Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Meager role in loss
Yurtseven finished Saturday's 113-99 loss to the Bulls with zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal across five minutes.
Yurtseven has appeared in four straight games since making his season debut March 11, but he's played over 10 minutes just once and saw a season-low five minutes during Saturday's double-digit loss. Miami continues to go small with its second unit, as Max Strus and Caleb Martin were the top forwards off the bench behind Kevin Love, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo. Yurtseven is competing with Haywood Highsmith for the top backup center gig, but neither of them have produced enough recently to warrant attention during the fantasy playoffs.... See More ...

Yurtseven (ankle) logged seven minutes off the bench Saturday in the Heat's 126-114 overtime loss to the Magic, finishing with zero points (0-1 FG) and one rebound.
After recovering from mid-November surgery to address an impingement, bone spur and stress reaction in his left ankle, Yurtseven was cleared for game action earlier this month, but he had been limited to only two appearances in the G League before finally getting the chance to debut for Miami on Saturday. Yurtseven had been outside of the Heat's rotation, but he stepped in as the backup center behind starter Bam Adebayo when Cody Zeller exited early Saturday due to a facial laceration that required stitches. If Zeller isn't ready to play in the Heat's next game Monday versus Utah, Yurtseven could handle a 10-to-15-minute role behind Adebayo.... See More ... See Less

He immediately stepped into a massive role for the team, playing 37 minutes and tying for the team high with 27 points.

Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Cleared for high-impact work
Yurtseven's left ankle has fully healed from surgery, and he's been cleared for high-impact work, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Yurtseven underwent successful surgery in mid-November to address an impingement, bone spur and stress reaction in his left ankle.

Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Likely to undergo surgery
Yurtseven (ankle) is expected to undergo surgery later this week and is out indefinitely, Anthony Chiang of The Miami Herald reports.
Yurtseven has already missed each of the Heat's first 13 regular-season games, and with surgery on tap, he'll be in store for an even longer absence to begin the campaign.

The 24-year-old big man will become a restricted free agent this summer.... See More ... See Less
