Highsmith will not return to Saturday's game against the Nets due to a lower back contusion. He finished with eight points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds and one block in 15 minutes.
Highsmith took a hard fall under the basket and was in a lot of pain. The Heat were already missing a lot of players Saturday, so Nikola Jovic and Cole Swider picked up some minutes with the second unit. Miami's next game is Tuesday against the Bucks, and Highsmith should be considered questionable.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Produces in blowout victory
Highsmith recorded 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal across 25 minutes during Wednesday's 129-96 victory over the Cavaliers.
Highsmith got back on track Wednesday, delivering a serviceable two-way line. Despite continuing to start for the Heat, his production has been slightly underwhelming of late. While his role appears relatively secure for the moment, this performance is not enough to vault him into the standard league discussion. At best, he should be viewed as a defensive streaming option.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Fills up stat sheet in win
Highsmith registered 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt), five steals, four rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 111-105 victory over Charlotte.
Highsmith was an elite defensive playmaker, forcing seven turnovers on a night where Miami had only seven as a team. He also scored efficiently, but Tuesday's performance remains more indicative of his ceiling than a realistic game-to-game expectation. That said, on the heels of the big outing, Highsmith may have increased his job security as a starting forward alongside Jimmy Butler.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Efficient from field Wednesday
Highsmith finished with 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two steals across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 108-102 victory over Memphis.
Highsmith opened the season injured but has looked good of late, starting each of the Heat's last three games and scoring a season-high mark in this one. It's only been four games, but his efficiency stands out since he's shooting a strong 59.1 percent from the field.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Starting Friday
Highsmith will start Friday's game against the Wizards.
Jaime Jaquez had been starting previously for the Heat in place of Kevin Love (shoulder). However, even though Love is available to play Friday, the veteran will come off the bench with Haywood Highsmith drawing the start. Highsmith has played well to begin the season, averaging 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Plays 22 minutes in season debut
Highsmith (knee) logged 22 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 109-105 loss to Brooklyn, finishing with nine points (3-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.
Highsmith was cleared to make his season debut Wednesday after he missed Miami's first four games while recovering from an MCL sprain of his left knee, an injury he suffered late in the preseason. Miami was without Kevin Love (shoulder) and Caleb Martin (knee) on Wednesday, and while the latter is facing an uncertain timeline for a return, Love should be back in action Friday versus the Wizards. The expected return of Love could result in Highsmith's playing time taking a hit if the Heat aren't missing any other key rotation players aside from Martin.... See More ... See Less

Highsmith was diagnosed with an MCL sprain on Oct. 19 and was slated to be re-evaluated in two weeks. However, he seems to be slightly ahead of schedule. If he's able to go Wednesday, Highsmith would provide fresh legs to a Miami offense that ranks 26th in efficiency.... See More ... See Less
