Dec 27, 2022 5:55 PM

Scoot Henderson hasn't played in a game since November 18th after spending three weeks in concussion protocol following a nasal fracture. Henderson missed the G League Winter Showcase, which is one of the most widely attended events for NBA decision-makers.

Some executives indicated they would be surprised if Henderson plays in another game this season considering he's all but assured of being a top-3 pick.

But G League Ignite officials show down that thinking and insist he will play again soon.

The Miami Heat have waived Two-Way guard Dru Smith. Miami replaced Smith by signing center Orlando Robinson to a Two-Way deal.

Smith started the season on a Two-Way deal with the Heat. He was waived in mid-November, when a need in the frontcourt necessitated signing Robinson. Miami then waived Robinson in late-November and re-signed Smith.

Robinson, as noted above, is in his second Two-Way stint with the Heat. Robinson, like Smith, has spent time with the Sioux Falls Skyforce in the G League this season, in between stints with Miami.
