Haslem signed a one-year, minimum deal with the Heat, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

EDGE Analysis

Haslem has called Miami home for his entire NBA career, and he'll be a part of the franchise for at least one more year after signing a deal Thursday. It has been a few years since the veteran has played a crucial role on the court for the Heat, but he'll continue to serve as a key veteran presence and mentor for the team.

Haslem plans to return for the 2017-18 season, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Haslem has spent his entire 14-year career with the Heat and will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason after making just 17 on-court appearances during the 2016-17 campaign. The Heat seem to be his first choice for another one-year contract, but regardless of where the 36-year-old ends up, he'll be utilized more so as a mentor than anything else.

Haslem (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 106-98 win over the Cavaliers on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Haslem is essentially an extension of the coaching staff at this stage of his career, so it should come as no surprise that the longtime Heat big man wasn't included in the rotation in a competitive contest. He's appeared in just two of the Heat's last 23 games.

Haslem (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 116-107 loss to the Magic on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Haslem has made just two appearances in the Heat's last 15 games and won't see regular run in the team's rotation while the frontcourt remains relatively healthy.

Haslem (illness) is officially available to participate in Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

Haslem missed the team's previous game due to an illness, but will be available to play Tuesday. This news is unsurprising, as the veteran big man was able to go through the team's shootaround earlier in the day. He saw some time in the rotation prior to missing the team's last game, but that was mainly due to injuries. With the Heat's frontcourt in a healthier situation, Haslem does not figure to get too much run Tuesday.

Haslem (illness) took part in the Heat's morning shootaround, but his status remains undetermined for Tuesday's game against the Warriors, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Heat haven't taken Haslem off their injury report and are still listing him as questionable, but he's generally expected to dress for the contest after taking part in morning shootaround. Though the Heat will likely be without four players due to injury, those absences likely won't open up a rotation spot for Haslem if he's available.

Haslem is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against Golden State.

EDGE Analysis

Haslem missed practice Monday with an illness, so the Heat will wait to see how he feels at shootaround Tuesday before updating his status. The veteran has appeared in only 12 games this season and was a DNP-CD in the team's most recent game Sunday against the Clippers.

Haslem had seven points (2-3 FG, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and one block in 18 minutes during the Heat's 107-102 win against the Kings on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Haslem posted season highs in scoring, made free throws, assists, and blocks, and he has appeared in three straight games since Hassan Whiteside (eye) got hurt. Haslem had only appeared in eight contests this season prior to Jan. 1, and just once had he received a double-digit minutes load. During these last three contests though, the veteran forward has averaged 5.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.7 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 18.3 minutes per game. With Whiteside slated to miss Friday's matchup with the Lakers as well, Haslem seems likely to earn decent minutes for at least one more night.

Haslem (personal) will be available for Saturday's game against the Bulls.

EDGE Analysis

Haslem was excused from the team Friday in order to attend his son's state championship football game, but he is back with the Heat for Saturday's matchup and will be available off the bench. The Heat are dealing with numerous injuries, so Haslem has a chance to see a few minutes Saturday night.

Haslem has been excused from Friday's game against the Cavaliers for personal reasons.

EDGE Analysis

The Heat will only have eight players Friday without Haslem, but his absence should not have a major impact on Miami's rotation, as he has appeared in just seven games this season and has averaged only 5.9 minutes in those contest. It's not clear when Haslem will return to the team, but he could miss another game with the Heat playing back-to-back games Friday and Saturday this weekend.
