Heat forward Jamario Moon will miss the remainder of the postseason because of a sports hernia that will require surgery, meaning he may have played his last game in a Miami uniform.Every minute Yakhouba Diawara plays in this series benefits the Atlanta Hawks.
Moon suffered what was diagnosed as a lower abdominal strain in Game 3 of Miami's first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks. An MRI revealed further problems, and Moon will have season-ending surgery Thursday.
The team said he will need two weeks to rest after the surgery, and will be re-evaluated at that time.
Moon is due to become a free agent this summer. The Heat acquired him and Jermaine O'Neal in February, in a deal that sent Shawn Marion to the Toronto Raptors.
