Top Jaime Jaquez Jr. News

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Rejoins second unit

    Jaquez will come off the bench for Tuesday's game versus Portland, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    No surprises here, as Jimmy Butler is returning from his one-game suspension. Jaquez made the most of his fill-in start Monday versus the Kings, producing 26 points (12-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and three steals across 38 minutes.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Pours in 26 points in starting role

    Jaquez supplied 26 points (12-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and three steals across 38 minutes during Monday's 121-110 victory over the Kings.

    Jaquez helped the Heat win a fourth straight game on a night when most of the starters were out. Jaquez aptly filled in for Jimmy Butler (suspension) with his second-best scoring total of the season. Although Jaquez was routinely posting strong numbers before a seven-game absence in January, his demotion to the second unit has hurt his bottom line, Unless Miami's injury concerns become a more consistent problem, nights like these will likely be a rarity for the rookie.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Returns to starting lineup

    Jaquez is starting Monday's game against Sacramento.

    Jaquez is averaging 15.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists on 52.8 percent shooting across his last five games as a starter. He is joined by Delon Wright, Duncan Robinson, Caleb Martin and Bam Adebayo in a makeshift starting lineup Monday while Jimmy Butler and Nikola Jovic are suspended and Tyler Herro (knee) and Terry Rozier (knee) are sidelined due to injuries.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Returns to bench

    Jaquez isn't in the starting five for Tuesday's game versus the Bucks.

    Nikola Jovic will replace Jaquez in the starting lineup Tuesday. With Jimmy Butler (personal), Terry Rozier (knee) and Josh Richardson (shoulder) out, the rookie forward will likely be relied upon to lead Miami's second unit.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Cracks starting five

    Jaquez will start at forward for the Heat in Sunday's game against the Celtics.

    He'll re-enter the starting five for the first time since making his return to action in late January following a six-game absence due to a strained left groin. While coming off the bench in Miami's last seven games, Jaquez has seen his playing time and fantasy value take a big hit, with the rookie averaging 7.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.4 three-pointers in 25.3 minutes per game over that stretch. He'll likely see a temporary spike as he moves back to the top unit in place of Jimmy Butler (personal), who is out Sunday while he takes a leave of absence from the Heat following the death of a family member. Butler is uncertain to be available for either of the Heat's final two games before the All-Star break (Tuesday in Milwaukee, Wednesday in Philadelphia), so Jaquez could have some appeal as a streamer beyond Sunday's contest.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Low minutes continue

    Jaquez totaled 12 points (4-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists and three steals across 23 minutes during Tuesday's 121-95 win over the Magic.

    Miami is mostly healthy these days, and with Terry Rozier in town, Jaquez has seen his minutes trend in the wrong direction. Over his past seven games, the rookie played 23.3 minutes per contest to go with averages of 8.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 turnovers.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Brings defensive stats in return

    Jaquez (groin) tallied six points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists, two steals, two blocks and one rebound across 24 minutes in Saturday's 125-109 loss to the Knicks.

    After starting 12 of his prior 13 appearances before missing six straight games with a left groin strain, Jaquez came off the bench in his return to action Saturday. Though he made a mark on the defensive end with the pair of steals and blocks, Jaquez's usage sat at just 9.4 percent on the day, well below his season-long rate of 18.2 percent. Before missing time with the groin strain, Jaquez had benefited from an expanded role on the offensive end while both Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro missed time, but Butler and Herro are now back to full health. Additionally, the Heat recently acquired another high-usage player in Terry Rozier, and with Bam Adebayo also still on hand, Jaquez looks as though he'll fall further down in the offensive hierarchy than he had before suffering the injury. With that in mind, Jaquez may be hard-pressed to maintain his season-long average of 13.8 points per game, which had already been propped up by 51.2 percent shooting from the field.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Coming off bench Saturday

    Jaquez (groin) will play but will come off the bench in Saturday's game versus the Knicks, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jaquez will make his return following a six-game absence due to a groin injury. The rookie forward is averaging 14.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 33.4 minutes across his last five appearances coming off the bench.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Slated to return Saturday

    Jaquez (groin) is available for Saturday's game against the Knicks.

    Jaquez missed six straight games due to a left groin strain but will return to action Saturday. He was a regular starter before his absence, averaging 16.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 steals while starting 11 of his past 12 appearances. However, it's unclear if he'll reclaim a starting spot upon his return, as the Heat are back to full strength and added Terry Rozier to the mix since Jaquez last played.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Won't play against Boston

    Jaquez (groin) is out for Thursday's game versus the Celtics.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Doubtful for Wednesday

    Jaquez (groin) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Jaquez will likely miss a fifth straight game due to a left groin strain. Coach Erik Spoelstra said Sunday that Jaquez is without a timetable to return, so until he logs a full practice, Jaquez can likely be considered doubtful for future contests as well. Caleb Martin, Nikola Jovic and Haywood Highsmith (foot) are candidates for increased roles until Jaquez returns.

  • Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Out Sunday, no timeline for return

    Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said Jaquez (groin) won't play Sunday versus the Magic and is without a timetable to return, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Despite the seemingly pessimistic outlook on Jaquez' short-term availability, Spoelstra noted that team trainers "have been encouraged" by the rookie's ongoing recovery from a left groin strain. Nonetheless, Jaquez is at risk of missing multiple contests beyond Monday, leaving Caleb Martin, Nikola Jovic and Haywood Highsmith to continue operating in enlarged roles at forward.
