  • Heat's Tyler Herro: Traveling with team

    Herro (knee) is traveling with the team on their West Coast trip that begins with Monday's game against the Kings, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Herro had an injury scare to his left knee at the end of Friday's win over New Orleans. However, the 23-year-old guard appears to have avoided a serious injury, and his traveling with the team is a good sign for his availability against Sacramento.

  • Heat's Duncan Robinson: Drills five threes in victory

    Robinson contributed 17 points (6-14 FG, 5-11 3Pt), two assists and two blocks across 31 minutes during Friday's 106-95 win over the Pelicans.

    Robinson made a significant impact from the bench, outperforming starters Nikola Jovic and Caleb Martin in the victory. The Heat have found it difficult to fit Robinson into the first unit, as Martin and Jovic provide a defensive skill set that's superior to Robinson's. However, the sharpshooter possesses a deft three-point shot that gives the Heat an offensive shot in the arm. He offers good value as a three-point producer in category-based fantasy formats.

  • Heat's Bam Adebayo: Turns in 24 points

    Adebayo totaled 24 points (11-18 FG, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal over 36 minutes during Friday's 106-95 victory over New Orleans.

    Adebayo picked up where he left off after four solid games before the All-Star break. The Heat have struggled to keep pace due to consistent injury issues, but Adebayo has shown remarkable consistency after a seven-game absence in December, averaging 19.3 points, 10.9 rebounds and 4.2 assists over 30 games since his return.

  • Heat's Tyler Herro: Tweaks left knee Friday

    Herro appeared to suffer a hyperextended left knee late in the fourth quarter of Friday's 106-95 win over the Pelicans, but he downplayed the injury after the contest, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports. "I think structurally everything was good," Herro said. "No major, even minor damage. I think everything is good. It kind of just scared me more than anything."

    With the Heat clinging to a seven-point lead, Herro checked out of the game with 1:40 remaining after he slipped on the court while dribbling. He immediately went down and grabbed at his knee after slipping and was helped back to the locker room, where he would remain for the rest of the contest. Fortunately for Herro, he seems optimistic that he avoided anything serious, and he'll have until Monday to rest up before the Heat return to action in Sacramento. Before departing, Herro contributed 15 points (6-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and one block across 31 minutes.

  • Heat's Thomas Bryant: Ejected Friday

    Bryant was ejected from Friday's game versus the Pelicans with 11:19 remaining in the fourth quarter.

    Bryant didn't touch the floor for Miami on Friday, but he got into it on the sidelines with Jose Alvarado. Punches were thrown by both players, so a suspension could be on the table. Bryant has been completely out of the rotation since January.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Gets ejected in return to action

    Butler (personal) recorded 23 points (7-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 8-12 FT), nine rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block across 27 minutes in Friday's game against the Pelicans before he was ejected with 11:19 remaining in the fourth quarter for getting into altercation with New Orleans' Naji Marshall.

    Butler had missed the Heat's final three games before the All-Star break while tending to a personal matter, but he returned to action Friday and was on his way to delivering an outstanding stat line prior to his ejection, aside from some uncharacteristically poor free-throw shooting on heavy volume. The ejection stemmed from Heat center Kevin Love grabbing the Pelicans' Zion Williamson to prevent a layup, after Williamson had stolen the ball from Butler. Williamson fell to the floor, resulting in Butler and Marshall getting into a tussle and receiving ejections while also sparking a melee that saw Heat center Thomas Bryant and Pelicans guard Jose Alvarado also being tossed from the contest. No punches were thrown in the altercation, so Butler isn't expected to face a suspension due to the ejection. Butler and the Heat will be back in action Monday in Sacramento.

  • Heat's Duncan Robinson: Back to bench

    Robinson will play a reserve role in Friday's game versus the Kings, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    With Jimmy Butler slated to return, Robinson will come off the bench. The sharpshooter has averaged 10.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 24.8 minutes in 31 games as a reserve this season.

  • Heat's Orlando Robinson: Out Friday

    Robinson (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pelicans, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Robinson was a late addition to the injury report with back spasms and will ultimately be sidelined. However, his absence shouldn't impact Miami's rotation.

  • Heat's Tyler Herro: Good to go against New Orleans

    Herro (foot) is available for Friday's gamme versus the Pelicans, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

  • Heat's Orlando Robinson: Added to injury report

    Robinson is questionable for Friday's game against the Pelicans due to lower back spasms, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Robinson wasn't on Miami's initial injury report for Friday's matchup, but it's now unclear whether he'll be able to suit up. However, his status shouldn't impact the rotation.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Set to play Friday

    Butler (personal) will be available for Friday's game versus the Pelicans, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Butler missed Miami's final three contests prior to the All-Star break following the death of a family member, but he's rejoined the Heat and will be ready to go as Miami opens its second-half schedule. Butler is averaging 21.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.8 steals in 34.1 minutes across his last 10 appearances.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Back at practice Thursday

    Butler (personal) participated in Thursday's practice session, Tim Reynolds of Associated Press reports.

    Butler was unavailable for Miami's final three games before the All-Star break due to the death of a family member, but he rejoined the Heat at practice Thursday. The team hasn't yet revealed his status for Friday's game against the Pelicans, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Butler available.

  • Heat's Terry Rozier: Won't play Friday

    Rozier (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against New Orleans, Tim Reynolds of Associated Press reports.

    Rozier was seen on the court without a brace on his sprained right knee during Thursday's practice session, but he'll be forced to miss Miami's first game following the All-Star break. He appears to be trending in the right direction and will travel with the Heat for their upcoming four-game road trip. His next chance to suit up will be Monday against Sacramento.
