Kyle: Oladipo was questionable with a tweaked knee but was able to play and looked fine in his 37 minutes.
Josh: Joseph playing this much is limited what Evans can do, but a good line from Joseph looks like this and it takes 86% shooting to get there. He is a deep league guy.
Watch 14 teams Kyle: Joseph has been playing a lot of minutes, but this was the first time he scored in double-digits in eight games. He doesn't offer enough consistent production to be considered as anything more than a stream option in most deeper leagues.
Watch 14 teams Josh: Was putting up his best line for the year before hurting his ribs. It doesn't appear too serious, but there is no way to rely upon him doing this consistently.
Kyle: Olynyk scored a season-high 20 points in just 21 minutes before he took a knee to the ribs on a flying drive to the basket by Tyreke Evans that forced Olynyk to leave the game. He was back on the bench to end the game and said that he should be fine going forward. Olynyk's role is too erratic to consider him anything more than a stream option in standard leagues.
Josh: After a few real stinkers, COllison got a ton of minutes and put up a good line. I am not buying it and I would leave him on the wire in standard leagues if he was dropped.
Stream 12 teams Kyle: This was Collison's first good game in his last four. His minutes have been down, and with it his production and fantasy value. Collison got 36 minutes Friday, with Thaddeus Young ejected, more minutes were available up and down the rotation that won't usually be there.
Kyle: Jones got some unexpected run with the Heat having several players out due to injury and their replacements limited by foul trouble. Leave Jones on the wire in most leagues. He's not a regular part of the rotation when the team is healthy.
Must Add 10 teams Kyle: Sabonis was great again, even in limited minutes, and he shouldn't be on the wire in standard leagues.
Kyle: Is this just what we should expect from Whiteside again, dominant rebound and block games? I hope he's really back, but Whiteside has a mercurial personality, so this could combust.
Josh: Another disappointing performance. He is barely a top 100 guy this season and things are going backwards. I'm not dropping yet, but it's gooing in the wrong direction and I don't think he is a buy low player.
Kyle: Foul trouble limited his minutes Friday. He's been frustrating to roster in standard leagues so far this season, but there remains plenty of upside and plenty of evidence in his game log that better days should be ahead for Turner. He's a firm hold, and if you don't want him, I'd trade him. Someone should at least be enticed by his blocks.
Kyle: Ellington was in foul trouble and couldn't hit a shot, limiting his minutes despite getting a second straight spot start with Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade out. When the Heat are healthy, Ellington might be out of the rotation again, so I wouldn't roster him as anything more than a short-term streamer for threes in most leagues.
Watch 12 teams Josh: This sort of performance is more like what we can exppect from Winslow. It's fine, but it's hardly in the must grab territory like his first couple of showing suggested.
Josh: Huge minutes with both Dragic and Wade out. Don't rely on it.
Stream 14 teams Kyle: Johnson played big minutes Dragic and Wade out and Ellington and Richardson in foul trouble. I wouldn't consider Johnson anything more than a streaming option in 14-team leagues.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: He just isn't being used correctly by Nate McMillan We can't change that, so all we can do is move on.
Droppable 12 teams Kyle: Evans just doesn't look like he's going to get things going anytime soon. I'd be considering him as a drop candidate in standard leagues. But if you do drop him, keep an eye on his role, and continue to consider him a streaming option.
Droppable 10 teams Josh: Young was ejected for a flagrant foul. His production hasn't been great regardless. I don't think he is a ten team league guy anymore.
Kyle: Young was assessed a flagrant-2 fouyl after his elbow grazed Kelly Olynyk's face, resulting in an immediate ejection for Young. It didn't look dirt, and Olynyk sold it well.
Kyle: Wade had a kid earlier this week, and the Heat told him to take as much time as he needs. He is not expected to play Saturday.
