Udonis Haslem PF MIA 5 Days

Udonis Haslem (illness) neared a double-double in Friday's win over the Pacers, scoring 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting with nine rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes.

If the Heat continue to roll with Haslem in order to ready him for the playoffs, he has some mild appeal if you're hunting points and boards.

Udonis Haslem (illness) is expected to play in Friday's game against the Pacers.

Haslem sat out Tuesday and Wednesday. He'll likely return to his starting power forward role in this showdown of Eastern Conference powers. The Heat trail the Pacers by just a half-game for the No. 1 seed.

Udonis Haslem (illness) did not travel for Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

He missed Tuesday vs. the Nets and he will miss his second straight game. The Heat went with a smaller lineup on Tuesday and will likely do so again with Shane Battier in the starting lineup.

Udonis Haslem won't play on Tuesday due to a stomach virus, shifting Shane Battier into the starting lineup.

Haslem started the past six games and seems like Miami's preferred starting PF for the playoffs. The impact of his absence is somewhat lessened by the fact that Chris Andersen (back) will be active for Tuesday's game vs. Brooklyn.

Udonis Haslem will start vs. the Wolves on Friday.

He started alongside Chris Bosh on Wednesday and it seems he'll continue to start as long as Greg Oden (back) remains on the sidelines. He's averaging a mere 5.3 points per game in his 12 starts this season, unfortunately, which crystallizes his lack of fantasy appeal.

Udonis Haslem started and scored a season-high 17 points on 8-of-11 shooting with five rebounds and one block in Friday's blowout win over the Pistons.

The Heat are going to be a mess over the next few weeks and owners will want to watch the injury report closely. We wouldn't advise a pickup of Haslem for anything but very deep league spot duty when it's known he'll get heavy run. Chris Andersen has been paying dividends more or less lately and posted 13 points, six boards, one steal and hit 5-of-6 shots from the line.

Udonis Haslem will start in place of Greg Oden (back) on Friday vs. the Pistons.

He's turned in a couple good games and the Pistons actually aren't great on defense even with their size. Haslem is a risky spot-start guy in deeper leagues.

Udonis Haslem will start at center against the Pelicans on Saturday in place of Greg Oden (rest).

It will be his second start in his last three games. His last start was a prosperous one with a season-high 14 points, but that was also because LeBron James did not play in that game. Haslem is a desperation play in daily formats.

Udonis Haslem was in the starting lineup with LeBron James and Greg Oden in street clothes on Wednesday and hit 7-of-8 shots for 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and two blocks in a loss to the Celtics.

Even with James out this was tough to see coming, as he had played a total of 26 minutes in the entire month of March coming in.

Udonis Haslem will get the start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Greg Oden is resting on the second half of a back-to-back set which allows Haslem to get the seventh start of the season. He played just 16.0 minutes per game in his previous six starts, so he's not an option in most fantasy leagues.
