Dion Waiters to undergo season-ending surgery

Miami Heat What to make of Miami Heat's Dion Waiters' season-ending surgery
Freda Brock | 12 January, 2018, 23:21

To reach that incentive, he would have to play in 40 of Miami's final 41 games, which is unlikely given his current status and might lead him to make a decision soon.

Heat guard Dion Waiters will undergo season-ending surgery on his left ankle, reports The Vertical's Shams Charania.

Prior to going down with the injury, Waiters appeared in 30 games for the Heat this season, averaging 14.3 points in 30.6 minutes per game.

As with the softwood lumber dispute, workers on both sides of the border are harmed by the trade war. The irony here is that Canada is making the same complaint about the United States.

Ultimately, Waiters signed a four-year, $52 million deal with the Heat in July after Miami was unable to land Gordon Hayward in free agency. He shot 39.8 percent from the field overall, including 30.6 percent from 3-point range.

Waiters, who hasn't played since December 22, said last month he was aiming to delay surgery until the offseason after forgoing the option to have a procedure over the summer. He first entered the league as the fourth-overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers out of Syracuse in the 2012 NBA Draft and made the NBA All-Rookie First Team. Tyler Johnson, Josh Richardson and Wayne Ellington will continue to take on heavier workloads, with Johnson and Richardson in particular having the ball in their hands more often.
