Dion Waiters may undergo season-ending surgery

According to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, Waiters will opt to go under the knife, which would cause his 2017-18 campaign to come to an abrupt end.

A report indicated that Waiters was contemplating getting surgery on his ankle after speaking to multiple doctors on how to proceed.

Before arriving at his decision, he consulted with specialists to weigh the possibility of season-ending surgery or a procedure that could've allowed him to return before the playoffs. His recovery is expected to take four to six months, a league source said.

Waiters has had issues with the left ankle for a while, and he's missed the last nine games after he turned the ankle in the first quarter of Miami's game against the Mavericks on December 22.
