Napier played in 51 games for the Heat in his rookie season before undergoing surgery for a sports hernia in early April that ended his season. When given the opportunity, Napier showed he could be a pretty solid floor general and finished his first year in the NBA with averages of 5.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists over 20 minutes per game.
McRoberts (knee), after signing a fresh new contract with the Heat, tore his right lateral meniscus just over two months into the regular season and had season-ending surgery. McRoberts had played 20-plus minutes in seven straight games before going down with the injury and was beginning to look like promising serving as a stretch power forward off the bench for Miami.
Chalmers was forced to come off the bench for a majority of the second half of the season after the Heat traded for Goran Dragic at the February trade deadline. Chalmers averaged 10.2 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.9 three-pointers, and 30 minutes per game in 80 games during the 2014-15 season.
