MIAMI — The Miami Heat may be without forward Josh McRoberts for the remainder of the season, after tests Monday revealed a torn right meniscus that will require surgery.

The Heat also say Chris Bosh will miss Tuesday's game at Brooklyn with a strained calf, and Dwyane Wade may also miss the Nets game because of illness.

Bosh leads Miami with averages of 21.6 points and 8.2 rebounds. Wade is averaging 21.1 points. McRoberts averaged 4.2 points in 17 games, after also missing time with a toe injury.

Also Monday, the Heat recalled guard Shabazz Napier and center Hassan Whiteside from the Sioux Falls Skyforce from the NBA Development League.

Because of injuries to nine players already, Miami has used 10 starting lineups through its first 24 games.
