Personal Bio

Udonis Johneal Haslem was born June 9, 1980 in Miami. He has three sons: Kedonis, Josiah and Elijah. He also has two brothers and three sisters. His late brother, Samuel Wooten, passed away due to cancer at the age of 36 in 1999, and Haslem notes him as the person that he most admired, and the person who took him to basketball courts to have him play against older players. Haslem was inducted into the Miami Senior High School Hall of Fame in April 2009, into the University of Florida Hall of Fame in March 2012 and into the Miami Sports Hall of Champions in September 2016. In 2005, he started the Udonis Haslem Children's Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to promote youth development and self-confidence.

2011

Haslem appeared in 64 games (10 starts) for the Heat during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 campaign. He averaged 6.0 points on 42.3 percent shooting from the field and 81.4 percent from the charity stripe. The 31-year-old also posted 7.3 rebounds, 0.5 steals and 0.4 blocks in 24.8 minutes per game. He managed four double-doubles as well. Haslem's best performance of the season was Feb. 7 during a 16-point win over the Cavaliers.

Haslem became an NBA Champion for the second time in his career -- he also won a ring with Miami in 2006.

2010

Haslem appeared in 13 games for the Heat during the 2010-11 season. He suffered a serious foot injury during a game against the Grizzlies on Nov. 20 and didn't see the court after that. Prior to that game, he averaged 8.3 points on 51.2 percent shooting and 8.8 rebounds in 27.4 minutes. That also included four double-doubles. Haslem's best performance of the season was Nov. 11 during a five-point loss to Boston. In 33 minutes, he posted 21 points (9-10 FG, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block. Miami finished the season 58-24, making the playoffs and losing just three games en route to the NBA Finals, where they lost to Dallas.

2009

Haslem appeared in 78 games during the 2009-10 season, coming off the bench for all of them. He saw 27.9 minutes per game, averaging 9.9 points and 8.1 rebounds on 49.4 percent shooting from the field and 76.2 percent from the charity stripe. Arguably his best performance of the season occurred Nov. 14 during a one-point win over the Nets. He saw 39 minutes and posted 28 points (12-20 FG, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds and two assists. It was one of his 21 double-doubles. Miami finished the campaign 47-35 and made the playoffs but lost to the Celtics in the Eastern Conference first round. Haslem appeared in all five games of the series, averaging 6.0 points on 7.4 shots and 7.4 rebounds in 28.4 minutes.

2008

Haslem appeared in 75 games (all starts) during the 2008-09 season with the Heat. He saw 34.1 minutes per game, averaging 10.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists. Haslem shot 51.8 percent from the field -- a four-year high -- and 75.3 percent from the charity stripe. In the process, the Miami native accumulated 20 double-doubles. Arguably his best performance of the season came Dec. 1 during a one-point victory over the Warriors. In that game, Haslem recorded 21 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks. That wasn't his biggest game on the boards, though, as Haslem recorded 14 rebounds three times and 15 in a Jan. 18 double-double against the Thunder. Haslem started all seven games of Miami's first-round playoff loss to Atlanta, recording a pair of double-doubles along the way. In Game 3, he racked up 12 points and 13 rebounds, and in Game 7, he went for 14 points and 13 boards.

2007

Haslem posted some of the best numbers of his career in 2007-08, setting a new personal best with 12.0 points per game and falling just short of matching his career high with 9.0 rebounds per contest. He shot 46.7 percent from the field and a career-best 81.0 percent from the free-throw line. However, he missed a significant portion of the season due to a bone spur in his ankle that required surgery, limiting him to 49 games (48 starts). When healthy, Haslem was a force on the court, recording 11 double-doubles and 18 games with 15-plus points. His biggest offensive performance of the year came Dec. 15 against the Pacers, when Haslem put up 24 points with seven boards. Two days later, Haslem posted a season-high-tying 16 rebounds along with 18 points against the Timberwolves.

2006

Haslem appeared in 79 games (all starts) and saw 31.4 minutes per contest for the Heat during the 2006-07 campaign. He averaged 10.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists while shooting 49.2 percent from the field and 68.0 percent from the charity stripe. His best offensive performance of the season occurred Nov. 10 during a seven-point win over the Nets. In that game, Haslem put up a career-high 28 points on 10-of-14 shooting along with nine rebounds, two assists and a steal. While he came just short of a double-double that night, Haslem nonetheless posted 21 double-doubles on the season. One of those, a Nov. 18 win over Atlanta, included his biggest rebounding performance of the year -- a 21-point, 17-rebound effort. Haslem also set a career high in assists Jan. 5 against Phoenix, dishing out seven in a game that also saw him pull down 13 boards. The Miami native started all four games for the Heat in their first-round playoff defeat at the hands of the Bulls, averaging 7.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.

