Heat PF Chris Andersen tweaks ankle Friday, will return


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) Heat power forward Chris Andersen tweaked his right ankle Friday but will return to his team's game against the Wizards, the team announced.

Andersen drew his second straight start Friday with Chris Bosh still sidelined. He has averaged 2.7 points and 3.9 rebounds in 12 games.


Heat PF Chris Andersen draws start Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Heat power forward Chris Andersen will be making his first career start for the Heat Wednesday against the Jazz.

The Heat will be without Chris Bosh (ankle) and Josh McRoberts (knee) Wednesday. Andersen has played 125 regular-season games with the Heat as a reserve, averaging 5.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in 17.6 minutes per game.


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.
