Winslow (shoulder) indicated in an interview that he's going through contact drills, the Sun Sentinel reports.
Winslow underwent shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum back in January, costing him the final three and a half months of the regular season. He was able to shed his sling in February and has now started taking part in drills, including those that allow contact. While Winslow did admit that he's yet to go through any scrimmages, the fact that he's already comfortable taking contact bodes well for a full recovery ahead of the 2017-18 season. He'll likely target the start of training camp for a return, so look for additional updates to be provided once camp nears.
Coach Erik Spoelstra said Friday that Winslow (shoulder) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from season-ending surgery to repair a torn right labrum, which he underwent back in January, Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post reports.
Winslow isn't under consideration to return later in the regular season or the playoffs in the event the Heat qualify, but it's excellent news for his long-term prospects nonetheless. The second-year forward is on track to be back at full health for the start of training camp, as he's already shed the sling on his right shoulder and was able to do some light shooting Friday.
Winslow (shoulder) recently shed his sling, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Winslow was expected to start rehab activities following the All-Star break and now that he's been able to shed his sling, it appears he's ready to ramp up his recovery. He's already been ruled out for the duration of the 2016-17 season after undergoing surgery in early January, so the Heat will likely take it slow with his rehab in order to have him as healthy as possible for next season's training camp.

Winslow has already been ruled out for the rest of the season, but the 20-year-old at least seems to be progressing well as he prepares himself for the start of the 2017-18 campaign. After undergoing surgery on his torn right labrum in early January, he's closing in on the end of his six-week timetable for wearing a sling. Once he's freed of the sling, Winslow should gradually increase his activities in the coming months.
Winslow underwent successful surgery Thursday to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder and has officially been ruled out for the rest of the season, Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Winslow is expected to be in a sling for six weeks, so he won't officially be able to begin any sort of rehab until mid-to-late February. That said, he's officially been ruled out for the rest of the season, meaning he'll now start the long road to recovery. The only good news for the Heat is that Winslow isn't going anywhere, as his contract is locked in already for next season. The Heat have yet to announce who they'll go with as their starter at small forward and it will likely change depending on each week's matchups. However, guys like Josh Richardson, Rodney McGruder and James Johnson figure to benefit the most.
