    Heat guard Mario Chalmers to play mostly point guard this season

    Heat guard Mario Chalmers (knee) won't spend much time at shooting guard this season like he did last year, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports. According to coach Erik Spoelstra, Chalmers' main role on the team this coming season will be to back up starting point guard Goran Dragic. This will certainly limit his time on the court as Spoelstra looks to incoming rookie Justise Winslow and veteran Gerald Green to occupy the majority of reserve minutes behind Dwyane Wade.

    Heat G Mario Chalmers was experiencing pain in knee all year

    Heat guard Mario Chalmers underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on May 29. But he had become aware of the problem that motivated the procedure far earlier. "It was giving me a little issues throughout the whole year," he revealed to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "It's been something that's going on for a while, but I was able to play through it. ... I feel like right now is the perfect time for me to go in and get it cleaned out, especially going into a contract year, and a big year for us as the Heat." He added that he has been doing some light shooting and should be cleared for heavier duty by the first week of July. Chalmers averaged a career-high 10.2 points in 24 minutes per game this year. But he shot just 40.3 percent from the field, his poorest accuracy since the 2010-11 season.

    Mario Chalmers not sure of role on Heat

    Mario Chalmers is unsure of his place on the Heat, and it frustrates him. "I don't even really know what my role is on this team anymore," Chalmers told the Miami Herald. "I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing." Chalmers has bounced between the starting lineup and the bench,and he's seen time at both guard spots. "A lot of people are out of rhythm, and you really don't know what's going to happen — when you're going to get the ball, when you're going to shoot it, you just never know. You just got to be ready for everything, I guess," he said.
