Fantasy Update

Mar 21, 2017

Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said that he'll stick with guard Josh Richardson in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phoenix Suns. What It Means: Richardson played well on Sunday as a starter scoring 10 points on 4-for-8 from the floor and he will get another crack at a high-paced team that doesn't play a lot of defense on Tuesday. Wayne Ellington should also see a minutes boost tonight, but Richardson is the better fantasy option. Our models project Richardson for 10.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 steals over 32.0 minutes against the Suns....

Miami Heat guard/forward Wayne Ellington is likely to start for guard Dion Waiters (ankle) on Sunday. What It Means: Waiters has already been ruled out, which should give Ellington some nice run in this one. Look for Josh Richardson to also be in play tonight and it could potentially give Tyler Johnson some more minutes off the bench as well. Our models project Ellington for 11.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists over 25.0 minutes against the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. Source: Rotoworld.com

Tyler Johnson (neck, shoulder) being held out by Miami on Monday

Miami Heat guard Tyler Johnson (neck, shoulder) will not play on Monday versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. What It Means: Johnson is experiencing soreness in his shoulder, the same one that caused him to miss five games back in January, but there is not much long-term concern about it. Dion Waiters, Josh Richardson, and Wayne Ellington will see extra minutes on Monday with Goran Dragic in line for a heavy scoring load. Dragic was projected for 33.9 fantasy points before word came out of Johnson's absence. He makes for a great upside play at a $7,500 price...
