MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Heat announced Tuesday evening they have suspended Gerald Green for two games for conduct detrimental to the team.
Green’s suspension started immediately and will miss Tuesday’s game against the Lakers and Thursday’s game versus Utah. He will rejoin the team on Friday.
“I want to apologize to my family, fans and the Heat organization,” said Green. “I accept the suspension and look forward to rejoining my teammates this weekend.”
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.
