It’s early in the season but Dion Waiters has had a tumultuous two weeks with the team.
Over the weekend Waiters, who was previously suspended by the team during the preseason for conduct detrimental to the team, reportedly had a medical emergency on the team plane that involved “gummies”.
While it was initially reported as an “overdose” Waiters’ medical emergency was later revealed to be a “panic attack” due to consuming a THC edible.
Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters experienced a “panic attack” on the team’s charter flight Thursday night after consuming a THC-infused edible, sources told ESPN.
Waiters received medical treatment after the plane landed in Los Angeles following the Heat’s victory over the Phoenix Suns. Waiters was listed as out for Friday’s game against the Lakers because of illness and did not attend the game.
Waiters has now been suspended 10 games by the Heat over the incident.
Apparently, the team believes Waiters was given the gummy by a teammate but he refuses to snitch.
Update: Here’s the Heat statement on Waiters.
