Heat's Tyler Johnson: Not on Friday's injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (migraine) is not listed on the injury report for Friday's game against the Hornets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Johnson had been dealing with a migraine Wednesday that prevented him from playing against the Trail Blazers, but it looks like he has put the pain behind him and will return to the floor Friday in Charlotte. Wayne Ellington played 32 minutes off the bench Wednesday in Johnson's absence and scored 24 points, but he'll likely go back to splitting minutes with Johnson upon the guard's return Friday.

Heat's Justise Winslow: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winslow (knee) will not travel with the team for Friday's game against the Hornets, Andre Fernandez of The Miami Herald reports.

Winslow suffered a left knee strain in the first half of Wednesday's loss to the Trail Blazers, and with the Heat playing a back-to-back set Friday and Saturday, it is unlikely that the third-year forward returns to the floor before Monday. But, until the Heat can give an update on his exact timetable, consider Winslow day-to-day.

Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Ruled out Friday vs. Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whiteside (knee) took part in some on-court work Thursday, but has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hornets, Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Whiteside will be missing an eighth straight game Friday, though the fact that he's now doing some on-court work is encouraging for a return in the near future. He's expected to be reevaluated when the team returns home following Friday's contest, which is when we should get a more concrete timetable for his recovery. At this point, it wouldn't be surprising if Whiteside also missed Saturday's tilt with the Clippers. Kelly Olynyk should continue to start in his place and see an increased role, with Bam Adebayo seeing an uptick in minutes off the bench.

Heat's Wayne Ellington: Scores season-high 24 points in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington amassed 24 points (8-11 FG, 7-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two steals, and one block in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 102-95 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Ellington finished with a season high in scoring while matching his career high in made treys. The absence of Tyler Johnson (migraine) resulted in Ellington receiving extended run, and the ninth-year guard responded with his best effort of the campaign. If Johnson is forced to sit out of Friday's tilt with the Hornets, Ellington will likely be called on to play lots of minutes off the bench once again. But even if Johnson rejoins the rotation, Ellington was already averaging more minutes in December (23.4 per prior to Wednesday) than he saw in October (12.8) or November (22.3).

Heat's James Johnson: Nears triple-double in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson supplied 10 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 10 rebounds, and eight assists in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 102-95 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Johnson logged his second double-double of the season while handing out exactly eight dimes for the fourth time. The ninth-year power forward is contributing career-high averages in rebounding (5.3), assists (4.2), and three-point shooting percentage (34.3).
