Henry Walker (ankle) said that he likely won't play in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Walker wasn't able to play at all in Orlando so this doesn't bode well for his chances of cracking the rotation next season. We will keep an eye on his ankle, but it's safe to ignore Walker in fantasy leagues next season until further notice.
Jul 12 - 1:49 PM

Henry Walker (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He hasn't played at all in summer league due to his ankle sprain from last week. Walker is going to have a much tougher time getting minutes with the Heat having their players back from injuries.
Jul 8 - 4:52 PM

Henry Walker (ankle) will not play against the Pistons on Monday.

There was no clear info on when Walker hurt his ankle, but it doesn't sound serious and he could play on Wednesday. He will need to play extremely well in training camp to get minutes.
Jul 6 - 5:05 PM

Henry Walker (ankle) will miss Sunday's game as a precaution.

Heat assistant Dan Craig said that Walker is day-to-day and the injury shouldn't have any lingering effects once he gets back on the court. With Luol Deng opting to stay in Miami next season there's no reason to monitor Walker this offseason.
Jul 5 - 4:55 PM

Henry Walker wasn't available to play for the Heat on Saturday due to an ankle issue.

The Heat are generally pretty cautious with their players, so they obviously aren't going to risk anything in summer league. It isn't clear how serious the ankle issue is, but we will update Walker's status when we know more. To be clear, Walker doesn't project to be in the rotation on opening night.
Jul 4 - 11:41 AM

Henry Walker scored 21 points against the 76ers on Wednesday with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and six 3-pointers in 48 minutes.

His 21 points were a season high and he hit a very clutch 3-pointer to help Miami get the win. Luckily for them, the Nets were able to get the win tonight, so he didn't have the most costly make for a team in NBA lottery history. To elaborate, if the Nets had lost and Miami lost a coin toss for the 10th position in the lottery, their chances of keeping their top-10 protected pick would have gone way down. Walker won't be worth drafting in any league next year.
Apr 15 - 11:21 PM

Henry Walker (elbow) will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

He received a shot to relieve the pain in his elbow for this game. Walker will likely play 13-18 minutes tonight, but he's not a fantasy option in almost all leagues.
Apr 11 - 5:51 PM

Henry Walker (elbow) has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. the Raptors.

Walker's minutes were on the decline prior to the injury, and he isn't an option when the Heat are close to full strength. Walker can be dropped in almost all leagues, while Michael Beasley and James Ennis could get some extra minutes off the bench.
Apr 11 - 2:17 PM

Henry Walker (left elbow) will not play against the Bulls on Thursday and will miss a couple days.

He was probable due to an undisclosed injury on Tuesday and maybe it's this elbow problem. Walker's playing time was starting to slide anyway, so there shouldn't be many fantasy implications. Expect to see James Ennis and Michael Beasley play close to 15-20 minutes each.
Apr 9 - 7:10 PM

Henry Walker (undisclosed) is probable for Tuesday's game against Charlotte.

It's not clear what Walker's issue is, but it shouldn't prevent him from playing.
Apr 6 - 1:56 PM

Henry Walker filled in as a starter on Sunday and posted two points, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 19 minutes vs. the Pacers.

The Heat have turned to Walker out of desperation and he's likely to remain a starter with Michael Beasley (knee) ailing and Luol Deng (knee) heading for an MRI. Walker is only worth fantasy owners' attention for his 3-point shooting and steals -- as a starter he's knocking down 1.9 triples and swiping the ball 1.5 times per game.
Apr 5 - 9:09 PM

Henry Walker and Udonis Haslem will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers with both Chris Andersen (foot) and Hassan Whiteside (hand) unavailable.

Walker and Haslem don't offer a lot of upside, but they're going to get a healthy heaping of minutes tonight with Miami's frontcourt banged up. Walker can be viewed as a 3-point and steals specialist in deep leagues, but he's not making a blip on the standard league radar.
Apr 5 - 5:40 PM

Henry Walker made his ninth start of the season on Sunday, posting six points, five rebounds, one assist and one block in 34 minutes during Miami's win vs. the Pistons.

Walker gives the Heat some much-needed frontcourt depth without benefiting fantasy owners -- his 34.3 percent shooting is reason enough to avoid him in standard leagues. Owners looking for a cheap daily-league option should monitor Miami's injury report, however, as Walker may be forced into a 35-minute role on Tuesday.
Mar 29 - 9:10 PM

Henry Walker scored 12 points with nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

Udonis Haslem played 38 minutes on Wednesday and now Walker gets 40 minutes tonight. This is your 2014-15 Miami Heat right now. Walker has buried at least three 3-pointers in four of his last five, averaging 8.4 points, 4.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.8 treys in that span. He's worth a look in standard leagues, especially with Dwyane Wade dealing with a knee issue.
