Mario Chalmers not sure of role on Heat


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) Mario Chalmers is unsure of his place on the Heat, and it frustrates him. 

"I don’t even really know what my role is on this team anymore," Chalmers told the Miami Herald. "I don’t know what I’m supposed to be doing."

Chalmers has bounced between the starting lineup and the bench,and he's seen time at both guard spots. 

"A lot of people are out of rhythm, and you really don’t know what’s going to happen — when you’re going to get the ball, when you’re going to shoot it, you just never know. You just got to be ready for everything, I guess," he said.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Star guard Dwyane Wade is already sidelined indefinitely with a hamstring injury.

Heat's Mario Chalmers suffers shin contusion Wednesday vs. Wolves


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Heat guard Mario Chalmers suffered a shin contusion during the first quarter of Wednesday's game at Minnesota when he came down awkwardly on his left foot.

Chalmers had to be helped off the court and headed to the locker room. X-rays on the shin were negative and Chalmers was able to return to the game. 


Few positive signs emerging for Mario Chalmers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Heat guard Mario Chalmers got off to a strong start to the season, averaging 14.3 points per game on 45.6 percent shooting in the month of November. He has fallen apart since, and Fantasy owners have to wonder if he is even worth a roster spot at this point.

Chalmers had arguably the best stretch of his career from mid- to late-November, averaging 20.0 points and 7.0 assists over a six-game stretch. However, that stretch came to an end on Nov. 25 with a 4-for-17 performance against the Warriors, and he hasn't been able to find his show since. In 34 games since, Chalmers is still averaging 30.8 minutes per game, but is putting up just 8.9 points and 4.0 assists, while shooting just 35.8 percent from the field.

Chalmers has seemed more comfortable with the ball in his hands this season, and has salvaged at least something from his slump by continuing to get to the free-throw line. However, he has scored just 15 points in three games since Dwyane Wade's latest injury, and it's hard to see him turning it around. His minutes and shots have been inconsistent, and Chalmers is no longer a must-own Fantasy option. With how many guards are available in today's league, you probably don't want to rely on him as one of the first five guards on your depth chart at this point. 


Heat's Mario Chalmers receives flop warning from NBA


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2015) The NBA announced Wednesday Heat guard Mario Chalmers has been warned for violating the league's anti-flopping rule. The incident occurred in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's loss to the Bucks. His next violation will result in a fine.

Heat's Wade, Deng listed as questionable Tuesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) While Heat guard Dwyane Wade was able to participate in shootaround, his status for Tuesday’s game against the Thunder is unclear.

Wade missed the last two games with a hamstring injury. Coach Erik Spoelstra said Wade responded well to the shootaround and his playing status will be a game-time decision. Guards Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole and are expected to see an increased role if Wade is out.

Forward Luol Deng was not at the team's shootaround Tuesday and is also questionable. Deng is suffering from an illness which also caused him to miss Monday's practice. Forwards James Ennis and Danny Granger could be in line for more playing if Deng cannot play.

The Heat are 7 1/2-point underdogs.


Heat guard Dwyane Wade declared out Wednesday vs. Warriors


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) As expected, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters guard Dwyane Wade will not play in Wednesday’s game against the Warriors, reports The Palm Beach Post.

Wade previously strained his hamstring in November and missed seven games. His status for Friday’s game against the Kings has yet to be determined.

With Wade unable to play, guard Tyler Johnson could make his NBA debut. Guards Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers will also receive more playing time.

The Heat are 15-point underdogs to the Warriors.


Heat guard Dwyane Wade unlikely to play Wednesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) After straining his hamstring during Tuesday's win over the Lakers, Heat guard Dwyane Wade is doubtful to play during the team’s remaining road trip, reports ESPN.com.

While Wade said he would like to play Wednesday against the Warriors, the team's trainers ultimately have the final say.

"Our trainers won't let me do anything crazy," Wade said.

Wade is considered day to day and did not rule out playing the final game of the road trip Friday at Sacramento. If Wade is unable to play, guard Tyler Johnson could make his NBA debut. Guards Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers will also receive more playing time.

The Heat are 15-point underdogs to the Warriors.


