent on the season, but perhaps all the trade rumors have effected his shot over the past couple of games. He's averaging 14.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.8 apg, 1.2 spg, but his fantasy value could change with a new team.

Insight: He's dealing with a sprained right ankle and had to retape it Saturday and may not be ready to go Sunday. he's averaging just 4.9 ppg, 4.5 rpg so has little fantasy value.

Dwyane Wade, GHot12/31/2014 5:30:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade led the team in scoring again even though Chris Bosh is back in the lineup.
Insight: Perhaps Wade will carry the load a little bit more since he proved he could when Bosh was sidelined. It hasn't led to many Miami victories, however, and they lost to Indiana on Wednesday. Wade was 9-of-20 with 20 points, seven assists, three blocks, two rebounds and two steals.
Chris Bosh, C/PF12/29/2014 10:02:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh scored 20 points and grabbed eight rebounds in his return to the court on Monday.
Insight: Bosh played for the first time in over two weeks as he missed eight games with a calf strain. Good thing Ndamukong Suh didn't step on it to make it worse. Bosh should be properly placed back into fantasy lineups if he hasn't already been.
Chris Bosh, C/PF12/29/2014 7:08:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Magic.

Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh is dealing with a calf injury but is probable for Monday's game against Orlando.
Insight: He's missed the past eight games. Bosh been a great fantasy asset to date, averaging 21.6 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 2.1 apg, 1.1 spg. Chris Andersen's playing time will take a big hit.
Dwyane Wade, GHot12/27/2014 10:27:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade continued his hot streak, scoring 25 points against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Insight: Wade has taken it upon himself to carry the Heat since Chris Bosh went down with his injury. Since then, Wade is averaging 27.7 ppg and in his last five games, Wade is shooting 47.8 percent from the field. As long as Wade is healthy and Bosh is sidelined, Wade is a must-start.

Insight: He's been a great fantasy asset to date, averaging 21.6 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 2.1 apg, 1.1 spg and unfortunately, there is no one person to pick up the slack. Chris Andersen and Udonis Haslem get his minutes with Anderson being a low-end possibility.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade led Miami with 31 points in a win over Cleveland and his old friend LeBron James.
Insight: Wade shot very well in the first half when he posted 24 points, but struggled with his shot after the break. Fortunately, Luol Deng picked up the slack. Wade added five rebounds, five assists and two steals.
Justin Hamilton, C12/25/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Backup center Justin Hamilton (concussion) is doubtful for Thursday's game against Cleveland.

Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh is dealing with a calf injury but had hoped to be back for the Christmas Day game against his old pal LeBron James.

Insight: Wade accounted for nearly half the Heat's scoring with 42 points. Wade was 12-of-19 from the field, hit two 3-pointers and made an incredible 16-of-21 free throws. He didn't do much else, four rebounds and three assists, but fantasy owners will obviously take the scoring. Unfortunately for Miami, they lost 105-87, against Utah. Wade could be in for more big scoring nights as long as Chris Bosh is out.
Dwyane Wade, G12/17/2014 6:05:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will play on Wednesday against the Jazz.
Insight: Wade played through an illness on Tuesday, scoring 28 points in the victory over the Nets. Wade is apparently feeling better and is a must-start with no Chris Bosh in the lineup.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade came up big during Tuesday's win over the Nets.
Insight: Wade went 12-of-24 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line for 28 points, five rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, and two turnovers. As long as Chris Bosh is sidelined, Wade should have the chance to put up big numbers.
Dwyane Wade, G12/16/2014 12:34:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade is questionable for Tuesday's game against Brooklyn due to flu-like symptoms and missed the morning shootaround.
Insight: That doesn't bode well for fantasy owners. Wade has solid averages this season (21.1 ppg, 5.5 apg, 3.6 rpg, 1.0 spg), and if he can get healthy with Chris Bosh out of the lineup, Wade's scoring won't be limited.
Dwyane Wade, G12/15/2014 4:24:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade is questionable for Tuesday's game against Brooklyn due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Wade has solid averages this season (21.1 ppg, 5.5 apg, 3.6 rpg, 1.0 spg), and if he can get healthy with Chris Bosh out of the lineup, Wade's scoring won't be limited.
Chris Bosh, C/PF12/15/2014 4:19:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh is dealing with a calf injury that will sideline him indefinitely.
Insight: it could be a day-to-day thing or a week-to-week injury, we don't know. He's been a great fantasy asset to date, averaging 21.6 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 2.1 apg, 1.1 spg and there is no one person to pick up the slack.
Chris Bosh, C/PF12/13/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh scored 22 points in Friday's win versus Phoenix.
Insight: He went 9-of-16 from the floor and 3-of-4 from the line. Bosh also had nine rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer, two blocks, one steal, and one turnover. He is a top-20 option.

