News: The Heat recalled forward Jarvis Varnado from the Sioux Falls Skyforce, the team announced Sunday.
Analysis: Varnado is one of the few players on the Heat's roster that the team is trying to develop, which is why he has been sent down numerous times throughout the year. While he could see some run over the final few games of the year, the 25-year-old really doesn't have any Fantasy value right now.
News: Miami power forward Jarvis Varnado checked in during the final moments of Thursday's 117-104 victory over the Trail Blazers. Varnado, who came in for Chris Bosh, did not attempt a shot and was held scoreless in one minute of game action.
Analysis: Varnado has only appeared in two games since signing for the remainder of the regular season. In fact, the 24-year-old out of Mississippi State has only scored two points in four appearances since joining the team in early January. Varnado is a marginal contributor, at best, and will have a hard time finding minutes in Miami. Continue to ignore him in all Fantasy formats moving forward.
News: According to Yahoo! Sports, the Heat have agreed to sign power forward Jarvis Varnado for the remainder of the season.
Analysis: Varnado completed both of his 10-day contracts with Miami and apparently has done enough to earn a spot for the remainder of the season. He has only logged 12 minutes of game action during his 10-day contracts with Miami and has been a marginal contributor, scoring just two points combined in that span. Continue to ignore him in all Fantasy formats for now.
News: Miami resigned power forward Jarvis Varnado to another 10-day contract Saturday. Varnado will continue to serve as bench depth for the Heat.
Analysis: The 24-year-old Varnado has played in seven games this season for Miami and is averaging 4.3 minutes per game. He has low-end Fantasy value in all leagues.
News: Forward Jarvis Varnado was able to clear waivers and has been signed to a 10-day contract by the Miami Heat, reports Yahoo! Sports. Varnado was released by the Celtics last Sunday, which was the day before his contract would have become guaranteed for the season.
Analysis: Varnado was signed with the Celtics to provide some depth at forward when Chris Wilcox went down with an injury, but he only averaged 1.2 points in the five games he appeared in. However, he likely will have a hard time finding minutes with the Heat as well, who are also just looking for depth on their bench. Fantasy owners should continue to ignore Varnado in all formats at this point in the season.
News: The Celtics released forwards Kris Joseph and Jarvis Varnado on Sunday, one day before their contracts were due to become guaranteed for the remainder of the season. Both players averaged fewer than five minutes per game during their tenure with Boston.
Analysis: Varnado signed with the Cletics in late December to help fill the void of Chris Wilcox, who was sidelined with a wrist injury. But he appeared in only five games and averaged 1.2 points per game. Fantasy owners should not consider him a worthwhile option at this point.
News: Boston has officially signed power forward Jarvis Varnado formerly of the Sioux Falls in the D-League, reports the Boston Globe Monday. Reports of the signing surfaced Sunday. Varnado averaged 14 points with 10 rebounds and 3.9 blocks in 10 games with the Skyforce.
Analysis: Varnado was a second-round pick of the Miami Heat in 2010, and has played overseas in Italy and Israel over the past two seasons. The Celtics want to let Fab Melo continue to develop in the D-League so Varnado will give them some size and rebounding for their depleted front court. Based on his numbers in the D-League, the 24-year-old should be able to help out owners in deeper Fantasy formats as long as he sees minutes in Boston. Consider scooping up Varnado heading into Week 9 (Dec. 24-30) in the deepest of formats.
