McGruder was a fixture of the starting five last season, though he took advantage of a bunch of injuries along the way. There was some thought that the Heat would retool the rotation with everyone starting out healthy but for now it seems like McGruder will hold onto his job. Josh Richardson offers plenty of versatility as a combo guard off the second unit while Justise Winslow already hinted at second unit duties, so they won’t hurt for minutes even if they lose out on the small forward job. Unfortunately, McGruder didn’t do much fantasy-wise with his starts last season and that doesn’t figure to change this year.
