Dion Waiters To Have Season-Ending Knee Surgery

Dion Waiters To Have Season-Ending Knee Surgery

Waiters is due to receive a $1.1 million bonus if he plays at least 70 games this season.

Prior to this decision, Waiters had been resting and rehabilitating the ankle, but it was unclear if he had been making significant progress.

Heat guard Dion Waiters will undergo season-ending surgery on his left ankle, reports The Vertical's Shams Charania.

Waiters' year ends with 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 23.7 FanDuel points per game.

The decision to have the surgery represents a change of heart for Waiters, who previously told reporters that he was considering an operation but wouldn't have it done until after the season. "In the last 10 games, Miami is averaging 104.3 points and shooting 46.4 percent as opposed to 99.9 points on 45.2 percent shooting the first 31". But it's still a tough blow for the squad, which now sits at 24-17 and in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Tyler Johnson, Josh Richardson and Wayne Ellington will continue to take on heavier workloads, with Johnson and Richardson in particular having the ball in their hands more often.
