The Miami Heat on Friday night confirmed reports injured starting shooting guard Dion Waiters will undergo surgery to fix his troublesome left ankle.

Waiters sprained the ankle on December 23, causing him to miss the past eight games.

According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, "Waiters said in September he was told last season that the estimated timetable for a return from such surgery would be eight to 10 months".

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

Wall Street Stock Recommendations: JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), TransCanada Corporation (TRP)
A number of large investors have recently bought and sold shares of the stock. 125 funds opened positions while 635 raised stakes. Wall Street is only getting more bullish on the stock, with 15 of analysts who cover JPM having a buy-equivalent rating.


Brian Windhorst and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com first reported the expected procedure Thursday and noted it will bring an end to his 2017-18 season. For the bonus to kick in, Waiters would have had to have played at least 70 of Miami's 82 games. But it's still a tough blow for the squad, which now sits at 24-17 and in fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Waiters was limited to 46 games last season while battling groin and ankle injuries.

Waiters ranks second on the team in scoring at 14.3 points per game while also averaging 3.8 assists and 2.8 rebounds across 30 appearances. Goran Dragic, Josh Richardson, Wayne Ellington and Tyler Johnson all benefit from a fantasy perspective with this news.
