The Heat aren't sure whether Dion Waiters will be ready for training camp, but insist that he's going to be at 100 percent health whenever he does return.
"I'm not sure when, but he's going to be more than 100 percent. If this was 100 percent this year, he's going to be better than that next year, that's for sure… So I think this is going to be a really important summer for him. He's going to be here and he'll be working a ton behind the scenes just to get his legs right, then he'll work on the next step of getting in world-class shape, and then he'll get into the next phase of really developing his basketball skills," said coach Spoelstra. Waiters was hit with a 6-9 month timetable following a much-overdue procedure on his balky ankle. It was a problem that dogged him for pretty much a year and a half, so perhaps a lengthy layoff will finally get Waiters right.
