Here’s the South Florida Sun Sentinel reporting on the Heat:
For the first time since July, the Miami Heat have more than pocket change to spend on personnel.
The NBA has granted the Heat a $2.65 million disabled-player salary-cap exception in the wake of forward Josh McRoberts undergoing knee surgery earlier in the week. The exception is worth half of McRoberts’ 2014-15 salary.
The move means an independent NBA physician has agreed with the Heat’s stance that McRoberts likely will be out for the balance of the season.
Should McRoberts, who has vowed to make the effort, return before the end of the season, the cap exception issued would not be impacted.
The exception must be utilized by March 10.
