The Miami Heat have looked deadly thin and fatigued at times this year, with healthy bodies on the pine. Should they get more time in light of the situation?

The Miami Heat are one of the best teams in the NBA and at worst, the second-best team in the Eastern Conference. They have beaten most of the teams that could be called contenders in the Eastern Conference, while they still need to knock off the Boston Celtics to complete the set.

While they have managed to look somewhat decent in most showings thus far this season, there is an issue that seems to be making itself known quite frequently this year. The Miami Heat at times get fatigued, worn down, and beat up, and it may have something to do with the limited rotation deployed by Coach Spoelstra.

While James Johnson apparently came out of the doghouse in a recent game, Dion Waiters appears to still be stuck in said purgatory. Is it time to throw all grudges, beefs, and disciplinary action out of the window?

In light of the seeming and apparent thinness and fatigue of this team at times, should James Johnson and Dion Waiters be seeing more minutes at this juncture? There are possible roles for them on this team, although they may not be clearly defined at the moment or apparent to everyone who’s watching.

We will discuss it here, in the latest AUCH Roundtable. Let’s dive right in.
