Heat guard Gerald Green reportedly discharged from hospital
The Miami Herald reported that Miami-Dade Fire and Rescue requested assistance at a condo near the Heat’s arena due to a “combative patient.” According to the 911 call recording, Green was bleeding and passed out. The Herald also reported that Heat point guard Mario Chalmers, who lives in the same condo building as Green, went to see his teammate at the hospital.
Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said Thursday “the only comment we’ll make other than what we made yesterday is that we’re grateful that he’s safe and healthy right now. Our thoughts are with him and his family.”
Green hasn’t played since Miami’s comeback 109–89 win against the Houston Rockets on Nov. 1 and it is unclear when he will return to the team. He missed the Heat’s 98–92 loss against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday with what the team announced as an “illness.” The eight-year veteran is averaging 10.3 points in three games this season, his first with the team.
Miami hosts Toronto on Sunday.
