Mario Chalmers PG MIA 1 Month

Chalmers (hip pointer) will play Friday, Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman reports.

Chalmers suffered the injury a week ago, and missed Tuesday's preseason game to recover. The injury was never thought to be serious though, and his return in Friday's game confirms that he will be ready to go for the season opener.

Chalmers (hip) will not play Tuesday against the Hawks, Ethan Skolnick of Turner Sports reports.

Chalmers departed Saturday's preseason game with a hip pointer and did not return. The injury is nothing serious, but it could keep Chalmers out for another preseason game or two. In his absence Tuesday, expect Norris Cole to start, while rookie Shabazz Napier works with the second unit.

Chalmers left Saturday's preseason game against the Cavaliers with a hip pointer injury and will not return, Turner Sports reports.

Prior to exiting, Chalmers recorded three points on 1-of-2 shooting, with one rebound, one assist and two steals in 11 minutes. The team may just being taking precaution by holding him out for the remainder of the game, but Chalmers should be considered questionable to play Tuesday until the team elaborates.

Chalmers did not get the start at point guard Tuesday, the Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman reports.

It was only a preseason game, but Norris Cole, not Chalmers, ran point with the ones. This could be a fluid situation throughout camp, as both players have shown flashes of solid play in past seasons.

Mario Chalmers said he was surprised about LeBron James leaving the Heat.

"I never thought anybody would want to leave Miami for Cleveland but you grow up and you move on," Chalmers said. "That's what happened and there's no love lost." LeBron yelled at Chalmers more times than most people can count and it should be interesting to see his demeanor with the different roster. Chalmers' fantasy value figures to increase now that he'll have more responsibilities on offense.

The details of Mario Chalmers' two-year deal with the Miami Heat have been released.

Chalmers will make $4.0 million during the 20140-15 season and $4.3 during the 2015-16 season. Chalmers will serve as the de factor starting point guard heading into training camp and should provide more fantasy value than in previous seasons, as long as he can hold off Norris Cole and Shabazz Napier.

Free agent PG Mario Chalmers confirmed on Twitter that he will re-sign with the Heat.

Chalmers wrote, "Proud to say I'm back [with] the Heat. Heat nation we still here." Details of his contract haven't been disclosed, but Chalmers slots in as Miami's default starting PG with Norris Cole and Shabazz Napier backing up the position.

With the Heat's so-called Big 3 all opting out of their contracts (Chris Bosh will do so on Monday), the Heat are expected to keep Bosh, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, but will likely not be able to re-sign PG Mario Chalmers.

With PG Norris Cole the only Heat player under contract right now, and rookie Shabazz Napier on hand, Chalmers is clearly expendable, especially after his disastrous postseason performance. The Heat are expected to add one more big name this summer, with the targets being Carmelo Anthony, Kyle Lowry, Marcin Gortat and Trevor Ariza, for starters. Chalmers could still end up returning to the Heat, but as of now, that seems like an unlikely scenario.

Mario Chalmers didn't enter Game 5 until the mid-way point of the third quarter, finishing Miami's season-ending loss with eight points and zero assists in 15 minutes.

The Heat bench scored two points in the first half and 24 points overall, while the Spurs bench cruised to a combined 47 points. Top-heavy production from LeBron James (31 points) wasn't nearly enough to turn the tide against the surging Spurs, who had the home crowd roaring for them all night, as Miami fell short of their third straight championship. Chalmers' lousy play in the Finals may put a serious dent in his appeal as an unrestricted FA this summer.