Insight: He finished with a team-high 29 points and seven assists, along with chipping in three rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block, and three turnovers. Wade has solid averages this season (21.3 ppg, 5.9 apg, 3.5 rpg, 1.1 spg), and if he can stay healthy, those numbers should remain intact.
Dwyane Wade, G12/12/2014 4:18:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade missed the morning shootaround and must be considered doubtful for Thursday's game.
Insight: The shooting guard is averaging 19.0 ppg and 4.5 rpg, and 4.7 apg. Mario Chalmers gets the bulk of the minutes if Wade can't go. Chalmers averages 17.4 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 6.5 apg in eight starts this season making him a viable option with Wade out fo the lineup.
Josh McRoberts, F12/10/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Heat power forward Josh McRoberts (knee) will not play Wednesday against Denver.
Insight: Justin Hamilton will start and McRoberts should be considered day-to-day.

Description: Heat power forward Josh McRoberts is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: McRoberts has played his best two games of the season in the last week, so it would be ashame if he can't go. McRoberts is dealing with a bruise on his knee. He is shooting 76.9 percent with 24 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds over the last two games.
Luol Deng, F12/10/2014 9:09:00 AM

Norris Cole, GCold12/7/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Heat guard Norris Cole has missed a couple of games due to illness, but practiced Saturday and is probable for Sunday's game against Memphis.
Insight: Cole is averaging just 6.9 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 3.1 apg, 1.1 apg and isn't fantasy worthy at that level of production.
Luol Deng, F12/7/2014 11:05:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng fell hard during Wednesday's game versus the Hawks, injured his hand and did not play Friday night, but practiced Saturday and is probable for Sunday versus Memphis.
Insight: Deng is averaging 13.6 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 1.3 apg, 1.3 spg and plays more than 31 minutes a night which isn't up to his Chicago Bulls level, but still worthy of consideration.
Chris Bosh, C/PF12/6/2014 8:49:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh did not play very well on Friday but still managed to score 21 points.
Insight: Bosh only shot 39 percent and made 1-of-6 3-pointers in the, 109-85, loss to Milwaukee. Bosh also fell a little bit short of his averages in other categories with six rebounds and one assist.

Insight: Deng is averaging 13.6 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 1.3 apg, 1.3 spg and plays more than 31 minutes a night. There could be a lot of minutes available as Danny Granger is also questionable. James Ennis could reap the benefits.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng fell hard during Wednesday's game versus the Hawks and injured his hand according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade made it throught the morning shootaround and will start Sunday versus the Knicks.
Insight: Wade, who is averaging 19.0 ppg,.5 rpg, 4.7 apg, had missed seven straight games with the injury. His return will reduce the value of Mario Chalmers.

Description: Heat center Chris Andersen's "out-for-a-while" has a timetable - 2-3 weeks.
Insight: He's dealing with a sprained right ankle. With a 2.2 ppg, 2.9 rpg average he isn't fantasy worthy, even when healthy.

Insight: He was 10-of-19 from the field, 4-of-5 from the line, and 2-of-3 from deep. Bosh also had nine rebounds, one assist, one block, and two steals. He is easily the top option in Miami.
Norris Cole, G11/25/2014 12:18:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Norris Cole (finger) made it through the tuesday morning shootaround and should be ready to return tonight.
Insight: Dwyane Wade is expected to be sidelined, so Norris could see plenty of playing time and shots if he can go.
Dwyane Wade, G11/25/2014 12:15:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will miss his seventh straight game on Tuesday.
Insight: We don't know of a timetable for his return. Norris Cole is also questionable, though he did get through the morning shootaround which means Shabazz Napier could be a viable option.
Chris Andersen, F/C11/25/2014 12:12:00 PM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen is out for Tuesday's game against Golden State due to a sprained right ankle.
Insight: In fact, coach Erik Spoelstra said he would be "out for a while." With a 2.2 ppg, 2.9 rpg average he isn't fantasy worthy.
Mario Chalmers, GHot11/22/2014 9:37:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Mario Chalmers continued his strong play.
Insight: He started again and went 10-of-16 from the field for 24 points, eight assists, five rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal, and two turnovers. Chalmers should continue to be a solid play.

