Fantasy Impact: Adebayo averaged 18.7 points, nine rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game during the 2020-21 regular season. The 23-year old center has committed to joining the 12-man roster for Team USA, who will compete against NBA stars from other countries to attempt winning back-to-back gold medals.

Kendrick Nunn scored 18 points (7-15 Fg, 2-6 3pt, 2-2 Ft) one rebound, one assist, and one steal across 27 minutes in the Heat's 120-103 Game 4 loss to the Bucks on Saturday afternoon in Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Nunn had his best game of the series in Game 4 on Saturday, unfortunately for himself and the rest of his Miami teammates they'll be heading home as they were swept in four games. For the series Nunn averaged 10.2 ppg.

Jimmy Butler scored 12 points (4-15 Fg, 4-4 Ft) 10 rebounds, and 10 assists across 38 minutes in the Heat's 120-103 Game 4 loss to the Bucks on Saturday afternoon in Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Butler may have had a triple-double but he didn't shoot the ball well at all in Game 4 connecting on just 26% of his shots from the field. The Heat were severely outmatched in this rematch from last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals and will now have a much longer offseason then they had anticipated.

Goran Dragic scored eight points (3-14 Fg, 2-6 3Pt) three steals, two assists, one rebound, and one block across 29 minutes in the Heat's 113-84 Game 3 loss to the Bucks in Miami on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact: Dragic was just dreadful from the field on Thursday night shooting just 21% from the floor for the Heat. This series is just about over and the Heat look like they can't wait for it to be done. Game 3 will take place on Saturday afternoon in Miami.

Duncan Robinson scored two points (1-6 Fg) three rebounds, and one steal in 24 minutes of action in the Heat's 113-84 Game 3 blowout loss to the Bucks on Thursday night in South Beach.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson's games have gotten progressively worse since Game 1 of the series when he scored 24 points and hit seven three's. Since then the sharp-shooter has averaged six points in the last two games. Things aren't looking good for the Heat and they will be fighting off elimination on Saturday afternoon when they face the Bucks in Game 4 at home.

Tyler Herro scored three points (1-9 Fg, 1-2 Ft) six rebounds, and two assists in 17 minutes of play in the Heat's 122-108 loss to the Bucks on Saturday in Milwaukee.

Fantasy Impact: Herro was beyond disappointing on Saturday which pretty much summed up his second season in the league. After a strong performance on Thursday against the Sixers he then showed why he's been so inconsistent this year. Very much a Jekyll and Hyde season for the second-year player. The regular season wraps up on Sunday when the Heat take on the Pistons in Detroit.

Heat G Victor Oladipo is expected to undergo season-ending surgery on his right quadriceps tendon Thursday. At this moment, there is no timetable for his return, but he has been ruled out for at least the remainder of the 2021 season. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's a huge loss for Miami, who although had been without Oladipo for a month, would've greatly benefited from his return in the playoffs. Expect F Trevor Ariza and G Kendrick Nunn to continue logging minutes in Oladipo's place as the Heat attempt to secure their playoff seeding.

Trevor Ariza scored 18 points (7-10 Fg, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 Ft) two rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block across 23 minutes in the Heat's 124-107 win over the Cavs in Cleveland on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Ariza had a four game stretch for the Heat where averaged 14.7 ppg which was from April 11-16 but since than has averaged just 8.2 ppg. His inconsistency makes him too unreliable to consider for fantasy owner's. Next up for the Heat is a matchup with the Hornets on Sunday night.

Andre Iguodala has been ruled out with hip soreness ahead of the Heat's game Saturday against Cleveland. (Source: Anthony Chiang on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: KZ Okpala (protocols) was also ruled out for this game. Iguodala was listed as questionable entering this game, but it will sideline him. Trevor Ariza should see more playing time with Iguodala sidelined.

Miami Heat PG/SG Gabe Vincent (knee) is probable to play against the Indiana Pacers after being tagged with right knee soreness. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Vincent played during Monday's 98-88 win over the Knicks, logging five points, three rebounds, and a steal across 15 minutes. He is not a plug-and-play starter but can be rostered in deeper leagues, adding depth to the point guard position. Vincent should not be inserted into your DFS lineups against a Pacers team with a talented defensive front-court. Vincent will be challenged in the paint all night long, forcing him to the perimeter where he does not generate much production.

Miami Heat SG Avery Bradley (calf) will not play Tuesday against the Phoenix Suns as he continues to deal with a strained right calf. (Source: Tim Reynolds on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro should continue to play 30+ minutes each with Bradley still sidelined due to a right calf strain. Robinson is the cheaper player on FanDuel against the Suns on Tuesday but Tyler Herro at $5,200 is a better value, as he has scored at least 18 points in three consecutive games.

Kelly Olynyk scored 17 points (7-13 Fg, 1-5 3 Pt, 2-3 Ft) eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, and two blocks in 34 minutes of action in the Heat's 113-98 win over the Cavs on Tuesday night in Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Olynyk wasn't impacted by the return of Adebayo at least for one night. It remains to be seen if he can keep contributing on a consistent basis for Miami. He's worth monitoring for the time being. The Heat will travel to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

Heat forward Meyers Leonard is out indefinitely after using an anti-Semitic slur on the live stream, the team says. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Teammates Kelly Olynyk and Precious Achiuwa will continue to play the minutes at the power forward position. It'll be worth monitoring any updates on Leonard's status with the Heat going forward.
