What happened to Terry Rozier?

Rozier has been out of action since April 7 due to a neck injury, described as a 'spasm' on the official NBA injury report that teams must submit. The 30-year-old guard moved to the Heat in January, and although his absence has frustrated fans, there was initial optimism following his debut. In his first game against the Grizzlies, Rozier contributed 9 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals.

Terry Rozier exited the game against the Boston Celtics on Feb. 11 during the third quarter following a collision with Boston's forwards, Jayson Tatum and Al Horford, which led to a right knee injury.

The incident occurred as Rozier fell in a crowded paint area, packed with Miami Heat and Boston Celtics players, preventing a safe landing and causing his knee to land awkwardly. Rozier stayed down on the court after the fall, and it wasn't until the team's medical staff arrived that he was assisted off the floor and taken to the locker room for further evaluation.
