Hot Points: Updates on the Miami Heat

November 23, 2010

Standing at 8-6, the Miami Heat continue to switch things up in search for stability on the court. Here are the latest developments surrounding the team:
  • Erick Dampier is a physical exam away from becoming the newest Heat member; the team waived Jerry Stackhouse earlier today to make room on the roster.
  • Udonis Haslem went under the knife Tuesday morning to repair the torn ligaments in his left foot; a timetable for his return has not been set, but predictions point towards the All-Star Break. 
  • While Mike Miller wishes to return in time for the Heat's December 25 match-up versus the Los Angeles Lakers, more realistic reports have him jumping back to action in January.
  • Head Coach Erick Spoelstra on Dexter Pittman getting playing time: ``He could. We talked about him [Monday] in the coaches' meeting. He's getting better. He's in very good shape. He looks like a totally different player. Keep playing that way, eventually, he'll get his opportunity.'' (Source: The Miami Herald)
  • Spoelstra on Chalmers spot on the team: "He's a 10th man right now and it depends on the game. I told him he's not guaranteed of coming in every game. The other nine guys pretty much are, and depending on the opponent and the flow of the game, at times we'll be able to work him in." (Source: The Sun-Sentinel)