Insight: He was 13-of-20 from the floor and 4-of-6 froom downtown for 32 points. Bosh also had 10 rebounds, one assist, one block, and three turnovers.

Dwyane Wade, G11/22/2014 2:32:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will miss his fifth straight game on Saturday.
Insight: Norris Cole is also doubtful, so Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier will get all the minutes at guard. Wade did some light work during shootaround, so he is questionable for Sunday.
Chris Bosh, C/PF11/20/2014 10:41:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh scored 28 points in the, 110-91, loss to the Clippers on Thursday.

Dwyane Wade, G11/20/2014 7:08:00 PM

Dwyane Wade, G11/20/2014 2:12:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will not play on Monday and is doubtful for Thursday's game against the LA Clippers.

Josh McRoberts, F11/20/2014 1:50:00 PM
Description: Heat power forward Josh McRoberts (toe) practiced Thursday morning and is in line to play Thursday night against the Clippers
Insight: He's done nothing to show us he should be in fantasy lineups averaging 2.6 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 0.4 apg.
Luol Deng, F11/20/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng did not play on Monday, but despite a doubtful tag practiced Thursday morning.
Insight: Owners should consider him a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Clippers.
Danny Granger, SF11/20/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: Heat shooting guard Danny Granger played 20 minutes Monday and could see that much time Thursday if Deng is again inactive.
Insight: Deng did practice at the morning shootaround and even with the 20 minutes Granger only managed four points, zero rebounds and assists. He's not fantasy worthy.
Mario Chalmers, G11/17/2014 10:03:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Mario Chalmers scored a team-high 22 points Monday against the Nets.
Insight: He has started the past two games due to Dwyane Wade's injury, but do not be surprised if Chalmers starts over Norris Cole when Wade returns.

Dwyane Wade, G11/17/2014 6:14:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will not play on Monday against the Nets.
Insight: Wade was not expected to play Monday and could miss more games. Mario Chalmers has been great the past two games, so he should be in all starting lineups, and Shabazz Napier should get some consideration as long as Wade is sidelined.
Dwyane Wade, G11/17/2014 2:05:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade has missed the past two games and is doubtful for Monday, though he did travel with the team to Brooklyn.
Insight: It appeared to be a minor problem, but a similar injury forced him to sit for nine games last season. He's averaging 19.8 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 6.4 apg and the Heat don't have any replacement that can post those types of numbers. Mario Chalmers started Sunday.
Dwyane Wade, G11/16/2014 10:56:00 AM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade is questionable for Sunday's game against Milwaukee due to tightness in his left hamstring.
Insight: It appeared to be a minor problem, but it kept him out of Friday's game, so as always, he's a game-time decision. He's scored 20 or more in four straight games, so if he plays he should be in all lineups ... if he plays.
Mario Chalmers, G11/14/2014 9:54:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Mario Chalmers played his best game of the season during Friday's loss to Atlanta.
Insight: He was 7-of-11 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line for 23 points off the bench. Chalmers also played 40 minutes and had 11 assists, one rebound, and three turnovers. Do not be surprised if he is starting next game.

Description: Backup center Justin Hamilton has a slight strain of his hip flexor and is questionable for Friday's game against Atlanta.

Dwyane Wade, G11/14/2014 10:47:00 AM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade is probable for Friday's game against Atlanta with a sore left hamstring.
Insight: It appears to be a minor problem, but with the injury-prone Wade it's always a "game-time" decision.
Dwyane Wade, G11/12/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade scored a team-high 20 points in Wednesday's loss to Indiana.
Insight: He was 8-of-16 from the floor, but only 3-of-7 from the line. Wade also had four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block, and one turnover. More importantly, he has looked healthy this season.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng scored 14 points in Saturday's win over Minnesota.
Insight: He is averaging 13.2 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 1.5 apg, and 1.3 spg. His scoring decline was to be expected, but owners are hoping his rebounding and assist totals increase soon.
Dwyane Wade, G11/8/2014 9:56:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade scored a team-high 25 points in Saturday's win over Minnesota.
Insight: He was 11-of-16 from the field, with eight assists and two steals, in only 30 minutes of action. Fantasy owners will take this stat line every single night from Wade.

Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh continued his strong start to the season.
Insight: He had 24 points, seven rebounds, and two assists in Saturday's victory over the Timberwolves. Bosh is turning into a steal of a pick this season.

Chris Bosh, C/PF11/5/2014 9:42:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh recorded another double-double in a losing effort to the Hornets on Wednesday.
Insight: Bosh had 23 points and 13 rebounds. He contributed just one assist and one steal, but fantasy owners are loving the double figures in points and rebounds.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade played well in 31 minutes of action.
Insight: He was 7-of-11 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line for his 19 points. Wade will continue to produce, but will also have some down games, throughout the season.

Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh scored a team-high 21 points, Tuesday's loss to Houston.
Insight: He was 8-of-14 from the field, including two 3-pointers. Bosh also had eight rebounds, one assist, and two steals. He is clearly comfortable being the go-to guy in Miami.
Udonis Haslem, F11/4/2014 11:37:00 AM
Description: Miami forward Udonis Haslem (sore quad) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Houston.
Insight: Haslem has yet to make his 2014-15 debut. The 34-year-old has minimal fantasy value.
Danny Granger, SF11/4/2014 11:36:00 AM
Description: Heat shooting guard Danny Granger is questionable for Tuesday's game against Houston.
Insight: Luol Deng is a "minutes hog" and should keep Granger on the bench for long stretches. Granger has yet to play this season. He has been in steep decline for a few years now and has little fantasy value.
Chris Andersen, F/C11/4/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen is questionable for Tuesday's game against Houston due to bruised ribs.
Insight: At 35-years-old, Andersens numbers are down and at this level (3.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 1.0 spg) he's not worthy of a spot on fantasy rosters.
Dwyane Wade, G11/2/2014 6:04:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will play the second of the back-to-back games this weekend.
Insight: Wade was mediocre in the first one, but fantasy owners have to be excited that he's playing tonight. He only did that three times all last season.
Chris Bosh, C/PF11/1/2014 9:48:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh continued his great start to the season with 30 points on Saturday.
Insight: Bosh made 9-of-17 field goals, including two 3-pointers, and 10-of-11 from the line. He added eight rebounds, four assists and two steals. He seems to be relishing in the opportunity to be "the man" in Miami.
Josh McRoberts, F10/31/2014 4:12:00 PM
Description: Heat power forward Josh McRoberts (toe surgery) practiced in full during Friday's session.
Insight: He is getting close to game-action, and will have a chance to suit up Saturday in Philadelphia. McRoberts will provide owners with some three-pointers, rebounds, and a solid field goal percenatge, during the season.
Norris Cole, GHot10/30/2014 1:26:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Norris Cole was huge in his opener - 23 points, three rebounds, two assists.
Insight: It will be interesting to see if he can do it on a consistent basis or if this was just opening night enthusiasm. The Heat have a number of options should he falter in Shabazz Napier and Mario Chalmers so Cole is still a risky option.
Dwyane Wade, G10/29/2014 10:26:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade hit some big shots down the stretch, and helped Miami beat Washington in the season opener.
Insight: He shot 8-of-16 for 21 points, made two 3-pointers, and had two steals. Owners need to be aware that Wade will probably not suit up every game, but if he posts numbers like tonight's, then he will be in line for a nice season.
Chris Bosh, C/PF10/29/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh played extremely well in first post-Lebron James game.
Insight: He had 26 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, and four 3-pointers. Pretty impressive, and there is no reason to think this will not continue.
Danny Granger, SF10/27/2014 5:18:00 PM
Description: Heat shooting guard Danny Granger is no longer a fantasy stud.
Insight: He has been in slow decline for a few years, and now at 31-years-old, he is simply a hanicap to Luol Deng.
Chris Andersen, F/C10/27/2014 5:15:00 PM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen is still relevant in deep fantasy leagues.
Insight: Even at 35-years-old, Andersen posted career numbers last season in points, rebounds, blocks and field goal percentage. Andersen is worth drafting in deep leagues even though he is 36.
Josh McRoberts, F10/27/2014 5:13:00 PM
Description: Heat power forward Josh McRoberts is capable of putting up solid fantasy numbers this season.
