George Hill ended up with 18 points over 34 minutes in Friday's win at Memphis, tying LeBron James for the team high in scoring.

Hill hit 5-of-11 from the field, and he was 7-of-8 from the free-throw line. Unlike James, however, Hill wasn't able to post a triple-double. In fact, he wasn't even close. He added just two rebounds, one assist and one steal, although his three blocked shots were certainly a nice bump for fantasy owners.

Nemanja Bjelica scored five points vs. the Rockets on Friday with four rebounds, three assists, three steals and one triple in 21 minutes.

Jimmy Butler left the game with a right knee injury, and while the severity won't be known until an MRI on Saturday, Bjelica will have to step up if Butler misses time. He did fare well in four previous fill-in starts this season, averaging 11.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.0 triples in 33.5 minutes. He's just a speculative pickup for now.

Goran Dragic scored 30 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

That makes it three 28-plus point games over his last four outings as his shooting percentages continue to climb excluding a couple duds. Dragic's elbow injury from last month is way behind him now and he should be busy as the Heat look to secure a playoff spot.

Jordan Clarkson (face) was able to return to Friday's game in Memphis and finish with 14 points over 20 minutes.

Clarkson suffered a right eye laceration in the first half and he needed stitches to close a gash. He was able to return and play a good chunk of the fourth quarter with the team well ahead and resting the starting five. It appears Clarkson should be fine for Sunday's nationally-televised game against the Spurs and then beyond.

Bam Adebayo scored six points with eight rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) still isn't healthy, so Adebayo has been picking up most of the backup center minutes. It will be a lot tougher for him to get minutes close to 20 when Olynyk is back and coach Erik Spoelstra hasn't really kept his word on playing him next to Hassan Whiteside -- partly due to the Olynyk injury. Bam is more of a 14-team guy with a somewhat capped upside.

LeBron James finished with 18 points, 14 rebounds, 11 assists and a steal over 37 minutes in Friday's 112-89 win at Memphis.

It was the 11th double-double of the season for The King, who has played in every game so far this season. "I just think being the leader of this team, I don't think he thinks he can take games off, because, you know, guys being hurt and going through a rough patch, and now new guys coming," Lue said. "So, I think he's trying to lead and lead by example. I think we still got to be smart about the situation, but (the training staff) says he feels good."

Wayne Ellington scored six points with three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

The minutes have still been decent for Ellington, but don't forget Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) coming back will mean the Heat offense won't need Ellington for spacing as much. Ellington is an OK hold as a specialist in standard leagues, but we'd expect him to trend down.
Feb 23 - 11:05 PM

James Johnson scored 12 points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

He benefitted from Justise Winslow getting two quick fouls against Anthony Davis, so that explains the uptick in run. We've been saying for a month now that Johnson needed the All-Star break more than just about anyone due to his lingering ankle issue, and it's so far, so good with this one. Maybe he's in for another strong finish this season.
