Heat's Napier out for regular season after surgery

MIAMI -- The Heat announced Wednesday afternoon that rookie guard Shabazz Napier will miss the remainder of the regular season after undergoing successful sports hernia surgery. Napier could return at some point this season if the team reaches the playoffs. He is likely out for at least four to six weeks. Napier had been sidelined the past two games with what the team termed as a "hip" injury. A first-round draft pick, he averaged 5.1 points and 2.5 assists in 51 games. Napier, who made 10 starts, had his best stretch when he scored in double figures in six straight games in mid-November. (c)2015 Sun Sentinel (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)