Insight: McRoberts signed with Miami to be a rotational support player behind LeBron James, so now he will see more chances. He could average 12 PPG, 3.5 APG, 7.5 RPG, and over one 3-pointer per game this season.
Chris Bosh, C10/27/2014 5:05:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Chris Bosh is due for a big season with the Heat.
Insight: Bosh was a fantasy stud with Toronto five years ago but was the third-option when he arrived in Miami. Now he is the No. 1 guy again with better peices than he had with the Raptors. Bosh is only 30 and is fresher than most 30-year-olds due to his lack of use the last half decade.
Mario Chalmers, G10/27/2014 5:01:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Mario Chalmers will be motivated to play well this season since he is in a contract year.
Insight: Chalmers could set career highs in 3-pointers, assists and steals without LeBron James on the roster, but his ceiling is lower than ever with Dwyane Wade, Shabazz Napier and Norris Cole all in the back court.
Dwyane Wade, G10/27/2014 4:58:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade has more miles on his body than a traditional 33-year old.
Insight: Wade will turn 33 this season, and he has logged 26,331 minutes in his career. Wade said he would like to play in at least 75 games this season, but he has only reached that total five times in his 11-year career. Wade will be a solid fantasy contributor this season, but don't grab him in the second round thinking you are getting the future Hall-of-Fame version of Wade.
Norris Cole, G10/27/2014 4:51:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Norris Cole is no better than a backup fantasy player for this upcoming season.
Insight: Cole will have a hard time receiving minutes with veteran Mario Chalmers and rookie first-round pick Shabazz Napier ready to crack the starting lineup. Oh, and Miami still has that Dwayne Wade guy. Cole might be more valuable if, or rather when, Wade goes down with an injury.
Ray Allen, G10/10/2014 8:39:00 PM
Description: Ray Allen will likely wait until January or even the All-Star Break to sign with a team according to NBC Sports.
Insight: It sounds like Allen is pulling a Roger Clemens, waiting until halfway through the season to see which teams are ready to make a playoff run and where he would fit the best. That's great for Allen, but it makes him fantasy irrelevant.
Greg Oden, C8/7/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Free agent center Greg Oden was arrested Thursday on " two preliminary charges of misdemeanor battery after allegedly punching a woman," according to a Sports Illustrated report.
Insight: If any team was thinking about signing Oden to a contract this should end those thoughts.
Greg Oden, C8/5/2014 3:55:00 PM
Description: Centers Greg Oden, Andrew Bynum, Emeka Okafor and Andray Blatche will visit the Los Angeles Clippers this week, according to a Triity Miller report.
Insight: Is that all that's available ... broken down big men? Three of the four did less than nothing in 2013 and only Blatche (11.2 ppg, 5.3 rpg with Brooklyn) would have any fantasy value.
Dwyane Wade, G7/15/2014 3:38:00 PM
Description: Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has signed a deal to stay with Miami.
Insight: A healthy Wade would be a fantasy stud with LeBron James back home in Cleveland, but fantasy owners will have to weight what a "part-time" Wade is worth. He's likely to continue the strategy of not playing any back-to-back games to save his gimpy knees.
Mario Chalmers, G7/13/2014 8:20:00 PM
Description: Mario Chalmers tweeted that he has agreed to re-sign with the Heat.
Insight: Chalmers averaged 9.8 points, 4.9 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.2 threes last season. Chalmers could have a larger ball-handling role in 2014-15 now that LeBron James is gone. Of course, he also may lose the starting point guard job to rookie Shabazz Napier.
Chris Bosh, C7/11/2014 7:42:00 PM
Description: According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Chris Bosh is finalizing a five-year, $118 million contract with the Heat.
Insight: After LeBron James announced he was going back to the Cavaliers on Friday, Bosh was expected to sign with the Rockets, but the Heat were able to give him an extra $32 million. With James gone, Bosh will handle a much larger offensive workload than he did in the past few years.
Danny Granger, SF7/7/2014 10:20:00 PM
Description: The Heat have agreed to a two-year contract with Danny Granger, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Granger is a high-character guy who will bring veteran experience to the Heat. However, he's not going to carry fantasy value.
Josh McRoberts, F7/7/2014 10:16:00 PM
Description: The Heat have agreed to a reported four-year contract with power forward Josh McRoberts, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
