Josh McRoberts is back on the Miami Heat’s injury list with a stress fracture in his left foot – the same foot he broke in Game 6 versus Toronto in last year’s playoffs – and it’s unclear when or if he’ll be back this season. “J-Mac is out and he’ll be out indefinitely,” coach Erik Spoelstra announced Tuesday morning. “Once we get a plan of action and when there’s another update, we’ll give it to you. I feel for Josh right now. He wants to be out there. He was starting to get into a great rhythm. We’ll use all of our resources to come up with a solution for him.”
Storyline: Josh McRoberts Injury
McRoberts, who is in the third year of a four-year, $22.6 million deal with the Heat that includes a $6 million player option next season, said he doesn’t think the injury is career-threatening and believes he will be back this season. Before this latest setback, McRoberts had started 14 consecutive games and was finally beginning to become a more reliable option over the past month. Knee injuries forced him to miss 88 games combined over his first two seasons with the tea before he broke his foot in the playoffs.
