Waiters' stats aren't mind-blowing: 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, shooting just 39.8% from the field and 30.6% from three-point range in 30 games played.

The decision to have the surgery represents a change of heart for Waiters, who previously told reporters that he was considering an operation but wouldn't have it done until after the season. The Heat's regular season ends April 11. But it's still a tough blow for the squad, which now sits at 24-17 and in fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
