Josh McRoberts travels with Heat for first time since surgery
The Miami Heat are 32-36, on a three-game winning streak, winners of seven of their last 10 games, and playing without Chris Bosh for the rest the season. Here’s the South Florida Sun Sentinel with an update on Heat forward Josh McRoberts:
For the first-time since undergoing knee surgery in December, forward Josh McRoberts has joined the Miami Heat on a road trip.
McRoberts, who, according to coach Erik Spoelstra, has yet to resume on-court work with the coaching staff, left Saturday with the team for the four-game trip that opens Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
McRoberts, one of Pat Riley’s prime offseason additions last summer in free agency, has been limited to 17 games this season due to a variety of ailments. He has been sidelined since Dec. 10 since a torn right meniscus. He began the season on the team’s inactive list do to an offseason toe issue and later missed time due to a blister on his left foot.
Unlike other teammates who have been sidelined, McRoberts has not joined the Heat on the bench at home games, nor had he traveled with the team until this trip that also includes games against the Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks.
