Miami Heat Roster Report 2009-09-18

Miami Heat Roster Report 2009-09-18PLAYER NEWS:

--C Jermaine O'Neal has spent over a month in Chicago working out with noted trainer Tim Grover, in an effort to regain the form that previously had him as one of the league's most respected post players. O'Neal remained in Chicago after teammates Dwyane Wade and Dorell Wright left their sessions with Grover, with O'Neal then also working out with Bulls players at the Bulls' practice facility.

--Despite playing many of his minutes in recent seasons at small forward, Quentin Richardson has been classified as a shooting guard by Riley. Riley, however, noted that since starting shooting guard Dwyane Wade logs such heavy minutes, Richardson likely would have to spend time at forward. Riley, however, did not make it sound as if Richardson is a candidate to start at small forward. That said, Riley said he considers Richardson one of the team's better post-up threats.

--C Joel Anthony is back working out at the Heat's practice facility after helping Canada's national team secure a spot in next summer's World Championships. With Anthony helping push Canada through the FIBA Americas tournament, Canada could have two Heat players on its roster next summer, with C Jamaal Magloire also expected to accept an invitation.

MEDICAL WATCH: No injuries to report.


Patrick Beverley, G, 6-1, Ukraine/Arkansas (second round) -- Beverley, taken with the 43rd pick, played professionally in Ukraine last season, leaving Arkansas after his junior year. He's aggressive and can play both guard positions.

Robert Dozier, F, 6-9, Memphis (second round) -- There's a chance he plays in Europe next season. Miami believes he can play small forward although he was a power forward in college.
