Waiters, 24, has played a big role on the Heat since signing with the team in July. The starting shooting guard is averaging 14.2 points, 4.0 assists and 3.4 rebounds on 38 percent shooting. Waiters is the third leading scorer on the team and takes the most shots at 14.3 attempts a game.
The veteran sat out his first game of the season during Miami’s 112-104 loss to the Boston Celtics. In his absence, newcomer Rodney McGruder got the start. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard has been averaging a modest 11.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in his last four games, an encouraging sign of things to come.
The short-handed Heat take on the Denver Nuggets tonight at 9:00 p.m E/T at Pepsi Center.
