UPDATE: March 11, 6:11 p.m. — Rozier has been ruled out vs. the Heat.
Per Hornets: G Terry Rozier, listed as questionable, will be out this evening at MIA (has a cold).— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) March 11, 2020
UPDATE: March 11, 4:39 p.m. — As expected, Rozier is now questionable to play.
Charlotte Hornets PG Terry Rozier told reporters Wednesday afternoon that he’s feeling under the weather and may be held out vs. the Miami Heat. Rozier stated he doesn’t have a fever, so it doesn’t look to be anything overly serious.
Just spoke to @Hornets G Terry Rozier. Told me he’s under the weather and not sure if he’ll go tonight against the @Heat. He did make it a point to mention he doesn’t have a fever.— Kyle Bailey (@KyleBaileyClub) March 11, 2020
Rozier is a good dude, having a fantastic debut season. He’ll join me at 2:30 #AllFly
The Hornets just released a statement that Rozier is listed as probable with an illness. The fact he told reporters he may be out leads me to believe that Rozier is closer to questionable than probable at this point. We’ve seen the Hornets pull stuff with Devonte’ Graham being a late scratch before, so I’d be careful monitoring this situation.
If Rozier is held out, Graham ($7,000) becomes a more appealing play. We also need to wait and see on some injuries for the Heat. If Jimmy Butler and Kendrick Nunn are out, then Graham gets an even bigger boost. I like both Cody Martin ($4,400) and Caleb Martin ($4,000) as well if Rozier sits.
