Dion Waiters to undergo season-ending surgery

Waiters is likely to have the surgery sometime within the next two weeks. According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, he's opted to undergo season-ending surgery.

Waiters has been seeking outside opinions on the ankle in Los Angeles, with, according to a Sun Sentinel source, the Heat huddling Thursday to discuss the approach going forward. His recovery time is four to six months.

Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters has reportedly made a decision to undergo season-ending ankle surgery, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

USA auto sales dip for 1st time since '09
Sales for the month of December 2017 rose 0.9% to 242,049 vehicles from 239,854 vehicles in the same month a year ago . Both auto manufacturers' December sales beat analyst's forecasts and ended a disappointing year on a brighter note.

Waiters, 26, has missed the past nine games because of the injury, including Wednesday night's contest against the Pacers. Waiters' expected absence for the rest of the season is a major blow for Miami's depth.

The Heat now sit fourth in the Eastern Conference.

Waiters, who hasn't played since December 22, said last month he was aiming to delay surgery until the offseason after forgoing the option to have a procedure over the summer. In 30 games this year, Waiters was averaging 14.3 points and 3.8 assists in 31 minutes of action.
