Dion Waiters will not play on Saturday night but an MRI and X-rays on his injured ankle have come back negative, per Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
That’s a little bit of good news, as it hopefully isn’t connected to the brutal injury that sidelined Waiters last season. While he’s out, the red-hot Wayne Ellington and Josh Richardson (yes, both are red-hot) will see more minutes while Tyler Johnson should also keep a steady workload. All three are playing pretty well at the moment and are definitely worth using. Johnson and Richardson are better fantasy plays than Waiters regardless of their recent play, frankly.
