Udonis Haslem will take his time to see where he stands this summer, even before the Heat take stock of where they are headed as a franchise.
“I'm one of those people who's always thinking about what's next: What's next business-wise, season-wise? What about my body?" Despite his mentorship in recent seasons, Haslem has downplayed a role in coaching, but has not ruled out a different role in the organization. "I always want to be a part of this organization, close to these guys," he said. "It's definitely a conversation to have. I have a lot of energy and it has to go somewhere.” His role this past season was reduced to 72 total minutes spread over 14 appearances, all in the regular season, with no playoff action while he scored eight total points. The time might have come to call it a career for one of the most respected veterans around the league but he will take the time to discuss the future with his family before making a decision.

Paul George had a quiet Wednesday night by his standards but still fills the stat sheet, ending with 13 points, five boards, three assists, a steal, a block and two 3's.
George is a first-round talent on a per-game basis this year. His health is looking good and he should be able to shoulder a lot of the load for fantasy teams this year.
December 11, 2019, 10:04 pmTerrence RossSG, Orlando Magic
Terrence Ross was off his game on Wednesday and was limited to scoring four points on 2-of-11 shooting with one rebound, one assist and three steals.
Ouch. Ross was on a bit of a heater prior to this one, so the sting is real. That said, he's been trending up so just consider this a hiccup thanks to a tough matchup against one of the best teams in the league.
December 11, 2019, 10:03 pmJaylen BrownSG, Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown dropped 18 points (7-for-12 shooting), eight rebounds, eight assists, two triples and one steal in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.
Brown continues to show no signs of slowing down since the return of Gordon Hayward, who actually left this game. Brown seems like he's in a groove right now and should continue to produce.
December 11, 2019, 10:03 pmIvica ZubacC, Los Angeles Clippers
Ivica got the start but was limited to seven points, contributing in other ways with eight rebounds, an assist, a steal and two blocks on Wednesday.
Zubac only saw 16 minutes of action but made the most of it in the counting categories. He ceded his minutes to Montrezl Harrell who had 10 points, six rebounds and four assists. Patrick Patterson also chipped in with 11 points and seven rebounds. Harrell is the one to own here, even if he is coming off the bench.
December 11, 2019, 10:02 pmD.J. AugustinPG, Orlando Magic
D.J. Augustin started on Wednesday for an ill Markelle Fultz but was a virtual non-factor, mustering just two points, three rebounds and two assists.
Augustin has taken a massive hit this season with the rise to viability of Fultz. Not only has he ceded the starting PG job, but Augustin has also struggled to maintain consideration in 16-team leagues or deeper.
December 11, 2019, 9:57 pmJayson TatumSF, Boston Celtics
Jayson Tatum didn't have his shot going (4-for-13 shooting) on Wednesday but stayed aggressive attacking the basket (6-for-6 free throws) scoring 16 points to go along with six rebounds, three assists, two triples and two steals.
Tatum had been shooting pretty efficiently recently so it's not a surprise to see that fall off a bit. It's encouraging to see him put up a productive line even on the off night.
December 11, 2019, 9:56 pmKevin LovePF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Love had a strong outing in Wednesday's 116-110 loss to the Rockets, finishing with 17 points, 11 boards, two assists, a steal and a block on 8-of-14 shooting.
When Love plays, you can count on mid-round value from him. He is currently sitting as a top-70 player this season. A trade may result in Love playing in more games down the stretch, as well.
December 11, 2019, 9:53 pmMikal BridgesSF, Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges (left finger sprain) will play on Wednesday after being listed as probable.
Hopefully Bridges picks up where he left off, which was rounding into a solid 3-and-D contributor.
December 11, 2019, 9:52 pmCollin SextonPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Collin Sexton ended his Wednesday night with 18 points, a rebound and a steal on 8-of-14 shooting.
Other than the scoring, Sexton doesn't bring much to the table. He's sitting just instead the top-200 now and is only a streaming candidate in standard league at this point.
December 11, 2019, 9:51 pmCameron JohnsonSF, Phoenix Suns
Cam Johnson (left hip soreness) will play on Wednesday against the Grizzlies after being listed as probable.
Johnson is a decent look if you need some supplemental three-pointers. It will be interesting to see how his return affects the minutes for Mikal Bridges in the Suns rotation.
