Granger (hamstring) did not play in Saturday's win over the magic.
Granger is likely questionable for Sunday's game, but it's also possible the team simply opted to rest Granger Saturday so that he'd be rested to play Sunday. The Heat haven't been using Granger much this season, and he's dealt with lingering injuries that have become the staple of his career over the last few seasons. Granger is highly unlikely to hold fantasy value for a prolonged stretch this season.

Granger only played six minutes off the bench Thursday as he continues to deal with lingering hamstring issues, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Granger saw his minutes go from 20 on Monday to just six on Thursday. He actually made the start for the Heat on Monday but gave way to Shannon Brown down the stretch as Granger may have exerted himself too quickly in his first game of the season. As of right now Granger will likely see limited minutes moving forward until he's made a full recovery from this injury.

Granger (hamstring) scored four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) to go along with one block in 20 minutes Monday against the Nets.
Granger did not play very well in his first game this season for the Heat. He was pushed into a starting role with Luol Deng (wrist) and Dwayne Wade (hamstring) out of action, so don't expect him to see significant playing time when everyone is healthy.

Granger (hamstring) is starting at small forward in his Heat debut Monday at Brooklyn.
Miami is without Luol Deng (wrist) and Dwyane Wade (hamstring) on the wing, and coach Erik Spoelstra has deemed that the situation is right for Granger's first game of the season. As a result, there are plenty of minutes to go around, but it's unclear what kind of workload Granger can handle at this stage in his career.

Granger (hamstring) will dress for Sunday's game but will only be used in an emergency situation, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
In all likelihood, Granger won't see any minutes Sunday night, but with both Dwayne Wade (hamstring) and Josh McRoberts (foot) ruled out, he'll suit up as a precaution. With Granger on the shelf, look for Shannon Brown and James Ennis to see extra minutes for the Sunday evening tilt. Granger will look to be used in a greater capacity in Monday's showdown with the Nets.

Granger is still dealing with a lingering hamstring injury, so he will not be in the lineup Friday. He has yet to play this season, but has been listed as active for the past few games, which means he' probably not too far off from a return. His next opportunity to return will be on Sunday against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Granger (hamstring) will dress for Wednesday's game but is unlikely to play, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Granger, who is dealing with a hamstring issue after undergoing knee surgery this summer, is yet to play this season, despite being listed as active for a number of games. It appears that trend will continue Wednesday, which means Luol Deng should see the lion's share of minutes at small forward once again.

Granger (hamstring) has yet to play this season despite being listed on the active roster for some games.
Granger underwent knee surgery over the summer, and he's dealt with a hamsrting injury for over a month that has left him out of the action for the Heat so far this season. In 70 games split between the Pacers, Sixers, and Clippers last season, Granger averaged 8.3 points and 3.4 rebounds in 21 minutes per game. Due to his persistent health issues, there aren't many positive expectations for Granger this season.

Granger (hamstring) will dress out Saturday, but there's no guarantee that he'll actually take the court, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Granger hasn't been able to play this season but it appears that he'll get an opportunity to take the court if coach Erik Spoelstra decides that the Heat need his efforts. With that in mind, it might be best to hold off on Granger until he makes a full recovery from his tight hamstring.

Granger (hamstring) practiced in full on Friday, and is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves.
Granger has yet to make his 2014-15 regular season debut, but could have the chance Saturday after participating in a full practice Friday. Considering it's still early in the season, the Heat probably aren't in too big of a hurry to push Granger back into action unless they're sure he's completely ready to go and healthy.