Heat PG Mario Chalmers score team-high 19 vs. Lakers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) Heat point guard Mario Chalmers scored a team-high 19 points on 7 of 16 shooting in his team's 78-75 win over the Lakers Tuesday.

Chalmers hadn't reached double digits in points in eight straight games before scoring 19 Tuesday, which matched his best performance since the beginning of December. He ended up playing a bigger part in the offense after Dwyane Wade went down with a hamstring strain in the first half. The Heat are set to square off with the Warriors Wednesday.


Heat keeping Chalmers-Wade-Deng-Andersen-Bosh starting lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2014) Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said he will stay with the starting lineup of Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Chris Andersen and Chris Bosh going forward, according to The Palm Beach Post. Spoelstra used the same starting lineup during a 102-101 loss Monday against the Magic. 

The team's most frequent lineup this season has been Bosh, Deng, Wade, Norris Cole and Shawne Williams.


Heat list Dwyane Wade as questionable vs. 76ers


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) The Heat announced guard Dwyane Wade is listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game against the 76ers.

Wade missed Sunday’s victory over the Celtics with a knee contusion, but he was able to participate in the team’s shootaround Tuesday morning. Wade was replaced in Sunday’s starting lineup by guard Mario Chalmers.

The Heat are 7 1/2–point favorites.


Injuries leave Heat reeling from frontcourt injuries


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) The Heat's post-LeBron plans were based heavily on a frontcourt tandem of Chris Bosh and Josh McRoberts, the team's two biggest signings of the free agency period. However, with Chris Bosh dealing with a calf strain and Josh McRoberts set for season-ending knee surgery, those plans have gone awry, and Fantasy owners are left to sort through the pieces.

The Heat are used to playing without McRoberts, who was just ninth on the team in minutes played through the first 23 games of the season. However, Fantasy owners were starting to get excited about his return to health, since few big men can produce quite like McRoberts does. He was averaging 4.0 assists and 1.0 3-pointers per-36 minutes, but at least the Heat have an in-house option to replace him in the form of Shawne Williams. Williams averaged 12.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.6 3-pointers per game through the first 10, which McRoberts mostly missed with injuries.

Finding someone to replace Bosh will be a bigger test, though it is likely one the team won't have to deal with for too long. Bosh acknowledged his calf injury could cost him a few weeks Monday, though that seems like a worst-case scenario. For the time being, Justin Hamilton and Chris Andersen are likely to see larger roles, but neither warrants more than a cursory glance in deeper Fantasy leagues for the time being.

For Fantasy Week 8, you might want to slip Williams, Luol Deng and Mario Chalmers into your starting lineups, especially with Dwyane Wade fighting an illness. Long term, however, it remains to be seen just how the Heat will deal with these injuries. 


Mario Chalmers worth owning, even off the bench


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Heat guard Mario Chalmers was fantastic in Dwyane Wade's absence, and disappeared with Wade back in the fold Sunday. Should Fantasy owners be panicking about his value moving forward?

Chalmers moved back to the bench and played just 24 minutes in a 3-point showing Sunday against the Knicks, though it seems fair to say his limited minutes were the result of foul trouble more than anything. Chalmers still averaged 12.0 points and 4.1 assists per game in the first nine games of the season off the bench, which should make him a solid Fantasy option moving forward.

Chalmers also averaged 18.5 points and 5.8 assists per game in his six starts, and should be the primary beneficiary of Wade's injury woes. He is more of a Fantasy reserve off the bench, but Chalmers' upside as a Wade handcuff makes him a must-own player for the long-haul. 


Heat G Chalmers leaves Wednesday practice with illness


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Heat guard Mario Chalmers was excused from Wednesday practice early due to an illness, per the South Florida Sun Sentinel. He will have plenty of time to recover - his team does not play another game until Monday at New York.

Chalmers is averaging a career-high 14.6 points a game

Heat to lean on Mario Chalmers as combo guard in 2014-15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) Heat guard Mario Chalmers is being asked to take on more of a combo-guard role in 2014-15 after primarily playing the point in his NBA career, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

"Now he's being able to display a little bit more versatility," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "The Golden State game, he literally was playing point guard one possession, off the ball one possession.

"We forced him to become a point guard. We've developed that aspect of his game for six years … That's six years in the makings. If you're expecting a young player to do that immediately in this league, there's no chance."
