• Dion Waiters
    G, Miami Heat

    Dion Waiters did not travel with the team for the preseason opener.

    Waiters is not expected to be ready for the start of the regular season so him being ruled out is no surprise but his not traveling with the team is new. Reports on Waiters' conditioning throughout training camp have been less than favorable. Despite positive reinforcement from Coach Erik Spoelstra trade rumors have persisted and this absence will likely add to the speculation. The Heat have been involved in a number of trade rumors so its possible that Waiters finds himself on a new roster prior to taking the floor.
