Heat's Meyers Leonard: Back to bench for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard will come off the bench for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Lakers.

With Bam Adebayo (neck) back in the starting lineup, Leonard will head back to the bench. It's unclear if he'll see much, if any, time on the court. Leonard played just 22 combined minutes in the two games that Adebayo was sidelined.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Limited court time despite start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard notched seven points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and one assist in nine minutes during Friday's 124-114 loss against the Lakers in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Leonard got the starting nod over Bam Adebayo (neck) at center and, while he was effective in a limited role, he only saw nine minutes of action -- Erik Spoelstra favored Kelly Olynyk higher, and the Canada native responded with a 24-point performance in 37 minutes off the bench. Leonard might remain as the starter in Game 3 if Adebayo can't recover but, even if that scenario, he might be limited to a secondary role based on what happened in Game 2.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Gets starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard will draw the start at center in Friday's Game 2 versus the Lakers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

The Heat will turn to Leonard, who has only played nine minutes during the entire Heat playoff run, at center due to Bam Adebayo's (shoulder) absence. The team presumably wants to keep Kelly Olynyk with the second unit. It remains to be seen what type of minutes Leonard will see, but the big man will no doubt be a popular DFS play.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Remains out of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard did not play in Thursday's Game 2 against Indiana.

Leonard started every game from Oct. 23 through Feb. 3, but after an ankle injury cost him 16 games around the All-Star break, he never regained his spot in the rotation. The big man appeared in just two of Miami's seeding games, and he's been a DNP-CD in each of the team's first two playoff contests.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Coming off bench in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard will come off the bench during Saturday's restart opener against the Nuggets, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

Leonard will play his first game since Feb. 3, as he missed the final 16 games before the hiatus due to a significant ankle injury. Coach Erik Spoelstra is opting to start Jae Crowder in his place for the first game of the restart. It will be the first time all season that Leonard is coming off the pine.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Ready to return from ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (ankle) indicated last week in an Instagram interview that he'll be ready to play if or when the NBA season resumes, Shandel Richardson of SI.com reports. "I'm feeling much, much better," Leonard said. "Obviously, I had an injury there right before the season was suspended. And it was bad. I think most people were aware of that."

Leonard missed the Heat's final 16 games before the NBA suspended its season March 12, but he'll have the benefit of more than three months of recovery time from the sprained left ankle by the time play resumes. Prior to getting hurt, Leonard had served as the Heat's starting power forward, but expect him to hold a smaller role upon returning with Miami having added Jae Crowder and Andre Iguodala to the roster since that time.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Nearly over ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (ankle) said Thursday that he's been able to do footwork and agility work at home, and he estimated that he's about 90 percent healthy, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Leonard has been sidelined nearly two months with a fairly serious left ankle sprain, but he looks to have just about moved past the injury. While he acknowledged that he's "not there yet" in terms of basketball shape, Leonard indicated that he expects to be ready to go whenever the NBA season resumes. He'd started in each of his first 49 appearances with the Heat this season, but he'll likely have to settle for a smaller role, as Miami added two more forwards (Jae Crowder and Andre Iguodala) to the rotation after Leonard got hurt.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (ankle) will remain out Wednesday against the Hornets.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Out of walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (ankle) has shed his walking boot but remains without a timeline for return, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

While the fact that he's no longer in a boot is a positive sign, Leonard's absence will likely extend for at least another week, as he's yet to return to practice. The team will likely continue to provide updates on his status as he hits each benchmark in his recovery process.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Out again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game at Cleveland, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

Leonard will be sidelined for the eighth consecutive game due to the left ankle injury. The Heat haven't indicated that Leonard has resumed any on-court work since injuring his left knee earlier this month, so he looks poised to miss additional time beyond Monday. Miami will likely rely on a combination of Kelly Olynyk, Jae Crowder and Derrick Jones to fill minutes at power forward until Leonard is cleared to play again.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Out again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (ankle) will not play in Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Leonard's absence will mark his seventh consecutive game missed due to an ankle injury. He remains without an official timetable for a return, so he should remains day-to-day as a result. His next chance to play will come Monday against the Cavaliers.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Officially out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (ankle) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against Atlanta.

There was never much optimism that Leonard would be available, but the Heat officially clarified his status Thursday morning, noting that the big man is "without a timetable" to return from his sprained left ankle. Considering the phrasing, it's rather likely Leonard will miss additional time beyond Thursday. The Heat play host to the Cavaliers on Saturday before traveling to Cleveland for a rematch Monday.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Return doubtful right after break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (ankle) is unlikely to make his return immediately following the All-Star break, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

According to coach Erik Spoelstra, it would take "superhuman healing" for Leonard to be available right after the break. It seems likely that Leonard will be targeting the last week of February for a return, but it's possible his absence slides into March.

Heat's Meyers Leonard: Out through All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (ankle) will not play during the Heat's five-game road trip prior to the All-Star break, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Leonard sprained his left ankle during Monday's win over the Sixers and will remain sidelined through the All-Star break as a result. It remains to be seen whether Leonard will be ready to return once play resumes -- Feb. 20 for the Heat -- following the break. In the meantime, some combination of Kelly Olynyk and James Johnson likely will help fill in for Leonard.
