Top Omer Yurtseven News

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Starting in finale

    Yurtseven (illness) is starting Sunday's game against Orlando.

    Yurtseven was questionable Sunday due to an illness, but he'll join the starting lineup for the regular-season finale. He's made 11 starts this year and has averaged 12.5 points and 12.9 rebounds in 28.6 minutes per game in those appearances.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Questionable Sunday

    Yurtseven (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Magic.

    Yurtseven was absent from Friday's game against the Hawks, but he'll have a chance to return for Sunday's regular-season finale. If he's unavailable, Bam Adebayo should see plenty of usage.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Won't play Friday

    Yurtseven (illness) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hawks, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Yurtseven didn't practice Thursday, so his absence isn't surprising. Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) and Markieff Morris (hip) are both still listed as questionable, so it's unclear who will operate as the top center behind Bam Adebayo.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Questionable vs. Hawks

    Yurtseven (illness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Hawks.

    Yurtseven didn't practice Thursday. Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) is also questionable, so the Heat could end up shorthanded at reserve center.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Doesn't practice Thursday

    Yurtseven failed to practice Thursday due to an illness, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Until more information arrives, the third-string center should be considered questionable for Friday's second-to-last regular-season game against the Hawks. Even if healthy, he probably won't have a significant role unless the Heat choose to rest Bam Adebayo and/or Dewayne Dedmon (ankle).

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Back to bench Saturday

    Yurtseven will come off the bench Saturday against the 76ers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    The Heat are near full health, so Yurtseven heads back to the bench following a one-game stint with the starters. In his past eight appearances, he's averaged 4.9 points and 3.4 rebounds in 8.8 minutes.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Steps into starting five

    Yurtseven will start in Thursday's game against the Nets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    With Jimmy Butler (toe) ruled out for Thursday's contest, coach Erik Spoelstra elected to start big with both Bam Adebayo and Yurtseven in the starting lineup. Expect Butler to return to the starting lineup over Yurtseven once he's healthy.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Steps back into rotation

    Yurtseven finished with 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench Tuesday in Miami's 107-99 loss to Dallas.

    With Dewayne Dedmon (back) sitting out Tuesday, Yurtseven stepped back into the rotation after he failed to leave the bench in the Heat's previous game Saturday against Brooklyn. Though Yurtseven put up quality numbers during his time on the court, he won't have much fantasy value even in deeper leagues if Dedmon's absence proves to be brief.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Gets light run in return

    Yurtseven (COVID-19 protocols) logged three minutes off the bench in Saturday's 104-86 win over the Hornets, recording no statistics during his time on the court.

    Yurtseven rejoined the Heat after he wasn't available for any of the team's previous three games while he was in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. If not for the Heat holding a comfortable lead late in the fourth quarter, Yurtseven likely wouldn't have played, as he hadn't been included in head coach Erik Spoelstra's rotation prior to entering the protocols. The Heat are seemingly content to roll with Bam Adebayo and Dewayne Dedmon as their primary centers in most games.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Off injury report

    Yurtseven (COVID-19 protocols) is off the injury report for Saturday's game against the Hornets, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Yurtseven was placed in protocols at the end of January. He had fallen out of the rotation before that, however, so don't expect him to re-join despite being off the injury report.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Yurtseven was placed in the NBA's health and safety protocols Sunday, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Yurtseven had a 10-game stretch from the end of December through the middle of January where he averaged 13.6 points and 13.9 rebounds in 30.9 minutes per contest. However, he's fallen out of the rotation since Bam Adebayo returned from thumb surgery. He's made just two appearances over the last seven games, so his absence shouldn't impact Miami's rotation.

  • Heat's Omer Yurtseven: Falls out of rotation

    Yurtseven (coach's decision) went unused off the bench Monday in the Heat's 104-99 loss to the Raptors.

    The return of Bam Adebayo (thumb) from a six-week absence was always expected to hurt Yurtseven, but head coach Erik Spoelstra's decision to drop the rookie from the rotation entirely was surprising. Rather than rolling with Yurtseven as the backup center to Adebayo, Spoelstra turned to Dewayne Dedmon (eight points, nine rebounds and three blocks in 16 minutes) to handle that role. Even though Yurtseven had turned in impressive averages of 11.6 points, 13.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 blocks over the past 14 games, he looks like a clear drop in 12- and 14-team leagues now that Adebayo is back in action.
