Well, my friends, for most of us the season is over. We struggled through maintenance days, injuries, "Fiz" being used as a verb, tanking, the Bulls' and Pels' special brand of tanking and had a…

Dion Waiters was scoreless in nine minutes vs. the Nets in Wednesday's season finale.
Waiters missed the first 35 games of the season and returned with per-game value just outside the top-200 over his 44 games. He eventually settled in near his previous averages except for a decent increase in threes (2.5 on the season, 3.4 over the last month). If you can deal with bad percentages, Waiters could be worth rostering once again next season.

Dion Waiters dropped 17 points with five 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists in an overtime loss to the Raptors on Sunday.
Waiters has been surging recently (22 points w/ six 3-pointers on Friday) and the Heat need him to continue his good play as they fight for a playoff spot. It seems he's over his knee soreness he dealt with earlier in the week.

Dion Waiters had the hot hand on Friday, hitting 6-of-12 shots from downtown en route to his 22 points (8-of-17 shooting) and nothing else.
Waiters has been dealing with a sore left knee so this explosion was a bit of a surprise. At the end of the day, this one-dimensional outing leaves a lot to be desired. His stat set issues and injury risks are still capping his late-season upside, but with Josh Richardson out, Waiters will be the Heat's main 3-point threat.

Dion Waiters (left knee) is available to play on Friday against the Wolves.
The Heat are relying on Waiters to continue his recent surge as they push to make the playoffs. Waiters will have a prime opportunity to continue his hot stretch with Josh Richardson out for the next two weeks. Feel free to plug him into your lineups.

Dion Waiters (left knee) had a precautionary MRI which was negative and is probable to face the Wolves on Friday.
Waiters has been a top-70 9-cat player over the past two weeks and has seen his minutes rise to 37.5 over his past four games. The Heat are fighting to make the playoffs and need Waiters to play as much as possible with Josh Richardson getting hurt again.

Dion Waiters needed 22 shot attempts to score 21 points in a team-high 42 minutes of action in a loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.
He shot 8-of-22 from the field and added three rebounds, five assists and five 3-pointers to the stat sheet. Waiters has been a late-round value shooting specialist over the past month and is a solid volume play down the stretch. Goran Dragic did not have a great shooting day either, as he shot 3-of-15 from the field to score 11 points. The Heat failed to come through in a game that would have meant a lot for the playoff race in the Eastern Conference.

Dion Waiters forced his way to 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting with two rebounds, four assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on Monday.
Waiters bludgeoned his way to 14 points tonight, but as usual the shooting wasn't pretty and when he isn't scoring he isn't doing enough to warrat being owned. If you're feeling risky, take a gamble on him for some triples though.

Dion Waiters scored 28 points (11-of-23 shooting) with six 3-pointers, three rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block on Saturday night as the Heat won 100-92.
Waiters was on fire the whole night but is still not a must-own player considering how he can be inefficient on a nightly basis. If you have a streaming spot open and you need some scoring punch and 3-pointers, feel free to give him a look.

Josh Richardson (bruised left heel) and Justise Winslow (thigh, food poisoning) will miss the Heat’s next two games.
If your H2H playoffs end after this week this is the sign to move on if you haven’t already. Goran Dragic and Dion Waiters will continue to get lots of usage while the Heat are shorthanded.

Dion Waiters scored 17 points (6-of-17 shooting) with three 3-pointers on Thursday night as the Heat won 105-99.
This is a really inefficient "Clarkson" where we got some empty points without even any good shooting numbers. Waiters is scoring and making 3-pointers, but you're not getting a lot else. If that's what you need, he's your guy.

Dion Waiters hit five threes on his way to 26 points in Tuesday's loss to the Magic.
Streamable points and threes. That's about all Waiters has for you, but he's been providing those with regularity recently.

Dion Waiters delivered nine points, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in Friday's loss to the Bucks.
Waiters went 3-of-9 from the field but at least he made his shots count and came through with some defense. He's a deep-league option unless you're desperate for points and feeling lucky. Tonight's line was something we'd expect to see from a guy like James Johnson, who flopped with four points, one rebound, two assists and a 1-of-7 shooting line in his 24 minutes.

Dion Waiters played well on Wednesday against the Spurs with 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting in 33 minutes of action.
He hit four 3-pointers with five rebounds and four assists. Waiters is simply a deep-league shooting specialist. Dwyane Wade scored 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting with two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer. Wade has solid deep-league value in assists, steals, blocks and scoring.

Dion Waiters played well on Wednesday, as he had 14 points on four triples with two steals and one block in a win over the Pistons.
He shot 5-of-12 from the field and missed both of his attempts from the stripe, but he was able to contribute four rebounds and three assists. Josh Richardson chipped in 13 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and two triples. Richardson has remained a steady middle-round value for the entire season, while Waiters is more of a deep-league shooting specialist.
