Heat's Dion Waiters: Undergoes successful surgery, out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters (ankle) underwent successful surgery on his ankle Monday and has officially been ruled out for the rest of the 2017-18 season, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.

Waiters' procedure was to address instability in his left ankle, though he apparently also had a preexisting navicular bone fracture that was repaired as well. While the Heat didn't provide an exact timetable for a return, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the expected recovery could be anywhere from six to nine months. That brings Waiters' status for training camp into question, though we should continue to get updates throughout the offseason on how he's progressing. Wayne Ellington, Josh Richardson, Tyler Johnson and Derrick Jones are all expected to benefit with added minutes now that Waiters is done for the year.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Opts for surgery, out for year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters has decided to undergo season-ending surgery on his injured left ankle after receiving second opinions, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Prior to this decision, Waiters had been resting and rehabilitating the ankle, but it was unclear if he had been making significant progress. Considering he'll undergo surgery to correct the issue, it seems doubtful he was recovering as hoped. He missed 13 games last season due to a sprain of the same ankle, but ultimately opted to decline surgery, as he was entering free agency, where he ended up signing a four-year, $52 million deal with the Heat. Regardless, with him now sidelined for the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign, coach Erik Spoelstra will seemingly continue relying on Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington and Josh Richardson to hold down the shooting guard position.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Pondering season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters is reportedly giving consideration to undergoing season-ending surgery on his left ankle, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

For the time being, Waiters has opted for the rest-and-rehab method to address the sprained ankle, but it's unclear if he's made much notable progress while sitting out the Heat's last nine games. Waiters previously missed 13 games last season with a sprain to the same ankle, ultimately bypassing surgery over the summer due to his status as a free agent. The swingman wound up inking a four-year, $52 million contract with Miami, so surgery could be a more realistic possibility this time around now that he has some financial security. Waiters has previously stated that he would need 8-to-10 months to require from such a procedure.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Out next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters (ankle) is not traveling with the Heat for their upcoming two-game road trip, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Waiters is set to miss his eighth and ninth straight games on Tuesday and Wednesday, as he continues to work back from an ankle injury. He's still expected to get a second opinion on his ankle at some point this week, though the Heat haven't provided an exact date for that, so a timetable for return remains uncertain. Waiters will have nearly a week off for additional rehabilitation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Bucks, which marks his next opportunity to get back on the court. Tyler Johnson should remain in the starting lineup over the next few contests, while Wayne Ellington should see extra run off the bench.

Heat's Dion Waiters: Confirmed out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waiters (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jazz, Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Waiters is expecting to get a second opinion on his ankle at some point this week, which isn't necessarily encouraging that a return is forthcoming. He'll be held out once again Sunday, but look for another update on his overall timetable following his appointment later this week. Waiters' next shot to play will come on Tuesday against the Raptors.
