Meyers Leonard does not play due to Coach's DecisionAugust 01, 2020 | 02:08 PM
Meyers Leonard did not play in Saturday's game against the Denver Nuggets based on a decision from head coach Erik Spoelstra. Spoelstra told reporters that Leonard will be in the mix moving forward, but was not included in Saturday's game.
Writer's Analysis: Leonard has averaged 20 minutes a game for the Heat this season, starting in more than half of his appearances. Instead, Jae Crowder started for the Heat on Saturday scoring nine points on 3-of-4 shooting. Leonard should be involved in Miami's rotation in future games, but should be held out of all fantasy lineups until he can prove that he is in a more consistent role for the Heat.
