Heat Granted Injury Exception for Justise Winslow

The Miami Heat have been granted an Injury Exception for Justise Winslow. The forward will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.

The injury exception effectively gives the Heat some extra cap space to sign an additional player. However, Miami would still need to clear a roster spot which does not seem likely at this point:

The injury exception is not of much use to Miami. They are not likely to contend for a playoff spot. Instead, they may be better suited for a tanking job to ensure a high pick and get on their way to Pat Riley’s quick rebuild.

Where the exception could help is in signing a young prospect from the D-League. Considering the career path of Hassan Whiteside, the Heat should have an understanding of the potential of giving young players a chance in the NBA.

Regardless, this would require the Heat to like a prospect more than anyone they have on their current roster or to make some trades. The injury exception for Justise Winslow gives them the flexibility for such a thing but it does not seem like a likely course of action.