2005

Haslem appeared in all but one game during the 2005-06 season, starting exactly 80 games for the second straight year. Over the course of 30.8 minutes per game, he averaged 9.3 points and 7.8 rebounds while delivering strong efficiency with a 50.8 field-goal percentage and 78.9 free-throw percentage. He racked up double-digit rebounds on 22 occasions, picking up 14 double-doubles along the way. Haslem's biggest game came with the season winding down Apr. 14 against Philadelphia, when he scored a career-high 24 points with a season-high-tying 14 rebounds, five steals (also a career high) and two blocks. The Miami native went on to appear in 22 of 23 games during the Heat's championship-winning run, collecting six more double-doubles along the way. Haslem's biggest postseason performance came in Game 4 of the second round against the Nets, when he scored 20 points to go with 11 rebounds. In the decisive Game 6 of the Finals, Haslem scored 17 points with another 10 boards to help the Heat escape with a narrow victory and the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy.

2004

Haslem appeared and started in all but two games during the 2004-05 season with the Heat. He was given an expanded role during his sophomore campaign, and it resulted in new career bests. In 33.4 minutes per game, Haslem averaged career highs in points (10.9), rebounds (9.1), assists (1.4), field-goal percentage (54.0) and free-throw percentage (79.1). He set new single-game career marks of 22 points, 18 rebounds, six assists, four steals and three blocks. Arguably his best performance was Dec. 8 during a five-point win over the Bucks. Haslem posted 20 points (4-8 FG, 12-12 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists and one block in 42 minutes. It was one of his 23 double-doubles. The Heat finished the season 59-23, defeating the Nets in the first round of the playoffs and the Wizards in the second round before losing to the Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals. Haslem appeared in all 15 playoff games, averaging 9.2 points on 7.1 shots, 10 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 36.2 minutes.

2003

Following four seasons at Florida, Haslem went unselected in the 2002 NBA Draft. He spent the 2002-03 season overseas, playing in France for Chalon-Sur-Saone. His play impressed the Heat, who signed him to a contract during August of 2003. Haslem made his NBA debut during the first game of the season, Oct. 28 against the 76ers. In the loss, he posted two points (1-5 FG), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block. Overall, he appeared in 75 games (24 starts) for the Heat, averaging 7.3 points on 6.0 shots plus 6.3 rebounds in 23.9 minutes. He ranked eighth in the NBA in offensive rebound percentage (12.1) and was named to the All-Rookie second team. Haslem set single-game career highs of 20 points, 17 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks. The Heat finished the season 42-40, making the playoffs but losing in the Eastern Conference Semifinals to the Pacers after defeating the New Orleans Hornets in the First Round. Haslem appeared in all 13 games, averaging 3.6 points on 2.5 shots and 3.4 rebounds in 15.3 minutes.

