"It's just annoying, man. It sucks, for real," Waiters told The Miami Herald after the game. "The littlest thing [affects it]. It's whatever, though."
Waiters chose to rehab his ankle over the summer instead of having surgery, as he felt that was the best option heading into free agency. Waiters ended up coming back to the Heat after signing a four-year, $47.3 million contract. There is a chance he will have to deal with left ankle pain for a good part of this season after making just 46 appearances in 2016-17.
"Yeah. But like I said, we just got to go about it the best way we can," Waiters said. "At the end of the day, it needs more strengthening, the little exercises and just getting it strong. Once everything picks up with that, it should be fine."
