It’s the same ankle that kept Waiters out of the final 13 games last season, so even though the injury didn’t look too bad, the Heat might play it safe and keep him out a few games. If that’s the case, look for Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington to soak up his usage. Johnson is already a standard league guy (bad shooting and all), while Ellington is one of the best specialists for threes out there.
Dion Waiters will not return after spraining his left ankle. This is the same ankle that forced him to miss the final 13 games last season.
