Winslow finished with a season-high 14 points (5-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one steal across 37 minutes during Wednesday's 126-115 win over the Suns.
Winslow has started the year slowly, averaging 6.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 23.2 minutes per game through the Heat's first 10 contests. He found his footing Wednesday, however, scoring efficiently and having a solid all-around performance. That said, the third-year man can probably still be ignored in the majority of fantasy formats until he proves he can be productive on a consistent basis.
Winslow finished with two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal across 17 minutes during Sunday's 104-101 win over the Clippers.
Despite drawing the start, Winslow played just 17 minutes -- his second-lowest total of the year. The third-year player was averaging only 6.9 points and 5.5 rebounds per game coming into Saturday's contests -- totals that will dip after the performance. He played just 18 games last year while dealing with injury, so it's possible he's struggling to get back into form. That said, he averaged 6.5 points and 5.2 rebounds across 28.6 minutes per game in his rookie season, so his work so far this year isn't unusually poor.
Winslow will draw the start for Sunday's game against the Clippers.
Dion Waiters is not with the team Sunday following the recent birth of his daughter, which allows Winslow to pick up his first start of the season. Winslow has averaged 23.1 minutes to start the 2017-18 campaign, but should see a temporary spike in playing time while working with the top unit.
Winslow went for 10 points (5-5 FG), eight rebounds, and two assists in 27 minutes during Monday's 125-122 overtime loss to the Timberwolves.
Winslow matched his season high in scoring while seeing his most minutes thus far through the first six tilts. The third-year forward has been solid, albeit in a reserve role, as his lack of outside shooting ability makes it tough for coach Erik Spoelstra to fit him into some lineups. With that being said, if Winslow continues to play at a high level, Spoelstra will be forced to find him more time.
Winslow recently indicated that he expects to come off the bench to start the season, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.
After undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder back in January, Winslow has slowly worked himself back into game shape and has reportedly shed between 12-to-15 pounds. With Rodney McGruder set to miss at least the next three months with a stress fracture in his leg, Winslow appeared to be one of the top candidates to take his spot in the starting lineup, though Winslow himself now believes he'll start the year coming off the bench. "[Spoelstra] hasn't talked to anyone really about Rodney or who is going to start," Winslow said. "But my prediction is I'll probably be in the second unit just to start the season." If that is the case, that would likely mean some sort of three-guard lineup to start the year, with Josh Richardson being one of the top candidates to start. That being said, McGruder's absence still means more minutes are going to be available for Winslow, and he could eventually be promoted to the top unit with a strong start to the season in a bench role. Either way, look for Winslow to have a large workload right out of the gate.
