Miami Heat shooting guard Dion Waiters is reportedly expected to undergo season-ending surgery on his bothersome left ankle, according to Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania.

Waiters has been seeking outside opinions on the ankle in Los Angeles, with, according to a Sun Sentinel source, the Heat huddling Thursday to discuss the approach going forward.

ESPN reports that the surgery is expected in the next two weeks and that recovery should take between four and six months.

Waiters, 26, has missed the past nine games because of the injury, including Wednesday night's contest against the Pacers.

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.
