Dedmon had 19 points (8-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and two assists across 21 minutes in Monday's Game 2 loss to Milwaukee.
The Heat were thoroughly drubbed from start to finish, but Dedmon stood out as perhaps the lone bright spot. The veteran big man did all he could to keep Miami in the game in the first quarter, and he continued to play well in the second half despite his team's consistent, 20-plus-point deficit. Dedmon has given Miami good minutes off the bench since signing in April, but he typically plays in the 12-to-15-minute range, so Monday's performance was an outlier due to the blowout.
Dedmon scored 18 points (7-8 FG, 4-5 FT) with nine rebounds and one block in a 116-111 victory over the Spurs on Wednesday.
Dedmon was extremely efficient in his 15 minutes of action, just missing his second double-double of the season. The backup center has averaged 8.4 points (on 74.3 percent shooting from the field) and 5.9 rebounds in his eight games with Miami this season. Despite the big game, Dedmon doesn't see enough opportunities to have much value in most fantasy leagues.
Dedmon (COVID-19 protocols) is available for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Dedmon didn't initially travel to Texas with the Heat, but he'll join the team ahead of Wednesday's matchup. The 31-year-old has averaged 11.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in 17.0 minutes per game across his past two appearances.
Dedmon is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs due to the league's health and safety protocols, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Given the questionable designation, it's likely that Dedmon, himself, did not test positive for the virus, but he did not make the initial trip to Texas with the team. However, Winderman notes that if he's cleared through the league's protocols, there's a chance Dedmon could meet the team in San Antonio on Wednesday.
Dedmon had 10 points (1-1 FG, 8-8 FT) and 10 rebounds in Sunday's win over the Nets.
Dedmon was able to take advantage of the Nets' lack of size inside, working his way to the free throw line eight times and drilling each of those attempts. The veteran center may have a chance to establish himself as the primary backup to Bam Adebayo going forward, as rookie Precious Achiuwa was a DNP-CD on Sunday.
Dedmon will not make his Heat debut Thursday against the Lakers, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
Dedmon officially joined the Heat and completed all of the necessary tests Thursday, but he'll be held out, as he hasn't yet had a chance to get acclimated with his new team. Look for the veteran big man to see his first action with Miami as soon as Sunday's game in Portland.
Dedmon is available to play Thursday against the Lakers after clearing health protocols, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Dedmon's signing with the Heat was made official Thursday, but he's already available to play after clearing health and safety protocols. Though he's available, it would be relatively surprising to see Dedmon immediately crack the rotation after just joining the team.
Dedmon officially signed with the Heat on Thursday.
The transaction was reported earlier in the week, but it's now finalized and the veteran big man should join the team in short order. Dedmon likely won't play a significant role in Miami, but he could push rookie Precious Achiuwa for some minutes off the bench behind Bam Adebayo.
Dedmon is expected to sign with the Heat, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Dedmon was traded from the Hawks to the Pistons during the offseason, but Detroit opted to waive the veteran. He's been a free agent since. Assuming he joins Miami, he would be the team's only true backup center (not counting Udonis Haslem). That could afford Dedmon minutes in the low-to-mid 10s. From a fantasy perspective, he can probably still be ignored aside from extremely deep formats.
Detroit intends to waive Dedmon once the trade agreed to Thursday with the Hawks becomes official, Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports reports.
The trade between the two teams was essentially an exchange of burdensome contracts, as Atlanta took back Tony Snell (due $12.18 million in 2020-21) while Detroit picked up Dedmon (due $26.6 million through 2021-22). Fortunately for Detroit, only $1 million of the money owed to Dedmon is guaranteed, so cutting him won't be too costly. Once he reaches free agency, Dedmon's outside shooting and shot-blocking abilities should be enough for him to find work elsewhere as a reserve center.
Dedmon was traded to Detroit on Thursday in exchange for Tony Snell and Khyri Thomas, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Dedmon began last season in Sacramento before being traded back to Atlanta at the deadline. The Hawks will now send him north to Detroit, though it's unclear if the Pistons plan to keep the veteran big man. In 44 total appearances last season, Dedmon averaged 5.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game.
Dedmon finished with 14 points (6-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine boards, two assists and three blocks in 28 minutes of a 143-138 double-overtime win against the Hornets on Monday.
Dedmon saw the fewest minutes of all the Hawks' starters, but that didn't stop him from approaching a double-double. In three games since returning from a four-game absence, he's averaged 10.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.0 blocks.
Dedmon (elbow) will be available for Friday's game at Washington, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dedmon was considered probable for Friday's contest, and he'll indeed be suiting up after a four-game absence. The 30-year-old started the previous four games at center before picking up the elbow injury and figures to rejoint he starting five versus the Wizards.
Dedmon (elbow) is expected to play in Friday's game against Washington, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.
Hawks GM Travis Schlenk said Tuesday that the team "fully expects" to have Dedmon available Friday, which will come on the heels of three full days off. The veteran was able to get shots up at shootaround Monday morning, and while he didn't play in the night's loss to Memphis, his sore right elbow appears to be nearing full strength. Prior to the injury, Dedmon had started the previous four games at center.
Dedmon (elbow) was able to take part in some minor shooting drills during Monday's shootaround, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dedmon's status for Monday's tilt with Memphis hasn't changed, though his participation in shootaround bodes well for his chances of making a return Friday against Washington. Look for another update on his status to come later in the week.
Dedmon (elbow) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Dedmon will be sidelined for a fourth straight game while he recovers from a non-surgical procedure on his sore right elbow. After Monday, the Hawks will have three days off before returning to action Friday in Washington, so Dedmon could be ready to go for that contest if he's able to take part in practice in between those games.
Dedmon (elbow) underwent a non-surgical procedure Thursday to address right elbow pain. He will miss the Hawks' next three games and be re-evaluated Monday.
Dedmon missed Wednesday's loss to Orlando due to the issue, and it's apparently significant enough to warrant a procedure. In his three-game absence, Bruno Fernando should see extra minutes. He drew the start Wednesday, posting 10 points, nine rebounds, one assist and one steal across 22 minutes.
Dedmon (elbow) will not play Wednesday against the Magic, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dedmon is dealing with some right elbow pain and will miss his first game since joining the Hawks as a result. In his absence, Bruno Fernando is expected to start at center.
Dedmon (elbow) has been downgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.
Dedmon is dealing with some right elbow pain, and it's possible he'll miss his first game since joining the Hawks. If that ends up being the case, we could see extra minutes from Bruno Fernando and Damian Jones.
Dedmon is probable for Wednesday's matchup against the Magic due to right elbow pain, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
This is the first report of an injury for the center, as Dedmon posted five points and three rebounds in 14 minutes during Monday's loss against Philadelphia. Dedmon's right elbow pain doesn't appear to be too severe however, as the former USC Trojan will presumably take the floor Wednesday.
