According to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Beno Udrih could return to the Heat for the 2016-17 season.
The expectation is for the veteran point guard to re-sign in Miami if Udrih can’t find money elsewhere. It’s hard to see any other team offer him a contract that isn’t the veteran minimum so odds are in favour of him returning to the Heat. Udrih would only be insurance behind both Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson and has no fantasy value.
Have been told that unless he is able to find more money elsewhere, Beno Udrih will be returning to Heat next season.

Goran Dragic double-doubled on Wednesday with 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting and 10 assists in 30 minutes.
Dragic has held late-round value throughout the season for his points, assists and threes off the bench. His value is at his ceiling though because of the depth in Miami.
January 23, 2020, 12:20 amBrandon IngramSF, New Orleans Pelicans
Brandon Ingram shot 6-of-22 from the field on Wednesday but still managed 22 points to go with his three rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Ingram probably tanked your field goal percentage today and didn't add many popcorn stats to make up for it. In his first game with Zion Williamson, Ingram still had plenty of opportunities but just couldn't convert. His usage might take a slight hit as Zion's minutes tick upwards, but there's not need to worry at this point.
January 23, 2020, 12:16 amTyler HerroPG, Miami Heat
Tyler Herro caught fire from deep, shooting 7-of-9 from beyond the arc on his way to 25 points with three rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes on Wednesday.
It's certainly fun to own Herro on nights like this, but he is inconsistent because of the depth in Miami. Herro will have late-round value with little upside because of situation in Miami.
January 23, 2020, 12:14 amZion WilliamsonPF, New Orleans Pelicans
Zion Williamson put on a show in his NBA debut on Wednesday night, ending with 22 points (including 17 straight 4th quarter points), seven rebounds and three assists on 8-of-11 shooting and a perfect 4-of-4 from beyond the arc.
Williamson only played 18 minutes but had the stadium rocking in the 4th quarter when he scored 17 straight points, keeping the Pelicans competitive before ultimately returning to the bench to see them fall to the Spurs. As his minutes increase, it will be exciting to see the damage he's capable of causing in the league and the headache he gives opposing defenses. It's a promising start for this talented rookie's career and we can't wait to see where this trajectory takes him.
January 23, 2020, 12:10 amDavis BertansF, Washington Wizards
Davis Bertans scored 24 points on 8-of-18 shooting with four assists, one steal, one block and four triples in 32 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.
The 32 minutes is the most Bertans has played since returning from his right quad strain two weeks ago. He is a must-own player in standard leagues for his 15.3 points and 3.7 threes per game.
January 23, 2020, 12:03 amBradley BealSG, Washington Wizards
Bradley Beal led the Wizards with 38 points (16-of-24 from the field), nine rebounds and five assists in a 134-129 overtime loss to the Heat on Wednesday.
Beal will post early-round value while he's on the court, but his public frustration with the Wizards adds uncertainty to his fantasy value late in the season. It is worth trying to sell-high on Beal to avoid dealing with this situation during the fantasy playoffs.
January 22, 2020, 11:56 pmIan MahinmiC, Washington Wizards
Ian Mahinmi posted a double-double on Wednesday with 10 points (3-of-8 from the field), 10 rebounds and two blocks in 35 minutes.
Mahinmi has been a top-70 player over the past two weeks, averaging 11.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 27.6 minutes per game. He's worth a look in standard leagues as he continues to start and outplay Thomas Bryant (six points and six rebounds in 17 minutes on Wednesday).
January 22, 2020, 11:53 pmDomantas SabonisC, Indiana Pacers
Domantas Sabonis worked the Suns in a 112-87 win on Wednesday, tallying 24 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the field and the line, adding 13 rebounds, one block and four dimes.
Sabonis has had 34 double-doubles this season, which is sick, considering he tallied 30 in the whole of 2018-19. He's been a beast and looks to be a strong candidate to finish the season flirting with top-25 value on and off.
January 22, 2020, 11:51 pmDevin BookerSG, Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker dropped 16 points on 5-of-12 shooting in Wednesday's 112-87 loss to the Pacers, only adding an additional two rebounds, three assists and a steal to his name.
Booker, much like the rest of the Suns, would like to put this game behind them and look ahead to their next game. As an interesting note, his backcourt partner, Ricky Rubio, finished with the same number of rebounds, assists and steals but only seven points.
January 22, 2020, 11:47 pmDeandre AytonC, Phoenix Suns
Deandre Ayton was held to 10 points on 5-of-12 shooting on Wednesday, chipping in eight rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Ayton will move on from this game and hope for better ones in the future. This game is not indicative of what owners should expect from the rising young star. He's currently a top-30 player on the season.
