  • Heat's Nikola Jovic: Suffers ankle injury

    Jovic was diagnosed with a minor left ankle sprain Thursday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

  • Heat's Nikola Jovic: Decent output in playoff exit

    Jovic ended with eight points (3-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and four assists over 28 minutes during Wednesday's 118-84 loss to the Celtics in Game 5 of the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

    Jovic was forced to embrace a bigger role in the second half of the season and was a permanent fixture in the starting unit since mid-February. While he had some strong performances here and there, he lacked consistency on a game-to-game basis, and he was unable to become a reliable offensive alternative when the Heat needed him, especially in games where they were shorthanded. It remains to be seen if Jovic will remain a regular starter for the Heat next season. but it's worth noting he averaged 9.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game across 33 starts since the beginning of February, counting both the regular season and the playoffs.

    Jovic has been forced to play a prominent role for the Heat over the last few weeks, but he has been up to the task this postseason, scoring in double digits and grabbing at least six rebounds in his three appearances during the current series against Boston. Jovic should remain in the starting lineup for Game 4 on Monday. He's averaging 12.0 points and 7.7 rebounds in the first three games of the series.

    Jovic was efficient and continues to embrace the starting role, as he's now scored in double digits in four of his last six appearances. This was just the second time he surpassed the 20-point mark. While he's not expected to do it regularly in the future, his fantasy upside has increased considerably now that he's a regular member of the first unit.

  • Heat's Nikola Jovic: Suffers knee contusion

    Jovic sustained a right knee contusion and wasn't able to return to Friday's 142-82 win over the Trail Blazers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. He finished with five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 17 minutes.

    Jovic tried to play a few possessions after he picked up the injury, but he appeared to be uncomfortable. Miami had a big lead when Jovic left the game, so that may have factored into the club's decision to hold him out for the ret of the night. Jovic should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Wizards.
