Justise Winslow scored 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, four assists and one steal over 25 minutes in Saturday's win over the Bulls.
Winslow might fall below the standard league cut line with Dion Waiters back and the Heat trying to use the world's first 372-player rotation. Forward looking owners probably want to get ahead of what is probably in inevitable cut position when Goran Dragic returns in a few weeks.

Justise Winslow led the Heat in scoring on Saturday with 26 points on 10-of-16 shooting, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal.
Winslow has been performing at a top-100 value in the past week and his numbers show it. He's currently recording 16.0 PTS, 1.8 3PTM, 5.8 REB, 5.5 AST and 1.0 STL during that span. As his usage continues to rise, we can expect more from Point Winslow as he gets more comfortable with the ball in his hands and Coach Spoelstra giving him the freedom to set up the Miami offensive attack. If you will be able to stomach his up and down FG%, he's currently owned at only 67% in Yahoo Leagues so make some time to check him out if anybody in your league has him snatched up yet.

Justise Winslow scored 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, 11 assists and two 3-pointers on Thursday.
Point Winslow logged 32 minutes and set a new career-high in assists tonight against the Celtics. The experiment with Winslow as a ball-handler is going well for fantasy purposes if you're in need of dimes. Over the past five games Winslow is averaging 12.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 0.8 steals. There's not much else outside of the dimes, but those should be enough if you're in need of a specialist.

Justise Winslow logged just 23 minutes in the Heat's 103-99 loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday, but did put up a nice line with 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting, four rebounds, four assists,
Winslow has barely crested the top-150 over the last few weeks and even most recently in his starting role. The culprits are typical over the last two weeks — field goal shooting (43.4%) and free throw shooting (57.9%, 2.7 FTA/gm) — with the only good news being that he's about 10 points lower than his career average (65%) from the line and when that normalizes he's more of a top-125 guy while Goran Dragic is out.

Justise Winslow led the Heat starters in scoring on Sunday with 13 points, five boards, three assists, a triple and a steal.
Winslow only hit 6-of-16 shots on the night and missed all three of his freebies which hurt his performance. Winslow has been a 12-team option as the starting point guard while Goran Dragic has been out as a top-100 value over the last month.
January 5, 2019, 12:34 amJustise Winslow - F - Miami Heat
Justise Winslow continued to start at point guard and handed out a career-high 10 assists in Friday's home win over the Wizards, and also chipped in with 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting, one trey and three boards in 31 minutes.
Winslow hit just 2-of-4 freebies to remind folks of the percentage issues but the Heat are probably on to something with this configuration and Goran Dragic probably fits better off the bench at this stage of his career, anyway. Winslow is a must-own player in all formats.
January 2, 2019, 9:20 pmJustise Winslow - F - Miami Heat
Justise Winslow's shot continued to revert to career norms in Wednesday's cakewalk against the Cavs as he finished 3-for-11 from the field in 27 minutes of action.
Anyone who was counting on Winslow's strong shooting marks from earlier in the month was bound to be disappointed, but those of you with more realistic expectations will probably take his 10 points, four rebounds, seven assists and a steal. He's a build-dependent player but should have a home in all 12-team leagues while he's handling the starting PG spot.
December 30, 2018, 9:10 pmJustise Winslow - F - Miami Heat
Justise Winslow went 4-for-15 from the floor in Sunday's loss but still ended up with 10 points, seven rebounds, three assists, four steals and a three.
It was a bit silly to expect Winslow to turn into a 20-plus scorer but it's nice to see him fill out the rest of the box score even when his shot predictably abandoned him. Winslow still has the reins as Miami's starting point guard and is a pickup in all formats. Tyler Johnson (eight points, four assists in 27 minutes) didn't pose a threat tonight.
December 28, 2018, 10:42 pmJustise Winslow - F - Miami Heat
Justise Winslow started at point guard again on Friday and delivered 24 points (11-of-21 shooting), 11 rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 34 minutes against the Cavs.
That should cement Winslow as a pickup in all formats after a great game on Wednesday. His poor shooting figures to remain a problem even if it wasn't tonight, but with the sort of usage he's getting as the point guard you can probably overlook that unless your percentages need to be preserved at all costs. Go add Winslow.
December 28, 2018, 9:28 pmJames Johnson - F - Miami Heat
James Johnson (illness) exited Friday’s game and will not return.
Johnson finished 0-for-1 from the field with one rebound in eight minutes so clearly he wasn’t feeling right. Look for Justise Winslow to take advantage with Kelly Olynyk getting some more run off the bench.

Justise Winslow started at point guard and scored 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting with three treys, two boards, four assists and one steal over 33 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.
We don't know if this will work out for the Heat but Winslow should be on all standard league rosters after a performance like this. He has stat set issues that aren't going away overnight, but he should be able to power through them for a good shot at late-round value while Goran Dragic (knee) is out.
December 26, 2018, 12:22 pmJustise Winslow - F - Miami Heat
Erik Spoelstra reiterated that Justise Winslow will be the Heat's starting point guard while Goran Dragic is sidelined.
Dragic is expected to be out until the All-Star break, which gives Winslow a great shot at fantasy value over the next month and a half or so. His shooting remains problematic but this endorsement is big news for his playing time, which is highly important considering the depth of Miami's rotation. We'd still rather roll with Tyler Johnson but Winslow is certainly on the board in 14-team formats. He's outside the top-225 in the last two weeks because of .409 shooting from the field and .333 at the line, though he's inside the top-200 if you're punting either category.
