Waiters (ankle) will only see the floor in an emergency situation during Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Waiters will almost certainly miss his 13th game in a row Wednesday, as coach Erik Spoelstra likely doesn't want to risk further injury to his sprained left ankle just prior to the playoffs. In his absence, expect the usual crew of Rodney McGruder, Josh Richardson, Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington to help pick up his slack.
Waiters (ankle) will not play Monday versus the Cavs, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Waiters' sideline stint will be extended to 12 games Monday, and with just one regular-season tilt left afterward, it's possible he could be done until the playoffs. Regardless of whether that's the case, Waiters can take pride in having put together the best campaign of his mercurial five-year career, evidenced by his averages of 15.8 points, 4.3 assists and 3.3 rebounds.
Waiters (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cavaliers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Waiters has missed the last 11 games with an ankle injury and has yet to receive clearance from team doctors for a return to the court. Look for him to be reevaluated again following Monday's morning shootaround, which should give us a better indication of his availability against the Cavaliers later that night. If Waiters can't play, Josh Richardson would pick up another start.
Waiters (ankle) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Raptors, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Waiters has yet to join the Heat on their current three-game road trip, and with the team playing in Washington on Saturday, it appears safe to rule out the 25-year-old for that contest as well. Chances of Waiters returning before the regular season draws to a close April 12 are looking increasingly bleak, as the team has yet to provide any indication that he's close to returning to full practice. Rodney McGruder and Josh Richardson should remain in line for extended minutes while assuming starting roles at the two wing spots for as long as Waiters is sidelined.
Waiters (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Wednesday will mark Waiters' ninth straight missed game without a concrete timetable for return. That being said, he resumed conditioning work Sunday -- a good sign for his availability before the regular season comes to a close. Josh Richardson will likely draw another start in Waiters' absence.
