In July of 2014, the Miami Heat signed free agent forward Josh McRoberts to a four-year $22 million deal, and it’s safe to say that it hasn’t worked out for the team at all yet.
Out of the 114 Heat games McRoberts has been on the Heat’s roster, he has only played in 37 of them. That is barley over 30%.
McRoberts has only played 37 games largely due to a torn meniscus that limited him to 17 games last season, and now he has a knee sprain that has caused him to miss the Heat’s last 12 games, and it will now grow to 13 with him being ruled out for the Heat’s divisional match-up versus the Wizards tomorrow.

McRoberts is averaging a lackluster 3.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 20 games for the Heat this year. It’s unlikely in my eyes that McRoberts will play Monday when the Heat host the Pacers in addition to tomorrow.
