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

Houston Rockets v Miami Heat

The Heat lost on Friday night to the Lakers, and Waiters did not play due to illness.

According to ESPN, which cited sources, Waiters was suffering from a stomach ache and seeking relief when he ingested the unfamiliar substance after the team's victory over the Phoenix Suns.

Dion Waiters' mother posted on Instagram Saturday morning to dismiss a report about her son's health.

Waiters, meanwhile, has been quiet so far about the allegations made by Miami radio host Andy Slater.

The league bans THC, and the Heat declined to comment on the incident.


Luckily for the Heat, both Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro, who have seen an increase in playing time during Waiters's absence, are having impressive starts to the season.

The Heat suspended Waiters for their season opener last month for "conduct detrimental to the team" after he expressed frustration about his role on the team on social media. He has only been active for two of the Heat's nine games this season but has yet to dress for any game.

Following the 2019-20 season, Waiters will have one more season on his current contract with the Heat.

It is also possible that the Heat keep Waiters on the roster and on the bench, though that does provide a certain amount of distraction that a team like the Heat surely do not want to deal with.
