Justise Winslow Reveals What’s Been Affecting His Shooting
- Updated: November 14, 2016
The reason for the poor shooting may have just been revealed, per Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald:
Justise Winslow told me he's been playing through a bruised left wrist for a couple weeks now. He's been icing it, playing through the pain

Although it’s unclear how Winslow sustained the injury, the shooting results have been absolutely terrible. Despite averaging 12.1 points (almost double what he averaged last season), the new starter is taking more than twice as many shot attempts (14.4).
The 20-year-old has been tasked with more responsibilities this season due to the departures and absences of stars Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson and Luol Deng. The former No. 10 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft is averaging a team-high 36.0 minutes per game, with center Hassan Whiteside next at 32.3 minutes.
There’s no doubt the Heat have high expectations and trust in the sophomore. However, it looks like the increased responsibilities may have been handed down too fast, too soon.
