Norris Cole PG MIA 3 Days

Cole needed to play heavy minutes for a depleted Heat team that needed all the help they could get. He finished with 10 points (3-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six points, five rebounds, and three steals in 40 minutes on Sunday.

Cole had plenty of opportunities to shoot the ball against the Bulls, but he wasn't able to get much of anything going. He's a very streaky player and is still in a minutes battle with Mario Chalmers this season. Because of this Cole is a player for those in deeper leagues until he can prove he's a viable player on a night-to-night basis.

Cole scored six points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and added eight rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 28 minutes of action against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

In a night where the Heat where flat from the floor, Cole also struggled shooting on the night. He did have strong contributions elsewhere as he added rebounds, assists and a steal. Cole has put out stronger performances in each of his last three games.

Cole started against the Suns on Tuesday and scored 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and added three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 31 minutes of work.

This wasn't a great fantasy night by any means, but this is a step in the right direction. Cole received the start on Tuesday and was able to manage the game by not turning the ball over once, which is always a great asset to have when you're fighting for the point guard position. If he continues his solid play, he may increase his fantasy value.
