Stauskas, 28, is 6-foot-6 and actually had a deal in place to join the Raptors earlier this month, but the deal fell through after Stauskas failed the COVID screening process.
He had been playing for the Grand Rapids Gold of the G League, the Nuggets’ affiliate. In 12 games with Grand Rapids, Stauskas is averaging 21.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists.
Miami had a whopping 12 players unavailable for their game Wednesday vs. the Spurs, causing the game to be postponed.
The well-traveled Stauskas has also played for the Cavaliers, Trail Blazers, Nets, 76ers and Kings.
