Birdman on emergence of Whiteside: 'S---, he's doing everything with ease'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Heat forward Chris Andersen shared his thoughts on the emergence of center Hassan Whiteside on Monday. When asked if there are any similarities between he and Whiteside, Andersen shook his head in disagreement.

"Absolutely not. He does everything 10 times better than I do it. With his length and his wingspan and jumping ability -- shit, he's doing everything with ease," Andersen said, per the Palm Beach Post. It looks like a video game deal where you create your own guy and he gets in there and just does what he does. It's fun to watch. You can imagine what his career's gonna be like. I try to pass my experience on to him and give him a little insight of what I've learned over the years. In a way, he does what I do. But he's got a soft hook. I ain't got that. He has a nice jumper. I got that. His length with his arms is amazing."

As of Jan. 1, Whiteside has the highest PER (32.0) in the NBA, topping the likes of Anthony Davis (31.0), Stephen Curry (29.4), James Harden (28.9) and LeBron James (28.2). He's also on pace to have the fourth-highest rebound percentage while on the floor in league history. Through 24 games, he has averaged 9.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per contest. He has eight double-doubles and one triple-double over that span.

Andersen missed Tuesday's game while nursing elbow and back injuries. He has averaged 5.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 29 games while shooting 60.5 percent from the field.

The Heat are 8 1/2-point home underdogs Friday.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Meanwhile, the Heat expect center Chris Andersen to return in Friday’s contest. Andersen missed Tuesday's game while dealing with elbow and back issues.


Heat rule Andersen, Deng out of Tuesday's game vs. Bucks


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) The Heat announced center Chris Andersen and forward Luol Deng have been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

Heat's Andersen questionable, Deng doubtful for Tuesday's game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Heat's Pat Riley denies he had a package deal for Nets' Brook Lopez


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Heat president Pat Riley denied previous reports that Miami had offered forward Josh McRoberts in a package deal for Nets center Brook Lopez, according to the Miami Herald. According to a previous report from Yahoo! Sports, Miami offered McRoberts, Norris Cole and Chris Andersen for Lopez. Trade talks for Lopez died down, but could ramp back up leading up to the trade deadline.

"There's a lot of conversation but we're not active," Riley said. "I'm not going to move chairs. I've been in the chair-moving business before and that's all you do is move chairs around…

"If there is something that makes sense that can really help us, then we would consider it. But we're not about to give up assets that we don’t have, that we need, to make a lateral move out of desperation, to take what I think is a playoff team to make the playoffs. If it's a player to take us into the future, we'll think about it. It's fluid."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

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.
