  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Chips in 16 points off bench

    Highsmith posted 16 points (5-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals across 36 minutes during Wednesday's 109-104 win over the 76ers.

    Highsmith scored in double digits for the first time since the Celtics game Jan. 25. His 36 minutes of play came with Jimmy Butler (personal), Terry Rozier (knee) and Josh Richardson (shoulder) sidelined for Wednesday's contest. Highsmith will likely see his role decrease after the All-Star break when Butler returns to action.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Set to play against Boston

    Highsmith (personal) isn't on the injury report for Sunday's game versus the Celtics.

    Highsmith will return to action Sunday after missing Miami's previous contest due to his involvement in a car accident. Highsmith logged just three minutes in his last outing, so it's unclear what his role will be versus Boston.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Not injured during car accident

    Highsmith (personal), who has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, didn't sustain any injuries in the car accident he was involved in Tuesday night, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Although Highsmith wasn't injured and hasn't been charged in connection with the car accident, he hit a person helping another driver stuck in the middle of the road. The man who was hit is in critical condition and suffered a partial amputation of his leg, so it's unclear whether Highsmith will miss additional time due to emotional distress or legal ramifications pertaining to the incident. The Heat's next game in Saturday in Boston.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Involved in car accident

    Highsmith (personal), who has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, was involved in a car accident on his way home from Tuesday's matchup against the Magic, Wes Goldberg of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    While Highsmith had already been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup, it's unclear whether he's dealing with injuries that will force him to miss additional time. However, the Heat have a few days off before Sunday's game against Boston.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Joins second unit Tuesday

    Highsmith will come off the bench Tuesday against Orlando, with Caleb Martin moving into the starting lineup.

    Highsmith had eight points (3-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 105-96 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Highsmith started for the first time since Jan. 12 against the Magic. He played 24 points in Wednesday's loss, which is the second straight game he's played 20-plus minutes after playing 12 minutes or less in the three previous contests. He could revert to the bench for Thursday's game against the Celtics if the Heat opt to start newcomer Terry Rozier.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Starting Wednesday

    Highsmith will join the first unit for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Highsmith was downgraded to questionable midday with a foot injury, but he'll play and start Wednesday's tilt. In 17 starts this season, Highsmith is averaging 6.9 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Officially cleared

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Downgraded to questionable

    Highsmith (foot) is now listed as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Grizzlies.

    After initially being listed as probable, Highsmith has been downgraded to questionable Friday due to a left foot sprain. If Highsmith is ultimately ruled out, Caleb Martin and Nikola Jovic are candidates to receive increased playing time.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Probable for Wednesday

    Highsmith is listed as probable Wednesday versus Memphis due to a foot injury, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Highsmith has been banged up throughout the 2023-24 campaign, including brief absences due to knee and back injuries, as well as concussion protocol. That being said, the 27-year-old is firmly on track to play Wednesday, which marks the first half of a back-to-back set for the Heat.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Returns to reserve role

    Highsmith isn't starting Sunday's game against the Hornets.

    Highsmith will return to a reserve role following back-to-back starts. However, he should still see increased playing time off the bench with Kevin Love (knee) unavailable. As a reserve (seven games), Highsmith has averaged 5.4 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.9 steals in 18.6 minutes per game.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Scores season-high 19 in start

    Highsmith finished with 19 points (7-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 128-120 loss to the Thunder.

    Highsmith returned to a starting role and looked impressive, putting up solid contributions on both ends of the court and reaching a season-best mark in scoring. Highsmith has scored in double digits six times this season, and while his fantasy upside is inconsistent, he will experience an uptick if he's able to remain in a starting role going forward.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Gets starting nod

    Highsmith is in the starting five for Wednesday's game versus the Thunder.

    Highsmith will replace Kyle Lowry (hand) in the starting lineup Wednesday. Highsmith is averaging 6.1 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 22.1 minutes across his previous 15 starting appearances.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Meager role in return

    Highsmith (concussion) tallied three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and three rebounds across 16 minutes in Monday's 120-113 win over the Rockets.

    Highsmith made his return after he was sidelined for the Heat's previous three contests while he recovered from a concussion. Though Miami was without both of its usual starters at forward in Jimmy Butler (foot) and Caleb Martin (ankle), Highsmith wasn't able to recapture meaningful minutes. Highsmith could be at risk of moving outside of the rotation once both Butler and Martin are healthy again.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Good to go Monday

    Highsmith (concussion) isn't listed on Miami's injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Rockets.

    Highsmith will suit up Monday after missing the previous three games while in concussion protocol. With Jimmy Butler (toe) out and Caleb Martin (knee) doubtful, there will be plenty of frontcourt minutes available, though it's unclear if Highsmith will have any restrictions or not.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Lands in concussion protocol

    Highsmith was placed in concussion protocol Monday and will miss the remainder of Miami's current road trip, which ends Friday in Phoenix, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Highsmith will miss at least the next three games, making a Jan. 8 home matchup versus the Rockets his next chance to suit up. Miami's rotation has been in flux all season, so Highsmith's absence should open up a few extra minutes for guys like Kevin Love, Nikola Jovic and Orlando Robinson.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Listed as doubtful for Monday

    Highsmith is doubtful for Monday's game against the Clippers due to a jaw contusion.

    Miami has yet another lengthy injury report, and it appears that Caleb Martin (ankle) is also expected to sit out Monday's game. The Heat could turn to Kevin Love or Nikola Jovic to pick up the small handful of minutes that Highsmith usually sees.

  • Heat's Haywood Highsmith: Back to bench

    Highsmith isn't starting Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    Highsmith drew a spot start at power forward Thursday against the Warriors, putting up three points and recording one steal over 18 minutes. He'll head back to his usual bench role as the Heat elect to give Nikola Jovic a chance with the first unit.
