Heat's Dion Waiters: Plays 11 minutes in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters had four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 11 minutes during Thursday's 107-98 win over the Magic.

Waiters returned to the lineup after being away from the team for a few days for personal reasons. Whether or not he sees significant run in Friday's preseason finale, Waiters could be a sneaky cheap option in daily leagues for next Wednesday's regular season opener against a young and inexperienced Grizzlies team.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters (personal) has returned to South Florida but won't play in Monday's preseason game against the Hawks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Waiters has been away from the team due to a personal issue, and while he's back in town, he won't take the court Monday evening. His next opportunity to fun the floor will come Thursday against Orlando.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Expected to return soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters (personal) is expected to return to the team soon and could play Monday against Atlanta, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

While Waiters remains away from the team, he'll return soon and has an outside chance of playing Monday. If he's unable to make it back, look for Tyler Herro and Dunan Robinson to continue to see boosted minutes.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Still not with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters (personal) remains away from the team, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Heat haven't said much about the situation, but Waiters has now been away from the team for several days, and it's unclear if he'll be available for Monday's exhibition matchup against the Hawks. For what it's worth, however, coach Erik Spoelstra said he expects Waiters to play.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Remains away from team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters missed Saturday's practice due to a personal issue, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Waiters has been forced to miss the past two Heat practices due to a personal issue. There's a chance Waiters could miss Monday's tilt with the Hawks, however, since the issue isn't related to his role, there shouldn't be any long-term fantasy ramifications related to the absence.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Misses practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters did not practice Friday due to a personal matter, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The veteran guard is dealing with a personal matter and should be considered day-to-day until further notice. Waiters had 19 points and four assists in Wednesday's preseason win over Charlotte.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Leads way in preseason win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters totaled 19 points (7-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists and a steal in 16 minutes during Wednesday's win over Charlotte.

Waiters was electric Wednesday, leading the team in points and drilling 80 percent of his shots from behind the arc. The veteran guard will hope to bounce back from an injury-plagued 2018-19 campaign in which he averaged 12.0 points, 2.8 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 25.9 minutes per game across 44 contests. Waiters hasn't played more than 46 games in any of his past three seasons, so, while he has the proven ability to score in bunches, he likely can't be considered more than a late-round addition.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Coming off bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters will come off the bench Tuesday against the 76ers, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

Coach Erik Spoelstra is giving Dwyane Wade the start in what will be his final home game. Waiters gets pushed to the bench as a result.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Totals 17 points Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters collected 17 points (6-16 FG, 5-12 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes in Sunday's 117-109 loss to the Raptors.

Waiters made six shots on Sunday, five of them being behind the arc, which is where he was shooting from more often than not. His inefficiency inside and plethora of missed threes left more to be desired, especially in a critical game that went to overtime.

April 6, 2019 12:40 AM
Heat's Dion Waiters: Scores 22 points in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters scored 22 points (8-17 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 0-2 FT) in 33 minutes during Friday's 111-109 loss to the Timberwolves.

Waiters had been considered probable after having a precautionary MRI on his left knee following Wednesday's loss to the Celtics. While his ailing knee didn't stop him from matching his season high in made threes while scoring 20-plus points for the fourth time in the last six games, Waiters didn't contribute in any of the other categories. With the Heat in need of a strong finish in order to make the playoffs, expect Waiters to remain as aggressive as ever across the final three regular season matchups.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Available to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters (knee) is available to play in Friday's contest at Minnesota, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Waiters had an MRI done on his left knee after Wednesday's loss to Boston but the scan revealed nothing of any concern. It's unknown weather or not Waiters may have felt a tweak in his knee or is just experience knee soreness. Nevertheless, Waiters will be fully ready to help the Heat make a playoff push down the stretch in the next coming days.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Probable for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters (knee) is considered probable for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

Waiters had a precautionary MRI on his left knee following Wednesday's loss to Boston, but the scan showed nothing of concern. The veteran may still be dealing with some soreness Friday, but all indications are that he'll be on the floor as the Heat continue to push for a playoff spot.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Steers Heat to victory Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters finished with 28 points 11-23 FG, 6-16 3Pt), six assists,s three rebounds, two steals, and one block in 37 minutes during Saturday's 100-92 victory over the Knicks.

Waiters topped out with a season-high 28 points in Saturday's victory, helping the Heat regain a spot in the top-eight. Waiters has had sneaky value over the past few weeks but is still only rostered in 30 percent of all leagues. With only a few games left to round out the season, the Heat are going to need to win as many as they can and it would appear Waiters is going to continue to see significant playing time all the way to the finish line.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Reaches new season high in points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters amassed a season-high 26 points (10-18 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go with two assists, one rebound and one steal in 29 minutes Tuesday in the Heat's 104-99 loss to the Magic.

The ample scoring and three-point production was nice, but Waiters' lagging numbers in nearly every other category illustrates his shortcomings as a fantasy option when his shot isn't falling. Prior to Tuesday, Waiters hadn't been particularly efficient in March, converting at just a 41.5 percent clip from the field.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Scores 15 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters generated 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes Sunday against Toronto.

Waiters bounced back after a rough two-game stretch, topping double-digits for the 13th time this year. When he's shooting the ball well, Waiters is a decent volume-scoring based option for standard formats, however he is inconsistent and does little outside of scoring the ball.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Exhibits above-average production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters accumulated 14 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block over 25 minutes Monday against Atlanta.

Waiters' scoring has been sporadic of late, as he's been held to seven points or fewer in two of his last five games. He did manage to find success Monday, however, converting on 55.6 percent of his field goals while tallying at least one rebound, assist, block and steal. Waiters will enter Wednesday's clash with Charlotte with a 10.3 ppg average through 24 contests this season.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Scores 17 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters totaled 17 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and five assists over 33 minutes in the Heat's loss to the Pistons on Saturday.

Waiters has been a valuable fantasy asset since joining the starting five. In five starts prior to tonight, Waiters has averaged 17.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per night.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Puts up 18 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters tallied 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, an assist and three steals across 30 minutes Thursday against Philadelphia.

Waiters continues to produce at a high level, notching his fifth straight double-digit scoring output. He struggled from downtown on the night (28.6 percent), but he's shooting an impressive 40.4 percent from three through eight games in February. However, with Goran Dragic (knee) nearing a return to the court, Waiters' time with the first unit appears to be coming to an end.

February 14, 2019 01:16 AM
Heat's Dion Waiters: Scores 20 points in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters accumulated 20 points (7-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 112-101 win over the Mavericks.

Waiters has recorded at least 20 points twice in the last three games and reached double figures in four straight. He amassed double-digit points three times through his first 14 appearances this season while never seeing more than 29 minutes, since which he has earned 30-plus minutes in each of the last four matchups. Still, with Goran Dragic (knee) nearing his return to the lineup, it's likely Waiters will soon be shifting back into a reserve role.

February 12, 2019 12:04 AM
Heat's Dion Waiters: Quiet night in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters totaled 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six assists, and three rebounds in 30 minutes during Monday's 103-87 loss to Denver.

Waiters scored 11 points Monday, attempting just nine field-goals in 30 minutes. The playing time was there despite the big loss and it appears as though he is going to be a significant part of the rotation moving forward. The return of Goran Dragic (knee) could impact Waiters but until then he is worth a look if you need points and threes.
