  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Steps up in starting lineup

    Jaquez notched 16 points (8-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 114-94 loss to Boston in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

    Jaquez once again stepped up for Miami while earning another starting nod in place of the injured Jimmy Butler (knee), handing out a team-high-tying assist total while ending as one of three Heat players with 15 or more points. Jaquez started in 20 games during the regular season, posting 15 or more points in 12 of those starts.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Shines in starting role

    Jaquez posted 21 points (8-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and six assists across 35 minutes during Friday's 112-91 Play-In Game win over the Bulls.

    Jaquez had big shoes to fill, as he entered the starting lineup in place of Jimmy Butler (knee), but he didn't disappoint. Friday marked his second time over the last four games scoring 20 or more points, and he did so efficiently. Jaquez also packed the stat sheet with an impressive effort on the glass and as a distributor. Butler is expected to miss multiple weeks, so the Heat will need to lean on the rookie forward entering the team's opening-round series against Boston.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Joins starting five

    Jaquez is starting Friday's Play-In Game against the Bulls.

    Jaquez will take the place of Jimmy Butler, who is expected to miss several weeks with an MCL sprain. While Butler is surely a big loss for the Heat, Jaquez has shown that he can produce while playing with the first unit, scoring in double figures in 16 of 20 starts during the regular season.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Decent stat line in loss

    Jaquez closed Wednesday's 105-104 Play-In Game loss to the 76ers with 15 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 22 minutes.

    Jaquez looked good despite coming off the bench and was one of Miami's top contributors on offense. He's widely expected to move into the starting lineup for Friday's matchup against the Bulls due to the absence of Jimmy Butler (knee), and that would translate into an uptick in his usage rate.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Shines off bench in Sunday win

    Jaquez racked up 18 points (6-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal over 32 minutes during Sunday's 118-103 win over Toronto.

    Jaquez thrived in a starting role earlier this season, and while he had some problems adjusting to a bench role as the campaign progressed, there's no question the rookie out of UCLA was one of the league's best first-year players while also ending the season on a strong note. Jaquez should see decent minutes off the bench when the Heat take on the 76ers in the Play-In Tournament on Wednesday.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Sniffs double-double

    Jaquez posted 20 points (7-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, nine assists, one block and two steals across 32 minutes during Friday's 125-103 victory over the Raptors.

    Jaquez registered his ninth outing with 20 or more points this season, and while he has been losing his place in head coach Erik Spoelstra's rotation compared to earlier in the campaign, he's still capable of putting up solid numbers in any given game. Jaquez has averaged just 8.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game over his last 10 appearances, however, so he doesn't carry a lot of upside into the regular-season finale against the Raptors on Sunday.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Provides spark off bench

    Jaquez accumulated 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and two steals over 19 minutes during Friday's 119-104 win over the Rockets.

    Jaquez and Tyler Herro combined for 29 points off Miami's bench during Friday's win over Houston. The rookie Jaquez seemed to bust out of his shooting slump, as he is converting just 25.9 percent of his 2.7 three-point attempts per contest over his last 10 appearances.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Good to go against Portland

    Jaquez (ankle) is available for Friday's game versus the Trail Blazers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Jaquez has been upgraded from questionable to available Friday despite dealing with an ankle injury. However, the return of Jimmy Butler will likely send the rookie forward back to the bench.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Dealing with minor ankle issue

    Jaquez is probable for Friday's game against Portland due to an ankle injury, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Jaquez continues to manage knee and ankle injuries, but he's missed just one game since the beginning of February. Over his last 26 appearances (five starts), Jaquez has averaged 9.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 27.8 minutes per game.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Offers little in spot start

    Jaquez totaled 12 points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 26 minutes during Tuesday's 113-92 loss to the Warriors.

