The Miami Heat need a certain ‘spark’ during ruts at times and Max Strus can help provide that.

With that, that’s why you have to find him minutes and even when the Miami Heat are, somewhat, fully healthy, even if only a few minutes and on certain nights. His ability to create offense for his team is something that might be needed in an, all too familiar, Miami Heat rut.

On the Miami Heat’s ruts… pain. Just… pain.

Now, as far as his superpower though, which is his shooting when it’s working, that’s also something of note. The Miami Heat are feast or famine from deep this season, but with a lineup containing say… Strus, Duncan Robinson, and Trevor Ariza, you have some really lethal shooting there.

It may never see the floor together, as the plus/minus crusaders line up to obliterate the chances, but the fact that those levels of shooters can be deployed is something to keep in mind. In totality, he might not see a glutton of minutes when the team is at full health but you have to find a way to get him a few looks per night.

Even if it’s only a few good looks from three, his ability to knock them down and now, command attention, is worth it. That’s why the answer is yes.

Even at full-strength, health wise, the Miami Heat and Coach Spo must find a way to get him on the floor. Again, even if only for very limited minutes.
