Miami Heat forward James Ennis said the tendinitis in his knee has cleared up and he is now 100 percent healthy, the Miami Herald reports.
Ennis attributed the knee tendinitis to his deep struggles in summer league play, during which he shot 29.7 percent from the floor in seven games and turned the ball over 23 times against just 11 assists. The forward said he was only about 65 percent healthy during those games, but believes he'll turn in improved performance during the upcoming preseason games now that his knee is no longer problematic. The former second-round pick is far from a lock to make the Heat roster, and likely wouldn't be much more than a deep bench player even if he escapes camp with a spot on the squad.
In 62 games during his rookie season, Ennis averaged 5.0 points and 2.8 rebounds.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said, "Everybody is ready to go," when asked about the health of his team. Ennis hasn't played in Miami's previous four games due to a hip injury. Ennis is averaging 4.1 points and 2.4 rebounds per game.

His status for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers has not been determined. In 50 games, he is averaging 4.1 points and 2.4 rebounds.
Ennis failed to travel with the team because of a sore right knee and an illness. He is averaging 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 43 games. Williams will now have missed four straight games because of a hip injury. Both players will get a chance to rest during the All-Star break.
Miami is a 12 1/2-point underdog at Cleveland, according to VegasInsider.com.
