Heat's James Johnson: Officially out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (illness) has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Magic, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

Johnson will be traveling with the Heat to Orlando, which provides some optimism that a return may not be too far off. Still, with Miami heading into a back-to-back to start the year, they'll keep Johnson out to limit his workload. There's also a decent chance Johnson is held out Thursday, though confirmation on that likely won't come until game day. With Justise Winslow (hamstring) also expected to sit out, the likes of Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk should get big minutes in the frontcourt.

Heat's Justise Winslow: Unlikely to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winslow (hamstring) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Magic, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Winslow was limited at practice earlier in the week with a hamstring issue, which is apparently giving him enough discomfort to be ruled doubtful for the opener. The Heat are heading into a back-to-back set to open the year, so there's a chance Winslow misses both of those contests if the Heat opt to take a cautious approach with him. In addition to Winslow, James Johnson (abdomen) is expected to sit out as well, which should leave the Heat without some key frontcourt pieces. Look for guys like Kelly Olynyk and Bam Adebayo to see an uptick in workload for the time being.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Won't travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters (ankle) will not travel with the team and is slated to miss the first two regular-season games of 2018, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Waiters will remain in Miami while the rest of the team travels to Orlando and Washington to open the 2018 campaign. He's been slowly ramping up his basketball activities and figures to be questionable for Saturday's contest against Charlotte.

Heat's Wayne Ellington: Expected to miss Wednesday's opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington (ankle) will likely be ruled out for Wednesday's game agaisnt Orlando, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Ellington managed to make it through a full day of practice Monday, but it appears he's still not healthy enough to see game action. His next chance to take the court will come Thursday against Washington, although it's unclear whether he'll be ready.

Heat's James Johnson: Doubtful for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (illness) will travel with the Heat for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Magic, but is not expected to play, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Johnson missed the entire preseason due to a sports hernia and is also working through an illness, so he likely needs more time to work his way back to full strength. The big man also needs to get his legs under him and make sure his conditioning is up to par, so that should keep him out for at least Wednesday's contest. However, with the Heat heading into a back-to-back set, there's certainly a chance Johnson is also held out Thursday. All that said, a return doesn't appear to be too far off and Johnson could push for a starting role once he's a full go.
