  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo scored 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting with 11 boards, five dimes, a steal and a block on Monday.

    Adebayo continues to hand out dimes at an insane rate for a center not named Nikola Jokic. He's averaging 4.7 assists per game to go along with his 16.0 points and 10.5 boards which has him inside the top-40 n the year. He's a major reason why the Heat have exceeded expectations this year as one of the league's most exciting prospects.

  • James Johnson
    PF, Miami Heat

    James Johnson had a strong night off the bench on Monday, scoring 22 points on 9-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, three assists, two blocks and four 3-pointers.

    Johnson made a return after dealing with an eye injury and popped up with a big line as he usually does every three or four games. Until he does this consistently, we''re going to suggest leaving him on the wire.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic scored 18 points on 7-of-16 shooting with two rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on Monday.

    Dragic played 32 minutes off the bench and was crucial in the Heat's victory tonight. The Heat were playing shorthanded and Dragic stepped up in a big way. The problem is,this value doesn't seem sustainable with Jimmy Butler (hip) healthy.

  • Duncan Robinson
    F, Miami Heat

    Duncan Robinson scored 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting with one rebound, two assists and four triples on Monday.

    Robinson remains one of the most trustworthy 3-point streamers, but that's the extent of his game. There's value in it though as he hasn't had a game where he's hit less than two triples since December 23rd against the Jazz.

  • Derrick Jones Jr.
    SF, Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones Jr. is questionable to return on Monday after being poked in both eyes.

    That sounds painful. James Johnson is having a solid game in the meantime. There should be a more concrete update later.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler is being ruled out ahead of Monday's matchup with the Kings due to right hip soreness.

    With Butler out, there will be a ton of usage and minutes to go around in the Heat rotation. One of Goran Dragic or Derrick Jones Jr. should enter the starting lineup, while the minutes will be dispersed amongst a handful of players.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic scored 19 points to go along with five rebounds and two assists on 7-of-13 shooting in Sunday's loss to the Spurs.

    Drag has been returning standard league value over the past few weeks, but barring a trade to another team that looks to be his ceiling.

    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler struggled to get much going during Sunday's loss to the Spurs going 5-of-14 from the field for 16 points, five rebounds and six assists.

    Butler has been struggling over the last three games and the shot attempts have been done. He'll look to bounce back during tomorrow's game versus the Kings.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo exploded for 21 points, 16 rebounds, six assists and two steals on 8-of-13 shooting during Sunday's 107-102 loss versus the Spurs.

    While most of the Heat's offense was sputtering, Adebayo was getting it done in all facets. Owners expected the big rebounding and scoring numbers, but his assist totals continue to be the cherry on top of his fantasy profile.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro (left knee bruise) will return from a two-game absence on Sunday against the Spurs.

    Herro's knee is healed up and while he might play a bit less than usual, he's safe to get into lineups on a day with just two NBA games on deck. He's a late-round option when everything is clicking.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro (left knee bruise) will once again be a game-time decision on Sunday.

    Herro has missed the last two games despite being a game-time decision for both of those, so perhaps the third time is the charm. His return would limit Kendrick Nunn and Duncan Robinson but hopefully you're not leaning on any of these three for fantasy production. They're all standard-league guys but the upside is fairly capped when everyone is healthy.

    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro (left knee bruise) is questionable for Sunday.

    With Herro possibly missing yet another game, we should see more of Duncan Robinson and Derrick Jones Jr. on the wing.

  • Kelly Olynyk
    C, Miami Heat

    Kelly Olynyk went 5-for-5 from the field in Friday's win over the Thunder, finishing with 12 points, seven rebounds and a 3-pointer in 18 minutes.

    Olynyk has fallen off the cliff of late, dipping out of the rotation after James Johnson's resurgence. The stat set remains worthwhile but the playing time hasn't been there. Maybe this is the start of the pendulum swinging back the other way, but the Olynyk-Johnson situation only merits attention in deeper leagues. Johnson had five rebounds and a block in 21 minutes tonight.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo scored 21 points on Friday (7-of-11 from the field) with eight rebounds, five assists and one block in 32 minutes.

    Adebayo also shot 7-of-10 from the line and has improved to .681 from the line on the season after shooting .730 in the past month. He is a multi-category monster in fantasy and will post early-round value the rest of the way.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler scored 14 points (3-of-8 from the field) with 10 rebounds, seven assists and two steals in a 115-108 win over the Thunder on Friday.

    Butler didn't take too many shots but went a perfect 7-of-7 from the free throw line and put up a well-rounded fantasy line to make up for it. Butler is on the edge of first-round value and is a lock for the top-20 as the star in Miami.
