2019 Fantasy Outlook
Winslow will be back for his fifth season with the Heat after a solid all-around showing in 2018-19. Last year, Winslow averaged 12.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.5 threes and 1.1 steals in 66 games -- all career-highs. He also started a career-high 52 games and logged 29.7 minutes per contest. Winslow is a unique player in that he's comfortable at the four, but can also play point guard because he's a quality passer, and that's a role he occupied for stretches last season. Winslow figures to be the starting power forward for Miami this season, and with Hassan Whiteside out the door and no significant additions to the Heat's frontcourt, Winslow could see big minutes. His usage may decrease with superstar Jimmy Butler now on the roster, but Winslow is versatile enough to sustain fantasy value regardless. Because of his increased production last season across most categories and his slight improvement in shooting percentages, he is on the radar in standard leagues as a fringe top-100 player.

Personal Bio

Justise Jon Winslow was born on March 26, 1996 in Houston to Robin Davis and Rickie Winslow. Winslow, whose nicknames are "JWins", "JDubb", "Jus-Blaze" and "Rubdi", has three older brothers and one older sister. His father played collegiately at the University of Houston and was a member of the Phi Slama Jama team that also featured Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler. Winslow's father was a first-round pick of the Chicago Bulls in 1987. One of Winslow's brothers, Josh, played college football at Dartmouth, while his sister, Bianca, played basketball at the University of Houston. Winslow has been involved in a number of charitable efforts, including founding the Robin's House Foundation along with his family. The foundation's mission is to "encourage and guide children and young adults to discover their highest potential through education, recreation and community outreach." Winslow also hosts basketball camps in Houston and helped to raise money after Hurricane Harvey hit the city in 2017. In high school, Winslow was a two-time Gatorade Texas Boys Basketball Player of the Year, and he was selected to the McDonald's All-American Game in 2014. A five-star recruit, Winslow opted to play collegiately at Duke University. Follow Winslow on Twitter and Instagram @IAmJustise.

College/International Summary

Winslow attended Duke for one season in 2014-15 and won a national championship. The Houston native played more of a complementary role in the non-conference slate but seemed to raise his game during ACC play. He had three straight double-doubles in wins over Virginia, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame and had seven double-doubles on the season. Winslow had one of his best all-around games in the last home game of the season with 13 points, seven assists, six rebounds and six steals against Wake Forest. The forward showed he could also hit three-pointers, convering 41.8 percent from downtown. Overall, Winslow averaged 12.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.5 steals. In the run to the national championship, Winslow generally took the toughest defensive assignment and averaged 14.3 points and 9.4 rebounds in the tournament. After the season, the forward declared for the 2015 NBA Draft and was selected by Memphis with the No. 10 overall pick.

Winslow (back) said April 24 that he is "pain-free and symptom-free" and plans to "get right back into the swing of things" when the season resumes, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Winslow was considered just about ready to make his Grizzlies debut before the NBA suspended its season March 12, so it makes sense that he's feeling 100 percent six weeks later. Before being acquired by the Grizzlies on Feb. 5, Winslow appeared in 11 games with the Heat, averaging 11.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 32.0 minutes per contest. Though he could step into a starting role at small forward for Memphis, Winslow is unlikely to see as much playing time as he did in Miami.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Winslow's fourth season would see him break or match personal-bests in points (12.6), rebounds (5.4), and assists (4.3). He'd also achieve milestones in FG percentage (43.3) and three-pointers made (1.5). Miami clearly saw value in Winslow, as they signed him to a contract extension in October, which should keep Winslow in Miami through the 2021-22 season. The 6-foot-7 jack-of-all-positions started 52 of 66 games in 2018-19, including a number of those at point guard. A hamstring issue would sideline him for the opening four contests, but it didn't seem to affect his Nov. 3 performance of 15 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and two blocks during a loss at Atlanta. More playing time was provided as the season progressed, and his output improved as a result. The 22-year-old twice achieved three straight 20-plus point efforts during December, one being a season-high 28 points posted during a loss to the Lakers. Winslow collected six double-doubles during season. A knee sprain would sideline him for two games in February and a hamstring injury in March left him out for nine more, but he seemed to return each time with the same effort and intensity as before. Winslow would end the season on a high note by racking up 16 points - including four treys - in his second-to-last appearance on Apr. 9. Winslow's Heat finished with a 39-43 record and missed the playoffs.

2017

Winslow played 68 games for the Heat in 2017-18, 25 of which were starts. The forward averaged 7.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 24.7 minutes of run. His playing time increased during the season from 24.5 in October to 28.4 in April. Winslow's best game was an away victory against the Hawks on April 4, which featured 18 points and five assists in 27 minutes. On Jan. 27, he had three blocks against the Hornets, setting his career high. He shot 38.0 percent on three points in 2017-18 -- also a personal best. The 21-year-old notched two double-doubles during the campaign. He missed 14 straight games between December and January with a knee strain. The Heat finished the regular season with a 44-38 record and lost to the Sixers in the first round of the playoffs. Winslow entered in a reserve role in all five games, averaging 9.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists over 25.0 minutes.

