What to make of Miami Heat's Dion Waiters' season-ending surgery

The former Syracuse shooting guard has received multiple medical opinions on his ankle, according to the Miami Herald.

Prior to going down with the injury, Waiters appeared in 30 games for the Heat this season, averaging 14.3 points in 30.6 minutes per game.

Having missed the past seven games with an ankle injury, Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters is weighing all of his options as the National Basketball Association season hits its second half. His three-point shooting percentage also dropped from 39.5 percent to 30.6 percent this season. Waiters, 26, was in line to receive a $1.1 million bonus if he played in at least 70 games this season.

A clause in Waiters' contract could sway his decision to undergo season-ending surgery rather than wait until the offseason. His 2.3 turnovers per game are a career high.
