Rodney McGruder had another strong game in Monday's 90-89 win over the Magic, going 7-of-12 from the field for 19 points, eight rebounds, five assists, a block and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.
McGruder played six more minutes than Dwyane Wade and the same amount as Tyler Johnson. A leg fracture basically robbed him of last season but he's always been a Spoelstra favorite and has really come into his own this preseason. McGruder is going to play a role for the Heat this year, and if it were a true meritocracy he'd be the first wing off the bench. It's time to start looking his way in deep league drafts.
