  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Clears injury report

    Highsmith (hip) is available for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Hawks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Highsmith was one of six players on Miami's injury report for Tuesday, but the Heat will have their entire roster available. However, Highsmith -- who's played double-digit minutes just six times this season -- isn't expected to have a major role during Game 2.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: One of six players on injury report

    Highsmith is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 2 against Atlanta due to a strained left hip flexor.

    Highsmith was cleared to play in Game 1 on Sunday and ended up seeing five minutes of garbage-time action in the blowout victory. It's unclear why Miami is once again listing him on the injury report, but it would be a surprise if he's unavailable for Game 2.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Questionable for Game 1

    Highsmith is questionable for Sunday's Game 1 against the Hawks due to a hip injury, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Goes for 16 points Sunday

    Highsmith had 16 points (7-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block across 40 minutes during Sunday's 125-111 loss to the Magic.

    Highsmith hadn't played more than 16 minutes in any game this season but delivered a strong outing in the first NBA start of this career -- he ended as Miami's third-highest scorer. He took advantage of the opportunity due to the fact that Miami was resting several regulars, but he will return to a minimal role off the bench once the playoffs start this weekend.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Making first NBA start

    Highsmith will start Sunday's game against the Magic.

    With Miami resting several veterans, the starting five is a rag-tag bunch, consisting of Omer Yurtseven, Duncan Robinson, Highsmith, Victor Oladipo and Mychal Mulder. It will be the first career start for Highsmith, who hasn't played more than 16 minutes in any game this season.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Inks multi-year deal with Heat

    Highsmith and the Heat agreed to terms Monday on a three-year deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Highsmith had been with the Heat on a series of 10-day contracts, but he'll now stick around on a full NBA deal for at least the remainder of the 2021-22 season. It's technically a three-year contract, but Woj notes that it includes team options, so Highsmith will likely have to earn his way onto the roster again in 2022-23.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Planning to sign with Miami

    Highsmith agreed Wednesday with the Heat on a 10-day hardship exemption, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    The 25-year-old has been playing in the G League with the Delaware Blue Coats this season, but he'll get the chance to make his first NBA appearance since the 2018-19 campaign as he joins the shorthanded Heat. Unless Miami loses several more players to injuries or the COVID-19 health and safety protocols, however, Highsmith isn't expected to handle a major role with the Heat.
