Top Max Strus News

  • Heat's Max Strus: Scores 25 out of nowhere

    Strus supplied 25 points (8-13 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and one steal across 24 minutes during Saturday's 124-102 loss to the Bucks.

    Strus has been coming off the bench in every game for the Heat, but he seems to be playing better of late and has scored in double digits in four of his last five appearances. While he can experience an uptick in both usage and scoring figures due to the lack of depth, he is not likely to score around the 20-point mark on a regular basis.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Plays 25 minutes Saturday

    Strus contributed two points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and four rebounds in 25 minutes during Saturday's 103-100 loss to the Wizards.

    Sturs saw some additional playing time in the loss after Duncan Robinson was forced from the game after just 19 minutes due to a knee contusion. The playing time was encouraging but alas, Strus did nothing with the opportunity. It doesn't sound as though Robinson's injury is too serious but should he miss time, Strus could have some streaming appeal in deeper formats.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Efficient from bench in win

    Strus produced 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and six rebounds across 22 minutes in Monday's 103-90 win over the Thunder.

    Strus is a fixture with the second unit and saw extra time on the floor with Jimmy Butler sidelined. The former Chicago Bull only logs around 18 minutes per game when active, and injury kept him on the bench for a stretch earlier in the month. He has scored double-digits every time he has taken the floor, however.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Available at Los Angeles

    Strus (knee) is available against the Clippers on Thursday, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

    Strus is returning from a five-game absence related to his previous knee sprain. He averaged 6.0 points and 2.7 rebounds across six Heat games off the bench before getting injured.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Questionable against Clippers

  • Heat's Max Strus: Ruled out Wednesday

    Strus (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's contest against the Lakers, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Strus will miss his fifth straight game with a knee injury. The Heat will also be without Markieff Morris (suspension), so KZ Okpala may see extended work during Wednesday's matchup with the Lakers.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Downgraded to questionable

    Strus (knee) has been downgraded to questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Lakers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Strus has been sidelined for the Heat's past four games, but he was expected to return Wednesday. However, that may be in jeopardy, as he has been downgraded from probable to questionable. Miami currently has injuries to Strus, Caleb Martin (thumb), Tyler Herro (back) and P.J. Tucker (shoulder), and will be without Markieff Morris due to a suspension, so it's unclear what the rotations will look like against the Lakers.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Ruled out Wednesday

    Strus (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Strus was initially listed as probable for Wednesday's matchup, but he woke up sore following a workout Tuesday and will be held out once again. Although he's trending in the right direction, Caleb Martin (thumb), Gabe Vincent and Duncan Robinson should see increased run against the Lakers.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Probable Wednesday

    Strus (knee) is probable for Wednesday's matchup against the Lakers.

    Strus has been out the past four games but should be back in action Wednesday. He's averaging 6.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in 17.3 minutes.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Nearing return

    Strus (knee) will warm up for Monday's game against the Nuggets but is unlikely to play.

    It's reassuring to hear that Strus is continuing to make progress, and it sounds as though he could return any day now. While he's unlikely to return to action Monday, it's certainly a possibility that he gains clearance later in the week.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Facing multi-week absence

    Strus is expected to miss a couple weeks after he was diagnosed with a left knee sprain Monday, the Associated Press reports. "We got good news out of [an MRI], and we'll just see where we go from there," Strus said. "I'll rehab it and get stronger."

    Though Strus avoided any major structural damage to his knee, he'll be forced to miss at least a handful of games after he picked up the injury late in Saturday's win over the Grizzlies following an awkward landing on a drive to the rim. The 25-year-old had been featured in the Miami rotation in each of the team's first six games, averaging 6.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in 17.3 minutes while ranking third on the team with nine made three-pointers.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Won't play Tuesday

    Strus (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's contest against the Mavericks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Strus is dealing with a right knee sprain and will be sidelined for at least one contest. The 25-year-old has played a sizeable role off the bench for the Heat this season, averaging 17.3 minutes per game. During his absence, Gabe Vincent and KZ Okpala may see increased minutes against the Mavericks on Tuesday.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Hits six triples Friday

    Strus posted 28 points (9-18 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 36 minutes during Friday's 109-105 preseason win over the Spurs.

    With only eight available players, the Heat were reliant on Strus for scoring. He took the second-most shots on the team behind Tyler Herro (25). Strus' role will be relatively small during the season, though he should be able to get some reserve time on the wing.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Expected to sit Tuesday

    Strus will likely be held out of Tuesday's Summer League finale against the Mavs, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    There's nothing on the line for the Heat, so it looks as though they'll sit a few regulars in an effort to avoid injuries. Strus has been among the most impressive players in Las Vegas, averaging 20.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 40 percent from three on 11.3 attempts per game.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Will remain with Heat

    Strus has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Miami, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    Strus' deal with the Heat is a two-year, $3.5 million pact, and while the third-year small forward will remain as a depth piece for Miami, he's not expected to have a major role off the bench unless the team suffers a rash of injuries. He averaged 6.1 points, 1.1 rebounds and 0.6 assists across 13.0 minutes per game last season in his first year with the franchise.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Extended qualifying offer

    Strus was extended a qualifying offer by the Heat on Friday, making him a restricted free agent, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

    Strus saw an increased role as a sophomore last season. In 13.0 minutes per game across 39 appearances, he averaged 6.1 points and 1.1 rebounds. While he's a restricted free agent, it's probably not one of the Heat's priorities to retain him at any cost.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Will play in Summer League

    Strus will play for the Heat's Summer League team, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Pours in 20 in season finale

    Strus tallied 20 points (7-16 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 36 minutes Sunday in the Heat's 120-107 win over the Pistons.

    With little at stake for the playoff-bound Heat in the regular-season finale, head coach Erik Spoelstra held out or limited several key players, allowing deep reserves like Strus the opportunity to pick up extended run. Strus took advantage of the extra playing time to deliver one of the best outings of his young career, falling just one point shy of matching his highest total of the season. He'll likely fall out of the rotation during the Heat's upcoming first-round series with the Bucks.

  • Heat's Max Strus: Absent Wednesday

    Strus (coach's decision) didn't play during Wednesday's win over the Spurs.

    Strus posted back-to-back outings with five points prior to being sidelined for Wednesday's victory. The former DePaul standout has totaled 21 points and four rebounds across his past six appearances.
