Analysis: The Philadelphia native hasn't been all that efficient, but he's still averaging 19.2 points and 4.4 assists over his last five games. Waiters should continue to be a high-volume shooter on what's looking like a really bad Heat team.
Nov. 19 8:41 AM PT9:41 AM MT10:41 AM CT11:41 AM ET16:41 GMT0:41 9:41 AM MST11:41 AM EST20:41 UAE17:4111:41 ET10:41 AM CTNaN:� - Waiters fought off a minor groin injury to play Saturday at Washington, scoring 16 points and handing out a season-high eight assists.

Nov. 17 6:55 PM PT7:55 PM MT8:55 PM CT9:55 PM ET2:55 GMT10:55 7:55 PM MST9:55 PM EST6:55 UAE (+1)03:5521:55 ET8:55 PM CTNaN:� - Waiters scored 23 points and the Heat beat the Bucks 96-73 on Thursday night to end a six-game losing streak.

Nov. 15 8:10 AM PT9:10 AM MT10:10 AM CT11:10 AM ET16:10 GMT0:10 9:10 AM MST11:10 AM EST20:10 UAE17:1011:10 ET10:10 AM CTNaN:� - Waiters erupted for a season-high 27 points in the Heat's 94-90 loss at San Antonio on Monday.
Analysis: Waiters is fully capable of nights like this. Problem is, he's also prone to performances like the four points he delivered in 19 minutes in Miami's previous game. The streaky guard should still be viewed as a hit-or-miss player for fantasy purposes.
July 25 11:05 AM PT12:05 PM MT1:05 PM CT2:05 PM ET18:05 GMT2:05 11:05 AM MST1:05 PM EST22:05 UAE20:0514:05 ET1:05 PM CT17:05 - Waiters signed a $5.93 million, two-year contract with the Heat on Tuesday.
Analysis: Waiters averaged 9.8 points for the Oklahoma City Thunder last year, but had several big games in the playoffs. He played particularly well against Dallas and San Antonio in the playoffs before his role was reduced in the seven-game loss to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals. Waiters will compete for a starting job as Dwyane Wade's replacement.
