Heat's Waiters (ankle) opts for season-ending surgery

Dion Waiters will undergo season-ending surgery on left ankle Dion Waiters To Undergo Season-Ending Surgery, According To Report
Sammy Stanley | 13 January, 2018, 07:45

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said as recently as last week that season-ending surgery wasn't the top option as the guard continued to seek medical opinions.

Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters has missed 9-straight games with his injured left ankle.

"We are confident this surgery will resolve all of the issues with the ankle", said the Heat in a statement.

Although no timetable is given for his return, Waiters was told if he had surgery after the initial injury in March, he would have missed eight to 10 months.

Wells Fargo & Co (WFC) Issues Earnings Results
Also, VP Richard Levy sold 97,000 shares of Wells Fargo & Co stock in a transaction that occurred on Thursday, November 30th. Grand Jean Capital Management Inc sold 28,068 shares as the company's stock declined 8.66% while stock markets rallied.

Waiters played in 30 of the Heat's first 32 games - missing two games for the birth of his daughter back in November - and then rolled the ankle badly driving to the basket early in a win over Dallas on December 22. For the bonus to kick in, Waiters would have had to have played at least 70 of Miami's 82 games.

His season will end having appeared in 30 games and averaging 14.3 points, 3.8 assists, and 2.6 rebounds per game. To reach that incentive, he would have to play in 40 of Miami's final 41 games, which is unlikely given his current status and might lead him to make a decision soon.

It's unclear what changed leading to the surgery announcement, but it's a major loss for Miami, which now sits fourth in the Eastern Conference with a 24-17 record.
