Coach Spoelstra said that he’s bringing Kelly Olynyk off the bench on Saturday but declined to name the new starting power forward.
The Heat may need to get creative tonight with Bam Adebayo out for personal reasons. The easiest call is simply to plug James Johnson in, though Olynyk’s inclusion in the starting five came as a result of Tyler Johnson’s injury at shooting guard so it’s possible that Justise Winslow slides back to the four and someone like Rodney McGruder starts at the three. Less likely candidates to start include Luke Babbitt and Derrick Jones Jr., though both have drawn starts for Miami in the past — last season in Babbitt’s case. Olynyk and Johnson remain your best bets for fantasy value regardless of who starts.
