  • Heat's Dion Waiters: Unhappy with role since returning

    Waiters expressed displeasure with his playing time after Tuesday's loss to Milwaukee, the Miami Herald reports.

    Waiters used some coarse language with reporters after the game and went on to say: "I want to play. I've been patient long enough. What do I got to be patient for? Come on man. I've been patient. I think everybody knows that. It's time. What are we waiting for? If I'm out there, play me." Waiters saw just 12 minutes of action in Tuesday's blowout, which came on the heels of Saturday's game against Memphis, in which he was limited to 12 minutes. The veteran indicated that he hadn't spoken to coach Erik Spoelstra directly about the situation, but his comments Tuesday certainly won't go unheard. Since returning from a lengthy injury absence, Waiters is averaging 7.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 15.6 minutes across five contests.

  • Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Solid production in return

    Whiteside scored 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-5 FT) while adding eight rebounds, an assist and a block in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 124-86 loss to the Bucks.

    After missing Saturday's game due to illness, Whiteside looked OK in this one, tying Justise Winslow for the team lead in scoring -- although they were the only two Heat players to even reach double digits in the rout. Whiteside is averaging a double-double a game for the fifth straight season, so better rebounding numbers lie ahead, but he'll face a tough task on the glass against Andre Drummond and the Pistons on Friday.

  • Heat's Justise Winslow: Solid in loss to Bucks

    Winslow scored 19 points (8-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt) while adding five rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 124-86 loss to the Bucks.

    He tied Hassan Whiteside for the team lead in scoring on the night, but they were the only two Heat players to even reach double digits in the rout. Winslow continues to post strong numbers since taking on a full starter's workload in the absence of Goran Dragic (knee), averaging 16.6 points, 5.7 assists, 5.5 boards, 3.6 three-pointers and 1.5 steals in 30.3 minutes over the last 11 games.

  • Heat's Bam Adebayo: Returning to bench

    Adebayo will come off the bench Tuesday against the Bucks.

    Adebayo earned a start during the Heat's previous outing while Hassan Whiteside (illness) was out. As a reserve, Adebayo is averaging 7.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists and a combined 1.4 blocks/steals.

  • Heat's Josh Richardson: Says he will play Tuesday

    Richardson (knee) said he will play in Tuesday's game against the Bucks, Shandel Richardson of The Athletic reports.

    As expected, Richardson will give it a go Tuesday despite dealing with some knee tendinitis. Despite not going through practice Monday, there have been no reports of Richardson facing any sort of restriction. So for now, he should be a full go in Milwaukee.

  • Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Removed from injury report

    Whiteside (illness) is not on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    Whiteside missed Saturday's game against the Grizzlies due to an illness, but he's apparently feeling well enough to rejoin the fold for Tuesday's matchup against Milwaukee. The big man is averaging 12.7 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 26.0 minutes this season and should immediately reclaim his role in the starting lineup.

  • Heat's Josh Richardson: Expected to play through tendinitis

    Richardson didn't participate in Monday's practice due to knee tendinitis but is expected to play Tuesday at Milwaukee.

    Experiencing knee tendinitis after Sunday's contest, Richardson ultimately took Monday's practice off to rest and recover for Tuesday's game against the Bucks. The Tennessee product logged 36 minutes of action Sunday while scoring 14 points and dishing out nine assists.

  • Heat's Bam Adebayo: Ekes out double-double in start

    Adebayo scored 11 points (3-6 FG, 5-7 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 38 minutes during Saturday's 112-108 win over the Grizzlies.

    While it was hardly a dominant performance, Adebayo did record his fifth double-double of the season, and first in over a month, in his sixth start. Hassan Whiteside only missed this game due to an illness, however, and once he's 100 percent Adebayo will return to a bench role.

  • Heat's Justise Winslow: Leads way in win over Grizzlies

    Winslow scored a game-high 26 points (10-16 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds, four assists and a steal in 34 minutes during Saturday's 112-108 win over the Grizzlies.

    The 22-year-old continues to post strong numbers while handling point guard duties in the absence of Goran Dragic (knee), and Winslow's now averaging 16.4 points, 5.8 assists, 5.6 boards, 1.6 steals and 1.5 three-pointers over his last 10 games. Dragic is still a month or more away from making his return to the lineup, so Winslow's usage, and fantasy value, should remain high well into February.

  • Heat's Bam Adebayo: Starting Saturday

    Adebayo will get the start Saturday against the Grizzlies.

    Adebayo will start in place of Hassan Whiteside (illness). In five starts this year, Adebayo's averaging 12.4 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 29.2 minutes.

  • Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Out with illness

    Whiteside is listed as out for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies due to illness.

    Whiteside evidently picked up the sickness over the last day or so, as he looked logged 21 minutes in Thursday's matchup with Boston. This will be a big loss for the Heat, who will likely turn to Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk to pick up the slack at center in Whiteside's absence.
