Update: Udrih will require three months to recover from surgery to repair a torn plantar plate in his right foot.
Analysis: Barring a miracle run by the Heat in the postseason where the team stays alive through mid-June, it looks like Udrih will be done for the season. His absence represents a huge hit to the Heat's depth in the backcourt, as Tyler Johnson (shoulder) looks to be out for the rest of the regular season as well, leaving unnatural point guards in Josh Richardson and Dwyane Wade as the primary ball handlers behind starter Goran Dragic. With Udrih's contract set to become a free agent this summer, it's possible the Heat could opt to release him to open up a roster spot for another point guard.
Udrih was waived Monday by the Miami Heat, a move that could help the team get back under the luxury-tax threshold.
Udrih had surgery to repair a foot injury last week, and is expected to need three months to recover. If he is claimed by another team by Wednesday, the Heat would have the flexibility to add another player in the coming days and still remain below the tax line. If Udrih is unclaimed, a buyout would likely take effect.
