Udonis Haslem Done for Season after Surgery


Heat forward Udonis Haslem had season-ending surgery to remove a bone spur from his left ankle Friday, becoming the fourth Miami player to be officially shut down for the season because of an injury.

Haslem will be in a walking boot and on crutches before beginning rehabilitation, and the team expects he’ll be able to resume basketball activity in about two months. Haslem, a Miami native and the Heat captain, averaged 12 points and nine rebounds in 49 games this season. [SI.com]
