Eric Spoelstra said this morning that Dion Waiters is a game-time decision for tonight’s game against the Cavs.
Waiters has been practicing lately and all signs point to him returning tonight after the season-ending surgery he had last year. The Heat have a lot of mouths to feed with Tyler Johnson, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Jones Jr. and Rodney McGruder currently in Spoelstra’s rotation, so he is not a must-own player for now. Wade is questionable with an illness tonight and if he sits out Waiters might be looking at minutes in the teens even though it’s almost certain that the Heat will monitor his minutes.
