Rotoworld.com reported that Waiters had his first double-double of his career against the Heat, scoring 17 points and added 11 assists. But he also shot just 6-of-19 from the floor and turned the ball over six times. He left following an apparent hip injury after playing 41 minutes.
The is no word as to the severity of Waiters' injury, so would could assume he is day-to-day but could be ready to play on Thursday. Matthew Dellavedova, who had five points and six assists in 23 minutes off the bench, would likely start if Waiters is unable to play against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday.
Waiters, a second-year guard out of Syracuse, averaged 14.7 points, 3 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game as a rookie last season. His numbers in his second season are nearly identical, averaging 14.5 points, 2.7 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game.
