Miami Heat News: Heat to Sign Okaro White Through Hardship Exception

1 Min Read

In a season filled with a seemingly never-ending string of injuries, the Miami Heat have been granted a hardship exception from the NBA, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical. The hardship exception is being granted because Miami has four players that have missed at least three games. Those four players are Chris Bosh, Josh McRoberts, Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson.

As a result, the team has announced that it will be signing forward Okaro White from their D-League affiliate Sioux Falls Skyforce to a 10-day contract.
