Iguodala amassed just one point (0-2 FG, 1-2 FT), two assists, two blocks and one rebound in 19 minutes during Sunday's 100-89 victory over Washington. Iguodala's real-life value far outweighs his overall fantasy appeal and this was on full display Sunday. He typically provides excellent defense and should serve as a vital cog in the Heat's title aspirations. Unfortunately, that does not often translate into fantasy value and he should be left for those in deeper formats.
Iguodala recorded three points (1-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), four assists, four blocks and three rebounds during Monday's 125-119 loss to the Cavaliers. While Iguodala couldn't find his shot, he made a defensive impact, tying his career-high four blocks. Since joining the Heat, he's averaging 4.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.2 blocks in 20.3 minutes. He might occasionally pay off as a flyer in DFS, but he isn't providing much value for standard season-long fantasy leagues.
Iguodala registered two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 23 minutes Sunday in the Heat's 115-109 loss to the Trail Blazers. The 36-year-old was back in action for the first time in eight months and made an impact across the box score in his Heat debut, though he didn't stand out in any one area. The veteran swingman could see a slight uptick in minutes in future games once he regains some conditioning, but his fantasy upside will be fairly limited when the Heat are at full strength. The Heat were without Jimmy Butler (shoulder) and Tyler Herro (foot) on Sunday but could have both players back for Monday's showdown with the Warriors.
Coach Erik Spoelstra confirmed Iguodala will be available for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers. Considering that Iguodala had sat out all season before the Grizzlies dealt him to the Heat a few days ago, expect the 36-year-old to be eased into Miami's rotation in his 2019-20 debut. As part of their acquisition of Iguodala, Miami immediately inked him to a two-year contract extension, so it's clear that the organization plans on having the veteran fill a key role, likely as a member of the second unit. Even at his advanced age, Iguodala is regarded as a strong defender that can guard four positions, but his typically low usage rate makes him more valuable in real life than in fantasy basketball.
Iguodala (not injury related) is expected to be available but it's not clear if he will play Sunday against the Trail Blazers, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports. Iguodala is likely to suit up, but coach Erik Spoelstra is "still workout out what the rotations will look like," so it's possible he doesn't take the court. More information may arrive following the team's morning shootaround or pregame activities.
