On crutches, Heath attended an offseason practice Thursday led by new coach Josh Pastner. Heath will miss the remainder of the spring workout period and may miss summer workouts, as well. A full recovery is expected.
It’s the second consecutive season that Heath has finished a season with an injury that required surgery. He played all 31 games of the 2014-15 season with a double hernia and averaged 4.3 points and 2.7 assists per game.
