According to Sun Sentinel‘s Ira Winderman, past actions made by team president Pat Riley could indicate that he may be willing to leave James Johnson and Dion Waiters out of the lineup for the foreseeable future, if on-court success continues.
Pat Riley was “visibly angry” in the wake of two discipline issues surrounding James Johnson and Dion Waiters. The team dismissed Johnson from training camp for failing to meet conditioning requirements and suspended Waiters for what Riley deemed “unprofessional conduct.” What is quite clear is that both futures of Johnson and Waiters in Miami are shaky at the moment. And while their Heat careers may not be over, they’re going to both have to work quite hard to prove that they still want, and deserve, to remain in South Florida. Both players shouldn’t be rostered right now with their NBA careers totally up in the air.
