Luol Deng scored 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, four assists, one block, and one turnover during Sunday's win over the Bulls.

Deng also played some amazing defense against Jimmy Butler, holding him to just 2-of-8 from the field, and it looks like he's over his illness. Keep rolling him out there.

Dwyane Wade scored 26 points on 10-of-18 shooting during Sunday's win over the Bulls, adding three rebounds, three assists, and five turnovers.

Wade was also a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe, and it appears he's completely over his illness that held him back during Friday's game. Wade also reportedly told Hassan Whiteside to shut up and block shots, which resulted in Whiteside setting a franchise and career-high in blocked shots (12) tonight. Nice.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh shot 9-of-20 from the field during Sunday's win over the Bulls, scoring 20 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one turnover over 36 minutes of action.

Bosh missed all four of his 3-point attempts in this one, but that's not exactly surprising given the fact the Bulls allow the fewest amount of 3-pointers per game. Bosh has been putting up second-to-third round value throughout the season, and as long as he's healthy, he'll continue to flourish as one of Miami's go-to guys on offense.

Mario Chalmers finally got things back on track on Sunday, putting up 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting to go with five assists, four rebounds, two steals, and three turnovers over 40 minutes of action.

Chalmers also hit one 3-pointer and was a perfect 4-of-4 from the stripe, but it's worth noting that Norris Cole did not even step on the court today. Hopefully Chalmers will get things going after today's outing, and he's worth a look if he was dropped in your league after a month-long cold streak.

Hassan Whiteside put up a magnificent triple-double on Sunday, racking up 14 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 blocks over just 26.6 minutes of action.

The 12 blocks were not only an NBA season-high, but also a single-game franchise setting record in Miami. When speaking after the game, Whiteside joked: "I’m just trying to get my NBA2K rating up." While that will likely go up, his ownership in fantasy leagues is also due for a huge increase (currently 48 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues) so make sure he's not sitting on your waiver wire.
Jan 25 - 3:32 PM

Chris Andersen will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bulls.

Hassan Whiteside just retuned from an ankle injury, so the Heat are probably just exercising caution by bringing him along slowly. Andersen still likely won't see more than 20 minutes of action, so unless you are desperate for blocks there is no need to hold onto him. Whiteside is still the center to own in Miami.
Jan 25 - 12:43 PM

Hassan Whiteside will play against the Bulls on Sunday.

He did say his ankle was at 90 percent, but he has simply been too good to keep out of lineups. We will let you know how his ankle holds up after the game. Chris Andersen's value takes a big hit with this news and can be dropped in most leagues.
Jan 25 - 12:03 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) was spotted warming up prior to Sunday's game vs. the Bulls.

While he is hoping to play, we probably won't know his status until closer to tip-off so his owners will need to stay on alert for updates. With his upside in boards and blocks, Whiteside has emerged as a solid fantasy asset and is worth owning in all standard leagues even if does see a little more time on the sidelines. If he can't go, expect Chris Andersen and Udonis Haslem to fill the void.
Jan 25 - 11:37 AM

Luol Deng played through an illness in the Heat's 89-87 win over the Pacers on Friday, scoring 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds and three assists.

Deng looks like he's ready to produce for owners again and he should be in most lineups.
Jan 24 - 1:54 AM

Chris Andersen banged his left knee but stayed in the game and posted a season-high 13 rebounds to go with four points in 28 minutes on Friday against the Pacers.

Andersen is almost always a sneaky low-end value in standard leagues when given 23 or more minutes. Give him a look if you need a big man.
Jan 24 - 1:53 AM

Mario Chalmers scored nine points on 3-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, two assists and two steals over 30 minutes on Friday against the Pacers.

Chalmers has been ice-cold lately and he can only be viewed as a stash in the hopes the older players on the Heat start to exit stage left.
Jan 24 - 1:50 AM

Dwyane Wade played through an illness on Friday against the Pacers, finishing with 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting with zero rebounds, four assists and two steals in 32 minutes.

The illness certainly affected his performance and with six turnovers owners would have been fine if he just skipped this one. He's a major shutdown candidate and owners will want to root for the Heat to stay healthy and competitive for a playoff spot.
Jan 24 - 1:47 AM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) is not expected to play against the Pacers on Friday.

He tried to warmup and the Heat are just going to keep him on the bench. Whiteside's ankle sprain didn't look great and hopefully he can suit up Sunday against the Bulls. He should still be owned in all standard leagues.
Jan 23 - 7:45 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) is active and will come off the bench against the Pacers on Friday.

He might have his minutes held in check tonight. Chris Andersen is getting the start, but he'll likely only have minutes close to 20. Whiteside will be a risky play tonight, but he should be owned in all leagues.
Jan 23 - 6:42 PM

Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng will start against the Pacers on Friday.

We're still waiting to see what's up with Hassan Whiteside. Wade appears to be good to go and should run the offense for the Heat tonight as one of the highest usage rate guys in the NBA. Start him in your standard leagues.
