The Heat reportedly told Josh McRoberts' camp that he is "in the team's plans for this season."
The 29-year-old forward didn't draw any interest as a trade option earlier this summer -- he's owed a guaranteed $5.8 million this year with a $6.0 million player option for 2017-18. It's uncertain whether Chris Bosh (blood clots) will be cleared to play this season, however, which leaves McRoberts with a path to fantasy relevance in Miami. Aug 25 - 1:10 AM

Miami reporter Ira Winderman said the Heat "quite literally could not even give [Josh] McRoberts away."

The Heat tried to get his contract off the books in order to have more cap space to spend on Dwyane Wade, but were unable to find any suitors. McRoberts has two more years left on his deal, but the Heat will be hoping that he declines his player option for the 2017-18 season. McRoberts' role next season hinges on the health of Chris Bosh (blood clots).

The Heat "apparently might not be able to move" Josh McRoberts to clear cap space for Dwyane Wade unless a draft pick or Justise Winslow is included, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.

Say what? The Heat might be working the leverage back on their side here, but it's certainly interesting. For Wade to get the money he wants, the Heat will have to get McRoberts off their books. He met with the Bucks, Nuggets and Heat today while the Bulls are in contention. This is getting interesting.

The Miami Heat are exploring a trade of Josh McRoberts, according to Ethan Skolnick of the Miami Herald.

The McBob Experiment hasn't gone as well in Miami as it did in Charlotte and Skolnick reports the Heat have been looking to move McRoberts and may need to attach a pick from a third team to facilitate a deal. While McRoberts is still just 29 years old, he won't be much of a 2016-17 fantasy option outside of deeper leagues.
Jun 30 - 10:42 AM

Josh McRoberts was the only Heat reserve to score double-digit points on Sunday, posting 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting with one rebound and one assist.

McRoberts looked for his shot, unusually, and the second unit held its ground with solid play from Josh Richardson (28 minutes) and Tyler Johnson (21 minutes). Miami's starters couldn't stop the Raptors' offense, however, thanks in large part to a whopping 20 offensive boards for Toronto. McRoberts is one of just four Heat players with a guaranteed contract for 2016-17, joining Goran Dragic, Chris Bosh and Justise Winslow.
May 15 - 7:19 PM

Josh McRoberts started the second half of Game 5 in place of Amare Stoudemire, posting six points, three boards and one steal in 18 minutes.

The Heat failed to combat the Raptors with size in the first few quarters, so McRoberts got the nod after halftime in an extra-small lineup. McRoberts could find himself starting Game 6 on Friday, giving him added cache as a DFS punt play.
May 11 - 10:59 PM

Josh McRoberts started the second half of Wednesday's Game 5 ahead of Amare Stoudemire.

Stoudemire was ineffective in the first half and Erik Spoelstra opted for an even smaller lineup with his team facing a double-digit deficit. Check back after the game to see how McBob fared.
May 11 - 9:33 PM

Josh McRoberts scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 21 minutes against the Raptors.

He was a stretch five for most of his minutes out there. McRoberts really won't be doing much scoring while he's out there and the offense didn't go through him much either. He's really just a tourney punt on DFS.
May 9 - 11:43 PM

Josh McRoberts played 13 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday with four points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block.

He had some early success against Jonas Valanciunas (ankle), but coach Erik Spoelstra went with more of Udonis Haslem later in the game. If Hassan Whiteside (knee) can't play, McRoberts likely would be looking at 15-20 minutes in the second unit in Game 4. His DFS upside is a little better than Haslem for per-minute value.
May 7 - 7:52 PM

Josh McRoberts played a postseason-high 16 minutes during Game 5, but he failed to score and had just three rebounds, two steals and one assist to his credit.

McBob never looks to score and he passed up some open looks tonight, resulting in empty possessions that can't sit well with coach Erik Spoelstra. He finished 0-of-2 from the field and is a longshot to have DFS appeal in the postseason.
Apr 27 - 10:55 PM

Josh McRoberts made a fill-in start for Luol Deng (knee) on Wednesday, posting nine points, three rebounds and three assists in a road loss vs. the Spurs.

McBob shot 4-of-7 from the field in 30 minutes. He's barely part of the rotation these days, however, and with Deng day-to-day there's no incentive to pick him up. Among the many reasons to avoid him is a paltry usage rate of 14.5 percent, similar to guys like Xavier Munford, Marcelo Huertas and Chase Budinger.
Mar 24 - 12:20 AM

Josh McRoberts (thigh) will start on Wednesday in place of Luol Deng (thigh).

He's really the only other true power forward on the roster. McRoberts could play minutes close to 20 tonight but he's risky to start in most leagues.
Mar 23 - 7:50 PM

Josh McRoberts scored two points with two rebounds, three assists and no turnovers in 13 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

While the Heat are not expecting Chris Bosh back, McRoberts just can't get enough minutes. The Heat continue to use smaller lineups next to Hassan Whiteside, so McRoberts is only worth a scoop in very deep leagues.
Feb 27 - 5:24 PM

Josh McRoberts scored three points on 1-of-6 shooting on Saturday vs. the Wizards with three boards and three assists in 19 minutes.

He played better than the box score indicated, but he predictably fell back to earth after coming off a massive performance (19 points, 10 assists, six boards, three 3-pointers) against the Hawks on Friday. Tonight's game confirms that McRoberts is only an option in deeper leagues even with Chris Bosh (blood clots) on the shelf.
Feb 20 - 11:19 PM

Josh McRoberts exploded out of nowhere against the Hawks on Friday with 19 points, six rebounds, 10 assists and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Wow. That's season highs in points, dimes, and 3-pointers. The Heat were extremely shorthanded tonight and McRoberts has played a combined 24 minutes in his previous games this month. He could benefit from Chris Bosh (blood clots) missing time, but he's only worth a look if you have something to cut. Another positive outing on Saturday would make him a much stronger pickup.
