Dion Waiters confirmed as starter for Heat, Wayne Ellington demoted

Miami Heat guard/forward Dion Waiters (ankle) will return to the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Orlando Magic, sending Wayne Ellington back to the bench. What It Means: Waiters is expected to be fully available for tonight's game, and he makes for a solid play in a plus matchup. Ellington loses the majority of his value with Waiters back. Our models project Waiters for 14.0 points, 3.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 3-pointers in 27.9 minutes in his return to action on Monday. Source: Rotoworld.com

Dion Waiters (ankle) remains on track to return Monday for Heat

Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play Friday for the Heat

Miami Heat guard/forward Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night. What It Means: Wayne Ellington turned in 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting while filling in for Waiters on Wednesday, adding 5 triples, 2 rebounds and an assist in 28 minutes. He's worth the look on DFS and for owners in need of long-range help. Tyler Johnson owners can also bank on additional usage sans Waiters. Without yet accounting for Waiters' absence, our models already like Ellington as a decent value play on Friday night with his $3,700 price tag on FanDuel. For now, we...

Wayne Ellington enters Miami's first unit on Wednesday

Miami Heat shooting guard Wayne Ellington will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, with Dion Waiters (ankle) unavailable. What It Means: Tyler Johnson remains the preferred DFS target, but he costs $5,600 on FanDuel, compared to a $3,600 price tag for Ellington. The latter is averaging 11.6 points, 2.2 assists and 2.1 3-pointers per game in 10 starts this season, so he's a solid budget play. numberFire's metrics expect Ellington to play 30.9 minutes on Wednesday night, and we project him to turn in 12.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.7...

Dion Waiters (ankle) ruled out for Miami on Wednesday night

Miami Heat guard/forward Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. What It Means: Waiters was already listed as doubtful and failed to make it through shootaround, so consider him questionable for Friday's matchup with the Brooklyn Nets. Tyler Johnson will be the primary beneficiary while Wayne Ellington and Rodney McGruder also see extra run. Waiters shouldn't be on the shelf long. Our models project Johnson to be the best value play from the Heat tonight, with 17.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 4.1 3-pointers over 35.9...

Miami Heat guard Tyler Johnson (shoulder) will warm up to play on Monday versus the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: It sounds like Johnson will be able to return after a five-game absence, and he should be owned in all leagues. Dion Waiters and Wayne Ellington are going to take a steep hit in value with Johnson back in the rotation. Assuming he plays, our models project Johnson for 14.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over 31.1 minutes against the Nets.

Miami's Tyler Johnson is questionable for Monday

Miami Heat guard Tyler Johnson (shoulder) is questionable for Monday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: Johnson was a game time decision on Saturday so he is close to being ready. If he does return on Monday, Wayne Ellington and Dion Waiters would lose the most value, with Ellington seeing the biggest fall. Johnson is flirting with Sixth Man of the Year if he can stay healthy and continue his strong season. If he does play on Monday, our models project Johnson for 14.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists over 31.1 minutes against the Nets....
