Anthony: There’s a real chance nobody takes the Heat’s 15th roster spot, with the 14 players under guaranteed contracts as the only locks to make the team. With Miami’s two two-way contract players — Duncan Robinson and Yante Maten — allowed to spend up to 45 days on NBA rosters, it can use them to fill any holes if Dion Waiters and James Johnson continue to miss time due to injuries. And that 45-day clock does not begin until the Oct. 22 start of G League training camps – three games into the Heat’s regular season. That means Miami will have its two-way contract players for the opening week of the season whether it fills the 15th roster spot or not. Plus, keeping a 15th player is just going to add to the Heat’s luxury-tax bill, which is currently at about $9.7 million. At approximately $6.3 million above the tax line, the Heat needs to shed that amount of payroll by the end of the season in order to get below the tax and avoid paying a penalty.
