Jarnell Stokes was reassigned to the Miami Heat 's D-League affiliate Sioux Falls Skyforce on Thursday.
Stokes will rejoin the Skyforce, who he has played 14 games with this season. He was voted to the D-League's All-Star Game and has posted seven double-doubles for the Skyforce. He has started in all 14 games he has been with the team.
