Top Cole Swider News

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Inactive Sunday

    Swider (not injury related) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Pacers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Swider is with the NBA club but won't suit up Sunday because the team already has 15 players available. With the G League season over for the Heat's affiliate -- the Sioux Falls Skyforce -- Swider should remain with Miami moving forward, but he's unlikely to see consistent playing time.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Gets garbage-time run

    Swider recorded zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in two minutes during Tuesday's 113-92 loss to Golden State.

    Swider appeared in a third straight game for Miami, albeit for just two minutes at the tail end of a blowout loss. Though the two-way player has posted excellent numbers in the G League this season, Swider doesn't look as though he'll get an extended look in Miami's rotation anytime soon.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Rejoins Miami, available Wednesday

    Swider has rejoined the Heat on their road trip and will be available for Wednesday's game in Cleveland, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    With Duncan Robinson (back) joining Tyler Herro (foot), Josh Richardson (shoulder) and Kevin Love (heel) on the sidelines, Swider will serve as emergency depth after joining the Heat for their final matchup of a four-game road trip. The two-way player hasn't appeared in an NBA game since Feb. 26.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Returns from G League

    The Heat recalled Swider from the G League's Sioux Falls Skyforce prior to Tuesday's game against Milwaukee, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    The two-way player will provide additional depth for the parent club for its final two games before the All-Star break. Even while the Heat are expected to be without multiple key players Tuesday, Swider may not be a part of head coach Erik Spoelstra's rotation. He's averaging 2.6 points in 4.9 minutes per game over nine NBA appearances this season.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Joining parent club

    Swider will be available for the Heat for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Swider has been playing for the G League's Sioux Falls Skyforce recently but will provide additional depth for the parent club ahead of the All-Star break. Even with the Heat dealing with multiple absences, it seems unlikely that Swider will see much playing time, as he's averaged 2.6 points in 4.9 minutes per game over nine NBA appearances this year.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Double-doubles in win

    Swider recorded 25 points (10-19 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes during Friday's 109-108 win over the Rip City Remix.

    Swider joined Malik Williams in posting double-doubles during Friday's narrow win over the Remix. Swider is scorching the nets from deep this season, converting 49.3 percent of his 8.9 three-point attempts per contest.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Will be available Monday

    Swider is available for Monday's game against the Clippers after being elevated from the G League's Sioux Falls Skyforce.

    The Heat have already ruled Jimmy Butler (foot) and Haywood Highsmith (concussion) out, while Kyle Lowry (head), Josh Richardson (back) and Caleb Martin (ankle) all have injury designations, so Swider and Orlando Robinson have been elevated for the New Year's Day matchup. Swider has made four NBA appearances this season, averaging 4.5 points in 7.5 minutes per game.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Recalled to NBA

    Swider was recalled from the G League to the NBA on Thursday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Swider has played only two minutes with the Heat this season. However, the Heat may want him available Friday, as Duncan Robinson (thumb) is questionable.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Returns to NBA

    The Heat recalled Swider from the G League's Sioux Falls Skyforce on Friday, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Swider has played just two minutes for Miami this season but will be available for Saturday's matchup with Atlanta. Swider will likely rejoin the Skyforce at some point this season.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Converted to two-way deal

    The Heat converted Swider's Exhibit 10 contract to a two-way deal Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    With Miami upgrading guard Dru Smith to a standard NBA contract, Swider will join R.J. Hampton and Jamal Cain as the Heat's three two-way players entering the regular season. As a rookie in 2022-23, Swider made seven appearances for the Lakers last season but otherwise spent the bulk of the campaign in the G League. Swider is likely ticketed to spend significant time in the G League once again in 2023-24, this time with the Sioux Falls Skyforce.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Leads team in three-pointers

    Swider scored 17 points (5-9 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and two rebounds over 14 minutes in Tuesday's 113-109 preseason win over the Hornets.

    Swider signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Heat on Aug. 6 after spending last season on the Lakers as a two-way player. With the departures of Max Strus and Gabe Vincent in free agency, Swider could establish a key bench role for himself if he's able to maintain his shooting touch during the preseason. He'll have his next opportunity Friday on the road against the Spurs.

  • Heat's Cole Swider: Joins Miami on Exhibit 10 deal

    Swider agreed to an Exhibit 10 deal with the Heat on Sunday, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    A 6-foot-9 forward, Swider played collegiately at Villanova and Syracuse before joining the Lakers on a two-way deal last summer. He made only seven NBA appearances as a rookie but shot 43.6 percent from deep in the G League. If he falls short in his bid to make Miami's opening night roster, the Heat will have the option of keeping him in the organization with their G League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce.

    Swider agreed to a deal with the Heat on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

  • Cole Swider: Let go by Lakers

    The Lakers waived Swider on Wednesday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    As an undrafted rookie out of Syracuse a season ago, Swider split time between the NBA and G League while serving as a two-way player for the Lakers. Only seven of his appearances came at the NBA level, with Swider averaging 1.3 points and 1.0 rebounds in 5.9 minutes per contest. In letting go of Swider, the Lakers are expected to sign undrafted rookie Alex Fudge to fill their third and final two-way spot.

    Swider tallied eight points (3-7 FG, 1-5 3PT, 1-2 FT), three assists and one rebound over 27 minutes of Sunday's 121-114 loss to Salt Lake City.

    Swider struggled to find his typical impact Sunday, scoring in single digits for the fifth time in 25 regular-season appearances. He also buried just one of his five three-point attempts, which was uncharacteristic for the 43.5 percent three-point shooter.
