Dion Waiters    G  Heat

 

 

Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play on Thursday against the Raptors. He's coming along just fine and the team may not give him an MRI this week. As of Wednesday, he doesn't have an MRI scheduled, so maybe Waiters is more day-to-day. Josh Richardson is a solid add in standard leagues and dropped 14 points on Tuesday.

Hassan Whiteside (right hand laceration) is listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. Raptors. He cut his hand on Tuesday night and has said he wouldn't miss additional time. Whiteside looks healthy again and turned in averages of 21.8 points, 15.2 boards and 2.2 blocks in his last five games. The Raptors did shut him down last time with just 12 points and 14 boards back on Mar. 11.

Hassan Whiteside    C  Heat

 

 

Hassan Whiteside (hand) said that he "has the intent to play" in Thursday's game vs. the Raptors. It was widely assumed Whiteside would miss multiple games after receiving 13 stitches on his right hand Tuesday night. He left the arena with his hand heavily bandaged. However, Whiteside was working out in the weight room at the Heat's practice facility on Wednesday and told reports that he plans to play. We still haven't heard from a team official or coach Erik Spoelstra on the matter, so you'll obviously want to check back for updates.

Hassan Whiteside    C  Heat

 

 

Hassan Whiteside received 13 stitches between the middle and ring finger on his right hand Tuesday night and his status for Miami's game on Thursday is uncertain. "It’s in an awkward place in his hand," coach Erik Spoelstra said after the game. "We’ll know more tomorrow. Hopefully he’s going to be OK." Whiteside missed three games late in 2015 after needing 10 stitches in a very similar injury to his hand. "I know people are thinking ‘Is it the same as two years ago? Is it worse?’ We’ll see," said Spoelstra. Willie Reed will likely draw the start at center on Thursday if Whiteside can't play. James Johnson would also see an uptick in minutes.

Tyler Johnson    G  Heat

 

 

Tyler Johnson came off the bench and hit 7-of-17 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, six rebounds, four assists and five steals in 29 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Suns. He benefitted by playing the Suns but still put up a fantastic fantasy line tonight. He's rolling again, averaging 18 points, 3.7 boards, 3.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.3 3-pointers over his last three games. And with Dion Waiters out with an ankle injury, shouldn't be slowing down anytime soon.

Wayne Ellington    G  Heat

 

 

Wayne Ellington played 27 minutes and hit 4-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points, two assists and a steal on Tuesday. With Dion Waiters out indefinitely with an ankle injury, Josh Richardson is starting. But the Heat know that Ellington can hit open threes, and his minutes should see a bump as long as Waiters is out. If. you need 3-pointers, he might be the best pure shooter on your waiver wire and he's averaging 13 points and 3.4 3-pointers over this last five games.
