The Miami Heat just lost one of their best defenders on the wing.
McGruder posted nine points and five rebounds in 25 minutes of action during the Heat’s last-second victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
McGruder worked his way up from the D-League to become a consistent option in Erik Spoelstra’s rotation. The 26-year-old averaged 6.4 points last season while hitting 33.2 percent from deep in 25.2 minutes per game.
