Miami Heat guard Rodney McGruder will reportedly have surgery on a stress fracture in his leg and will miss at least three months. Shams Charania of The Vertical reported McGruder could miss up to six months, which would keep him out for most—if not all—of the 2017-18 season. McGruder, 26, was part of the Heat's starting lineup for all five preseason games. He averaged 6.4 points and 3.3 rebounds in 78 games (65 starts) last season. A 2013 undrafted free agent, McGruder landed in Miami last season after stints overseas and in the G-League.