Insight: Charlotte drafted Cody Zeller fourth overall last season but then started McRoberts 78 games. McRoberts contributed 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.3 threes, 0.7 steals and 0.6 blocks while averaging 30.3 minutes per game. He could end up starting at the four for Miami, but who his teammates will be is up in the air.
Chris Bosh, C6/29/2014 7:15:00 PM
Description: Chris Bosh informed Miami that he will opt out of his contract to become and unrestricted free agent, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Bosh has joined LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, who already opted out. It would be a surprise if any of the three players left the Heat.
Ray Allen, G6/24/2014 9:02:00 PM
Description: Ray Allen is "leaning toward" coming back for another season. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: Why not? He can still shoot. Allen, who is set to become a free agent on July 1st, will turn 39 later this offseason.
LeBron James, F6/24/2014 2:57:00 PM
Description: LeBron James' agent has informed the Heat that James will opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.
Insight: Look for LeBron to handle his free agency this offseason much better than he did in 2010. The Heat, Bulls, Lakers, Rockets and Cavaliers are among the teams expected to make a serious run at signing him.
LeBron James, F6/21/2014 3:50:00 PM
Description: Houston's top priority this offseason is to land LeBron James in free agency. SOURCE: Howard Beck, Bleacher Report
Insight: A frontcourt of James, Chandler Parsons and Dwight Howard would instantly make the Rockets championship contenders. Of course, LeBron would have to opt out of his current deal with Miami to make that happen. The deadline for LeBron to opt in or out is June 30th. Though Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh seem content to stay in Miami, James has been noncommital about his future. The Cavs, Clippers and Mavericks could also make a run at James if he decides to test the open market.
Dwyane Wade, G6/17/2014 8:59:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Tom Haberstroh thinks the Heat should have Dwyane Wade come off the bench next season.
Insight: Of course, that's assuming Wade stays in Miami. Remember, Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh can all opt out of their contracts this summer. Haberstroh's suggestion makes plenty of sense. Miami's second unit didn't contribute very much this postseason and at age 32, it would be wise to scale back Wade's minutes. Of course, the decision is up to Erik Spoelstra, who has only used Wade as a reserve once in six seasons.
Chris Andersen, F/C6/16/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen has decided to opt out of his contract. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: Andersen had one year remaining but now he'll become a free agent. Birdman contributed 6.6 ppg this season, his highest average since 2005. Despite opting out, we'd expect him back with the Heat next year on a new deal.
Ray Allen, G6/16/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: A decision on Ray Allen's future should come in the next few days. SOURCE: Marc Spears, Yahoo Sports
Insight: Even if Allen does play another season, it may not be with the Heat as he enters free agency. Allen had a rough game Sunday in the season finale, shooting just 1-of-8 for five points in 31 minutes of action.
LeBron James, F6/15/2014 11:07:00 PM
Description: Miami forward LeBron James gave a strong effort in Game 5 but it wasn't enough as the Spurs won 104-87 to capture their fifth NBA title.
Insight: His teammates didn't show much this series but LeBron (31 points, ten rebounds, five assists) still averaged an incredible 28.2 ppg on 57.1 percent shooting. This loss will sting but James and the Heat should compete for a title again next year as long as the team keep its core together.
Ray Allen, G6/15/2014 8:04:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Ray Allen will start Game 5 against San Antonio on Sunday night. SOURCE: Ethan Skolnick, Bleacher Report
Insight: Mario Chalmers, who has struggled this series, will come off the bench. We suspect LeBron James will be running the point. If the Spurs win tonight, this could be Allen's final game in the NBA. The veteran hinted at retirement earlier this week.
Ray Allen, G6/13/2014 8:48:00 PM
Description: Miami sixth man Ray Allen hinted he could retire after this season. SOURCE: Boston Globe
Insight: Allen is still an effective long-range shooter but at age 38, he may decide he wants to spend more time with his family. When Allen does end his career, he'll retire as the the greatest three-point shooter in NBA history.
LeBron James, F6/8/2014 11:09:00 PM
Description: Heat forward LeBron James was the best player on the court Sunday night in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.
Insight: James wasn't able to finish Game 1 because of cramping but he never faltered on Sunday, scoring 35 points on 14-of-22 shooting. His assist to Chris Bosh on a corner three with 1:17 remaining sealed the win for Miami. The series is tied 1-1 heading into Tuesday's Game 3.
