News: Chalmers (hip pointer) will play Friday, Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman reports.
Impact: Chalmers suffered the injury a week ago, and missed Tuesday's preseason game to recover. The injury was never thought to be serious though, and his return in Friday's game confirms that he will be ready to go for the season opener.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McRoberts (toe) will not play Friday or Saturday, Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald reports.
Impact: McRoberts has practiced minimally all preseason due to a consistent toe injury stemming from surgery he had earlier this offseason. Initially it appeared that McRoberts would be able to heal quickly enough to play the season opener, however that notion is now in doubt.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chalmers (hip) will not play Tuesday against the Hawks, Ethan Skolnick of Turner Sports reports.
Impact: Chalmers departed Saturday's preseason game with a hip pointer and did not return. The injury is nothing serious, but it could keep Chalmers out for another preseason game or two. In his absence Tuesday, expect Norris Cole to start, while rookie Shabazz Napier works with the second unit.

News: Hamilton (chest) will not play Tuesday against the Hawks.
Impact: Hamilton is still dealing with the after-effects of an atrial flutter, which required a procedure at the end of last month. He figures to return soon, though his fantasy value is about as minimal as it gets.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McRoberts (toe) will not play Tuesday against the Hawks.
Impact: McRoberts continues to be hampered by a toe injury, which he recently aggravated during practice. The team also revealed that McRoberts is dealing with back pain after straining his back on the first day of camp. The forward is being evaluated on a day-to-day basis, but his status for the season opener is up in the air at this point.
Sat. Oct 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chalmers left Saturday's preseason game against the Cavaliers with a hip pointer injury and will not return, Turner Sports reports.
Impact: Prior to exiting, Chalmers recorded three points on 1-of-2 shooting, with one rebound, one assist and two steals in 11 minutes. The team may just being taking precaution by holding him out for the remainder of the game, but Chalmers should be considered questionable to play Tuesday until the team elaborates.
Thu. Oct 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McRoberts (toe) participated in more of Thursday's practice than he has in previous days, Ethan Skolnick of Turner Sports reports.
Impact: McRoberts has been limited since the start of camp with a toe injury, and he'll likely remain sidelined for most of the preseason. The fact that he's increasing his participation is a positive sign, however, and ideally he'll be able to see action in a few preseason contests before the regular season begins.

News: Chalmers did not get the start at point guard Tuesday, the Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman reports.
Impact: It was only a preseason game, but Norris Cole, not Chalmers, ran point with the ones. This could be a fluid situation throughout camp, as both players have shown flashes of solid play in past seasons.
Tue. Oct 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cole got the start at point guard in Tuesday's preseason game, the Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman reports.
Impact: Mario Chalmers made some noise earlier in camp talking about how he would be able to do more with LeBron James gone, but that won't be so easy if Cole ends up starting at point guard. However, Tuesday's lineup certainly doesn't mean that Cole has officially passed Chalmers on the depth chart, but it's definitely something worth keeping an eye on.
Tue. Oct 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Andersen (toe) will be active for Tuesday's preseason game.
Impact: While he will be active, he may not play big minutes, as the Heat could opt to take a cautious approach with the backup center.
Tue. Oct 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hamilton (chest) will sit out Tuesday's preseason game against the Magic.
Impact: He is dealing with an atrial flutter in his chest, but he won't have much fantasy value this season as the third center on the Heat's depth chart.
Mon. Oct 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Andersen (calf/toe) practiced fully Monday, but coach Erik Spoelstra considers the big man questionable for Tuesday's preseason outing against the Magic, the Miami Herald reports.
Impact: Andersen's array of minor injuries held him to the bench in the Heat's preseason opener Saturday, and that caution could extend to another game. Because offseason addition Josh McRoberts (toe) may not be cleared for Opening Night, Andersen would be the favorite to factor into the frontcourt mix next to starting center Chris Bosh.
Mon. Oct 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McRoberts (toe) may not receive medical clearance in time to suit up for the Heat's season opener on Oct. 29 against the Wizards, the Miami Herald reports. Coach Erik Spoelstra said, "I anticipate he'll increase his workload significantly in the next week to 10 days."
Impact: Assuming 10 days pass before he's cleared, McRoberts' earliest return date appears to be Oct. 17 versus the Warriors. While he'll continue to ramp up his rehabilitation and practice reps, with the hope of taking the court on Opening Night, Udonis Haslem and Chris Andersen (calf/toe) are poised to fill in at power forward for the offseason pickup.

News: Granger produced 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and a team-high four assists in 22 minutes during Miami's preseason opener Saturday night versus New Orleans.
Impact: Granger played quite well in his Heat debut, converting a team best two three-pointers, while shooting an outstanding percentage overall. Furthermore, he got his new teammates involved with four assists. The veteran and James Ennis should compete for minutes at small forward off Miami's bench this season.
Oct 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ennis led the Heat with 17 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-10 FT) and six rebounds in 23 minutes during Saturday's preseason opener against the Pelicans.
Impact: Ennis is competing with veteran Danny Granger for minutes at small forward off the Heat's bench and impressed in his first game opportunity Saturday night. In addition to being aggressive going to the basket, Ennis was efficient from the field and tied for a team-high six rebounds.

News: Hamilton is expected to be sidelined for about a month after undergoing a procedure to repair a common abnormal heart rhythm. The team says a full recovery is expected.
Impact: Hamilton had a procedure Monday to repair what was diagnosed as an atrial flutter. The team says he will be sidelined for a few days, then go through about three weeks of non-contact exercise before returning. Hamilton averaged 3.3 points in eight NBA games last season, seven of those coming with the Heat.
