The Strus was loose: Max scores 20 with 5 triplesMarch 18, 2023 | 08:16 PM
Max Strus shot 5-of-13 from three in Saturday's 113-99 loss to the Bulls, scoring 20 points (7-of-16 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs) with three rebounds and four assists in 31 minutes.
Analysis: Strus has largely underwhelmed this season, but he came through with his best offensive effort since the All-Star break on Saturday. The 20 points are the most he's scored in a game since February 23, when Strus scored 23 in a loss to the Nuggets. Rostered in 17% of Yahoo leagues, he's ranked outside the top 150 in 9-cat, per-game value for the season. With Kyle Lowry (knee) still working through his issues and Gabe Vincent struggling with inconsistency, the Heat will need more performances along these lines from Strus. He'll certainly have the opportunity to come through, but he's a player that fantasy managers should leave alone if they don't already have him rostered.
