Heat guard Dion Waiters suffered panic attack

Houston Rockets v Miami Heat

The eighth-year player has either been listed as out with illness or a healthy scratch in every other game this season.

Dion Waiters' name is trending on Twitter and the reaction is all over the place as expected.

Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters is back in Miami after a medical incident on the team's charter flight to Los Angeles from Phoenix.

The Heat didn't offer official comment on either report.

Heat guard Dion Waiters had panic attack after consuming edible, sources say
Waiters is owed $24 million over this season and next as part of a deal he signed with the Heat in 2017. Therefore, many are led to believe that James no longer holds the title as the NBA's best player.

Sources told Miami radio host Andy Slater that Waiters had a medical emergency on the team's plane flying from Phoenix to L.A. on Thursday night, and had a seizure after he "overdosed on 'gummies.'". He allegedly had a seizure when he woke up.

It was not clear whether the reference was to cannabis, which is widely available in Denver, where the Heat began their three-game trip Tuesday with a loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Neither Waiters nor the team had confirmed the report as of late Friday. Waiters did not play against the Suns, with the team saying he had a stomach ache.

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. Waiters watched as Miami fell to the Lakers 95-80 at Staples Center. "Coming off injury & not feeling like myself nor looking like myself I was in a dark place mentally & physically, Because the game I love so much was taken away due to season ending surgery", Waiters posted in July. With the emergence of rookies Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro the Heat have not really needed Waiters on the court, and if he misses four more games he will not get a $1.2 million performance bonus that is part of his contract.
