Josh McRoberts started at PF for the Heat on Wednesday, finishing with one point, three rebounds, three assists, one block and one turnover in 16 minutes.
McRoberts missed all four of his shots and he was the only Heat player to post a negative plus-minus rating during tonight's road win. Miami is also likely to get some healthy players back in the near future, including Justise Winslow, so there's no reason to grab McBob in standard leagues. Dec 1 - 12:49 AM

Date:

Goran Dragic, Rodney McGruder, Luke Babbitt, Josh McRoberts and Hassan Whiteside will start against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

It's another new lineup for the Heat, who look to be without Josh Richardson (ankle) for this one. McRoberts likely won't play too much after playing just seven minutes on Monday. He's not a reliable fantasy option in most leagues.
Nov 30 - 8:25 PM

Josh McRoberts scored four points with one assist and one turnover in 13 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

While he did get out there for this game, we still want him in the NBA Skills Challenge for his inbounds passing. Leave McRoberts on the wire.
Nov 13 - 12:10 AM

Josh McRoberts (foot) is available to play against the Jazz on Saturday.

He's been limited to just inbounds passing, but the Heat are going to need some help. Obviously you can't trust McRoberts in fantasy right now.
Nov 12 - 6:25 PM

Josh McRoberts (foot) is limited to his inbounds pass role for Friday.

Can we get McRoberts in the NBA Skills Challenge please?
Nov 4 - 6:10 PM

Josh McRoberts (foot) is questionable for Friday's game against the Raptors.

McRoberts participated in contact drills on Thursday, so Friday looks like a possibility for the big man. McBob will return to a crowded Heat frontcourt and won't have much fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.
Nov 3 - 12:43 PM

Josh McRoberts (foot) did not play on Sunday.

McBob is recovering from a lingering stress reaction in his left foot -- he's been cleared for contact and isn't on Miami's injury report, but the team is playing it very safe to avoid a setback.
Oct 30 - 9:09 PM

Josh McRoberts is not available to play on Friday vs. the Hornets.

Oddly, McRoberts is no longer listed on Miami's injury report. However, Coach Spoelstra told reporters McRoberts would not be available on Friday. It appeared McRoberts would play on Wednesday, after looking healthy in pregame warmups, but he received a DNP-coach's decision. We will await further word on McRobert's situation.
Oct 28 - 12:10 PM

Josh McRoberts (foot) is not on the injury report for Friday's game.

He's been a mystery for about an entire year due to his troublesome foot. McRoberts went through pregame warmups on Wednesday and was in good spirits, so he could be available for this game. He will likely be logging most of his minutes at center, which could hurt Willie Reed's playing time.
Oct 27 - 3:48 PM

Josh McRoberts (foot) did not play in Miami's season opener on Wednesday.

The veteran was listed as questionable and he was reportedly in good spirits after pre-game warmups, but the Heat opted to hold him out again. When he does return, he'll be in the middle of a crowded rotation that includes Luke Babbitt, James Johnson, Derrick Williams and Willie Reed.
Oct 26 - 10:28 PM

Josh McRoberts (foot) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Magic.

McRoberts has been cleared for contact, so there's a chance he could get on the floor for limited minutes Wednesday night. He's not a fantasy option anywhere, though.
Oct 26 - 10:04 AM

Josh McRoberts (left foot) has been cleared for contact, and hopes to make it back to the court "sooner rather than later."

Additionally, McRoberts said he's spent most his time at the five-spot during Heat practices, so it sounds like Erik Spoelstra envisions McBob operating as Hassan Whiteside's primary backup. It's unlikely that McRoberts will be able to see much more than 20 minutes a night in a reserve role, and he's still without an official timetable to return, so there's no reason to draft him anywhere.
Oct 24 - 1:11 PM

Josh McRoberts (foot) will not play on Friday.

The Heat are in no rush to bring him back. McRoberts has no timetable to return.
Oct 21 - 6:21 PM

Josh McRoberts (left foot) will miss Thursday's game against the Hornets.

McRoberts has no set timetable for his return and has no fantasy value in standard fantasy leagues at the moment.
Oct 20 - 10:42 AM

Josh McRoberts (stress reaction in left foot) will not play vs. the Magic on Tuesday.

The oft-injured forward has no set timetable for a return and has no fantasy value.
