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.

Luol Deng (illness) and Udonis Haslem (illness) will "give it a go" Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Deng sat out Tuesday morning's shootaround with the illness, but that won't stop him from missing tonight's game against San Antonio. He has a horrible matchup, so Deng isn't a great DFS target.
Feb 9 - 6:21 PM

Udonis Haslem (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

Haslem missed shootaround on Tuesday and looks headed for a game-time decision against the Spurs. Haslem is averaging 8.0 minutes per game this season and isn't worth a look in any fantasy league even if he does play.
Feb 9 - 11:40 AM

Luol Deng (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

Deng missed shootaround with an illness and Heat head coach Erick Spoelstra said he didn't know if Deng will be available for Tuesday night. We'll keep an eye on his status, but Justise Winslow will be in line for a minutes boost if Deng is unable to suit up against the Spurs.
Feb 9 - 11:29 AM

Hassan Whiteside (left ankle) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

Whiteside was able to practice on Tuesday and Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said he was encouraged by how the big man looked, so it's likely we'll see him on the court against the Spurs. Check back to make sure he's active for Tuesday, but Whiteside should be started as long as he's in the Heat lineup.
Feb 9 - 11:27 AM

The trade market for Josh McRoberts is close to non-existent according to Bobby Marks of Yahoo Sports.

McRoberts is signed through the 2017-18 season, but his myriad of injuries have scared away potential suitors. The 28-year-old is only averaging 14.9 minutes in the 24 games he's been healthy this season and can be left on waivers in most fantasy leagues.
Feb 9 - 9:38 AM

Amare Stoudemire could move back to the bench on Tuesday.

Presumably this would mean Hassan Whiteside (ankle) is ready get back in the starting lineup, assuming he's healthy enough to play. Stoudemire has been surprisingly effective, but he's still not worth grabbing in almost any league.
Feb 8 - 4:01 PM

Despite not practicing on Monday, Hassan Whiteside (left ankle) is expected to play on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Although Whiteside's ankle swelled on him overnight, Erik Spoelstra said Whiteside is okay and "could play big minutes tomorrow." It's unclear if that's Spo's way of hinting that Whiteside will be back in the first five, but Amare Stoudemire is tentatively expected to stick in the starting lineup for now. Either way, Whiteside should be active on all fantasy rosters.
Feb 8 - 1:58 PM

Josh McRoberts is focused on getting healthy and contributing to the Heat.

"I’m just trying to get healthy and have a chance to help the team in a way that I know I can," he said. It's been a trying road for McBob in Miami, relegating him to waiver wire fodder in fantasy leagues.
Feb 8 - 1:18 PM

Hassan Whiteside said he's "done" talking to Erik Spoelstra about his fourth quarter playing time.

"I’m done talking to Coach about it," he said. "I have nothing else– We’ve talked about it so many times, ain’t no reason to keep talking to him about it. I’m just gonna play." While Spo said the "offense needed a little bit of a punch" on Sunday in explaining Whiteside's crunchtime benching, this has been a theme throughout the season. The coach did admit that Whiteside's ankle tweak was part of the big man sitting, but the big man said he was "fine" and it seemed like a convenient excuse for Spoelstra. Regardless of when his minutes are coming or whether or not he's starting, Whiteside should be locked into all lineups.

Chris Bosh - F/C - Heat

Chris Bosh went just 5-of-17 from the field and 4-of-7 from the line during Sunday's loss to the Clippers, on his way to 17 points, five rebounds, three 3-pointers, two assists and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

Bosh has been producing just eighth-round value over the past month with averages of 19.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.1 three-pointers, 0.4 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.6 turnover per game on 46.5 percent shooting. However, his rebounding, 3-point shooting and defensive numbers should trend up after the All-Star break, so he qualifies as buy-low candidate.
Feb 7 - 6:19 PM

Luol Deng produced 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, one 3-pointer and one assist in 40 minutes.

The scoring comes and goes for Deng, and with averages of 10.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.2 three-pointers, 0.9 steals and 1.0 turnover per game, he's nothing more than a late-round asset in standard leagues.
