Miami Heat G/F Justise Winslow will miss at least the next two weeks due to a back injury.
Erik Spoelstra said Justise Winslow will be out for the next two weeks with his back injury and will be re-evaluated at that point.— Anthony Chiang (@Anthony_Chiang) January 17, 2020
Winslow will be re-evaluated after that time period, per coach Erik Spoelstra. Winslow has missed the past three games since returning to the lineup on Jan. 8. He only played 15 minutes and wasn’t very effective, meaning the injury was still bothering him. Winslow hasn’t been able to stay healthy all season and at this point, you’ve got to wonder if he’ll ever be able to consistently contribute in 2019-20.
Fantasy Basketball analysis: Miami Heat G/F Justise Winslow
Winslow’s absence really shortens up the Heat’s rotation even more. Usually a deep team, Miami is running a nine-man rotation as of now, though Tyler Herro should be back in the fold soon. With Winslow out for the next two weeks, Derrick Jones Jr. is an attractive add off the waiver wire in season-long. He posted seven points and 12 boards on Wednesday vs. the Spurs and is on pace for career highs across the board.
