Reed plans to become an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
Reed has previously expressed interest in returning to Miami, however his decision will ultimately depend on whether or not the Heat have the cap room to pay what the market says he's worth. Reed participated in 77 games for the Heat during their 2016-17 season, registering 5.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks in 14.5 minutes per game.
Reed collected 16 points (8-9 FG) and six rebounds across 15 minutes in Wednesday's 110-102 victory over the Wizards.
Having eclipsed 10 points in a game only a handful of times this year, Reed put up one of his better outings in the season finale trying to help push his team into the playoffs, even with limited minutes. Unfortunately, his hot hand from the floor Wednesday night didn't matter as the Bulls won as well, so he can only really hang his hat on the 5.1 points he averaged throughout the season.
Reed (calf) will suit up for Friday's game against the Magic, but may not see his normal allotment of minutes, Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post reports.
Reed was able to take part in the Heat's morning shootaround and noted afterward that he felt well enough to play, but since he's not fully recovered from his inflamed right calf, coach Erik Spoelsta may only ask the backup center to play in brief spurts during both halves. In 50 appearances this season, Reed is averaging 14.7 minutes per game, so he won't see extensive playing time once he's further removed from the calf injury.
The Heat officially listed Reed as questionable for Friday's contest after he was only able to take part in non-contact portions of Thursday's practice, but his involvement in shootaround will give him a more realistic shot at playing. If Reed is active Friday, he'll likely in line for around 10-to-15 minutes as the main backup to Hassan Whiteside (illness).
Reed (calf) was restricted to non-contact portions of Thursday's practice and is considered questionable for Friday's game against the Magic, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.
Reed has missed the last two contests with a calf injury, and the fact that he was restricted in Thursday's practice doesn't necessarily bode well for his availability Friday. With Hassan Whiteside (illness) questionable to play Friday as well, the Heat could be seriously thin at center, which might force James Johnson and Udonis Haslem to handle all the minutes at the position. Look for Reed's status to be updated after the team's morning shootaround Friday.
