Heat's Rodney McGruder: Undergoes surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder (leg) underwent successful surgery and is expected to begin rehabilitation in one week, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

The team has yet to release an official timetable for his return, though according to Shams Charania of the Vertical, he'll likely miss 3-to-6 months. While McGruder is sidelined, expect the likes of Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington and Justise Winslow to see more run.

Heat's Rodney McGruder: Out 3-to-6 months with stress fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder will undergo surgery to repair a stress fracture in his leg and is expected to miss 3-to-6 months, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

This is a big blow for Miami after McGruder had a strong rookie campaign with the Heat last season and was expected to take on an even larger role to start this year. With McGruder likely out until at least the All-Star break, the Heat will have to make some changes to their starting lineup, which will likely result in more minutes for the likes of Josh Richardson, Justise Winslow and Tyler Johnson, whether it be as a starter or off the bench.

Heat's Rodney McGruder: Starts again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder started Thursday's preseason game against the Nets and finished scoreless in 17 minutes.

It was the second straight start at small forward for McGruder, whose complementary style of play fits well with the first unit, according to coach Erik Spoelstra. Whether McGruder is able to hold onto the spot long-term remains to be seen, but he'll face stiff competition from Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson, who scored eight and six points, respectively, off the bench Thursday.

Heat's Rodney McGruder: Will start at small forward Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGruder will start at small forward for Sunday's preseason matchup with the Hawks.

The Heat found themselves decimated by injuries last season, allowing McGruder to start 65 of the 78 games he played in. With Justise Winslow (shoulder) back at full strength, it was expected that McGruder would start the season on the bench. However, it appears he'll at least get the chance to defend his spot in the top unit by drawing the start Sunday. That relegates Winslow the bench for now, though it could just be an attempt by coach Erik Spoeltra to ease Winslow back into the swing of the things after missing so much time.
