The Clippers have claimed guard Rodney McGruder off waivers, although he won’t be eligible to play for Los Angeles in the postseason.     

McGruder averaged 7.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 66 games for the Miami Heat this season. He’s been with them for three seasons.     

The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder previously played two seasons in the G League with the Maine Red Claws and Sioux Falls Skyforce. McGruder played four seasons at Kansas State.     

The Clippers announced the move Tuesday, two days after they waived forward Luc Mbah a Moute.     

He only played four games this season because of a sore left knee that required surgery late last month.   

The 11-year veteran has career averages of 6.4 points and 4.1 rebounds.
