Chalmers (knee) admitted that he was bothered by his right knee throughout the 2014-15 season, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Chalmers recently underwent surgery on the knee to repair an inflamed Plica, which he said had affected him since near the start of the season. "It was giving me a little issues throughout the whole year," Chalmers said. "It's been something that's going on for a while, but I was able to play through it. I feel like right now is the perfect time for me to go in and get and get it cleaned out especially going into a contract year, and a big year for us as the Heat." At present, Chalmers remains limited in terms of what he can do, but he said he's expecting to progress to on-court work at the beginning of the July. "I've still got quite a ways from being full back," he said. "I'm working on bending my knee and getting my range of motion back." The 29-year-old appeared in 80 games last season, spending time both as a starter and a reserve. Chalmers ended the season playing behind Goran Dragic, which is likely to be the case to begin 2015-16, which is the final season of the two-year deal he signed last summer.

Chalmers was forced to come off the bench for a majority of the second half of the season after the Heat traded for Goran Dragic at the February trade deadline. Chalmers averaged 10.2 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.9 three-pointers, and 30 minutes per game in 80 games during the 2014-15 season.

Although Chalmers had a career high in points per game during the 2014-15 season, his rebounds, assists, steals, and three-pointers per game were down from 2013-14, making his fantasy production a bit of a disappointment this year. Chalmers took a backseat to Goran Dragic and Dwayne Wade, calling for a bench role during the latter half of the season. Chalmers began his offseason with a minor knee surgery, but he should be fully recovered by the start of training camp so it is nothing to worry about heading into next season. If Dragic returns to the Heat for the 2015-16 season, Wade stays healthy, and Miami's young guards continue to emerge, there could be a decline in fantasy value for Chalmers to the point of not being relevant in most standard leagues. As Chalmers enters the last year of his contract with the Heat, it appears he will be coming off the bench and must perform well to earn minutes and possibly work his way back into the starting lineup if Dragic signs elsewhere.

Chalmers underwent an arthroscopic procedure to repair an inflamed Plica in his right knee Friday.

The minor surgery took only 20 minutes, and Chalmers is expected to begin rehabbing the knee immediately. The team issued a statement saying Chalmers will be ready for training camp, so it doesn't look to be anything that will carry over into 2015-16.

Chalmers (illness) recorded two points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, and two assists during 25 minutes of work against the Bulls on Thursday.

Chalmers was dealing with an illness ahead of Thursday's game but managed to assume his normal role off the bench against the Bulls despite the fear that he wouldn't be playing at all. As a result, Chalmers is expected to be available for the final few games of the season.

Chalmers (illness) has been cleared to play Thursday versus the Bulls, the Palm Beach Posts reports.

Chalmers was contained to nine minutes of court time Tuesday as a result of an illness. He's feeling well enough to play, though, meaning he should log the 26 minutes per game that he logged in the five contests prior to Tuesday's abbreviated outing.

Chalmers (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game agains the Bulls, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Miami's nightmarish spree of injuries continues, as Chalmers could miss Wednesday's game after an illness limited him to only nine minutes Tuesday against Charlotte. If he's unable to go, Goran Dragic will likely pick up a few extra minutes, as could Tyler Johnson off the bench.

Chalmers, who played just nine minutes Tuesday night, has the flu and needed two liters of fluid through an IV, Ethan J. Skolnick of Turner Sports reports.

The Heat were playing with several dinged up and fatigued players Tuesday night, but managed to hold on for a 105-100 win over the Hornets. Consider Chalmers day-to-day and questionable leading into Thursday's game against Chicago.

Chalmers filled in for Dwayne Wade (knee) in Tuesday's loss to the Cavaliers and was held to six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 26 minutes but did add on two rebounds, seven assists and two steals.

Chalmers saw his average amount of action Tuesday despite Wade's absence. However, if Wade misses any time with the knee bruise he suffered early on in the game, Chalmers would likely get the start.
