Coach Spoelstra said that Wayne Ellington (bruised quad) is doubtful for Saturday’s game.
Ellington also missed Miami’s last game and Dwyane Wade has been electrifying in his absence. Father Prime was always going to threaten Ellington’s workload to begin with but he’s been the Heat’s best player on their recent run. There could also be some minutes available for Derrick Jones Jr., who will rejoin the team tomorrow. He was supposed to be with the Heat last night but didn’t make it to the arena in time. Jones drew a few starts earlier in the year but will most likely be used as a reserve this time around. Ellington will maintain 3-point specialist value even as the rotation gets cramped, so he’ll be worth owning if that’s what you need.
