If the Miami Heat need extra minutes from someone, there is a guy that can give them something they don’t have a ton of.

With the most professional experience among this particular group, Bjelica played in just 11 games for Miami after being acquired near the March deadline. He also went 7-11 from outside in the Heat’s final two regular season games against Milwaukee and Detroit.

Nemanja might’ve just proven that he can provide quality floor spacing for a Heat team that ranks as one of the lowest outside shooting teams this year. Basically, they need the thing, badly, that he does well.

Vincent, Okapala, and Achiuwa have all been a plus throughout the regular season, given the multitude of injuries Miami suffered. While any of them could see the floor for small spurts, none have shown enough consistency to steal minutes from those who are further ahead in the rotation.

This is the NBA playoffs and the Heat must continue to develop their younger talent beyond this summer. With that being said, even just a couple minutes could do wonders for a player’s confidence.

It’s almost impossible to play everyone at this time of the year. For the time being, the Heat must cherish the fact that all of their key players are currently available and keep the hope for sustainable health moving forward.

As always, In Riley We Trust. And… Trust The Spocess.
