Mario Chalmers got 33 minutes off the Heat bench on Wednesday, but hit just 2-of-10 shots and 1-of-8 3-pointers for eight points and one assist.
Yuck. The minutes were nice, but it's going to be very tough for him to do much as long as Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic are healthy. Feb 25 - 10:33 PM

Mario Chalmers scored 20 points off the bench against the Pelicans on Saturday with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He was fantastic in his new role off the bench to start the game, but he started the second half. Chalmers did get some playing time in the fourth quarter, but amazingly he didn't score any points in garbage time. He has been wildly inconsistent and we would love to see it again, so leave him on the wire unless you need steals and treys badly.

Mario Chalmers started the second half against the Pelicans, with Udonis Haslem shifting to the bench.

The Pelicans lost Anthony Davis (shoulder) and Ryan Anderson (knee) for the game, so the Heat opted to go with a smaller lineup to better matchup with New Orleans. Even if Chalmers continues to come off the bench in the future, he should be able to chip in enough points, assists, steals and 3-pointers to be worth holding onto in most leagues. Haslem, on the other hand, isn't a reliable fantasy asset in almost any league.
Feb 21 - 9:06 PM

Mario Chalmers picked up an NBA season-high eight steals against the Knicks on Friday with 13 points, seven assists, six rebounds and one 3-pointer.

It was a nice finale for Chalmers because his starting job is gone with Goran Dragic set to take over. Chalmers will lose playing time and is not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 21 - 2:23 AM

Mario Chalmers had a decent game against the Cavs during a 113-93 loss on Wednesday with 18 points, two rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He had 18 points on Monday and is entering the break with some momentum. Chalmers' usage is a tad higher while he's playing without Dwyane Wade (hamstring) but he might cool off with Wade ready to roll after the break. He's not a must-own player, but he has a decent ceiling.
Feb 12 - 12:35 AM

Mario Chalmers scored 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, six assists and three steals in Monday's win.

Chalmers has frustrated owners because of all the wasted opportunity and at the same time this is the upside everybody has been hoping for. It's anybody's guess if he can walk through the door, but at least he's knocking at it after tonight. Give him a hard look.
Feb 10 - 12:43 AM

Mario Chalmers (shin) hit just 2-of-8 shots (including a three) for seven points, one rebound, four assists and two steals in 25 minutes on Friday against the Spurs.

Chalmers might get some benefit of the doubt for the shin injury if he hadn't been struggling for a while. A lack of aggression has plagued his output and from what we hear this is more a confidence issue than anything physical, which means if he can get over whatever is holding him back he could still have some upside. If you already moved on we wouldn't blame you, though.
Feb 7 - 4:09 AM

Mario Chalmers (shin) will play against the Spurs on Friday.

He just has a minor shin injury and it shouldn't affect him much. Chalmers finally played a little better on Wednesday, but he's still a risky player to use in standard leagues.
Feb 6 - 8:09 PM

Mario Chalmers (shin) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Friday.

He wasn't able to participate in the morning shootaround, so his owners should go ahead and have a backup plan ready. If Chalmers is unable to go, Norris Cole, Shabazz Napier and Tyler Johnson will all see an uptick in minutes, but they are too unreliable to use outside of deeper leagues. Mario Chalmers has been terrible for the Heat despite the absence of Dwyane Wade (hamstring), and with averages of just 9.6 points, 5.2 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.0 steal over his last five games, owners should consider leaving him on the bench until he turns things around.

Mario Chalmers played better against the Wolves on Wednesday with 12 points, three rebounds, five assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

He had just one point on Tuesday and has struggled in a big way recently. Before tonight, Chalmers made just 35 percent from the field since Christmas. He is probably going to climb into the standard league conversation soon, but there's no need to run and grab him until he's a little better.
Feb 4 - 11:58 PM

Mario Chalmers was held to just one point on Tuesday against the Pistons, adding five assists and two boards in 28 minutes.

Fresh off a 4-point game on Sunday, Chalmers' struggles continued as he missed his only two attempts from the field. The Heat have struggled to get any kind of reliable production from their point guards recently, and that trend continued with Shabazz Napier going scoreless in 15 minutes while Norris Cole scored just two points off the bench. Chalmers is still the guard to own with Dwyane Wade (hamstring) on the sidelines, but owners should probably leave him on the bench until he turns things around.
Feb 3 - 10:44 PM

Mario Chalmers was unimpressive in 26 minutes on Sunday, scoring four points on 1-of-4 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and five turnovers.

Chalmers is now a combined 4-of-15 from the field over his last two outings. To make matters worse, he didn't hit a single 3-pointer on Sunday and was just 2-of-4 from the charity stripe. He's also committed a total of 10 turnovers over the last two, and to say he's slumping would be a bit of an understatement. He'll still have plenty of opportunities as long as Dwyane Wade (hamstring) is sidelined, but his ceiling is late-round value in standard leagues.
Feb 1 - 4:28 PM

Mario Chalmers scored 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, six assists and one steal in Friday's loss to the Mavs.

Chalmers had a big game on Tuesday and with the Heat's core group suffering from injuries he should be owned across the board.
Jan 31 - 2:06 AM

Mario Chalmers' upward trend continued on Tuesday with 21 points on 6-of-9 FGs and 8-of-12 FTs, one 3-pointer, two rebounds, eight assists, one block and only one turnover.

He's shooting just 40.2 percent this season but is knocking down 50.0 percent of his attempts over the past five games, and continues to hold off Shabazz Napier and Norris Cole for the starting PG job. Dwyane Wade suffered yet another hamstring injury on Tuesday, which should ensure Chalmers a bigger role for any games Wade misses, so don't hesitate to pluck him off the waiver wire.
Jan 27 - 10:23 PM

Mario Chalmers finally got things back on track on Sunday, putting up 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting to go with five assists, four rebounds, two steals, and three turnovers over 40 minutes of action.

Chalmers also hit one 3-pointer and was a perfect 4-of-4 from the stripe, but it's worth noting that Norris Cole did not even step on the court today. Hopefully Chalmers will get things going after today's outing, and he's worth a look if he was dropped in your league after a month-long cold streak.