Haslem will be entering his 13th NBA season, all of which have been with the Heat. He is coming off a 2014-15 campaign where he appeared in 62 games with the team and posted averages of 4.2 points and 4.2 rebounds over 16 minutes per game. At 35 years old, Haslem won't have much left in the tank, and his production in the last couple of seasons has shown that. Nevertheless, Haslem's leadership and high basketball IQ still make him a valuable piece to the club as they look to make a push back into the playoff picture. However, Haslem's intangibles can only take him so far, and his role on the team should remain minimal so long as the frontcourt rotation stays healthy. Should Haslem be forced into a bigger role on a given night, he may be good to grab some rebounds, but for the most part, the former Florida Gator will not be expected to fill the box score in his final season under contract with Miami.
Haslem decided to return to the Heat in the offseason for his 12th season in the NBA. After only playing in 46 games last season, the 34-year-old averaged 3.8 points, 0.3 assists, 0.2 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 14 minutes per contest. The Florida Gator has been a staple of Miami Heat basketball over the past decade, but last season's averages prove that Haslem is very limited in what he can contribute to the team at this point in his career. He's been on a steady decline statistically for the past seven seasons, even though that descent didn't start from all that high up to begin with, as his best season averages came in 2007-08 when he finished with 12.0 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. Beyond providing veteran leadership and short bursts of toughness playing behind Chris Bosh and Josh McRoberts this season, Haslem doesn't stand to contribute much else from a statistical standpoint.
Haslem is the starter at power forward, but his minutes and scoring contributions generally do not reflect that. He played in 75 games last season for Miami and is entering his 11th year with the team. Haslem averaged 7.4 points and 10.3 rebounds per 36 minutes on the floor. With a balance of scoring options in South Beach, Haslem has a nice role as a defensive specialist who can rotate down low, though he is a bit undersized at 6-8 for the position. His main contribution is on the rebounding end.
When LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade signed their deals with the Heat, all three took less money than they could have to allow Miami to retain Haslem. But the veteran big man's role has diminished significantly, partly because James has been so effective at the four spot. At this stage of his career, Haslem will likely be a part-time player that gets more run when Miami matches up against the league's more physical teams.
The Heat really missed Haslem last year, as he only played in 13 games after sustaining a serious foot injury. In those games played, Haslem averaged 8.0 PPG and 8.2 rebounds in only 26.5 minutes of playing time. Miami lacks size and depth amongst their forwards and centers, so they really hope Haslem can stay healthy this season. If that’s the case, Haslem could possibly average close to a double-double.
Haslem re-signed with the Heat this offseason. He will likely backup Chris Bosh at power forward but could also spend some time at center. Haslem came off the bench last season and averaged nearly 10 points and over eight rebounds a game, so his production should not suffer too much as long as he does not see a huge reduction in his minutes.
Haslem is a no-frills center. He collects adequate rebounding and scoring statistics while playing within his role on the team and making few mistakes. He spends most of his time away from the basket taking most of his shot attempts (67%) as jumpers. Relying so heavily on his jump shots hurts his overall field-goal percentage but he still shot a respectable 51.8 percent from the floor last year. He converts an above average number of his free-throw attempts (75.3%) for a big man. While the averages are nice, Haslem lacks some of the more flashy numbers other players at his position accumulate. His career per-game blocks average stands at a pedestrian 0.3, and his career assists (1.2) and steals (0.6) numbers are equally unflattering. Where Haslem finds extra light to shine is in his intelligence and discipline. He rarely makes mistakes on or off the court. Haslem committed just over one turnover per game last season and seldom commits poor and unnecessary fouls. Haslem started 75 games last year, but he could experience a reduced role this season. Two factors currently pose a potential threat to Haslem’s minutes in the coming season: Michael Beasley should push for more minutes at the power forward position, where Haslem spends most of his time, and increased roster health could also reduce Haslem’s opportunities. Even without those developments, Haslem will serve as the team’s fourth, fifth, or even sixth scoring option most nights, limiting his potential.
A hardworking big man in the mold of Charles Oakley, Haslem missed a significant portion of last season due to a painful bone spur condition in his ankle that required surgery. He’s expected back and near-full strength this season, but has probably been supplanted in the starting lineup by second overall pick Michael Beasley. Haslem could still emerge as a viable option for fantasy players if he picks up minutes at center – which would make sense, given the NBA’s overall trend towards smaller, quicker lineups and the fact that Miami’s options at the pivot – Mark Blount and Jamaal Magloire – leave a lot to be desired.
Haslem is one of the most consistent players in the NBA; a throwback power forward that does dirty work on the boards, hits the open jumper and doesn’t make many mistakes. This makes him an un-sexy yet valuable roto asset. He is capable of producing a double-double on a nightly basis and with good shooting percentages. When Shaquille O’Neal inevitably misses his games Haslem steps up the production even more. He shouldn’t be drafted until the later rounds in most leagues, but he does deserve a roster spot.
Haslem won't dazzle on the floor, but he's a serviceable reserve option for fantasy owners, pitching in the occasional double-double (14 last season) and not hurting in either of the percentage categories (50.8 field-goal percentage and 78.9 percent from the free-throw line).
Haslem is like the 10-years-younger version of P.J. Brown, good for 11 or so points and nine or so rebounds just about every night. He's going to lose some playing time this year, though, now that the Heat have acquired Antoine Walker and drafted Wayne Simien. The Heat did sign him to a new deal, however, so they're clearly interested in keeping him as a big part of their offense, using him to do the dirty work around the basket while defenses focus on Shaq and D-Wade. Haslem doesn't take many shots, but he shoots for a very high percentage, hitting 55% from the field last season. Haslem can contribute in a deep league or as an injury replacement, but he's more valuable to the Heat than he is to your fantasy team.
Undrafted out of Florida in 2002, Haslem went overseas to get himself into shape and hone his basketball skills. It worked. It was a surprise when Haslem was given a roster spot and a place in the regular rotation in 2003, but we soon learned why. Haslem is the ultimate team player (we imagine coach Keith Askins had something to do with this) and contributes invaluably in ways that can not be captured statistically. He is not going to ever be a fantasy star, but he will get minutes, and he will be the role player Shaquille O'Neal has always wanted at his side. Look for Haslem to be the #1 power forward all season, as he is the perfect fit for the role of the "fullback." If you need rebounds, Haslem will be a nice option.
With the loss of Alonzo Mourning, Haslem should provide depth behind Samaki Walker in 2003-04. May not provide solid fantasy numbers, but could be a solid 12th man on an NBA roster.
