On Tuesday, Dion Waiters said that he will consider having surgery this offseason to repair his problematic left ankle after conceding that it probably won’t be fully healed until such a procedure takes place.
He was adamant that surgery will not take place before the Heat season ends. “No,” Waiters said. “Hell, no.” There’s currently no timetable for his return, though the 26-year-old said he does not expect this absence to be like the month he missed when he first sprained it last March. The streaky guard is averaging 14.3 points this season and most of his stats are fairly comparable to a year ago, except 3-point shooting. He was at nearly 40 percent last season and is barely at 30 percent this year putting his value outside the top-200.
