  • Heat's Max Strus: On injury report again

    Strus (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Celtics.

    As has been the case for most of the postseason, Strus is not actually injured, but the Heat continue to give him a phantom designation for unknown reasons. In Round 2 against Philly, Strus did not miss any time, nor did he face any limitations. He finished out the series with 20 points, 11 rebounds and five assists in Miami's Game 6 victory.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Double-double in Game 6 win

    Strus totaled 20 points (6-14 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes during Thursday's 99-90 win over the 76ers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

    It was the second straight double-double for the third-year wing, who has taken on a key role for the Heat with Kyle Lowry (hamstring) sidelined. Strus has scored in double digits six times in the last 10 games during the postseason while draining multiple three-pointers in nine of those 10 contests, but if Lowry is 100 percent for the start of the Eastern Conference Finals, the 26-year-old's usage would likely drop.

    Strus (hamstring) is listed questionable for Thursday's Game 6 against the 76ers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Once again, there's no reason to believe Strus is actually dealing with a hamstring injury, but the Heat continue to include him -- along with several other healthy players -- on every injury report. Strus broke out of a shooting slump in Game 5 on Tuesday, finishing with 19 points, 10 rebounds and four three-pointers (4-10 3Pt) in 28 minutes.

    After four straight single-digit outings, Strus exploded for 19 points -- his second highest total of the postseason. The 6-foot-5 wing also led Miami with a season-high 10 boards, notching his first career double-double.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Listed questionable for Game 2

    Strus (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's Game 2 against the 76ers.

    Strus carried the same designation into Monday's Game 1, but there's little reason to believe he's actually dealing with a hamstring injury, as the Heat look to be employing some gamesmanship with their injury reports. Strus has started all six of Miami's postseason contests, and over the last three games, he's played 36, 32 and 33 minutes, respectively. He finished Monday's Game 1 victory over Philly with just five points (1-7 3Pt) and five boards.

    Strus was listed as questionable for Game 1, but the issue was never expected to be too serious. The 6-foot-5 wing scored at least 12 points in each of the final four games of the Heat's opening-round series win and is expected to garner a similar workload Monday.
