Dion Waiters Reportedly 'Overdosed' on Gummies on Team Plane, Misses Heat Game

He received medical treatment after the plane landed in Los Angeles and did not attend Friday's game against the Lakers due to illness. This bodes as bad news for Waiters, who was a talented shooting guard and an NBA All-Rookie First Team selection in 2013.

Waiters missed the game in Phoenix because of a stomachache and was seeking relief when he took an edible he was unfamiliar with, sources said.

The Heat haven't offered much clarification to set the record straight.

This latest debacle only adds to the already-established tension that has been in place between the disgruntled guard and the Heat.

Australia vs Pakistan: Finch, Warner, seamers script 10-wicket win
The teams will now flip their interest to two Exam matches, the initial of which begins in Brisbane on November 21. Warner had 48 runs from 35 deliveries as Australia scored 109 without loss in 11.5 overs.


Waiters has had a tough month battling his way back to game shape after the Heat concluded that he hadn't met their conditioning requirements for playing time in the regular season.

Waiters, 27, missed part of the preseason for personal reasons and was suspended for the Heat's season opener for "conduct detrimental to the team".

Waiters is in Year 3 of the four-year, $52-million contract he signed in 2017 and can earn an additional bonus of $1.1 million if he appears in at least 70 games this year. If the league does slap him with a multiple-game suspension for his actions, he can kiss his money goodbye. The possibility of him not having a team by the end of this season becomes ever the more possible.
