Waiters did not suit up for Fridays game in LA after experiencing what ESPN reported as a panic attack on the team plane after taking a THC-infused edible
Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters did not suit up for Fridays game against the Lakers in Los Angeles after experiencing what ESPN reported as a panic attack on the team plane after taking a THC-infused edible.
According to the report, published Saturday night, Waiters received medical treatment upon the planes landing in Los Angeles and did not attend the game. He was listed as out due to illness.
Radio station 640 AM reported Friday night that Waiters had some sort of a reaction to gummies.
The ESPN report stated that Waiters sat out Thursdays game in Phoenix with a stomachache, and that he turned to the edible looking for relief, but was not familiar with the edible.
The NBA prohibits use of THC.
ESPN also reported that Waiters returned with the team to Miami on Saturday. Already struggling to break into the rotation, Waiters has yet to actually suit up for a game and, according to ESPN, could lose out on a $1.2m contract bonus should he miss four more games this season.
On Sunday, the Heat announced a 10-game suspension without pay for Waiters for conduct detrimental to the team stemming from the incident.
We are very disappointed in Dions actions this season that include the very scary situation on Thursday night, and grateful that the outcome wasnt worse, the team said in a statement.
The suspension is Waiters second of the season. He was also barred from Miamis season opener after expressing frustration on social media regarding his role on the team.

Driver rushing to see girlfriend jailed over crash
A driver who killed a pedestrian as he rushed to get home to pick up his girlfriend before going on a night out has been jailed.
Ben Jobling crashed while carrying out an illegal overtaking manoeuvre as he drove at 50mph in a 30mph street.
Martin Rogers, 31, was pronounced dead at the scene in Smannell Road in Andover, Hampshire, in February 2018.
Jobling, 20, was jailed for two-and-half-years after being found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.
Mr Rogers was with friends when he was hit by Jobling’s Vauxhall Corsa at 17:10 GMT on 25 February.
There was “no evidence of braking at all”, prosecutors said during Jobling’s trial at Winchester Crown Court.
During his journey he had overtaken “slow” vehicles, even doing so on a pedestrian crossing just moments before the crash.
Mr Rogers was probably “drowsy and disorientated” from a “cocktail of drugs” when he entered the road near Icknield Way, the jury was told.
‘Moment of madness’
The court heard he had taken cannabis, cocaine, diazepam, methadone and morphine.
Jobling, of Romney Road in Andover, admitted speeding and illegally overtaking but claimed Mr Rogers ran into the road.
He pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving, but was convicted of the more serious charge after a trial.
Jobling was also disqualified from driving for three years and three months when he was sentenced at Salisbury Crown Court earlier.
Sgt Mark Furse, from Hampshire Constabulary, said: “This was a death that could easily have been avoided. Being in a rush is absolutely no excuse to drive dangerously and at excessive speeds.
“One moment of madness has had a lifelong impact on two families, one of whom will never get to see their loved one again in the case of Mr Rogers’ family.”
Former Amazon Mexico CEO suspected in wife’s murder
The former CEO of Amazon Mexico is suspected of arranging his wife’s murder while engaged in a gritty divorce battle, according to the New York Post.
Juan Carlos García is wanted by the authorities for questioning after his estranged spouse Abril Pérez Sagaón was shot to death by a motorcyclist in front of the couple’s two teenage children in Mexico City.
According to a report by El Pais, she was shot in the head and neck.
Perez, a mother of three, was in Mexico City for a court hearing regarding custody of their children and was headed to the airport before being ambushed in her car.
According to the BBC, Garcia was taken into custody this January after Perez, who had a restraining order against her husband, accused Garcia of attempted murder, saying he attacked her while she was asleep with a baseball bat.
Garcia was released last month after 10 months in pretrial detention and the judge downgraded the charge to domestic violence.
Garcia, who left Amazon Mexico three years ago, is the main suspect although no charges have been filed.
Perez’s family believes her husband arranged the assassination.