LeBron James, F6/6/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Miami forward LeBron James led all scorers with 25 points in Game 1 of the Finals Thursday but cramped up in the fourth quarter and missed time down the stretch.
Insight: The exhaustion was likely brought on by a broken air conditioner, which caused temperatures in the arena to reach up to 90 degrees. James was given an IV after the game and left the arena under his own power so it appears he'll be ready for Game 2 on Sunday. Without James, the Spurs were able to finish the game on a 16-3 run. The Heat still haven't won a Game 1 on the road since LeBron James joined the team in 2010.
Shane Battier, F6/2/2014 8:42:00 PM
Description: Shane Battier will join ESPN as a college basketball analyst when he retires at the end of the season. SOURCE: Jeff Heisenberg, Yahoo Sports
Insight: Battier is trying to go out on top by winning his third championship. He hasn't been much of a factor this postseason, contributing just 3.1 ppg in 12 contests.
Chris Andersen, F/C5/30/2014 8:14:00 PM
Description: Miami center Chris Andersen (thigh) is active for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Friday night, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
Insight: It's unclear how much he'll play after he missed Games 4 and 5 and the shootaround Friday morning. Rashard Lewis played 31 minutes and had 18 points with six threes in Game 5 and will start again.
Chris Andersen, F/C5/30/2014 3:22:00 PM
Description: Miami center Chris Andersen didn't play Wednesday in Game 5 versus Indiana and missed Friday morning shootaround so he must be categorized as doubtful for Game 6 against the Pacers.
Insight: He's been dealing with a thigh injury. Rashard Lewis had 18 points Wednesday night and should expect to see another heavy workload if Birdman sits out.
Chris Bosh, C5/28/2014 8:56:00 PM
Description: Chris Bosh is willing to take a paycut if it keeps him in Miami next season. SOURCE: Brian Windhorst, ESPN
Insight: Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James can all opt out of their contracts this summer. There's been some buzz about James possibly leaving Miami for his hometown Cavaliers but ultimately we'd expect all three to return to South Beach next season.
Chris Andersen, F/C5/28/2014 8:42:00 PM
Description: The Birdman will not take flight. Miami center Chris Andersen won't play Wednesday in Game 5 versus Indiana. SOURCE: Barry Jackson, Miami Herald
Insight: This will be the second game he's missed with a thigh injury. Rashard Lewis, who is still scoreless for the series, should see a heavy workload in Birdman's absence.
Ray Allen, G5/28/2014 8:38:00 PM
Description: Heat shooting guard Ray Allen is active for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Pacers. SOURCE: Barry Jackson, Miami Herald
Insight: Allen tweaked his hip in Game 4 but was given the go ahead after making it through his usual pre-game routine without any issues. He's averaged 10 ppg on 40.7 percent shooting for the series. Allen has been particularly effective from long range, making 44.4 percent of his shots from that distance over the last four games.
Chris Andersen, F/C5/28/2014 2:18:00 PM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen missed Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals due to a thigh contusion and he'll be a game-time decision for Game 5 after sitting out Wednesday's shootaround., according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Andersen suffered the injury in Game 3 when he collided with teammate Dwyane Wade. He's played 23.7 minutes per game in the series and averaged 6.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks.
Ray Allen, G5/28/2014 2:15:00 PM
Description: Miami guard Ray Allen (hip) will be a game-time decision for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals Wednesday night, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Allen didn't participate in the shootaround. He bruised his hip when he attempted to run through a screen in Game 4 but returned to the game. He has averaged 10 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 threes per game in the series, which the Heat lead 3-1.
Chris Andersen, F/C5/26/2014 8:02:00 PM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen will miss Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals due to a thigh contusion, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Andersen suffered the injury in Game 3. He's played 23.7 minutes per game in the series and averaged 6.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks. Rashard Lewis and Udonis Haslem will have to pick up the slack.
Ray Allen, G5/25/2014 9:31:00 AM
Description: Ray Allen was quiet in the first three quarters but he came on strong late as the Heat won for the second time in as many games Saturday against Indiana.
