The Miami Heat announced Sunday that Jarvis Varnado has been recalled from the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League. He was assigned on March 1.

Varnado appeared in five games (four starts) for the Skyforce and averaged 9.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.20 blocks while shooting 43.9 percent from the field. He blocked six shots vs. Idaho on March 5 and then posted a 14-point, 10-rebound double-double at Santa Cruz on March 8. After playing in 10 games earlier this season for Sioux Falls, he has now appeared in 15 NBA Development League games (14 starts) this season averaging 12.3 points, 9.9 rebounds, 3.67 blocks, 1.1 assists and 29.9 minutes while shooting 52.2 percent from the field.

The Miami Heat will have a stretch through the end of the month in which they will play 12 games over a 20-day span.  After signing two 10-day contracts with the Heat, Varnado signed with Miami for the remainder of the season on January 30. He has appeared in five games with the Heat this season, totaling two points, two blocks and an assist in 19 minutes of action while shooting 1-of-3 from the field.

Sioux Falls will play the Iowa Energy twice in Des Moines on Friday and Saturday before returning home for a pair of games with the Canton Charge on March 22 & 23.  The Skyforce are currently 7th among the top 8 teams in the NBA Development League with a 22-18 record.  Erie is number 8 with the same record as the ‘Force, but Sioux Falls owns the tie-breaker.  Close behind are Maine (21-20) and Ft. Wayne (19-20) in the playoff chase.
