Heat forward Justise Winslow returned to the court for the first time in more than a month Sunday afternoon, and played a role in Miami’s 97-79 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Heat also had to play without forward Justise Winslow (strained left knee) and starting point guard Goran Dragic (sore left elbow). Starting shooting guard Dion Waiters will play against the Hawks despite an illness that kept him out of shootaround.
The Heat (13-14) will be without center Hassan Whiteside and forward Justise Winslow on Friday when they face the Hornets in Charlotte. Whiteside (left knee bone bruise) and Winslow (left knee strain) will not make the trip as they recover from their injuries.

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Dion Waiters and Justise Winslow looked good and showed no ill effects from their season-ending injuries last season in their first full practices back with the team Tuesday morning at Florida Atlantic University. “[Winslow has] been scrimmaging for a while. It was important for him to get those live reps. You would never be able to tell by his aggressiveness that he brought to this practice that he was coming off any kind of injury anywhere on his body. People felt his presence.”
Justise Winslow expects to be fully recovered and ready to go for the Sept. 26 start of Heat training camp. He’s already started to participate in full-contact work now that his six-month rehabilitation schedule is complete. “My shoulder is feeling great. I’m 100 percent now,” said Winslow, who is promoting the September youth clinic he will host on behalf of his family’s foundation. “Doing different contact stuff, playing with guys in 3-on-3 [games]. Playing against the other coaches and the trainers and things like that. I feel good. I’m in pretty good shape. I’m feeling lighter and eating better, so I’m excited for this upcoming season.”
Spoelstra said it’s been good having Justise Winslow back on the bench during the Heat’s homestand. The second-year forward, who had season-ending shoulder surgery in early January, had not been on the bench until Wednesday’s win over the Pelicans but had been at practices and around his teammates while rehabbing.

The HEAT announced today that forward Justise Winslow underwent successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. The one hour, 20-minute procedure was performed by HEAT team physician Dr. Harlan Selesnick at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute at Doctors Hospital. He will be in a sling for six weeks before beginning rehab. He is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
Albert Nahmad: Justise Winslow will have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder today, and Heat expects he’ll miss the rest of the season.
Spoelstra began Wednesday’s pregame media session saying, “I’ll start with the bad news, or the tough news, right now.” And it was, especially for a team hoping to groom the versatile forward for better days beyond this now almost assured lottery-bound season. “Justise was checked out by Dr. [Harlan] Selesnick on Monday,” Spoelstra said of the team physician, “found that he has a torn labrum, so we sent him out to get a second opinion. They confirmed it. So that’s going to require surgery. He’s going to have surgery [Thursday].

Manny Navarro: Spo said Justise Winslow still has not gone through a full contact practice. So, until he does that, he’s really not close #Heat
“No,” Spoelstra said when asked if Winslow’s injury is worse than he anticipated. “We didn’t necessarily know, but it’s in a tough area. And playing through it was aggravating it. It definitely was not getting better. So he’s been able to take care of that with rest. It’s still not where he wants it to be. But some areas take a little bit longer. The wrist, there are a lot of moving parts to that.”
Anthony Chiang: Heat announce Dion Waiters & Justise Winslow will not travel with the team on it’s three-game trip and will stay in Miami for treatment.

If that “somewhere else” was OKC, how would the fanbase react considering they are still applying aloe vera to soothe the burns of two summers ago? Newly elected Oklahoma City mayor David Holt is a lifelong Oklahoman. He served as chief of staff under the previous mayor, Mick Cornett. The two played significant roles in bringing professional basketball to The Big Friendly. “I am fully aware how Thunder fans have felt since July 4, 2016, because I feel it, too,” Holt said. “And I think we’ll feel that way forever if the status quo is maintained. Yet all KD would have to say is ‘I choose you,’ and virtually all fans would forgive him.”
Gabe Ikard was an All-American lineman for the Oklahoma Sooners. Now retired from football, the longtime Thunder fan co-hosts Franchise Players for 107.7 The Franchise in Oklahoma City. Those dual titles grant him solid insight on the psyche of the fanbase. “Durant’s departure to the Golden State Warriors resulted in the biggest backlash to a player’s free-agency decision in the history of sports,” Ikard said. “I’m not quite sure he expected that extreme of a reaction. I’m not sure Oklahomans thought that they would react so severely to his decision either. “But,” he added, “no one thought it would be Golden State. I find it hard to believe people that say they would not welcome him back,” Ikard said. “It’s easy to call him a snake and cupcake now. But if he was dropping 40-plus in Thunder blue again, a lot of fans would find forgiveness quickly.”
