    Jae Crowder has passed the final stages of the concussion protocol and will play in Wednesday’s matchup vs. the Hornets.

    Crowder should be in line for additional opportunity on Wednesday with Jimmy Butler (toe) sidelined. He can be streamed in standard leagues whenever Butler sits out but will have more competition with Tyler Herro (ankle) returning from injury. Crowder could also be looked at when forming a DFS lineup on Wednesday's six-game card.

    Jimmy Butler (left big toe) has been downgraded to out ahead of Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Hornets.

    Butler was forced to leave Sunday’s contest vs. the Wizards in the second half as a result of this most recent injury. Jae Crowder and Derrick Jones Jr. will see the biggest increase in opportunity with Butler sidelined. Goran Dragić and Kendrick Nunn have also seen a slight uptick in minutes when Butler sits out.

    This has no bearing in the fantasy game.

    Jae Crowder is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets after clearing the concussion protocol on Tuesday.

    Crowder should be all systems go in this one, and may find himself with a ton of minutes with the Heat having a long list on their injury report. Crowder has been a top-100 value since he was traded to the Heat and should continue to provide value down the stretch.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro (right ankle soreness) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets after being a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

    Herro is getting ready to return after being out since February 3rd. He'll likely be eased back into the lineup with the Heat able to deploy a deep guard and wing rotation, though they may be shorthanded on Wednesday. It is likely that Herro is floating on your waiver wire, and he is worth keeping an eye on down the stretch as he gets his feet back under him.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn (illness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Jimmy Butler is also questionable, as Nunn would be in for a featured role should he be able to play. If Nunn can't go, Goran Dragic should see all the run he can handle at PG. Keep an eye on this situation as we approach Wednesday's tipoff.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (left toe) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Butler missed Tuesday's practice, so odds are that he will sit this one out. Jae Crowder and Derrick Jones Jr. should see extra minutes if Butler ultimately sits this one out, while there will be a lot of usage to go around. Keep tabs on the situation as we get to Wednesday.

    Udonis Haslem (intestinal issues) was not present at practice on Tuesday.

    Haslem doesn't carry any fantasy value were he to play or sit.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn missed Tuesday's practice with what is being described as a cold.

    Nunn will likely be listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Hornets. Jimmy Butler (toe) also missed practice, so there may be a ton of usage to go around for the Heat in this one. Goran Dragic would be staring at massive minutes were Nunn and Butler to sit out.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Miami Heat

    Jae Crowder cleared the concussion protocol on Tuesday and is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Crowder may find himself in the starting lineup with heavy minutes if teammate Jimmy Butler (toe) is forced to miss time. Crowder has been a top-100 value since being traded to the Heat with averages of 12.3 points, 2.8 treys, and 1.5 steals per game.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro (right ankle soreness) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

    Herro has been out of the lineup since February 3rd, so the team may opt to see him get a few more practices under his belt before activating him. Jimmy Butler (toe) missed practice on Tuesday, and Herro would stand to be in line for additional minutes if Butler were forced to miss time.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (left toe) missed practice on Tuesday and his status is uncertain for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Butler left Sunday's game early with the toe injury, and it looks as though he will be in danger of missing this one as well. If Butler can't go, Derrick Jones Jr. and Tyler Herro would see a value bump. Continue to monitor the situation as tipoff nears.

  • Duncan Robinson
    F, Miami Heat

    Not only is Duncan Robinson on pace to produce perhaps the best 3-point shooting season in NBA history by anyone not named Steph Curry, but he also is on pace to set two records involving two-point shots, or specifically, lack of them.

    The record for fewest two-point attempts in a season by a player who played at least 2400 minutes is 136 by P.J. Tucker in 2018-19. Robinson has 70 two-point attempts in 1914 minutes, putting him on a pace to play 2453 minutes and attempt 90 two-point shots, which would easily break Tucker’s record. Also, 88.3 percent of Robinson’s field goal attempts have been three-pointers. The record for highest percentage of shots taken from three-point range in a season is 82.7 by Wayne Ellington in 2017-18. Just 70 of Robinson’s 600 shot attempts this year have been two-pointers, but with him shooting an absurd 45.3 percent from behind the arc, there is simply no need to shoot more twos. Robinson continues to be one of the most pleasant surprises of this fantasy season and his numbers guarantee that he will finish in the top-100.

    Jae Crowder (concussion) is expected to make his return on Wednesday.

    Crowder left Friday's game after taking a Zion Williamson elbow to the face and is set on Wednesday return after a one game absence. Since being traded to Miami, he has posted 12.3 points, 2.8 three-pointers, and 1.5 steals per game. Crowder has been a key member of the Heat rotation and given owners nearly top-75 value over the last month.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn put up 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting in 29 minutes in a win over the Wizards on Sunday.

    Nunn was limited due to foul trouble throughout the game, but he still put together a solid performance. Goran Dragic also was limited due to foul trouble as he had five fouls in 23 minutes of action. Nunn and Dragic are almost identical in terms of statistics and value, but Nunn offers more upside as he does not turn the ball over much and plays more minutes.
