Heal to retire, play off bench this season
The 38-year-old superstar, who has bravely played through a painful back injury for the past month, has asked coaching staff to play from the bench for the remaining three games of the season, before calling it quits.According to writer Daniel Meers:
In a changing of the guard, rising star Daniel Joyce will start, with Heal to be injected as an impact player during the game.
Joyce has played a starring role in two Blaze wins and had his highest scoring year in the NBL.
Many regard him as the best defender in the side.
