According to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, one of Miami’s pivotal role players, Udonis Haslem, played through the second half of the season, including 22 postseason games, with a torn meniscus. The 9-year NBA veteran will undergo surgery to repair it this summer.
Heat forward Udonis Haslem played through much of the second half of Miami’s season with a torn right meniscus, and told The Associated Press that surgery will be required to repair the previously undisclosed injury.
Haslem made the revelation Saturday after a promotional appearance where hundreds of Heat fans began lining up to see the Miami native five hours before he arrived. Surgery will occur soon, he said, and Haslem expects to be ready for training camp this fall.
