Udonis Haslem (quad) was limited during Friday's practice.

Updating a previous report, Udonis Haslem (quad) will be active for Wednesday's season opener.

Erik Spoelstra said that Haslem's quad has been sore for the past week, but he's well enough to suit up as a reserve big man behind Chris Bosh and Shawne Williams. His role may increase slightly this season, but not enough to make him fantasy-relevant.

Udonis Haslem (quad) is questionable to play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

Haslem averaged numerous career-lows last season with 3.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 0.3 blocks in 14 minutes per game.
Oct 29 - 5:57 PM

Udonis Haslem has agreed to re-sign with the Heat with an expected annual salary of $2.7 million.

The deal will be for one or two years, and it represents a major sacrifice for Haslem since he opted out of a $4.6 million player option this summer. He's the ultimate team player and he'll likely retire with the Heat, whom he's played for since 2003, but fantasy owners can safely ignore him on draft day.
Jul 15 - 4:09 PM

The Miami Heat officially renounced their rights to Udonis Haslem on Monday.

Falling into the Heat's two-year plan, Haslem looks primed to re-join the team on a $2.7 room mid-level exception. Haslem only averaged 3.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 46 games last season, so it goes without saying that the 34-year-old's fantasy value is essentially non-existent at this point in his career.

Udonis Haslem has opted out of his contract and will become a free agent.

He is almost a lock to get a multiple-year deal with the Heat. Haslem, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all have the same agent and are likely doing this to help the Heat have some flexibility during free agent. In other words, U.D. opting out is just a formality and he'll be sporting No. 40 next season. He won't have much fantasy value, though.

Udonis Haslem's decision on his player option could influence the futures of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh in Miami.

Haslem has a $4.62 million player option for 2014-15 and has yet to inform the Heat on whether or not he'll decide to pick up that option. If Haslem decides to pick up his option, it will hinder the Heat's salary cap capabilities and would limit the caliber of fourth player the team would like to add to the "Big 3" of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. This situation is about as fluid as can be with James opting out of his contract on Tuesday and Bosh and Wade still deciding on their player options, but Haslem's decision could go a long way towards keeping the Big 3 together or potentially lead to the end of an era in Miami.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said Udonis Haslem could "possibly" play more in Game 5 on Sunday.

"He's on my mind," Spoelstra said. "These are the types of games where he's proven himself." The Heat seem to be over the idea of playing Rashard Lewis in the starting lineup and went with Ray Allen to start the second half on Thursday. The Spurs have whipped the Heat inside, so the extra size makes sense.
Jun 14 - 5:48 PM

Udonis Haslem started over Shane Battier on Tuesday, but had just seven points and three rebounds in 19 minutes.

Chris Andersen was a +25 off the bench tonight and it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him replace Haslem as a starter at some point. Birdman had three points and 12 rebounds, while Norris Cole had 11 points, two assists and two 3-pointers off the bench, and looks like a better option at point guard than Mario Chalmers for the Heat. They took homecourt advantage with tonight's win and will get to rest for three days before Game 3 in Miami on Saturday.
May 20 - 11:27 PM

Udonis Haslem will start over Shane Battier for the Heat in Tuesday's Game 2 against the Pacers.

No surprises here, as Battier was highly ineffective in Game 1, while the Heat were abused inside and on the glass. Haslem isn't really a game changer, but the move makes a lot of sense for the Heat, who will try to even things out on the glass in Game 2.
May 20 - 7:51 PM

Udonis Haslem could be in line to start Game 2 against the Pacers on Tuesday night.

Haslem and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra wouldn't divulge if the veteran forward would be starting on Tuesday night, but did add that a good defensive start is an important factor. Haslem started the second half of Sunday's Game 1 loss in place of Shane Battier and would bring a physical post presence that the Heat desperately need against Roy Hibbert. We'll update this situation as we here more, but Haslem sounds like he's ready to start if his name is called, "Hopefully I get the opportunity to bring a little more physicality to our lineup."

Udonis Haslem started the second half of Game 1 vs. the Pacers on Sunday.

The Pacers had one of their best offensive halves in a long time, so coach Erik Spoelstra decided to shake things up. In fact, Indiana had a ridiculous effective field goal percentage of 67.6 in the first half, which would be on pace to break their season high in a game of 64.9. Shane Battier moved back to the bench.
May 18 - 4:53 PM

Udonis Haslem (illness) neared a double-double in Friday's win over the Pacers, scoring 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting with nine rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes.

If the Heat continue to roll with Haslem in order to ready him for the playoffs, he has some mild appeal if you're hunting points and boards.
Apr 12 - 12:36 AM

Udonis Haslem (illness) is expected to play in Friday's game against the Pacers.

Haslem sat out Tuesday and Wednesday. He'll likely return to his starting power forward role in this showdown of Eastern Conference powers. The Heat trail the Pacers by just a half-game for the No. 1 seed.
Apr 11 - 11:17 AM

Udonis Haslem (illness) did not travel for Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

He missed Tuesday vs. the Nets and he will miss his second straight game. The Heat went with a smaller lineup on Tuesday and will likely do so again with Shane Battier in the starting lineup.
