Josh Richardson made 8-of-21 from the field for 28 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes during a 113-112 win over the Wizards on Thursday.

He set a career-high 21 attempts last night and he met that today. Richardson was among the non-PG league leaders for time of possession on the ball in the busy Wednesday, and it's obvious coach Erik Spoelstra wants J-Rich to be an offensive star on this team. He's also played 38 minutes in each of his two games, so his upside looks to be even higher than the third-round value he put up last year.

Hassan Whiteside scored nine points with 10 rebounds and one block in 29 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

Just like last night, Whiteside did get key minutes in the fourth, so it looks like that late-season issue is a thing of the past with coach Erik Spoelstra. Whiteside looks lighter on his feet and Spo still kept him out there against small-ball lineups, so his owners should feel great about getting him after 50.

Goran Dragic made 3-of-18 from the field for eight points with six rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

He did whatever he wanted on last night against D.J. Augustin, but not tonight against John Wall. Dragic tends to be one of the more consistent guards when he's healthy, so his owners should basically just ignore this dud.

Rodney McGruder had a career night against the Wizards on Thursday, scoring 20 points with eight rebounds, six assists, one block and three 3-pointers.

McGruder don't play like homie, and homie don't play like that. He set career marks in points and dimes, and matched his best output in boards. McGruder is going to be in the best spot he's been in all season with about half of the Heat wing depth out, but Justise Winslow and Wayne Ellington should be back soon. He is coach Erik Spoelstra's go-to guy when the Heat are missing players, so he could be worth a deep stream until the Heat are healthy. Congrats to anyone who used him in DFS or as a stream.

Derrick Jones Jr. scored a career-high 17 points against the Wizards on Thursday, adding five rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

Coach Erik Spoelstra likes his versatility with Jones Jr. playing three position in the early going, including back-to-back starts at power forward. He had a stellar run in July at summer league, but he's lost a little momentum and he has 11 fouls in two games. He'll probably take a hit when James Johnson, Wayne Ellington and Justise Winslow come back, so leave him on the wire.
Oct 18 - 11:37 PM

Kelly Olynyk scored nine points with four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

He made the play of the game here with a putback to give the Heat a one-point lead with 0.2 second left. Besides that there isn't much to like and make it back-to-back games with 15 minutes for Olynyk. Considering James Johnson (groin) isn't even active right now, it's a bleak outlook for a guy who dominated late last season. He's looking like a pretty easy drop in most leagues.
Oct 18 - 11:34 PM

Bam Adebayo scored four points with nine rebounds in 17 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

He continues to be a defensive dynamo as one of the better perimeter-defending bigs in the league. Adebayo is still not going to get heavy minutes while Kelly Olynyk and Hassan Whiteside are healthy, but it's apparent that he would be an immediate pickup if something happened to either.
Oct 18 - 11:31 PM

John Wall scored 26 points with three rebounds, nine assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Heat during a 113-112 loss on Thursday.

It was a discouraging offseason for Wall, but he looked like his All-Star self as he leaned on his drives to get to a team-high 26. Wall's blocks weren't cheapies either and getting 36 minutes out of the gate is another positive despite this heartbreaking, last-second loss on a Kelly Olynyk bucket. Wall will be putting up big lines as long as he's healthy.