2016

Winslow played 18 games in his sophomore season for the Heat, starting in 15. He averaged 10.9 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists during the campaign. The forward started the first nine games before dealing with a left wrist issue. He then missed 16 straight games before coming back in mid-December. After playing another nine games, Winslow underwent shoulder surgery and was ruled out for the season. His best performance was a Dec. 22 home win over the Lakers, which featured 23 points and 13 rebounds in 42 minutes. That was his only double-double of the season. Two days before, he played a career-high 46 minutes against the Magic, with 13 points and five rebounds. Winslow averaged 1.4 steals per game in 2016-17, his personal best. The Heat finished the season with a 41-41 record and did not make the playoffs.

2015

Winslow was selected with the 10th overall pick by Heat in the 2015 NBA Draft. The forward played 78 games and started eight during his rookie season. He averaged 6.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.9 steals in 28.6 minutes. Winslow's debut came in the season opener, when he posted five points, seven rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes in a win over Charlotte. His best outing featured 15 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals in 39 minutes in a win over the visiting Pacers on Feb. 22. His best month was February, when he averaged 7.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 31.7 minutes. On March 14, the forward scored 20 points against the Nuggets to set his season high. The Heat advanced to the playoffs after a 48-34 record, beating the Hornets before falling to the Raptors in Round 2 -- both of which were seven-game series. The 19-year old missed just one of the 14 games, averaging 6.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 25.4 minutes. Winslow was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team after the season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
2015
Winslow, who played 18 games due to injury in 2016-17, appeared in 68 games (25 starts) last season -- his third year in the league. While he managed to make 38.0 percent of his threes on 1.9 attempts, his shooting remains somewhat of a concern, as he has yet to shoot better than 43 percent from the field and 69 percent from the charity stripe in a given season. Shooting woes aside, Winslow has been solid rebounder, passer and defender, giving him Fantasy value in deeper formats. Per 36 minutes over the past two seasons (86 games), the Duke product is averaging 7.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists and a combined 1.8 steals/blocks. He played 24.7 minutes per tilt last season -- a number that will be difficult to top given the presence of Josh Richardson, Kelly Olynyk, Dion Waiters and the overall deep Heat bench.
Winslow missed all but 18 games last season – his second year in the league – due to wrist issues and surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right (non-shooting) shoulder. In the games he did play, he averaged 10.9 points (on 35.6 percent from the field), 5.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.4 steals across 34.7 minutes per game. While he was extremely inefficient from the field, the Heat clearly believed in Winslow’s potential as a major contributor for them in other ways – mainly on defense. Winslow has also been recovering ahead of schedule and is expected to be healthy by training camp, giving him an opportunity to work on his game prior to the season. That said, the Heat’s late-season surge without him has propelled them into playoff territory, which they weren’t expected to be in at the beginning of the year when Winslow was healthy. Now, if Winslow is unable to produce even minimally efficient on the offensive side of the ball, coach Erik Spoelstra may be quicker with the hook than he was during the first part of the 2016-17 campaign, which could have negative implications on Winslow’s Fantasy value. Overall, Winslow’s Fantasy stock is volatile at the moment, making him a risky pick in most formats.
Winslow was selected 10th overall by the Heat in the 2015 NBA Draft and immediately slid into a rotation role for one of the Eastern Conference's better teams, averaging 28.6 minutes per game in 78 appearances. While the 20-year-old held his own on the defensive end, he didn't make much of a splash from a fantasy standpoint, despite his big minutes load. Winslow contributed only 6.4 points (on 42.2% shooting from the field), 5.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.9 steals per game, with his numbers in the offensive categories in particular not inspiring a ton of confidence. The swingman didn't shoot the ball much better in the summer league this past July, but given his youth, there's plenty of reason for the Heat to believe he'll improve in that regard over time. The organization certainly seems to be banking on him taking at least a small step forward offensively in Year 2, as the offseason departures of Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng along with the likelihood that blood clots will prevent Chris Bosh from ever playing for the team again will open up even more minutes and shot attempts for Winslow. His efficiency could plunge further a bit with the added volume, but Winslow should easily surpass his averages from his rookie season in most categories. He's a good target for the later rounds of most drafts, but expecting a full-on breakout and selecting him much earlier than that may result in disappointment.
Winslow fell to the Heat at No. 10 overall in the 2015 NBA Draft and will have the opportunity to become a legitimate contributor for the team in his first NBA season. The 19-year-old is an exceptional rebounder for someone his size, and he showed it at Duke, where he managed to grab 6.5 rebounds per game at 6-6 for the Blue Devils on top of averaging 12.6 points per game on 49 percent shooting. Winslow also shot an impressive 42 percent from behind the arc in his lone season with the program. Now, as he enters his rookie season, Winslow will likely play behind veteran small forward Luol Deng, but will bring a lot to the table off the bench. The biggest thing Winslow was able to showcase at Duke was his impressive athleticism, both as a high-flyer and a lockdown defender. That athleticism and his length already make Winslow a legitimate on-ball defender in the NBA, so the sky is the limit should Winslow refine his offensive game, although he is already a crafty dribbler, very strong finisher, and solid outside shooter. While Winslow may not immediately be a huge statistical contributor when he enters the league, he could potentially provide solid contributions in the steals and rebounds categories for his position.
