The Miami Heat will be getting a boost soon as Dion Waiters is ready to make his season debut for the team.

Waiters underwent ankle surgery and has been sidelined since, forcing him to miss the season so far, and has not played for more that a year.

Waiters claims he had an incredible stint with the Sioux Falls Skyforce in the G League, the Heat’s affiliate.

Heat’s Dwyane Wade Reflect on Final All-Star Game

Published

on

After making his final appearance at an NBA All-Star game as an active player, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade took time to reflect on the experience as he enters the final few months of his NBA playing career.

“Whatever my legacy is and whatever it will become, it’s what I’ve been building since anybody ever heard my name or before that,” said Wade, soon turning his attention to the remainder of the season, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

“So at the end of the day, when it’s over, I think that the respect that I’ve been getting from fans around the world, fans in arenas, the players that I’m playing against, that’s the thing that makes me fill my heart with joy. Because I just want a respect for what I bring to the table, and that’s in both on the court and off the court. And I’ve been getting that.”

Wade will be calling it a career at the end of the season.

“So I’ve just got to keep it going. I’m 37 years old, I’m a young man in life. I’ve got a long life ahead of me, and I’m destined to do other things that’s great. So see what that is.”

Miami Heat guard Wayne Ellington hasn’t seen much action recently, logging three consecutive DNPs since he logged only 14 minutes of action back on December 12th during Miami’s loss to the Utah Jazz.

Ellington, who is fresh off a historic 2017-2018 campaign in which he set a new Heat franchise record for most three pointers made during a season, is staying positive and working hard during his benching.

“I’m just working and staying in the gym. It’s therapeutic to me,” said Ellington, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “I can only control what I can control. It’s all I can do at this point. Give back to the team, just continue to give, be a good teammate and enjoy these guys’ success.”

“It’s a tough situation for anybody,” Ellington said of the demotion. “I appreciate J.J. saying he has empathy for me. Those are my guys, we’re brothers at the end of the day.”