    Jaquez returned from a knee injury, sliding into the starting lineup after Jimmy Butler was ruled out due to an illness. Despite the promotion, Jaquez failed to reach great heights, something that has become commonplace over the past few weeks. At best, managers should view him as a viable streaming consideration, if and when the schedule dictates.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Set to start Tuesday

    Jaquez (knee) is available and will start Tuesday's game versus the Warriors, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Jaquez has been upgraded from questionable to available despite dealing with left knee soreness and will replace Jimmy Butler (illness) in the starting lineup. Jaquez is averaging 15.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 33.6 minutes across his previous 10 starts this season.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Iffy for Tuesday

    Jaquez (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

    Jaquez may miss a second straight game due to left knee soreness. Kevin Love (heel) is also questionable, so if both forwards are available, Haywood Highsmith and Nikola Jovic would likely see decreased playing time.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Officially out Sunday

    Jaquez is out Sunday versus Cleveland due to left knee and ankle discomfort, Tim Reynolds of Associated Press reports.

    With Jimmy Butler returning from a two-game absence to play in both of the Heat's last two contests, Jaquez has recently moved back to the bench, logging 31- and 14-minute workloads in a win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday and a loss to the Pelicans on Friday. The injury might have had something to do with Jaquez's lighter minutes count versus the Pelicans, and he'll now be forced to the sideline for the first time since Jan. 25. Consider Jaquez day-to-day ahead of the Heat's next game Tuesday versus the Warriors.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Iffy for Sunday

    Jaquez has been given a questionable tag ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Cavaliers due to both knee and ankle issues, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    This is Jaquez's first time popping up on Miami's injury report with these specific injuries. His status will presumably depend on how he is feeling after testing things out during pregame warmups. The rookie has averaged 9.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.3 blocks and 0.8 triples across 27.9 minutes in March. Should he ultimately not get the green light, Haywood Highsmith and Nikola Jovic could see increased minutes.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Won't start Wednesday

    Jaquez will head to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

    Jaquez is being replaced by Jimmy Butler in the starting unit for Wednesday's game, so his value will take a bit of a hit with the demotion to the second unit. The Heat will start Butler, Patty Mills, Terry Rozier, Bam Adebayo and Thomas Bryant on Wednesday evening.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Solid showing in spot start

    Jaquez amassed 15 points (6-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 35 minutes during Sunday's 104-101 win over Detroit.

    With Jimmy Butler (foot) sidelined, Jaquez got his first start since Feb. 26 and turned in a solid performance. The rookie forward hasn't been consistent of late -- he scored 16 total points over the prior three games combined -- but he's maintained a significant role in the Miami rotation. Over 12 games since the All-Star break, Jaquez is averaging 11.3 points, 4.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.8 threes in 29.2 minutes a contest while shooting 50.5 percent from the floor.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Gets starting nod Sunday

    Jaquez will start Sunday's game against the Pistons.

    With Jimmy Butler (foot) and Nikola Jovic (hamstring) sidelined, Jaquez and Haywood Highsmith will join the starting lineup. As a starter this season (17 games), Jaquez has averaged 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.4 steals in 32.9 minutes per game.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Solid output off bench Friday

    Jaquez recorded 25 points (10-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 31 minutes during Friday's 107-100 loss to the Thunder.

    Jaquez has found ways to produce both as a starter and off the bench, and he's been thriving in that latter role in recent weeks. He's scored in double digits in each of his last four outings with the second unit, and this 25-point performance was his best scoring performance when coming off the bench this season. Jaquez is averaging 11.7 points per game on the campaign when deployed with the second unit.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Finds rhythm from outside

    Jaquez amassed 13 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 28 minutes during Thursday's 114-108 loss to the Mavericks.

    It's the first time in nearly two months that Jaquez has drained multiple three-pointers, as his last such performance came Jan. 10 against the Thunder. The rookie forward has been able to contribute despite his recent shooting woes from long distance, and over the last 12 games, he's averaging 11.0 points, 4.7 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 threes in 28.8 minutes a contest.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Rejoins second unit

    Jaquez will come off the bench for Tuesday's game versus Portland, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    No surprises here, as Jimmy Butler is returning from his one-game suspension. Jaquez made the most of his fill-in start Monday versus the Kings, producing 26 points (12-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and three steals across 38 minutes.
