Heat G Mario Chalmers has arthroscopic knee surgery
Chalmers is expected to be ready for training camp after having the 20-minute procedure to repair an inflamed plica in his right knee. The Heat said Chalmers would begin rehabbing immediately.
This season, his seventh in the NBA and with the Heat, Chalmers averaged a career-high 10.2 points with 3.8 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game. He appeared in 80 games and started 37 for the Heat, who finished 37–45 and missed the playoffs for the first time in seven years.
Chalmers, 29, will make $4.3 million next season, the last on the contract he signed last July.
Over 519 career games, Chalmers has averaged 8.9 points, 3.8 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game.
