Heat wing Max Strus injured, out with knee sprain

Here’s the Miami Herald with some relatively good news on a Heat injury that could have been a lot worse:

The level of anxiety was high for Miami Heat wing Max Strus during the weekend, but the feeling Monday was one of relief.

After exiting the court late in Saturday’s win over the Memphis Grizzlies following an awkward landing on a dunk attempt, an MRI on Strus’ left knee returned negative and he was diagnosed with a sprained left knee.

Strus, 25, won’t play in the Heat’s road game against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday (7:30 p.m., TNT) and expects to miss at least “a couple weeks. But he avoided the worst possible outcome after tearing the ACL in his left knee less than two years ago in December 2019.
