MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Heat sharpshooter Gerald Green was released from the hospital on Saturday but has yet to return to the team.

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra was asked about Green following Monday’s practice session at the American Airlines Arena

Spoelstra said that he had “no update” on Green’s health status.

“He’s healthy, he’s safe, I mentioned that the other day,” Spoelstra said when asked if he’s personally seen or spoken to Green. “I speak with him daily. There’s no other update.”

Green was taken to the hospital last Wednesday for an undisclosed reason following an incident outside his condo building.

In a 911 call obtained by TMZ, the person calling said that Green was bleeding and had passed out in the valet area outside the building.

It was also reported by TMZ that multiple witnesses said Green was acting strangely and yelling loudly in the condo’s lobby and that it took several people to restrain him in order to put him on a stretcher and into an ambulance.

CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald reported that Miami police said Green was not arrested and that Miami-Dade Fire Rescue asked for assistance due to a “combative patient” at the condo’s address.

The Heat began a seven-game homestand on Sunday with a 96-76 victory over the Toronto Raptors. They will face Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.
