  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow is hoping to pin down his long-term position.

    "Do I know what position I am finally? No," said Winslow. "But I think it’s somewhere one through three, not so much four. Can I play small-ball four? Yes, late in games. But is that where I think I will be most efficient and most successful? No." That's an interesting take from him, though it's hard to dispute the level of success he found running things out of the backcourt this season. That said, Erik Spoelstra still didn't commit to a single position for Winslow and it's the versatility of their personnel that gives Miami an edge on certain opponents. It's also worth remembering that Winslow's path to true, lead-dog guard minutes is a bit blocked unless Miami can make some moves, so fantasy owners might not want to read too much into his spurts of production this year when the Heat were missing a ton of players.

    Justise Winslow had four steals to go with eight points, five rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes in Wednesday's finale vs. the Nets.

    It was an interesting season for Winslow, who finished as a borderline standard-league player. He doubled his threes (1.5) and assists (4.3) in just five more minutes per game compared to last year. Perhaps most intriguing was a mid-season stretch where he was used as the Heat's primary point guard. If he can carve out a role similar to that in the 15-point, 5-assist, 2-trey range, he could be a solid fantasy starter.

    Justise Winslow scored 15 points with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in Sunday's overtime loss to the Raptors.

    Winslow was dealing with a thigh bruise earlier in the week, but seems to be past it with a quality 34-minute game. His shooting was still inefficient (6-for-18) but the Heat need him to help run the offense as the season comes to a close.

    Justise Winslow will draw the start on Friday vs. the Wolves in place of an injured Josh Richardson (groin strain).

    This wasn’t unexpected as the Heat, a half game out of the eighth seed, pull out all the stops with less than a week to go before the regular season wraps up.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) returned from a nine-game absence on Wednesday and scored four points on 2-of-8 shooting in 23 minutes of action.

    Winslow's injury has come at a terrible time in the season as the Heat are fighting to make the playoffs and this loss to the Celtics definitely did not help their case. Miami has battled injuries all season long as they have used 26 different starting lineups in 78 games played. Josh Richardson has been their steadiest starter and even he is battling injuries as he left this game with a left leg injury. The Heat might have been hit with bad luck at the wrong time.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) will play in Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    With the Heat back closer to full strength, it'll be hard to trust Winslow in tonight's game as he will come off the bench and will be on a minutes restriction. Look elsewhere for value on a big 12 game card.

    The Heat are listing Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) as questionable prior to Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    The Heat's wing rotation is still in flux with Derrick Jones Jr. out and Winslow joining Rodney McGruder and Josh Richardson as questionable. If none of the questionable players can go, Dwyane Wade, Goran Dragic and Dion Waiters will continue to get as much run as they can handle, with Duncan Robinson sprinkled in.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Celtics.

    With Winslow, Rodney McGruder and Josh Richardson out, and Derrick Jones Jr. questionable, the Heat may be very shorthanded on Monday. Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic should get extra run in this one. Wade is more of a factor in points leagues, though.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) has officially been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Mavs.

    The Heat will be without a bevy of rotational pieces as Josh Richardson and Rodney McGruder have already been ruled out. This may provide fantasy value for a backcourt that has been hard to predict this season. Dwayne Wade will continue to be a factor in points league while Derrick Jones Jr. and Goran Dragic may provide value.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) is questionable ahead of Thursday's game with the Mavs.

    Winslow has missed the last six games, and it couldn't come at a worse time with Miami battling for a playoff berth. He figures to return to the starting lineup once he's healthy since the Heat have been using Derrick Jones Jr. and not a natural point guard like Goran Dragic, so hopefully Winslow can step right back into his old production. Dragic and DJJ are the two beneficiaries in the meantime, with Dragic a streaky, low-end guard and Jones a potential source of threes and blocks.

    Justise Winslow (bruised right thigh) will not play on Tuesday against the Magic.

    Winslow dealt with some food poisoning yesterday as well so he was looking unlikely to play despite the upgrade to questionable. This will be his sixth straight game on the sidelines but he has returned to some workouts, so hopefully he can return soon. Goran Dragic will see extra work off the bench and Derrick Jones Jr. will continue to start for as long as Winslow is out.

    Justise Winslow (bruised right thigh) is questionable on Tuesday vs. the Magic.

    Winslow didn't practice on Monday and he is also dealing with an illness so it's going to be tough for him to play in Tuesday's game. He's missed his last five games and if he makes it a sixth then Goran Dragic and Derrick Jones Jr. should have the most to gain.

    Justise Winslow (bruised right thigh) missed practice on Monday because of a case of food poisoning.

    Winslow did work out on Sunday to test his thigh, which is the more pressing issue for fantasy owners. It's going to be tough to plug Winslow into lineups this week since we still don't know a target date for his return, and he'll likely have to shake off some rust after missing the last five games. Goran Dragic will get extra run in the meantime while Derrick Jones Jr. is a stream for threes and blocks as the fill-in starter.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) will remain out against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Winslow will miss his fifth straight game. After being a decent low-end fantasy asset while healthy, he can be left on the waiver wire as the fantasy playoffs are here and his return date is unclear.
