Miami Heat fans can breathe a sigh of relief after this Rozier update.
Miami Heat guard Terry Rozier suffered a sprained right knee against the Boston Celtics on Sunday and is going to be listed week-to-week after his MRI results showed no major injury, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
This is certainly good news for Rozier and the Heat, as things did not look good at first. After driving to the rim for a lay-up attempt over Al Horford, Rozier fell hard to the ground as his right knee collapsed under him. The Heat guard immediate grabbed at his knee in pain and was eventually helped off the court and to the locker room.
Rozier, 29, was recently acquired by the Heat from the Charlotte Hornets a few weeks prior to the NBA trade deadline in exchange for a package that involved veteran guard Kyle Lowry. In his short time with the Heat, Rozier has averaged 12.6 points and 5.6 assists per game while shooting 35.9 percent from the floor.
More details to come shortly.
