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.

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 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.
