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 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.

Duncan Robinson will be available for Heat on Wednesday, starting the clock on his 45-day NBA service time limit.
Robinson, the rookie out of Michigan, is on a two-way contract which means he is allowed 45 active days in the NBA. It was reported earlier that he would not be active but things have changed. The Heat would not activate them unless they had good reason to. With Wayne Ellington and Derrick Jones Jr. not expected to play Wednesday, Robinson is likely just depth.

Duncan Robinson, who is currently on a two-way contract with the Heat after going undrafted, has chosen to remain in Miami instead of attending a Team USA mini-camp ahead of the World Cup qualifiers.
The qualifying team for the basketball World Cup is comprised of G-League players for the most part and is coached by Jeff Van Gundy. Robinson chose to stick it out with the Heat as the team has an open roster spot and Robinson wants to secure an NBA contract instead of a two-way deal. Robinson highlighted the growth he's felt working with the Heat's training staff "It's one of the first things you notice in terms of the day to day, how much goes into the strength and conditioning aspect. They do such a good job. This is week three or four for me and it’s impossible to ignore. That's another big reason why I feel like I'm in a good spot, in that my body has a long ways to go, get strong and just get into world-class shape."

The Heat have signed undrafted Michigan alumni Duncan Robinson to a two-way contract.
Robinson is a 6'8 forward most known for his shooting ability at Michigan where he hit 41.9 percent from deep over three years. The Heat's VP of Player Personnel said, "So the attractive part is his length, his size and then his ability to shoot. I saw him at a workout early and it was one of the more impressive workouts I'd ever seen, that's why I felt he could be a special shooter." The Heat have some depth on the wing, so Robinson will only be a minor part of the rotation this year if at all.
