Josh McRoberts stole the ball three times on Sunday, while scoring five points with three rebounds and three assists in 19 minutes.
He threw down a nice dunk in the second half and is starting to find a rhythm, though his fantasy value is still limited by a reserve role -- he's yet to play more than 20 minutes in a game this season. Owners should watch him from a distance in typical leagues. Nov 8 - 8:50 PM

Josh McRoberts finally decided to engage in the offense on Friday against the Pacers, scoring eight points on 3-of-4 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds and five assists in 17 minutes off the bench.

The Miami media is very high on what McRoberts can bring to the table but he is incredibly reluctant to shoot and he is being brought back from his knee surgery very slowly. He's nowhere near the standard league radar but if he starts stringing good games together he'll have a shot at some low-end value.
Nov 7 - 12:37 AM

Josh McRoberts played just 13 minutes in Friday's loss to the Cavs, finishing with two points on 1-of-2 shooting, two boards and one assist.

McRoberts had a lot of hype from the local papers but then he started missing preseason games and we haven't seen anything worthwhile since. Until he can start logging north of 25 minutes, he's an afterthought in 12-14 team leagues.
Oct 30 - 11:14 PM

Josh McRoberts played just 13 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday with no points, three rebounds and two assists.

Even with Amare Stoudemire (rest) out, McRoberts still saw limited playing time. The team will likely manage his minutes after missing so much time last season.

Josh McRoberts (right knee surgery) said the plan is for him to be a part of everything this season.

"I'm not really comparing myself to Amare Stoudemire," McRoberts said. "For me, I think it's just a day-by-day thing. Not to be a cliche answer. I think it truly is each day we kind of see where its at, see what the training staff has for me. But my plan is to be a part of everything. I think I turned the corner already. I think we're being cautious and trying to prepare for a long season. But I think I'm ready to go." McRoberts will be in the rotation against the Hornets on Wednesday, but owners should keep in mind that his minutes will likely be low in the early going.

Josh McRoberts (right knee surgery) said the extra rest he's received "ain't really my choice."

"I’ve been out since last December, so they’re just being cautious about not overdoing it in the preseason. We’re trying to put together a plan to be ready for the regular season," McRoberts said. The Heat are known for their maintenance plans when it comes to injuries, so expect McBob to continue to be brought along slowly.
Oct 19 - 9:32 AM

Josh McRoberts (knee) looked good in limited action vs. the Hawks, though he finished scoreless in seven minutes.

McRoberts had two rebounds and one nifty assist, and he could emerge as the focal point of Miami's second unit -- Chris Bosh even called McRoberts a "big point guard" earlier this preseason. Unfortunately, a lengthy injury history make McBob a tough sell in standard leagues.
Oct 18 - 9:34 PM

Josh McRoberts (knee) is active for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.

The Heat have been cautious with him during the preseason as expected, but it's important for him to get some more reps with the season rapidly approaching. McRoberts will be a key part of the second unit, but he won't be more than a deep league asset.
Oct 18 - 6:58 PM

Josh McRoberts (knee) will not play vs. the Rockets on Saturday.

The Heat are going to monitor McRobert's workload early on, so he could have some restrictions right out of the gate. He will be a huge part of the Heat's second unit this season, but he is only worth a look in deeper leagues while Chris Bosh is active.
Oct 17 - 1:08 PM

Josh McRoberts (knee) was limited in practice on Friday.

He is just having his minutes monitored due to missing almost the entire season last year. McRoberts has flourished during his brief playing time and has made Miami's interior passing shine. Still, he's only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Oct 16 - 2:50 PM

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said Josh McRoberts (knee) will be on a pitch count during the preseason.

This isn't a huge surprise as McRoberts attempts to come back from surgery on his right knee. McRoberts should be ready for the regular season, but he's likely to come off the bench for the Heat and is nothing more than a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 15 - 11:50 AM

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said that he expects Josh McRoberts (knee) to play Saturday vs. the Rockets.

Spoelstra did not seem concerned at all about McRoberts experiencing soreness in his surgically repaired right knee, and it looks like the past two days off have been nothing more than precautionary rest. McBob will likely come off the bench this season, so at best, he can't be viewed as anything more than a low-end asset in deep leagues.
Oct 14 - 9:21 AM

Josh McRoberts (knee) will not play on Tuesday against the Magic.

He has general minor knee soreness and it is not serious. McRoberts also sat out on Monday, so the Heat want to be careful after he suffered a season-ending knee injury last year.
Oct 13 - 1:22 AM

Josh McRoberts (rest) will not play on Monday.

The Heat get the Spurs tonight and the Magic tomorrow. McRoberts should be a go against one of his former teams. He may have some low-end value in deep leagues.
Oct 12 - 5:55 PM

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.
