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.

Remember when McBob was once seen as the crucial cog that would keep LeBron in Miami? Good times.
Oct 15 - 6:04 PM

Josh McRoberts (left foot) is listed as "out" for Friday's preseason game against the Spurs.

McRoberts continues to rehab from the stress reaction in his left foot, and it's unclear if he'll be ready for opening night. You'd have to be in an insanely deep league to even consider drafting McBob.
Oct 13 - 4:33 PM

Josh McRoberts (foot) will not play on Tuesday.

He has been limited in practice and doesn't have a timetable to return. The Heat will get longer looks at Derrick Williams and James Johnson at the four. McRoberts can be ignored in most fantasy leagues.

Josh McRoberts (left foot) was limited during Thursday's practice.

McRoberts is recovering from a stress reaction in his left foot and remains without an official timetable to return. He could be Miami's starting power forward once healthy, but health seems to be a constant issue with McBob. If he's not ready to go by opening night, it'll be Luke Babbitt, Derrick Williams, James Johnson and Udonis Haslem picking up the slack.

Josh McRoberts (left foot) won't play vs. the Timberwolves on Saturday.

Luke Babbitt fared well as a first-half starter in Miami's previous exhibition, with James Johnson taking over at PF in the second half. Derrick Williams and Udonis Haslem will also help fill the void while McRoberts recovers from a stress reaction. His return date is uncertain.
Oct 5 - 10:26 PM

Josh McRoberts (foot) will not play vs. the Wizards on Tuesday.

He's still dealing with a stress reaction in his left foot, so he's probably going to be out for a while. With Chris Bosh's Heat career expected to be over, there will be an interesting battle for playing time between Derrick Williams, James Johnson, Udonis Haslem and Luke Babbitt.
Oct 3 - 12:56 PM

Josh McRoberts revealed on Wednesday that he's dealing with a stress reaction in his left foot stemming from a fracture he sustained during Game 6 of Miami's second-round series against Toronto.

The Heat have a massive hole to fill at the power forward position with Chris Bosh's (blood clots) tenure in Miami likely reaching its conclusion, but as per usual, the injured McRoberts won't be able to help much. Once he is healthy, he'll be competing for minutes with the likes of Derrick Williams, James Johnson, Justise Winslow and Udonis Haslem, so it'll be tough for him to see the floor enough to make a difference in standard settings.

Josh McRoberts was limited at the opening day of camp due to a foot injury.

The guy just can't seem to stay healthy. The Heat have a huge hole at power forward due to the uncertainty around Chris Bosh, but McRoberts isn't off to a great start. For now, Derrick Williams, James Johnson, Udonis Haslem and Luke Babbitt will compete for minutes at the four, while Justise Winslow should spend some time there as well.

Josh McRoberts said he'll need to take more of a leadership role with the Heat this season.

With Dwyane Wade in Chicago and Chris Bosh's health a question mark, McRoberts will be one of the more tenured players on Miami's roster this season. "I need to step in, be more vocal, be a leader," he said. "We still got UD [Udonis Haslem], we got Beno (Udrih), Josh McRoberts. We still got some experienced guys that I think is a good mix with the young guys." While McRoberts doesn't have the highest upside, he should see plenty of minutes while Bosh is out and is worth a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues.
Sep 27 - 10:59 AM

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).
