  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    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.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh) and Rodney McGruder (knee) will miss Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Winslow has been a pleasant surprise this year providing mid-round value over the last few weeks… when he has been on the court. He's probably sitting on waiver wires right now at this crucial time, and hopefully McGruder has been sitting on the waiver wire for longer than that.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    Winslow has missed the last three games and the Heat haven't offered up a potential timeline for a return. This is still an upgrade since Winslow was immediately ruled out for Wednesday's game, so hopefully he can return to the lineup next week, if not before. Goran Dragic has been playing very well off the bench and is worth an add in all formats, while Derrick Jones Jr. has been starting and is worth a look if you need blocks and threes.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    There's still no word on when Winslow might return, but the fact that he is getting ruled out a whole day ahead of time isn't encouraging. Derrick Jones Jr. should continue to start, though Goran Dragic might earn the nod based on his recent play. The Dragon makes for a good add while he's scorching, and Jones is a decent stream for steals, blocks or threes. James Johnson is a deep-league option as well with some decent low-end play since rejoining the rotation.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) will not play in Monday's game against the Thunder.

    It'll be Winslow's second straight absence, and with little word on a timetable fantasy owners might be facing a tough lineup decision. Josh Richardson slid over to the point guard spot while Derrick Jones Jr. entered the starting lineup on Sunday, but we'll see if the Heat go back to that well with Richardson shooting 2-of-17 while Goran Dragic had a productive game off the bench. If Jones starts again he'll be worth a look for his output in steals, blocks and threes.

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) will miss Sunday's game against the Hornets and Derrick Jones Jr. will start in his place.

    That means that Josh Richardson will be the primary ball-handler in the first unit, with Goran Dragic still part of the reserve group. Jones' stat set makes him a fun streaming choice today, while we might see someone like Kelly Olynyk or Dion Waiters get extra playmaking responsibilities as well.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Hornets.

    Winslow put up a full line on Friday night and has been playing well even with the return of Goran Dragic, so this would be a very tough break for Winslow, the Heat and fantasy owners. It could also spell trouble for next week, with Miami starting a back-to-back that includes a trip to Oklahoma City on Monday. If Winslow can't play, we'll see more of Dragic (who might start), Rodney McGruder, Dion Waiters and Derrick Jones Jr., while James Johnson might get back into the rotation.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow scored a team-high 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting with a stuffed stat sheet in Friday's loss to the Bucks.

    Winslow was solid as he added two rebounds, five dimes, three triples, two steals and one block to the box score tonight. He's been a top-80 play over the last two weeks and should hover in that area down the stretch. Goran Dragic chipped in 10 points on 5-of-16 shooting with four rebounds and three dimes in 19 minutes off the bench.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow put up 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 26 minutes of action in a 108-74 win over the Pistons on Wednesday.

    A lot of Heat players were able to rest due to this blowout win. Udonis Haslem and Ryan Anderson made it onto the court and saw seven minutes and six minutes respectively. Winslow has become a consistent middle-round value over the past month and should easily be able to retain that for the rest of the season.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow recorded 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, nine assists, one triple and one steal in Friday's win over the Cavs.

    He did his damage in a team-high 35 minutes, which is a good sign. Goran Dragic returned to action but was on a minutes limit. Dion Waiters had a forgettable night with just three points, one rebound, one trey and two assists to his name in 17 minutes. Winslow remains the guard to own in the Heat's crowded backcourt rotation until further notice.

  • Goran Dragic - G - Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (calf strain) will play on Friday vs. the Cavs.

    With the Dragon returning, we’ll have to see if there’s any impact on Justise Winslow’s game. Dragic had been hot over the last two games he’s played but hasn’t been that good overall over the last two seasons so hopefully he’ll keep producing.

    Justise Winslow logged 36 minutes on Monday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting to go with five rebounds, three assists, three steals and a 3-pointer.

    Winslow is still racking up big minutes and he's just inside the top-100 in 9-cat leagues over the past two weeks. Goran Dragic (strained left calf) can't seem to stay on the floor which means Winslow's going to continue to play point for a team that's fighting for a playoff berth. When Dragic is healthy the situation becomes much murkier.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow filled the stat sheet on Thursday with 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting to go with seven boards, eight assists and three triples.

    Winslow was questionable to even play in this game but he started and made a huge impact. He was all over it on both ends of the floor while given the impossible task of guarding James Harden. That's the second consecutive game with strong production so we wouldn't blame you if you wanted to ride him out while he's hot but the Heat have a ton of players that could eat into his usage.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (left ankle sprain) is starting on Thursday against the Rockets.

    Winslow was a late addition to the report but was downgraded to probable so this is no shock. We'll see how he and Goran Dragic divvy up the point guard work from here on out.
