Heat's Dion Waiters inactive after reported gummies 'overdose' on team flight

Waiters received medical treatment after the plane landed in Los Angeles following the Heat's victory over the Phoenix Suns.

The Heat, through both President Pat Riley and Coach Erik Spoelstra, have had no comment on the matter and Waiters returned with the team to Miami after a 95-80 loss to the Lakers.

Radio station 640 AM reported Friday night that Waiters had some sort of a reaction to gummies.

By this point, the National Basketball Association is in full swing, but Heat guard Dion Waiters has yet to make his season debut. League rules prohibit the use of THC, one of the main compounds in cannabis.

The mother of Waiters, Monique Brown, went to social media on Saturday morning and posted a message on her Instagram story: "Please don't Believe the rumors the media will report fake news to get clicks and likes. smh none of that mess is true!" "He's good. We appreciate it". He is due $24 million this season and next.

According to ESPN, Waiters, 27, will miss out on a $1.2 million bonus if he misses four more games.

The Heat suspended Waiters for the opening game of the campaign due to "unprofessional conduct", then left him back in Miami to work on his conditioning during a two-game road trip.

It is also possible that the Heat keep Waiters on the roster and on the bench, though that does provide a certain amount of distraction that a team like the Heat surely do not want to deal with.
