2023 Fantasy Outlook
When healthy, Highsmith played meaningful minutes for the Heat, albeit sporadically. Although he doesn't project as a player with a ton of fantasy upside, he could very well be a 20-minute-per-night player this season. He played 18.0 minutes per night during the 2022-23 season, compiling averages of 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds. With a view to upscaling his production slightly, Highsmith could be worth considering toward the backend of deeper drafts. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Haywood Lee Highsmith Jr. was born in December of 1996 in Baltimore. He is the son of Brenda and Haywood Highsmith Sr. and has one brother. For prep school, Highsmith attended Archbishop Curley High School in Baltimore, graduating in 2014. Then, from 2014 to 2018, the forward attended Wheeling University in West Virginia. As a sophomore, Highsmith averaged 14.5 points and 9.4 rebounds per game and was named to the first team All-Mountain East Conference (MEC) squad. As a senior, Highsmith posted 22 points and 12.6 boards per contest and was named MEC Player of the Year and a first team Division II All-American. At Wheeling, Highsmith majored in business management. After going undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft, the forward joined the Delaware Blue Coats of the NBA G League. In January of 2019, he signed a two-way contract with the 76ers. Highsmith played again for the Blue Coats in 2019-20 and spent the 2020-21 season with the Crailsheim Merlins of the Basketball Bundesliga in Germany. Highsmith's favorite food is chicken cheesesteaks.

Does it all in loss
FMiami Heat
April 18, 2024
Highsmith posted nine points (4-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 105-104 Play-In Game loss to the 76ers.
ANALYSIS
Highsmith has seen an increase in both playing time and production in April, when he averaged 7.6 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.1 steals in 26.7 minutes. This is a significant improvement from March, where the 27-year-old averaged 5.9 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.3 steals in 16.7 minutes. With Jimmy Butler (knee) out for Friday's matchup against the Bulls, Highsmith is expected to garner an uptick in playing time behind Jaime Jaquez.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Highsmith will likely find himself at the end of the Heat's rotation this season. He played 19 games last year, averaging 2.3 points and 1.4 rebounds in 8.6 minutes. His 34.8 field goal percentage, 32.1 three-point percentage and 40.1 free throw percentage were alarmingly low. However, he was pretty impressive in his time in the G League while also performing fairly well in the Summer League. With his athletic profile and defensive prowess, the Heat are optimistic that he can develop into a solid contributor. At the moment, it is unlikely that Highsmith will have much of an impact on the team unless injuries force him into an elevated role.
