White (foot) is no longer using a scooter and is in a walking boot, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
White underwent surgery in mid-November to correct a fractured foot, though the Heat declined to provide a timetable for his return. As a result, despite this progress, there's still no word as to when he may be back.
White underwent successful surgery Thursday to repair the fifth metatarsal fracture in his left foot.
The fracture originally occurred during Tuesday's practice and after undergoing surgery, White should be on the sidelines for an extended period of time. That being said, the Heat declined to provide any sort of timetable following the surgery, so for now, White can be considered out indefinitely. White's minutes will likely be taken on by a committee approach, though a few players specifically that could see some extra minutes include Justise Winslow, Bam Adebayo and James Johnson.
White has been diagnosed with a fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot and will undergo surgery Thursday. There is currently no timetable for his return.
White suffered the injury during Tuesday's practice. While not a huge part of the Heat's rotation, he was still called upon to play 13.3 minutes per game over a six-game stretch and has proven to be quality depth for the team since last season. If nothing else, this likely opens up more time for the likes of Justice Winslow and Bam Adebayo if the team suffers injuries to their other forwards.
White will not play in Wednesday's game against the Wizards after suffering an injury to his left foot during practice Tuesday, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
White has not seen the floor in the Heat's last three games, so his injury shouldn't affect Miami's rotation. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time.
White will shift to a bench role for Wednesday's game against the Suns, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
White started the last four games for the Heat, a stretch where he averaged just 3.5 points and 2.5 rebounds across 15.8 minutes. He wasn't overly effective and with Dion Wiaters (personal) returning to the lineup, White will get moved to the bench, while Justise Winslow will remain in the starting lineup at the power forward spot. The fact that White regularly sees minutes in the teens should make him an unappealing fantasy option moving forward in the majority of leagues.
