Dion Waiters was held out of Thursday’s practice.
Waiters is dealing with an ankle injury and has no timetable for return. He’s reportedly considering offseason surgery after a nasty ankle injury cost him the end of last season and the discomfort persisted into this year, but he intends to play through it for as long as possible. With awful efficiency and serious injury risk, Waiters isn’t someone you need to hold onto in standard leagues. He’s been floating around the top-150 all season and has probably been below the cut line more than he’s been a positive for fantasy owners. Wayne Ellington and Tyler Johnson should continue to thrive.
