Chalmers was expected to start Friday against the Hawks, but ultimately came off the bench for 30 minutes of action. He contributed 13 points, one rebound, five assists, two steals, and one block.

It's unclear why the Heat chose to keep him on the bench Friday, but he still logged 30 minutes in the process. He's averaging 11.0 points, 1.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.2 three-pointers made over the last games. Thus, he should be considered a low-end player in 12-man formats at best.

Chalmers is the likely starter at shooting guard Friday against the Hawks.

With Dwyane Wade (knee) looking doubtful to play, coach Erik Spoelstra said the team will likely employ the same lineup it used Wednesday in Boston, which featured Chalmers in the backcourt alongside Goran Dragic. While Chalmers played 37 minutes, he scored only six points to go with seven assists a rebound and three turnovers.

Chalmers had six points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven assists, one rebounds and three turnovers in 37 minutes.

Chalmers was put in the starting lineup in place of Dwyane Wade (knee). Chalmers would be an ok option in daily games when Wade is out.

Chalmers will get the start at shooting guard Wednesday, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports.

The Heat are once again dealing with a rash of injuries, and with Dwyane Wade sitting out, Chalmers will join Goran Dragic in the starting backcourt.

Chalmers (knee) finished with 12 points (4-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, seven assists and four steals in 34 minutes during Saturday's overtime victory against the Kings.

Chalmers was considered a game-time decision coming into Saturday, but was able to play 34 minutes, so the knee didn't look to be a factor at all. He likely received some extra playing time with Goran Dragic sitting out due to a back injury, so we'll have to wait and see what his return means for Chalmers' minutes moving forward, but it will likely drop them considerably, therefore reducing his fantasy value. Keep an eye on him until Dragic returns.

Chalmers (knee) was active for Friday's game against the Wizards but coach Erik Spoelstra never called him into action.

Chalmers should be considered day-to-day moving forward as he continues to deal with soreness in his knee. His next opportunity to take the court will come against the Kings on Sunday.

Chalmers (knee) is active for Friday's game against the Wizards.

Chalmers has been dealing with some soreness in his knee of late but still feels well enough to take the court in his normal fashion off the bench Friday.

Chalmers (general soreness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards.

Chalmers, Chris Andersen and Luol Deng are all listed as questionable Friday due to soreness, so it appears Erik Spoelstra may be looking to get his player some rest. Check back prior to game-time for an update on the status of all three. If Chalmers is held out, Shabazz Napier could see increased minutes.

Chalmers' role on the Heat is now in question after the Heat's acquisition of Goran Dragic on Thursday.Chalmers and Norris Cole, who was traded to New Orleans on Thursday, were shuffled in and out of the starting lineup for each other through the first couple months of the season. Now, with Dragic and Dwayne Wade commanding the majority of minutes in the backcourt, it will be difficult for Chalmers to continue playing 31 minutes per game like he has so far this season. He should be slotted into a bench role going forward, and Chalmers will likely see a significant enough reduction in fantasy value that he'll be droppable in standard leagues sooner than later. For daily games, Chalmers could have some short-term value until Dragic is officially cleared to play for the Heat.

Chalmers (shin) played Friday despite injuring himself in Wednesday's game, but was limited to just seven points (2-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four assists in 25 minutes.

Chalmers has been seeing a larger role with Dwayne Wade out, but he's only broken double-digit points once in his past four games. The 28-year-old has been widely inconsistent this season, and isn't worth owning in most leagues. In 49 appearances this season, Chalmers is averaging 10.6 points on just 40.2 percent shooting, 2.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists.
