    Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Justise Winslow will be traded to Memphis in the package for Andre Iguodala.

    Winslow should see more opportunity in Memphis than he did in Miami. He is not a 12-team add yet as he is out until after the All-Star break with a back bone bruise and Memphis will be cautious with bringing him back. He may have late-round value with mid-round upside if he gets a significant role in Memphis.

    Justise Winslow (back bone bruise) will not rejoin the Heat prior to the All-Star break.

    Winslow was already ruled out for Wednesday's game but is now looking at a lengthier absence. The Heat play five road games prior to the All-Star game and he won't be a part of those. This news should mean an expanded role for Derrick Jones Jr.

    Justise Winslow (back bone bruise) is being listed as out for Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.

    Winslow is thought to be getting closer, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out through the All-Star break. The Heat have been rumored to be looking to add another piece, so Winslow may be returning to an even more crowded rotation assuming he isn't the one dealt.

    Justise Winslow (back bone bruise) has been doing conditioning and training work but has yet to resume on-court activity.

    That's not surprising with Winslow expected to be re-evaluated in a few days but it does make it sound like his return isn't exactly on the horizon. He shouldn't be rostered in leagues with fewer than 16 teams at this point, in case you were still holding on for some reason.

    Justise Winslow (back) will miss the next two weeks and then be re-evaluated.

    If you're still holding onto Winslow in a league with fewer than 16 teams, you're probably some kind of saint, but also you can feel free to cut him now. Derrick Jones and James Johnson have recently snapped up rotation spots and should continue to get that opportunity going forward.

    Justise Winslow (back) will not travel with the team as they embark on a two game road trip which will start against the Thunder on Friday and finish with the Spurs on Sunday.

    Winslow has not been able to recover from a bone bruise on his back that has now cost him 20 out of the last 21 games. Winslow can be dropped until we get word that he is close to a return. Even when healthy, his per-game numbers have not been good enough to provide standard league value.

    Erik Spoelstra said on Tuesday that Justise Winslow (back) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Spurs and that there is no update on the injury.

    Winslow's hot opening week has quickly turned into a nightmare season as he's missed 28 games dealing with injuries. He made it through only 15 minutes of action in his return on January 8th before suffering a setback, so there is no real certainty as to when he will get back on the court. The Heat should provide an update soon.

    Justise Winslow (back) has reportedly left the team with one game left on their current road trip in order to meet with a back specialist some time this upcoming week.

    Winslow is set to miss Sunday's game, which will make for his 17th total game missed due to this back injury. He doesn't appear close to a return, and the report mentions that their could be some disagreement between him and the organization regarding their treatment plan to get him back out there. Winslow is a hard drop in most settings for what looks to be an indefinite stint on the sidelines. He's also not a particularly helpful fantay player even when he does play.

    Justise Winslow (back) will not play on Friday or Sunday.

    Winslow played 15 minutes on Wednesday night after missing a month with a back bone bruise, but he suffered a setback and has been ruled out of Miami's next two games. He's not someone to hold onto in standard leagues, and Derrick Jones Jr. is making a compelling case to take Winslow's minutes even when he's healthy.

    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.

    Coach Erik Spoelstra informed the media that Justise Winslow had a setback with his back after and he will miss Friday's game as a result.

    Winslow returned to action after a 15-game absence with a bone bruise on his back and played 15 minutes in his return. Unfortunately, he suffered a setback and will have to miss Friday's game. He has not lived up to expectations so far this season and does not need to be rostered in standard leagues.

    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.

    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (back) has been upgraded to available for Wednesday's matchup against the Pacers.

    Butler was previously listed as probable so the fact that he will play comes as no surprise. Lock him into your lineup. One thing worth watching is how head coach Erik Spoelstra decides to re-integrate Justise Winslow back into the rotation in his first game back.

    Justise Winslow will make his return from a back bone bruise on Wednesday when the Heat face the Pacers.

    Winslow is back after missing 15 games and it will be interesting to see how many minutes he gets. The Heat have been successfully using Duncan Robinson, Tyler Herro, Kendrick Nunn and Derrick Jones during his absence but Erik Spoelstra will have to make some tough decisions going forward. Winslow deserves the stash but he will likely be eased back into the rotation.

    Justise Winslow (back bone bruise) practiced on Tuesday and is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

    It looks like Winslow, who hasn't suited up since December 14th, has a real chance at making his return to the lineup on Wednesday. He may ultimately be eased back into things after such a long layoff, but his return will have ripple effects for the Heat's guard and wing rotations. Keep an eye on how the minutes get distributed.
