Insight: Battier is trying to go out on top by winning his third championship. He hasn't been much of a factor this postseason, contributing just 3.1 ppg in 12 contests.

Description: Miami forward Shane Battier (flu) started Game 1 of the Heat's second-round playoff series against the Nets on Tuesday.

Insight: Battier acknowledged that Friday would be his last game in Detroit, which of course is where he grew up. The 35-year-old never contributed much to fantasy teams (8.7 career ppg) but was always a great competitor with an excellent basketball IQ. Battier has played for three teams in his 13-year career (Memphis, Houston and Miami).

Description: Heat small forward Shane Battier is questionable for Friday's game against Brooklyn.

Description: Heat small forward Shane Battier will miss another game Tuesday against the Pelicans. SOURCE: South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Insight: It's the third game in a row he's missed with a quad injury. The hustle and leadership Battier provides has been vital to Miami's success over the last few seasons. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, his value rarely shows up on the stat sheet (4.4 ppg in 31 contests this season).
 
1/7/2014 11:00:00 AM
Description: Miami forward Shane Battier is dealing with a sore quad and is doubtful for Tuesday's game against New Orleans.

Insight: He's battling a cold. Battier (4.8 ppg, 34.1 percent shooting on three-pointers) has given the Heat good production off the bench but he's not a fantasy consideration.
 
10/29/2013 10:58:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Shane Battier was lights out Tuesday in a season-opening victory over Chicago.
Insight: The 35-year-old shot an incredible 5-of-6 from the field including 4-of-4 from downtown. He won't play big minutes this year (he only played 22 on Tuesday) but if you're searching for a guy who can knock down threes, look no further.

Description: Heat forward Shane Battier played Thursday night against the Bucks despite suffering a chin injury that required stitches in Game 2.
Insight: Battier has really struggled with his shot this series (3-for-13 over the first two games). With that said, he could get hot at any time.
 
4/15/2013 6:13:00 PM
Description: Forward Shane Battier will miss his third game in a row Monday when the Heat take on the Cavaliers. He's been battling a knee injury.
Insight: Most of Battier's shots this season have come from beyond the three-point line (4.4 of his 5.1 field goal attempts per game). Luckily for fantasy owners, he's one of the more accurate long range shooters in the league (43 percent success rate this season).

Description: Miami small forward Shane Battier (illness) will play Tuesday versus Atlanta, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com.

3/12/2013 12:32:00 PM
Description: Miami small forward Shane Battier is questionable for Tuesday's game against Atlanta after missing the morning shootaround due to illness.
Insight: Battier is making 1.9 threes, but his 6.5 ppg and 2.3 rpg aren't enough to warrant much attention from fantasy owners.
 
2/26/2013 6:13:00 PM
Description: Miami small forward Shane Battier (hamstring) will miss Tuesday's game against the Kings.
Insight: Battier is making 1.9 threes with 0.8 blocks per game but doesn't offer anything else to fantasy owners (6.4 ppg, 2.2 rpg). Neither does Rashard Lewis, Mike Miller, Udonis Haslem or anyone else on Miami not named LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh or Ray Allen.
 
2/20/2013 10:28:00 PM
Description: Miami small forward Shane Battier lit up the Hawks for 17 points on 5-for-8 three-point shooting Wednesday night in Atlanta.
Insight: That's Battier's highest scoring output since November 15th against Denver. He's only reached double-digit points four times this month so we wouldn't count on a repeat performance Thursday night versus the Bulls.
 
1/16/2013 11:45:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Shane Battier is questionable for Wednesday's game agianst Golden State due to a strained right hamstring.

Description: Heat forward Shane Battier (hamstring) is unlikely to play Monday against the Jazz after not participating in shootaround.
