Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh will not play in Sunday's All-Star Game due to a strained calf.

The specifics are not known yet on Bosh, who played 35 minutes on Tuesday night and didn't appear to be hurt. The Heat don't play again until Friday Feb. 19, so there could be a decent chance he is ready to return for action with the team.
Feb 12 - 3:59 PM

The Heat are reportedly willing to trade Jarnell Stokes for a second round pick.

Stokes has only made a handful of brief appearances for Miami and he has spent the majority of his time in the D-League, so the Heat are simply looking to open up a roster spot. Unless Stokes is traded to an ideal situation, he would likely be looking at a very limited role. He's not worth stashing at this point.
Feb 12 - 10:53 AM

Hassan Whiteside has been suspended one game for elbowing Boban Marjanovic in the head during Tuesday's loss to the Spurs.

Whiteside definitely deserved the suspension for his actions, and he'll now be forced to sit out next Friday's game in Atlanta. With Whiteside unavailable, Amare Stoudemire will continue to start with Chris Bosh logging extended minutes at the five-spot. Josh McRoberts and Justise Winslow also figure to earn some extended run sans Hassan.

Jarnell Stokes has been assigned to Miami's D-League affiliate.

He's going down for the D-League All-Star game. Stokes is not a fantasy option in any format.

Erik Spoelstra was noticeably frustrated when discussing Hassan Whiteside's ejection for a flagrant 2 foul during Tuesday's loss to the Spurs.

"That's something that we'll deal with, with Hassan," Spoelstra said. "We don't condone that kind of play. We've been through this with him before, but it's a disappointing play." Whiteside elbowed Boban Marjanovic during Tuesday's game, which resulted in the ejection, and Dwyane Wade also voiced his displeasure with Hassan's behavior saying there's only so long "you can hold somebody's hand and walk them through it." Whiteside could very well receive a suspension for his actions.

Dwyane Wade said that he wants his free agency to be quick and he expects to finish his career in Miami.

"I want to be able to sign my deal and move on and not have to deal with any rumors, any free agency, any this, any that," said Wade. "This is where I want to end my career. So we'll figure it out." Wade has been a cornerstone of the Miami franchise since coming into the league, and it doesn't sound like he's very interested in going elsewhere. He's having a healthy season, but is only putting up late-round value with averages of 18.6 points, 4.2 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
Feb 10 - 9:13 AM

Justise Winslow played 24 minutes on Tuesday, but hit just 1-of-2 shots for two points, one assist and two turnovers.

He looked like a decent DFS option with Luol Deng iffy with an illness, but Deng played and Winslow was eaten up while trying to handle the likes of Kawhi Leonard and other Spurs on the defensive end. Winslow's minutes have been encouraging, but while he's averaging 6.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals over his last five games, he's also only bringing 5.4 points to the table every night.
Feb 9 - 11:46 PM

Dwyane Wade played 31 minutes and hit 9-of-12 shots for 20 points, five assists and a steal on Tuesday.

He dinged his foot/ankle and was also seen holding his back tonight, but played through it all. His shooting was spectacular, but the fact he didn't have a single rebound in a little concerning. Wade's managed to stay pretty healthy this season and is averaging 18.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.2 steals on 44 percent shooting over his last five. The Heat are done until after the All-Star break, so hopefully Wade gets plenty of rest between now and Feb. 19, when they play the Hawks in Atlanta.
Feb 9 - 11:40 PM

Luol Deng played through an illness on Tuesday and had 11 points, two rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He was a game-time decision coming in, so the fact he played was nice. He's been playing pretty well of late, but didn't look all that great due to the illness. He's a borderline player to own in standard leagues.
Feb 9 - 11:37 PM

Amare Stoudemire stuck in the starting lineup on Tuesday, but played just 13 minutes and finished with two points, eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Hassan Whiteside, if not suspended after his ejection tonight, appears to be nearing a return to the starting five, which would push Amare to the bench. As long as Chris Bosh and Whiteside are healthy and playing, Stoudemire can be thrown back into the waiver pool after a decent run as a starter for the Heat.
Feb 9 - 11:35 PM

Hassan Whiteside was ejected from Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs for a flagrant 2 foul.

The ejection was warranted as Whiteside threw an obvious elbow into Boban Marjanovic. Whiteside has been in trouble with the league before for similar reasons, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he received a suspension. He finished with 14 points, six boards and two blocks in 25 minutes.
Feb 9 - 10:17 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

He tweaked his ankle during Sunday's game, but he made it through tonight's warmups and is ready to give it a go. Whiteside's minutes are still being held in check by coach Erik Spoelstra, but he's still a must-start player in season-long leagues.
Feb 9 - 8:11 PM

Chris Andersen (knee, ankle) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

He has no timetable for a return and isn't in the rotation anyways. Leave the Birdman on the wire.
Feb 9 - 7:15 PM

Udonis Haslem (illness) will play Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Haslem's playing status should be of no concern to fantasy GMs in any setting.
Feb 9 - 6:36 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) will warm up with the intention of playing Tuesday vs. the Spurs, although he remains a game-time decision.

Whiteside's suffered a minor ankle tweak during Sunday's game, but head coach Erik Spoelstra said after Monday's practice that he could play "big minutes" vs. San Antonio, so it sounds like he'll be out there tonight. He will, however, come off the bench as Spoelstra said he'll go with the same starting five of Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Amare Stoudemire and Chris Bosh for Tuesday's game.
