The Heat remained competitive this season, and it has a lot do with their scrappy roster and good coaching staff. They lack a star youthful player to build around, as Justise Winslow did not pan out to be the star, but is a quality wing player. Miami is going to be in contention to sign some free agents or make a move down the line. In a weaker Eastern Conference this team will be in line for the last four into the playoffs. Goran Dragic isn’t an elite talent at point guard, but continues to produce solid fantasy numbers. Dragic doesn’t have much competition as Tyler Johnson just sits as a depth guard behind him.

Game Result

Dion Waiters had surgery last season and was a major usage player when healthy. Waiters is not a good basketball player, but sometimes volume trumps efficiency, and that is Waiters. If healthy he is going to suck away some usage from Dragic and other offensive players. Josh Richardson and Winslow will take a bulk of the workload at the three, and while they don’t stand out like some of the elite small forwards they will have their value. Winslow could see some time at the four given only James Johnson and Kelly Olynyk remain as power forward options. Both also can play center and Miami is not committed to Hassan Whiteside. We saw the big center drop some big games, especially with blocks, but he was also one to sit out fourth quarters due to opposing lineups going small. Bam Adebayo could take a jump in minutes this season, who is one of the younger centers. Miami will look to add some depth in the front court, and now with Anthony in Houston, the market has dried up quite a bit.
