    Heat forward Josh McRoberts set for training camp

    Heat forward Josh McRoberts (knee) is cleared for training camp, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports. McRoberts was limited to just 17 games last season with a knee injury but early indications from Miami suggest he'll be ready for the start of the regular season come this October. He's in store for a role off the bench behind Chris Bosh (lungs), but both Bosh and McRoberts could conceivably spend time on the court at the same time, which benefits McRoberts' value.

    Heat PF Josh McRoberts (knee) is close to 100 percent

    Heat power forward Josh McRoberts says he is feeling close to 100 percent recovered from the knee injury that cost him the majority of last season, per The Indy Star. "I don't think I'm ever going to see 100 percent (laughs). I've played too long to be 100 percent, but I'm getting pretty close. I've had a great summer here rehabbing with St. Vincent and think I'll be ready to go. I can't wait for the season to get going. I'm just trying to rehab and get back here for the start of camp. I'm excited to get back on the court and do what I love to do." McRoberts was limited to 17 games last season for Miami.

    Heat's Josh McRoberts confirms he's out for year

    The Heat's Josh McRoberts accompanied the team on its road trip, but that doesn't mean he'll be taking the court. McRoberts suffered a meiniscus tear on December 9 and has also battled back and toe problems this year. He's participating in shooting drills with the team, but he won't be playing again this year. "I wouldn't think so," McRoberts said, per the Miami Herald. "I would still think I'd be out for the year at this point." McRoberts said his injury, and the surgery to repair it, was "totally different" from Kemba Walker's and Derrick Rose's, both of whom were able to return to the court this season. "The day I got the surgery I was hoping to come back right away, but I'm just taking it a day at a time and trying to recover," he said. "They announced I was out for the season earlier in the year, so we're still standing by that in terms of it would be tough to make a comeback because of how long the recovery is from surgery."

    Heat's Pat Riley denies he had a package deal for Nets' Brook Lopez

    Heat president Pat Riley denied previous reports that Miami had offered forward Josh McRoberts in a package deal for Nets center Brook Lopez, according to the Miami Herald. According to a previous report from Yahoo! Sports, Miami offered McRoberts, Norris Cole and Chris Andersen for Lopez. Trade talks for Lopez died down, but could ramp back up leading up to the trade deadline. "There's a lot of conversation but we're not active," Riley said. "I'm not going to move chairs. I've been in the chair-moving business before and that's all you do is move chairs around… "If there is something that makes sense that can really help us, then we would consider it. But we're not about to give up assets that we don't have, that we need, to make a lateral move out of desperation, to take what I think is a playoff team to make the playoffs. If it's a player to take us into the future, we'll think about it. It's fluid."

    Heat officially declare Josh McRoberts out for the season

    After undergoing successful knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, the Heat announced forward Josh McRoberts is out for the remainder of the season. The Heat signed McRoberts in the offseason to be the starting power forward, but he was only able to make four starts for the Heat this season. To lessen the loss of McRoberts, the Heat applied for a $2.65 million disabled-player salary-cap exception, reports the Sun Sentinel. If the Heat are awarded the exception, they are expected to use it to potentially lure Josh Smith to Miami.
