The Miami Heat are stuck in NBA limbo, or as I like to call it, the wheel of mediocrity. They were just bad enough to miss the playoffs, but just good enough to not get…

Duncan Robinson has played himself into the Miami Heat's regular rotation, and may be a candidate to start at small forward.
Duncan Robinson has started three of the last four preseason games at SF for the Heat, putting up a line of 17 points (5-of-10 shooting), four threes, and a block while remaining perfect from the line in the preseason finale. Spoelstra typically runs a deep rotation and he said that he wanted to play his best ten guys on Thursday. Robinson will need to remain efficient to be worth monitoring, but his insertion into Spoelstra's rotation likely means that the Heat will employ a committee at the three, complicating the minutes situation for late-round flier Derrick Jones, Jr. Robinson is more of a three-point stream option to put on watch lists in deeper leagues while Jones remains a worthy late-round dart throw.

The Heat will be picking up Duncan Robinson's $1 million guarantee for the upcoming season.
Robinson played well throughout Summer League and will now officially be on the roster. He only appeared in 15 games last season, and although he's showed some promise Robinson will likely need another trade to go down to open up a serious shot at playing time.

Duncan Robinson was on fire on Saturday, registering 26 points (9-of-21 shooting), eight rebounds, four 3s, three assists, three steals and two blocks in 36 minutes.
Robinson is someone to keep an eye on for now. The Heat are serious contenders to land Chris Paul via a trade with the Thunder, so their roster could still see a drastic shake-up before October's regular season tip off.

Duncan Robinson collected some stats in Wednesday's close loss to Minnesota, scoring 13 points to go with four rebounds, four assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.
Robinson is likely to be an end of the bench guy in his second season with Miami. He doesn't figure to hold much fantasy value unless the Heat see some injuries to their frontcourt.

Duncan Robinson played well on Sunday in a win over the Jazz as he put up 20 points and 10 rebounds on 8-of-13 shooting.
He shot 2-of-7 from 3-point territory and 6-of-6 from inside the arc. Robinson is proving that he has a year of NBA experience under his belt with his stellar play thus far. He has a roster spot locked down for next season. However, expect him to have a limited role like he did last season.

Duncan Robinson went 5-of-8 from the field, 3-of-5 from deep and perfect on four free throw attempts to score 17 points in Monday's Summer League win over the Lakers.
Robinson did his damage efficiently and only logged 20 minutes as the Heat led by 20 or more for most of the night. He also chipped in five rebounds and four assists. Robinson only played 160 minutes last season, with 36 of those coming in the season finale. The sophomore doesn't figure to be a rotation player this year but more performances like this would help his case.

Duncan Robinson played well in his first big minutes (36) on Wednesday with 15 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
The rookie had played just 125 minutes all season prior to tonight. His 3-point stroke looked good, but he's a long way from fantasy-relevance.

The Heat now have 14 players on their roster after signing Duncan Robinson to a standard NBA contract on Tuesday.
Robinson will continue to provide depth off the bench for the Heat. He is off the fantasy radar.

Currently operating at 13 players, two below the league maximum, the Heat are required by NBA rule to add at least one player by Sunday.
Miami had been going with a shortened roster due to the possibility of avoiding the punitive NBA luxury tax. However, with Kelly Olynyk this week locking in his $1 million bonus for playing at least 1,700 minutes, the tax is no longer a factor. If the playoffs are the priority, the Heat could add two veterans that would qualify for the postseason roster. Alternatively, they could also convert the two-way contracts of Duncan Robinson and Yante Maten to standard contracts, making them playoff-eligible. The final option is to fill out their roster with prospects on contracts that include non-guaranteed pay beyond this season. Stay tuned.

Duncan Robinson and Yante Maten have both rejoined the Heat for tonight's game against the Spurs.
Both of them will provide emergency depth but they are not a consideration for fantasy leagues.

Duncan Robinson was recalled by the Heat from the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Tuesday.
Robinson is a raw prospect and should provide some wing depth to the Heat. He could be looking at a handful of minutes if Josh Richardson is unable to go on Wednesday, but he can be left on the wire for now.

Duncan Robinson scored five points (2-of-6 shooting) with one rebound, one assist and one steal in his first career start for the Heat on Monday.
He's still raw but is worth keeping an eye on should the Heat continue to trust him with minutes in the low 20s. He can be left on the wire for now.

Duncan Robinson will make his first career start on Monday against the Suns alongside Josh Richardson, Dion Waiter, Kelly Olynyk and Hassan Whiteside.
Robinson has not seen much playing time at all this season, but the Heat are very thin for this one. If Goran Dragic were playing a full compliment of minutes, Robinson likely doesn't start in this one. The Heat's slew of injuries are all short-term, so Robinson is only a punt play in DFS.

The Miami Heat have sent forward Duncan Robinson to the Sioux Falls Skyforce, their G-League affiliate.
Robinson, who is signed to a two-way contract, has passed about a quarter of his 45 allotted days in the NBA but with so little playing time (fewer than eight minutes a game) on a loaded Heat team, they decided to get him more reps in the G-League.
