    Dion Waiters will be active on Friday when the Heat clash with the Pacers according to head coach Erik Spoelstra.

    Dion Waiters has been active previously this season but has not actually received minutes. Waiters recently had a meeting with Pat Riley so everyone could be trying to turn the page on a lousy first third of the season. It is hard to imagine Waiters carving out fantasy relevance on a deep Heat roster that has been gelling well so far, but perhaps the team is attempting to pump up his trade value? It is hard to predict how this turns out, but Waiters should be ignored until we see him receive some decent playing time.

    Pat Riley recently met with both Dion Waiters and James Johnson and emphasized the desire for a fresh start, with both players returning to the team.

    Waiters has been suspended three times this season by the team but they haven't closed the door on him playing for the organization again, while Johnson has recently been away for personal reasons after getting sent away in training camp for showing up out of shape. Neither player has been a factor at all, and the Heat would probably like to be rid of their contracts, but given the near-zero trade value it seems like Riley is going to push for the best of a tough situation.

    Dion Waiters had been suspended for the third time this year by the Heat.

    He may return on December 23rd and this suspension was due to "failure to adhere to team policies, violation of team rules and continued insubordintion." It's unlikely that Waiters was on many fantasy rosters, but with the emergence of Tyler Herro and Kendrick Nunn, he's essentially no longer a part of the Heat's plans.

    Dion Waiters (illness) has been ruled out for Friday.

    If it's not one thing it's another with Waiters, who isn't a fantasy option in any format.

    Dion Waiters will not play against the Hawks on Tuesday due to illness.

    If Waiters wasn’t making over $12 million this season and next, he would surely have been released from the team by now. But since he is, he is going to be buried on the bench even when he does suit up.

    Dion Waiters (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's tilt with the Hawks.

    Waiters has yet to play this season and even if he's cleared there's no guarantee that he sees the court.

    Dion Waiters (illness) will not play on Sunday.

    Waiters hasn't appeared in a single game yet, and the illness is poorly timed since the Heat are dealing with multiple injuries elsewhere that could open the door for him to play. Despite that potential opportunity, Waiters is not close to the fantasy radar.

    Dion Waiters is dealing with an illness that will keep him out of action when the Heat face the Wizards on Friday.

    Waiters will join Goran Dragić on the sidelines, leaving plenty of room for Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson to get more run against the Wizards. Waiters will keep on waiting for his first appearance on the floor this year.

    Goran Dragić (right groin strain) has been ruled out ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Wizards.

    With Dragić ruled out and Justise Winslow (lower back strain) questionable, the Heat could find themselves short-handed against the Wizards. Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson could all see more opportunity while Dion Waiters might finally get his first minutes of the season.

    Dion Waiters will be on the active roster for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

    The heat are pulling out all of the stops with a big early season showdown on deck. This will be Waiters' first time in uniform this season, and it's hard to predict what type of role he will see even with Goran Dragic out, as he got himself into hot water with the team and coaching staff with his public comments. Waiters is better left on the waiver wire for now.

    Eric Spoelstra said this morning that it’s “likely” that Dion Waiters returns to the active roster on Tuesday.

    The injury of Goran Dragic seems to be opening up some extra minutes but this still doesn’t guarantee that Waiters gets to play. Guys like Duncan Robinson and Chris Silva are probably ahead of him in the rotation so he should be left on the waiver wire for now.

    Dion Waiters has returned to the Heat now that his suspension is over, but he is not on the active roster for Sunday.

    We'd be surprised if Waiters emerged to play meaningful minutes at any point with the way that Duncan Robinson and Kendrick Nunn have grabbed hold of rotation spots.

    Dion Waiters has been suspended for 10 games without pay.

    The report runs deeper as a teammate supposedly supplied Waiters with the substance he is being suspended for. Waiters is not worth being held during the suspension in anything but the deepest of leagues.

    After being available and not seeing the floor on Thursday due to a stomach bug, Dion Waiters is now out due to the same apparent illness on Friday vs. the Lakers.

    Waiters has still not been able to take the floor for the Heat. Maybe he will make some noise, maybe he won’t. But until he’s out of the doghouse and on the same page with his team, leave him in the wire for now.

    Dion Waiters and Udonis Haslem are both available for Thursday's game against the Suns.

    They've both been dealing with a stomach bug and we've been dealing with ignoring them all season. That can continue.
