The decision to have the surgery represents a change of heart for Waiters, who previously told reporters that he was considering an operation but wouldn't have it done until after the season. "I didn't even do anything when I twisted it".
His 3-point accuracy has dropped 10 percent and his scoring is modestly down to 14.3 points 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.
Ultimately, Waiters signed a four-year, $52 million deal with the Heat in July after Miami was unable to land Gordon Hayward in free agency. He has spent much of his career coming off the bench and has only transitioned into a starting role on a more permanent basis since joining the Heat. But it's still a tough blow for the squad, which now sits at 24-17 and in fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