Insight: Allen (16 points) didn't even attempt a three-pointer in the first 36 minutes but he made all four of his trifectas in the fourth to finish with his highest point total of the series. If Allen keeps hitting his threes, Miami is going to be tough to beat.
Dwyane Wade, GHot5/25/2014 9:18:00 AM
Description: Miami guard Dwyane Wade blew up for 23 points in Saturday's win over the Pacers.
Insight: He's shot better than 50 percent from the field in each of his last five games while scoring 20 points or more in five of his last six. Though usually a below average three-point shooter, Wade has made three of his five attempts so far in this series.
LeBron James, FHot5/25/2014 9:12:00 AM
Description: Heat forward LeBron James did it all Saturday in a win over Indiana.
Insight: The Pacers jumped out to an early 14-point lead but it was all Miami after that. James, who seems incapable of turning in a bad performance at this point, delivered 26 points, five boards, seven assists and four steals. He left briefly with a leg cramp but still logged a team-high 40 minutes. The Heat can extend its advantage Monday night in Game 4.
Greg Oden, C5/24/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden is expected to be active for Saturday's Game 3 against Indiana. SOURCE: Ira Winderman, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Insight: He hasn't played yet in the postseason. If Oden (2.9 ppg, 2.3 rpg in 23 games this season) does see the court on Saturday it will only be for a couple of minutes.
Dwyane Wade, GHot5/21/2014 9:35:00 AM
Description: Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade had another efficient game Tuesday against the Pacers.
Insight: Wade converted ten of his 16 field goal attempts for a team-high 23 points. He's been a beast over his last three games, averaging 26 ppg on impressive 61.5 percent shooting. Erik Spoelstra's decision to rest Wade at the end of the regular season seems to be paying off.
Chris Bosh, CCold5/20/2014 11:46:00 AM
Description: Heat center Chris Bosh has seen his scoring average drop a couple points in the playoffs - from 16.2 ppg to 14.0 ppg.
Insight: Bosh is taking one less shot per game and his shooting percentage is down as well despite playing a couple extra minutes per game.
LeBron James, FHot5/20/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Heat forward LeBron James has pushed his scoring average up more than two points during the playoff run from 27.1 ppg to 29.5 ppg.
Insight: As James' scoring average has gone up, his assist totals have dropped from a regular season average of 6.3 apg to 4.7 apg in 10 playoff games. With Miami's season hanging in the balance, it's no surprise James has taken on more of the scoring burden.
Dwyane Wade, GHot5/18/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: Miami guard Dwyane Wade dropped 27 points on the Pacers Sunday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Insight: After coasting through the first round and a half, Wade has been brilliant over his last two outings, averaging 27.5 ppg on 61.1 percent shooting. Lance Stephenson said before the series that Wade's knee wouldn't hold up but it looked just fine in Game 1. We'll see what Wade does for an encore Tuesday in Game 2.
LeBron James, F5/18/2014 7:09:00 PM
Description: Miami forward LeBron James totaled 25 points, ten boards, five assists and three steals Sunday against the Pacers.
Insight: In terms of efficiency, it was a pretty typical outing for James, who shot 11-for-18 from the floor while commiting four turnovers. What stood out were his two free throws, the fewest James has attempted in a game since May 6th versus Brooklyn. James will need to be more aggressive on Tuesday if the Heat want to even the series.
LeBron James, FHot5/14/2014 9:51:00 PM
Description: Heat forward LeBron James helped Miami close out Brooklyn with 29 points, nine rebounds, five assists and two threes in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals Wednesday night.
Insight: James didn't have a great shooting night (6-of-14), but he made 15-of-17 from the free-throw line. The 29-year-old averaged 30 points per game during the series, which Miami won 4-1.
Dwyane Wade, G5/14/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade had 28 points on 10-of-18 shooting in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals Wednesday night.
Insight: Miami beat Brooklyn, 96-94, to win the series. The Heat will move on to the Eastern Conference Finals for the fourth straight season. Wade has averaged 17.9 ppg in these playoffs.
LeBron James, F5/12/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Miami forward LeBron James tied a playoff career-high with 49 points Monday in a win over Brooklyn.
Insight: That's the most points the Nets have ever allowed to a single player in a postseason game. LeBron had a chance for 50 but he missed his second free throw with one second left in the fourth quarter. The Heat can close out the series Wednesday in Game 5.
