  • Heat's Dion Waiters: Will stay with Heat
    By RotoWire Staff

    Waiters is finalizing a deal to stay with the Heat, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Waiters, who had a breakout year last season, has opted to stay with the team that gave him the opportunity to prove himself after bouncing around Cleveland and Oklahoma City for the first four years of his career. He averaged 15.8 points, 4.3 assists and 3.3 rebounds and 1.8 three-pointers across 30.1 minutes per game during the 2016-17 campaign. There's no reason to believe he won't see that type of workload next season, making him worth serious consideration in a variety of fantasy formats.

  • Heat's Dion Waiters: Opts out of contract
    By RotoWire Staff

    Waiters (ankle) declined his player option for next season Friday and will become an unrestricted free agent, Jack Maloney of CBS Sports reports. Waiters is coming off a career-defining season with the Heat, in which he averaged 15.8 points and 4.3 assists per game while shooting at nearly a 40 percent clip from behind the arc. Despite missing 36 games with groin and ankle injuries, the 25-year-old increased his value exponentially and should be a hot commodity once free agency gets underway in July.

  • Waiters (ankle) will dress for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, but will only see the floor in an emergency situation, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. According to Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald, coach Erik Spoelstra that Waiters is making progress and "looks better than he did 10 days" earlier, but the swingman isn't moving at full speed just yet while he recovers from the sprained left ankle. As a result, look for the Heat to continue to rely heavily on the wing quartet of Josh Richardson, Rodney McGruder, Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington for the regular-season finale.

  • Heat's Dion Waiters: Won't play Monday vs. Cavaliers
    By RotoWire Staff

    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 a sprained left ankle, but the Heat's decision to upgrade him to questionable suggests he'll have a legitimate chance at returning for one or both of the team's final two contests of the regular season. Look for the Heat to reevaluate Waiters following morning shootaround, at which point more clarity on his situation should be made available. Even if Waiters is cleared to play, it's likely his playing time would be restricted on some level, making him a poor lineup option in season-long leagues heading into the final week of the season.
