Tyler Johnson    G  Heat

 

 

Tyler Johnson (ankle) will not play Wednesday vs. the Bucks, as expected. "He is feeling better. We did not get an MRI, it is just an ankle sprain at this point," said head coach Erik Spoelstra of Johnson. "We will continue to treat and evaluate him." It'll be interesting to see who Miami brings into the starting five with Johnson out, but Wayne Ellington figures to be the primary beneficiary here in terms of minutes. Johnson doesn't appear to be dealing with anything serious, but he could also miss Friday's game in Brooklyn with it being the first of a back-to-back set.

Tyler Johnson    SG  Heat

 

 

Johnson (ankle) will be sidelined for Wednesday's contest against the Bucks. As expected, Johnson will miss Wednesday's tilt against Milwaukee after spraining his left ankle during Monday's loss to the Spurs. In his stead, Wayne Ellington, Josh Richardson and Derrick Jones are all candidates to see expanded roles.

Derrick Walton    PG  Heat

 

 

Walton was recalled from the G-League's Sioux Falls Skyforce on Wednesday. Walton has spent most of the season in the G-League, getting some run at the NBA level in late December while the Heat dealt with a myriad of injuries. With Tyler Johnson (ankle) doubtful for Wednesday's contest, it seems possible Walton will see time on the floor.

Derrick Walton Jr.    G  Heat

 

 

Derrick Walton Jr. has been recalled from the G-League. He could get into the rotation tonight with Tyler Johnson (ankle) not expected to play, but he hasn't done enough this season to warrant any attention in fantasy hoops.

Tyler Johnson    G  Heat

 

 

Tyler Johnson (ankle) will not be required to undergo an MRI, but he is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. Milwaukee. Johnson could miss a few games, but the fact that he's avoiding an MRI suggests he's not dealing with anything too serious. We should get official confirmation on his status following Wednesday's shootaround, and if he's out, Wayne Ellington could see heavy minutes as a starter. Stay tuned.

Tyler Johnson    SG  Heat

 

 

Johnson (ankle) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Johnson suffered a sprained left ankle in Monday's loss to the Spurs, and it looks like he'll have to be sidelined for at least one contest as a result. X-rays on Johnson's ankle came back clean and there is no plan for an MRI, so there doesn't appear to be much concern regarding the injury. In Johnson's likely absence Wednesday, both Wayne Ellington and Justise Winslow should see extended minutes on the wing, with one expected to get the start in Milwaukee.

Hassan Whiteside    C  Heat

 

 

Whiteside finished Monday's 119-111 loss to the Bulls with nine points (3-7 FG, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 20 minutes. Though he's suited up for the Heat's last 10 games following a month-long absence due to a knee injury, Whiteside has exceeded 30 minutes just once, with head coach Erik Spoelstra regularly relying on Kelly Olynyk and rookie Bam Adebayo to play center down the stretch in contests. Whiteside, who didn't return to Monday's game after checking out with 5:52 remaining in the third quarter, was a game-worst minus-20 while he was on the floor, making it difficult to quibble with Spoelstra's decision after the team was able to trim a 19-point deficit to as little as five while the star center was on the pine. With Olynyk and Adebayo both faring well in their extended opportunities of late, Whiteside may continue to remain a spectator late in games, limiting the latter's nightly upside in DFS contests.

Tyler Johnson    G  Heat

 

 

The Heat will likely be without Tyler Johnson (ankle) "for at least the short term," according to Heat reporter Tom D'Angelo. It was initially feared the Johnson had sustained a serious injury when he fell to the ground clutching his knee on Monday. However, Johnson is dealing with a sprained ankle. Coach Erik Spoelstra said everybody, including Johnson, was "relieved" when hearing the initial diagnoses. We should have a further update by Tuesday afternoon. If Johnson is unable to play Wednesday, Goran Dragic, Josh Richardson and Wayne Ellington would see an uptick in playing time.

Tyler Johnson    G  Heat

 

 

Updating a previous report, there is currently no MRI scheduled for Tyler Johnson (ankle). The Heat want to wait and see how he feels tomorrow morning before going through with the MRI, but the fact that they're even waiting to make that decision is a very positive sign. While he grabbed at his knee after the injury, after being examined in the locker room they determined he's dealing with a sprained left ankle, so it seems like he's avoided a serious injury. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

Goran Dragic    G  Heat

 

 

Goran Dragic scored 22 points and hit 7-of-17 shots and 8-of-9 free throws in Monday's 119-111 loss to Chicago. The loss snapped a seven-game losing streak for Miami, but Dragic was terrific, notching nine assists and five rebounds before fouling out in 38 minutes. Tyler Johnson suffered an ankle injury and will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, so Dragic may see an increased workload going forward. He's scored 20 or more points in four straight and will look to make it five on Wednesday vs. the Bucks.
