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. Feb 22 - 6:32 PM

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.

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."

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.

Josh McRoberts will "do all I can to make it back" from his meniscus surgery next week, and he won't know his timetable for a return until after the procedure.

We can only hope that McBob can return this season, as he was finally starting to figure it out in Miami before going down with the injury. If you have an IR spot available, he may be worth a stash in deeper leagues. However, unless we get a positive report after the surgery, owners in standard leagues should move on. Shawne Williams, Udonis Haslem, and Justin Hamilton will all benefit in his absence.

The Miami Heat will apply to the NBA for an injury exception to replace Josh McRoberts (knee surgery).

Under league rules, the Heat will receive a $2.65 million salary cap exception if McRoberts' torn meniscus is deemed season-ending by an independent NBA physician. It would be a surprise if the Heat aren't granted the exception, but for the meantime, Justin Hamilton, Shawne Williams, Chris Andersen, and Udonis Haslem will all see larger roles.

Josh McRoberts (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn right lateral meniscus, and he will be out indefinitely.

McBob will need surgery, and there's a possibility he'll be out for the season. It's a devastating blow for the Heat and continues the lost season for McRoberts after being signed in free agency. Without McBob, Shawne Williams, Udonis Haslem and possibly Justin Hamilton will be asked to play larger roles. The Heat are already facing the possibility of Chris Bosh (calf) missing several weeks as well.

Josh McRoberts (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Sunday.

Justin Hamilton, Udonis Haslem, and Shawne Williams will all be asked to step up with both McRoberts and Chris Bosh (calf) sidelined for Sunday's game, with Williams offering the most upside out of the group.

Josh McRoberts (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. Utah.

Justin Hamilton and Shawne Williams will see extended minutes with McRoberts sidelined, but Williams offers the most upside.

Josh McRoberts (knee) will not play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

He was limping before the game and really had no chance to play tonight. McRoberts was starting to get it going, so he should be worth owning in standard leagues once he is healthy again. Shawne Williams will get the start.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 09:03:00 PM

Josh McRoberts (knee) was limping before Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

He is questionable for tonight, but we'd probably consider him doubtful now. Shawne Williams has played almost 100 percent of his minutes at power forward and should be there tonight. Stay tuned.

Josh McRoberts (knee) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He has put together two nice games in a row so it would be a shame if he had to sit this one out. After coming down with an illness this week, McBob now has to deal with a contusion in his knee and owners will have to check back for official confirmation on his status. If he can't go, expect Shawne Williams to be the primary beneficiary.

Josh McRoberts (knee) played well for the second straight game on Tuesday, finishing with 10 points, seven assists, four rebounds, two 3-pointers and two steals in 33 minutes.

McRoberts bruised his right knee late in the game but said afterward, "It’s just a bruise. I’ll be alright." He's put together back-to-back solid games and his knee injury doesn't sound likely to keep him out of Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets. If he is available in your league, it's time to snag him since his only competition for minutes moving forward is Shawne Williams and Udonis Haslem.

Josh McRoberts (illness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

He had his best game of the season on Sunday, so owners in need of a big should give him a long look for his ability to contribute in several areas. Though McRoberts may not be at 100 percent Tuesday, he belongs in most lineups.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 07:33:00 PM

Josh McRoberts (illness) was shooting around a few hours prior to Tuesday's game and he appears probable to play vs. the Suns.

Owners should stay tuned for the final word, but early indications are that McRoberts will play even if he's less than 100 percent. If he ends up sitting out, Shawne Williams would be worth a look as a spot-starter.
