Dion Waiters will undergo season-ending surgery on his injured left ankle.
Waiters received second opinions in Los Angeles to finalize his decision.
Waiters decided not to undergo surgery last offseason when he was a free agent. Waiters re-signed with Miami on a four-year, $52 million contract.
Waiters averaged 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 30.6 minutes over 30 games this season for Miami.
