SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Justise Winslow of the Heat will have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder today, and the team expects he will miss the remainder of the season.
Winslow was hurt in the final minute of Miami's loss Friday in Boston when he got tangled up with Celtics center Al Horford. The injury was originally diagnosed as a stinger, and even Winslow said earlier this week that he wasn't worried.
Winslow immediately began grabbing at the shoulder after he and Horford made contact while anticipating a rebound. Winslow was called for a foul on the play.
Further tests after the team returned to Miami revealed the tear, which the Heat announced Wednesday.
"I really feel for him because I know how much time he put in this summer," said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. "He's put in as much time as anybody."
Winslow missed 16 games this season with a sore left wrist. The second-year forward out of Duke is averaging 10.9 points on 35 percent shooting this season.
