Chris Bosh said Josh McRoberts is "like a big point guard."
Part of the reason the Heat brought McBobs on is because of his 4.3 dimes per game from the 2013-14 season. McRoberts, Bosh and Hassan Whiteside should soak up a ton of minutes in the frontcourt. He's only worth a late-round pick in deeper leagues, though. Sep 30 - 3:34 PM

Josh McRoberts (knee) went through a full practice with the Heat on Tuesday, without limitations.

McRoberts should be fine for the regular-season after spending all but 17 games on the sidelines last year. However, with Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside the likely starters in Miami, it could be tough for McBob to earn enough minutes to produce in standard leagues.

The Heat will be cautious with Josh McRoberts (knee) in training camp.

Although McBob has been cleared for camp, the Heat will still take a conservative approach after he missed most of his inaugural season in Miami. Likely to be brought along slowly and have his minutes managed well into the regular season, McRoberts has little fantasy appeal at this time.

Josh McRoberts (knee) has been cleared for training camp.

"I’ve been encouraged by his summer," said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra of McRoberts. "Stronger than he’s ever been. He’s cleared, but we will be judicious." McRoberts only managed to play in 17 games for the Heat during his first year in Miami, compiling forgettable averages of 4.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. He'll likely be brought along slowly this season, playing limited minutes behind Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside, so there's no reason to target McBob in almost any format.

Josh McRoberts said that his knee is doing well.

"Medically I’m in a good spot and I’m especially excited with our new additions," McRoberts said. This is obviously great news, and it should be noted that he said he was close to 100 percent just a couple of weeks ago. McRoberts will be ready in time for training camp, and he figures to be the first big off the bench this season behind Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside.

Josh McRoberts (knee) said that he is close to 100 percent and is expecting to be ready in time for training camp.

"I don't think I'm ever going to see 100 percent," McRoberts said jokingly. "I've played too long to be 100 percent, but I'm getting pretty close. I've had a great summer here rehabbing with St. Vincent and think I'll be ready to go. I can't wait for the season to get going. I'm just trying to rehab and get back here for the start of camp. I'm excited to get back on the court and do what I love to do." McRoberts could be the first big off the bench for Miami behind Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside, so he is worth a look in deeper leagues for his solid all-around game.

The Heat are not shopping Josh McRoberts or Chris Andersen on the trade market.

Miami is going to need both behind Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside this season and neither should be moved unless another team overwhelms Pat Riley. Considering the subjects we're discussing, that's very unlikely.
Jul 20 - 9:57 AM

Josh McRoberts (knee) said that he is not expecting to return to action at any point this season.

McRoberts has been progressing well, but it's a shame that he won't be able to play if the Heat advance to the playoffs. We will monitor his status closely in the offseason, but it's safe to drop him in all re-draft leagues.
Apr 4 - 11:56 AM

Josh McRoberts (knee) still isn't working with Miami's coaches and he remains out indefinitely.

McRoberts is traveling with the Heat to work with the team's training staff, but it doesn't sound like he's close to resuming on-court work. A return during the playoffs is feasible but fantasy owners can't expect any production in Miami's final nine regular-season games.
Mar 29 - 5:08 PM

Josh McRoberts (knee) may travel with the Heat on their upcoming four-game road trip, but that doesn't mean he will return anytime soon.

McRoberts remains without a timetable to return, but this is a good sign and he is said to be progressing well from knee surgery. However, there is no guarantee that we will see McRoberts back on the court this season and the Heat will likely proceed with caution, so there is no need to own him outside of the deepest of leagues. As always, we will provide an update on his status when we know more.
Mar 21 - 2:05 PM

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said that Josh McRoberts has been progressing well in his recovery from knee surgery.

McRoberts has been working out twice a day with trainers, and there remains a possibility that he will be able to return to the court at some point this season. However, if McBob is able to return, he'll likely be brought along very slowly, and with just 15 games remaining for Miami, he's very unlikely to become a factor in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 20 - 6:13 PM

There is reportedly a chance that Josh McRoberts (knee) could return before the end of the regular season.

Talk about a comeback. McBob was supposed to be sidelined for the entire season after having meniscus surgery in December, but there are now whispers that the Heat are cautiously optimistic about a potential return for the versatile power forward. With Chris Bosh ruled out for the season, the Heat could definitely use McRobert's services so we will definitely be tracking this story very closely.

Josh McRoberts (knee) is off of crutches.

He joked that he could give Miami eight minutes of playing time tonight, but he is almost certainly out for the season. McRoberts should be ready for the start of the 2015-16 season.
Feb 21 - 6:20 PM

Pat Riley denied that the Heat offered Josh McRoberts (knee surgery) to the Nets in a package for Brook Lopez.

Riley told reporters that he hasn't "offered anyone to anybody," though he's been engaged in undisclosed trade talks. "There’s a lot of conversation but we’re not active," Riley said. "We’re not about to give up assets that we don’t have, that we need, to make a lateral move out of desperation ... If it’s a player to take us into the future, we’ll think about it. It’s fluid."
Jan 23 - 9:28 AM

The Miami Heat announced that Josh McRoberts had a successful knee surgery and is likely to miss the rest of the 2014-15 season.

The Heat have already applied for an injury exception and have also been rumored to be interested in signing Josh Smith. We'll update McBob's condition as more news becomes available, but he can safely be dropped in standard leagues while Shawne Williams, Udonis Haslem, and Justin Hamilton will also see a small boost in fantasy value.
