The Heat are "open" to bringing Amare Stoudemire back at the minimum salary, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
We're "open" to lots of possibilities, but that doesn't make their pursuit "likely" in any way, shape or form. "It would have to be a defined role [to return]," his agent, Travis King, said last week. "He loves [Miami] and the team but he loves playing. He’s looking somewhere he can play. He wants to contribute 10 to 20 minutes a night." Assuming Miami re-signs Hassan Whiteside, the odds of Stoudemire finding that role with the Heat are slim to none. May 30 - 9:26 AM

Amare Stoudemire was a DNP-CD during Miami's Game 7 loss on Sunday.

Udonis Haslem was also nearly a DNP, as Erik Spoelstra opted to continue playing extreme small-ball. Stoudemire praised his teammates after the game ("I had the best time of my life with my teammates this season"), but he also complained about a lack of playing time ("That was not part of the deal"). He's likely to sign another short-term, minimum-salary with a contender this summer.

Amare Stoudemire was a DNP-CD on Friday.

The Heat small lineups are doing really well. Stoudemire is likely not going to play in Game 7.
May 13 - 11:14 PM

Amare Stoudemire was benched after halftime during Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors, finishing scoreless with one rebound and one steal in three minutes of action.

The Heat don't have many options with Hassan Whiteside (knee) on the shelf, ostensibly relying on veterans Amare and Udonis Haslem (six points, three boards) for limited minutes at center. They wound up going with Josh McRoberts in the middle and a variety of ultra-small lineups after halftime, which worked well enough, so there's a good chance Stoudemire will be out of the equation in Game 6.
May 11 - 11:02 PM

Amare Stoudemire will start again on Wednesday against the Raptors.

We'll see how quickly the Heat go small because their starters on Monday were really their worst group. Stoudemire is not a fantasy option. If you were looking at Josh McRoberts, he's still on the board.
May 11 - 6:43 PM

Amare Stoudemire scored six points with three rebounds in 12 minutes as the starting center against the Raptors on Monday.

He just has too many miles on the tires and 12 minutes was almost too much for him. Stoudemire is not a fantasy option.
May 9 - 11:46 PM

Amare Stoudemire will start Monday for Game 4 against the Raptors.

He is likely just going to start out for the first rotation and it's up in the air after that. Besides Hassan Whiteside (knee), Stoudemire was the only Heat player to play in Game 3 and log fewer than 12 minutes. He should play more than four tonight, but he's not the best fantasy option. Josh McRoberts and Udonis Haslem should also help fill in while the Heat go small, as well.
May 9 - 7:15 PM

Amare Stoudemire said he'll likely start against the Raptors on Monday.

Be careful here. Stoudemire looked bad in Game 3 and he's not likely to play much anyway. He's a very risky DFS target while Udonis Haslem and Josh McRoberts are also a dice roll. McRoberts has the most upside.
May 9 - 6:52 PM

Amare Stoudemire played four minutes with one missed field goal and one foul against the Raptors on Saturday.

He's just too much of a liability on defense to be used even with Hassan Whiteside (knee) unlikely for Game 4. Stoudemire won't be a punt play in DFS.
May 7 - 7:56 PM

Amare Stoudemire was a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday.

Amare had been playing limited minutes as a starter ahead of Hassan Whiteside, but he was just a starter in name only. Miami would assuredly like to get him some rest before the postseason, assuming he'll even be in the rotation, so his minimal fantasy value has officially evaporated.
Apr 10 - 8:27 PM

Amare Stoudemire needed just 15 minutes to score 16 points with nine boards and two blocks vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday.

The only other time STAT has scored in double digits this month was against Philly on Mar. 4, so it makes sense that he had a nice game vs. the depleted Pelicans' frontcourt. He only gets minutes in the teens, so he's safe to leave on the wire.
Mar 22 - 10:47 PM

Amare Stoudemire (head laceration) went to the locker room during Friday's game against the 76ers, but he will return.

Stoudemire's head laceration didn't require any stitches to close, and it didn't look like much either. He's fine.
Mar 4 - 7:26 PM

Amare Stoudemire started Wednesday's game but he failed to score in just six minutes of action.

Hassan Whiteside started the second half and Miami went small quite often vs. the Warriors tonight, so there was no incentive to play Stoudemire. He belongs on the waiver wire.
Feb 24 - 11:48 PM

Goran Dragic, Gerald Green, Justise Winslow, Luol Deng and Amare Stoudemire are starting again on Saturday against the Wizards.

The Heat are in a similar scenario except that Hassan Whiteside is back. It'll be very interesting to see how Stoudemire and Josh McRoberts respond on a back-to-back. STAT isn't worth using with Whiteside back and McBobs has some risk, too.
Feb 20 - 5:57 PM

Amare Stoudemire scored just six points with six rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

It was a letdown, which isn't all that surprising in the front end of a back-to-back set. With Hassan Whiteside coming back on Saturday, Stoudemire can be dropped in most leagues.
