Mario Chalmers PG MIA 12 Days

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.

Chalmers (shin) will play in Friday's game, the Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman reports.

He injured his shin in Wednesday's game, but will play through the injury Friday. With Dwyane Wade out, Chalmers along with Shabazz Napier and Norris Cole should see the bulk of the backcourt minutes against the Spurs.

Chalmers (shin) is questionable for Friday night's game against the Spurs, according to his coach.

Wednesday's injury looked pretty rough, and Chalmers continuing to play couldn't have helped his outlook for Friday. A healthy Chalmers is a risky play, an injured one should not be played except under the direst of circumstances. With Dwayne Wade still out, the Heat will have to scrape the bottom of their backcourt depth to find bodies for shooting guard spot.

Chalmers suffered a left shin contusion Wednesday in Minnesota but returned to the game.

Chalmers scored 21 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-12 FT), his most since Nov. 22, and dished out eight assists in 34 minutes of action in a loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.

While Chalmers did have a solid game, his production in the past two months doesn't warrant a pickup in most leagues. In his previous 12 games in January, he's averaging just 8.4 points on 38.3 percent shooting, 3.6 assists and 2.5 rebounds.

Chalmers scored three points (1-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), to go along with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 28 minutes on Sunday.

Chalmers had contributions across the board, but didn't really do anything to impress fantasy-wise. He has a starting role and is locked in a minutes battle with Norris Cole, which makes him a low tier option at point guard. If you want to take a gamble, go ahead, however there are other options on the board who can offer what Chalmers does.

Chalmers played 19 minutes as a starter in the blowout loss to the Rockets on Saturday. He had three points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and five assists.

The game was not close, so coach Eric Spoelstra gave more minutes to Norris Cole and even Andre Dawkins. Chalmers should return to regular minutes in Sunday's game against Brooklyn, but don't expect eye-popping minutes.

Chalmers will continue to start at point guard going forward, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said Tuesday that he'll continue with the backcourt of Chalmers and Dwyane Wade, who have started the last four games together. Chalmers began the season as the backup to Norris Cole, but the two have apparently flip-flopped roles, as Cole now serves as the first guard off the bench. The pair have started together on certain occasions, and it's likely to happen again at some point, with the health of Wade seemingly always up in the air.
