Report: Dion Waiters Considering Offseason Ankle Surgery

Dion Waiters will consider having surgery this offseason to repair his problematic left ankle, conceding Tuesday that it probably won’t be fully healed until such a procedure takes place.

The Miami Heat guard missed his second straight game Tuesday because of a recurrence of the sprain that kept him off the floor for the final 13 games of the season. There’s no timetable for his return, though Waiters said he does not expect this absence to be like the month he missed when he first sprained the ankle in March.

The ankle never fully healed, and Waiters has been dealing with it all season.

“I’ve played through it, though,” Waiters said. “I’ve got to. I’m not making any excuses. It is what it is. It’s something I don’t like to talk about because there’s nothing we really can do right now but try to take care of it, get it stronger, things like that. I don’t want to be in this predicament where it’s a little tweak, you’ve got to miss a decent amount just off a little tweak. That sucks.”

He was adamant that surgery will not take place before the Heat season ends.
