MIAMI (AP) -- Da'Sean Butler and Patrick Beverley have been waived by the Miami Heat.

Monday's moves thwarted Butler's bid to make the Heat roster while recovering from a serious knee injury.

Miami's roster is now down to the NBA maximum of 15.

Butler tore a knee ligament while playing for West Virginia in last season's NCAA Final Four and has not yet been cleared for full play.

Beverley was bidding to be the team's third point guard behind Carlos Arroyo and Mario Chalmers.
