Miami Heat Roster

Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler (knee) has been tagged as questionable for the team's game on Friday night against the Boston Celtics. The last time he saw the floor was on November 16th. Butler has missed seven consecutive games with the same knee injury, but the questionable status seems promising for his chances to return. Miami as a whole has a laundry list of injuries. A lot more players look probable now, so hopefully that trend continues with Jimmy Butler as fantasy managers are impatiently waiting to have one of their best players back.
Miami Heat forward Nikola Jovic (foot) was forced to miss the team's last game with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He was listed as questionable before that game as well and he carries the same status heading into the Wednesday night contest against the Boston Celtics. This type of injury usually keeps players out for a little while. If he can't give it a go, Caleb Martin and Haywood Highsmith will most likely see some more opportunities. Miami has 12 players on the injury report though, so fantasy managers should check for updates all the way up until tipoff.
Miami Heat guard/forward Duncan Robinson is regarded as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Celtics, but he went through the shootaround and is expected to play. If he indeed returns, Robinson will be back from a four-game absence. The 28-year-old sniper has found his way back to Erik Spoelstra's plans this season and has been logging some good minutes off the bench, although Robinson's poor shooting has limited his fantasy value and he's not really a guy fantasy managers can count on.
Miami Heat guard Gabe Vincent (knee) is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday against Boston. He has been dealing with a left knee issue and is regarded as questionable, but Vincent took part in the shootaround and is expected to play. The 26-year-old has missed five of the past six games. Vincent has been a big part of the team's bench unit and he's had a solid season so far despite his shooting form being a bit streaky. His addition could be vital for the team because Miami continues to list Tyler Herro (ankle) on the injury report and there will be a spot to fill in the starting unit if Herro can't go.
Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against Boston. He recently returned from a left ankle sprain, but Herro has found himself back on the injury report with the same problem. It's a worrying situation for fantasy managers, but Herro hasn't missed any of the last three games despite carrying the questionable tag, so he could still be fine for the contest. The 22-year-old has struggled to score the basketball since returning from injury, but he posted a triple-double in his previous appearance and it should be only a matter of time before Herro finds his offensive rhythm again.
