Heat waive G Beno Udrih (foot).
It's an interesting move to get the Heat below the luxury tax line. Udrih is out for the season and won't be picked up by another team, so he's leaving money on the table here. Feb 29 - 4:41 PM

Beno Udrih and the Heat are nearing agreement on a contract buyout, sources told The Vertical.

Although Udrih is out for the season, buying him out would have luxury tax implications for Miami. With Joe Johnson already aboard, the Heat are also considering adding Marcus Thornton and/or a third point guard, so opening a roster spot via Udrih's departure could be a step in that direction.

Beno Udrih (foot) underwent successful surgery on Friday and has been given a 3-month timetable.

He has said that he wants to beat his timetable, but his season is all but over. With Udrih out of the picture, the Heat will turn to Josh Richardson as their backup point guard unless they sign a free agent.
Feb 26 - 12:28 PM

Beno Udrih is set to undergo surgery for a torn plantar plate in his right foot and he is expected to miss the next three months of action.

Udrih will miss the remainder of the 2015-16 season, and Miami could cut him in order to add another guy to the roster whilst remaining under the luxury tax threshold. Udrih should be good to go next season, but he's nothing more than a backup point guard and is not a fantasy option in most leagues. Until Miami adds another player, Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade will be getting some heavy minutes for the Heat, with Josh Richardson serving as Dragic's primary backup.

Beno Udrih will undergo season-ending surgery on his right foot.

Tyler Johnson (shoulder) may not be able to return for the regular season, so rookie Josh Richardson may have to take over as the backup PG behind Goran Dragic. Udrih was only averaging 4.4 points and 2.5 assists this season, so this won't have too many fantasy implications. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Beno Udrih (left foot) will not suit up for Wednesday's game vs. the Warriors.

Josh Richardson will have the opportunity for some extended run in Udrih's absence, but he's not a viable target in almost any league. Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic will likely see their minutes in the high-30s with both of the backup point guards in Miami unavailable, so those guys will be in play as potential DFS targets Wednesday night.

Beno Udrih (foot) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Warriors.

Udrih exited Monday's game with a left foot injury, and while X-rays came back negative, we still don't have the results of the MRI. Udrih isn't worth owning in any setting while Goran Dragic is healthy, but his absence will lead to some more run for Josh Richardson, who also is a non-factor in fantasy hoops.

Beno Udrih (left foot) will have an MRI on his injured foot on Tuesday.

X-rays on Udrih's left foot came back negative, but we'll now more after the results of his MRI come back. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but Josh Richardson will likely see some extra minutes if Udrih misses any time.
Feb 23 - 1:13 PM

Beno Udrih (left foot injury) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

X-rays came back negative, but the extent of the injury is not known. If Udrih does need to miss time, Josh Richardson will likely soak up his minutes.
Feb 22 - 9:02 PM

Beno Udrih played 30 minutes and hit 4-of-6 shots for nine points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's win.

Goran Dragic appears to be close to returning from his calf injury, but until it happens, Udrih is a decent fantasy option if you need a starting point guard.
Jan 26 - 10:38 PM

Beno Udrih started against the Bulls on Monday with three points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer.

Goran Dragic (calf) may come back this week, so Udrih only has short-term value. He's not a high-usage guy and doesn't really rack up the other stats, so he's only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Jan 26 - 12:45 AM

Beno Udrih (neck) will start against the Bulls on Monday.

It'll push Tyler Johnson back to the bench. Udrih did play 33.0 minutes per game in his previous three starts, but expect him to be a tad under 30 in his first game back tonight.
Jan 25 - 7:05 PM

Beno Udrih (neck) is probable to play on Monday vs. Chicago.

It was reported that Udrih was expected to play on Sunday, and this news confirms that the veteran point guard will be out there. He should draw the start with Goran Dragic (calf) still out and Tyler Johnson ineffective in the role.
Jan 25 - 12:45 PM

Beno Udrih (neck) is expected to play against the Bulls on Monday.

He was close to playing on Friday, but has missed the last four games. Udrih will probably wind up starting with Goran Dragic (calf) not close, but Tyler Johnson still looks like the better player to own. Udrih is only worth a look in deep leagues. For what it's worth, he is listed as questionable.
Jan 23 - 4:45 PM

Beno Udrih (neck) will not play against the Raptors on Friday.

It'll be Tyler Johnson in the starting lineup with Josh Richardson backing him up. Udrih isn't worth stashing in almost any league.
