Facing a 5 p.m. Monday deadline to reduce their roster to a maximum of 15 players, the Miami Heat on Thursday released rookie guards Tyler Johnson and Larry Drew and Hialeah-born forward Shawn Jones. The moves leave the Heat with 16 players on their preseason roster. Of the players released Thursday, Johnson was the most intriguing. Johnson, who went undrafted out of Fresno State in June, impressed the Heat with his athletic play during summer league to the degree that they offered him a $75,000 guarantee to attend training camp.

I saw you said they gave Michael Beasley's No. 8 to Shawne Williams. So I guess they're not going to retire Bease's number? (OK, so it means he's not coming back?) -- Henrique. A: An adjustment still could be made if Beasley is brought back, but that is an increasing longshot. But it's also not as if the Heat are mass producing Shawne Williams jerseys at this stage, either. While Beasley appears to be in the rearview mirror, the Heat still seems to be lacking on the wing, where the current options are Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Danny Granger, Reggie Williams, James Ennis and Tyler Johnson. There simply is not a lot of one-on-one creativity there, no one, really, other that Wade who can score off the dribble. South Florida Sun-Sentinel
