    The Heat are listing Duncan Robinson (ankle sprain) as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    If Duncan can't go Derrick Jones Jr. would be the likely move into the starting lineup and biggest beneficiary, while others would get extra minutes as well. Keep an eye on this situation as we get closer to game time.

    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.

    Derrick Jones Jr. came off the bench for long enough to chip in seven points and add 12 boards to his name on Wednesday night

    Jones played 25 minutes off the bench and has been doing enough with his minutes to warrant some looks in standard leagues. He should be monitored and if you have an expendable player at the end of your bench, Jones is not a bad option to swap in.

    Derrick Jones played 19 minutes on Sunday and was able to chip in a steal, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Jones was a little better on Friday when he played through a bruised thigh with six points, two steals and a block in 23 minutes, but the cash counters continue to be there even if the minutes are trending down. It's going to be tough for him to hold more than stash appeal in 12-team leagues as a result, but perhaps Jones finds some wiggle room if the Heat get aggressive on the trade market.

    Derrick Jones Jr. has been upgraded to available for Friday’s matchup vs. the Nets after being listed as questionable with a bruised thigh.

    With Justise Winslow (back) already ruled out, there is less fear that Jones Jr. will lose playing time on Friday. He has been standard league relevant so far this season and has been producing per-game value inside the top 100 over the last two weeks.

    Derrick Jones Jr. (left inner thigh bruise) is questionable to take the floor on Friday against the Nets.

    Airplane mode had an all around solid performance on Wednesday and has been producing 9th/8th round value over the last two weeks in 8/9-cat leagues. He is worth a look but there is a risk that he will lose value with Justise Winslow's return to the lineup.

    Derrick Jones Jr. came off the bench to the tune of 18 points, seven rebounds, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers on Wednesday.

    Jones was still able to contribute with Jimmy Butler returning to the lineup. The Heat seem to love Jones, who saw 30 minutes as a reserve and should be able to provide value in standard leagues, especially if Butler misses any action.

    Derrick Jones Jr. started for Jimmy Butler on Sunday and put up 19 points on 8-of-17 shooting in a win over the Blazers.

    Jones did it all as he added six rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and two blocks to the stat sheet. He was a great DFS stream for this one, but he remains a steals specialist for deeper leagues.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (back) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Blazers.

    Tyler Herro, Derrick Jones Jr. and Goran Dragic are all in line to see extended run and usage with Butler out. Butler is considered day-to-day going forward.

    Derrick Jones Jr. ended the game with 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting, 6 rebounds, 2 steals and a block vs Toronto on Thursday.

    Not the best game for Jones Jr. however the defensive were there. The Heat love him, and he's been the first player coming in off the bench. Justice Winslow should be returning soon, which could take a toll on his value. For the time being, Jones Jr. should be owned in standard leagues, and owners should expect better games than this one.

    Derrick Jones Jr. was able to deliver 14 points, seven rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer while shooting 5-of-6 from the field on Friday.

    Don't look now, but Jones is returning top-180/160 numbers on the full season in just 20.8 mpg. Over the last two weeks he's inside the top-100 and should be scooped up in all leagues, at least for the short term. The eventual return of Justise Winslow will impact him but Jones is making a convincing case for more minutes, even when the Heat are healthy.

    Derrick Jones Jr. (migrane) played through the pain in Wednesday's win over the 76ers, scoring 13 points to go with six rebounds, an assist and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes off the bench.

    Jones Jr. continues his ascent in the rotation and is now cutting into Kelly Olynyk's playing time (eight minutes) fairly significantly. It's always a revolving door with Erik Spoelstra's front court rotations, but for now Jones Jr. is the hot hand, and is worth a look in deep-settings for his upside in defensive stats.

    Derrick Jones Jr. is available for Wednesday's tilt vs. the Sixers despite dealing with a migraine.

    Jones Jr. told the media that bright lights are an issue for him with the migraine that he is currently dealing with. He might not see as many minutes as a result so it might be safer to look elsewhere for streamers and potential DFS plays on Wednesday's nine-game slate.

    Derrick Jones Jr. missed shootaround this morning due to a migraine and he is questionable to face the Sixers on Wednesday.

    We should get another update closer to tip-off since this doesn’t look to be anything serious. Jones has been in the rotation lately capitalizing on the absences of Goran Dragic and Justise Winslow while making himself a consideration in deeper leagues.

    Derrick Jones Jr. had another productive fantasy game on Saturday, tallying nine points, four rebounds, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    The Heat are playing shorthanded and Jones is running with the opportunity. He's just outside the top-150 over the last week of action and has a track record of racking up steals, blocks and threes in a hurry. If he keeps playing this much, it's a matter of when, not if, Jones hits the standard-league radar. He should be scooped up in all 16-team leagues at minimum.
