  • Heat's Max Strus: Playing, starting Game 6

    Strus (hamstring) will play in Friday's Game 6 against the Celtics, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Unsurprisingly, Strus will see the floor after being listed questionable over and over again with no risk of actually missing time. That could all end Friday, though, as the Heat are down 3-2 on the road. He's struggled during the series, notably going 0-for-16 from beyond the arc over the past two games.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Expected to play in Game 6

    Head coach Erik Spoelstra said Thursday that Strus (hamstring) is expected to play Friday for Game 6 against Boston, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Strus is still officially listed as questionable for Friday, but it sounds like he'll be available for Game 6 barring any setbacks. His official status will be determined closer to tipoff.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Listed questionable again

    Strus (hamstring) is questionable for Friday's Game 6 at Boston.

    This is the 12th game in a row for which Strus has been listed as questionable, but there's no reason to believe the hamstring injury he suffered more than a month ago is still an issue. The sharpshooter has gone brutally cold over the last two games, missing all 11 of his attempts from deep in Games 4 and 5.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Back on injury report

    Strus (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's Game 5 against Boston.

    Once more, Strus does not appear to be actually dealing with a hamstring issue, but he's included on the injury report nonetheless. The sharpshooter went cold in Monday's Game 4 blowout, going 0-of-7 from the field and 0-of-4 from deep in just 15 minutes of action.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Likely to play Monday

    Strus (hamstring) is trending toward playing in Monday night's Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Boston.

    While Strus has not missed any time or faced any limitations during the playoffs, the Heat continue to insist that he's battling a phantom hamstring injury. There's no reason to believe the sharpshooter won't be in the lineup at his usual shooting guard spot. With Tyler Herro (groin) out, Strus could be looking at an increased minutes-load.

    Strus has been a bit inconsistent with his scoring figures in recent games, but he continues to make an impact on offense and particularly from three-point range. He has made at least two treys in each of his last eight appearances, a span in which he's averaging 12.0 points per game while shooting 39.1 percent from deep.

  • 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.
