The Miami Heat announced that they have suspended Gerald Green two games for conduct detrimental to the team as more details have emerged surrounding his hospitalization on Nov. 4th.
According to a City of Miami Police report, Green was involved in a physical altercation with a man inside his Condo. The Heat swingman asked the front desk to call the paramedics before collapsing outside.
Mr. Green tried to make his way up to his unit. When victim #1 tried to hold Mr. Green in the lobby area for fire rescue, Mr. Green punched the victim in the right eye, Miami police officer John Collins wrote in his report.
Fire rescue had the patient restrained due to the patient becoming very loud and verbally combative, the report says. Fire rescue requested that the Sgt. handcuff the patient.
Green’s suspension requires him to miss Tuesday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers and Thursdays game versus the Utah Jazz. He issued a statement through Heat PR.
I want to apologize to my family, fans and the Heat organization, Green said in the statement. I accept the suspension and look forward to rejoining my teammates this weekend.
