Mario Chalmers (illness) will play Thursday vs. the Bulls.
Chalmers has been simply awful lately, scoring in single digits in his previous four outings. He can be viewed as a steals and 3-point specialist in extremely deep leagues, but he should not be owned in standard formats. Apr 9 - 6:24 PM

Mario Chalmers (illness) is questionable to play against the Bulls on Thursday.

He only played nine minutes on Tuesday and maybe the illness was a factor. Chalmers had been playing minutes in the mid 20s, but he was coming off a 1-of-8 shooting line from Sunday. If he's out, Tyler Johnson should benefit most.
Apr 8 - 2:35 PM

Mario Chalmers (leg) vanished from the Heat rotation on Tuesday, going scoreless in only nine minutes off the bench.

He's been in a vicious shooting slump lately and the leg injury isn't helping matters, so coach Erik Spoelstra gave most of his bench minutes to James Ennis (26 minutes) and Tyler Johnson (25 minutes) while leaning heavily on starters Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade. The Heat have a razor-thin margin for error as they chase a playoff spot, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Chalmers limited again on Thursday. Plan accordingly.
Apr 7 - 10:37 PM

Mario Chalmers (leg) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. Charlotte.

Chalmers had a terrible game on Sunday (two points, one rebound, two assists, one steal, 1-of-8 shooting), and that came right after he openly admitted to questioning his role in Miami. You've got to be pretty desperate to be leaning on Rio right now, but the good news is Chalmers' team is equally as desperate.
Apr 6 - 1:53 PM

Mario Chalmers had a rough game on Sunday, committing five fouls in 27 minutes to finish with only two points on 1-of-8 shooting, one rebound, two assists and one steal.

He also racked up five fouls in 25 minutes on Saturday and is giving Miami's over-worked starters little relief, which is one reason Miami has fallen behind Boston for the East's final playoff spot. Despite his struggles, Chalmers remains a tolerable late-round fantasy option for owners seeking 3-pointers, assists and steals.
Apr 5 - 9:13 PM

Mario Chalmers said that he is unsure of his role on the Heat recently.

"I don’t even really know what my role is on this team anymore," Chalmers said. "I don’t know what I’m supposed to be doing." It's obviously been a frustrating season for the Heat mainly due to injuries, but it's understandable if Chalmers wants a more consistent role considering he is one of the few healthy players on the team. Head coach Erik Spoelstra opted to go with Tyler Johnson to start the second half vs. the Cavs after Dwyane Wade (knee) went down, but Chalmers still managed to finish with 26 minutes. Wade is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Pistons, meaning Chalmers would be in line for extra minutes if he can't give it a go.
Apr 4 - 9:42 AM

Mario Chalmers scored six points with two rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four turnovers in 26 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

With Dwyane Wade dealing with a bruised knee tonight and Shabazz Napier (hernia) out for the season, Chalmers has two avenues for minutes at both guard spots. He'll log about 14 minutes as the backup point guard and projects to get 15 minutes at shooting guard, too. He can add some production in steals, dimes and treys, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. That said, he would only be a speculative add until we get some clear info on Wade.
Apr 2 - 10:48 PM

Mario Chalmers scored 13 points against the Hawks on Friday with one rebound, five assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

Dwyane Wade is going to have his knee drained on Saturday, so he could miss some time. That would mean Chalmers would likely be thrust into the starting lineup for the Heat. He was a letdown in his last multiple-game stint as a starter, but maybe he'll have more success next to Goran Dragic. He's worth a look in standard leagues.
Mar 27 - 11:41 PM

Mario Chalmers will return to the bench for Friday's game vs. the Hawks with Dwyane Wade back in action.

Chalmers is averaging 10.2 points, 2.8 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game as a reserve, so his value takes a bit of a hit with the demotion to the second unit. He's not a great guy to play on such a busy Friday night.
Mar 27 - 6:44 PM

With Dwyane Wade (knee) not likely to play Friday vs. the Hawks, Mario Chalmers looks like he'll get another game with the starting unit.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hinted that he'll go with the same starting lineup from Wednesday which featured Goran Dragic, Mario Chalmers, Luol Deng, Henry Walker, and Udonis Haslem. Chalmers will see a boost in value as a starter, and he'll have a favorable matchup against the Hawks, so he's someone to consider in daily leagues.
Mar 27 - 12:46 PM

Mario Chalmers will start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He's going to get some serious minutes with the Heat missing more than half their team for back in October. With so much offense missing because of Dwyane Wade (knee) being out, Chalmers should have his biggest chance to produce since the break.
Mar 25 - 7:03 PM

Mario Chalmers scored 14 points with one 3-pointer, two assists and three steals in 27 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's crushing loss in Milwaukee.

Before the game Erik Spoelstra told reporters, "For the next month each game will have the feel of playoff intensity." The No. 7 seed Heat were facing the No. 6 seed Bucks tonight and they blew a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter, so there's sure to be some soul-searching during their flight to Boston. Chalmers hasn't been worth owning in 12-team leagues since Goran Dragic (16 points, six assists) took over the starting PG job.
Mar 24 - 11:01 PM

Mario Chalmers logged a team-high 34 minutes in Sunday's road loss, scoring 12 points with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals and four turnovers.

He helped pester Russell Westbrook into 5-of-16 shooting, though WB still racked up his 10th triple-double of the season. It wasn't all good for Chalmers, as he shot 4-of-14 from the field and didn't have any assists. His value has plummetted since Goran Dragic arrived in Miami and owners in 12-team leagues should leave him floating on the wire.
Mar 22 - 6:01 PM

Mario Chalmers scored 10 points on 2-of-4 shooting (6-of-7 FTs) with four rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Chalmers is providing some surprising late-round value over the past week or two, but he's 55 percent of his shots over the last seven games and when that straightens itself out he might not even be a 14-team play. Plan accordingly.
Mar 21 - 1:31 AM

Mario Chalmers made a start at point guard on Monday against the Celtics with 12 points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

Most importantly, Mario had a few matchups against Luigi Datome. Kidding aside, Chalmers might stick in the starting lineup as long as Goran Dragic (back) is out. However, he's going to be in direct competition with Tyler Johnson for minutes next to Wade and Dragic when the team is healthy. Most fantasy owners can leave Mario on the wire until this situation clears up.
