Gerald Green Suspended Two Games for Detrimental Conduct
- Updated: November 10, 2015
Miami Heat reserve guard Gerald Green will rejoin his team this week, but must first endure a two-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. Green spent four days in a Miami hospital last week, after it was reported that he had been seen “bleeding” and “unconscious” outside his Miami condo.
The Heat are keeping this one pretty close to the chest, as they’ve released no details on the specifics of the incident. Team officials do, however, state Green is “safe and healthy” and looking forward to getting back on the court.
“I want to apologize to my family, fans and the Heat organization,” Green said in a statement released by the team. “I accept the suspension and look forward to rejoining my teammates this weekend.”
The former Phoenix Suns shooting guard was a key offseason addition for Miami. Thus far, he is averaging 10.3 PPG in three contests backing up Dwyane Wade. Green led the squad in points throughout the preseason and the team believes he’s capable of being a consistently high-scoring sixth man.
Green will lose out on $25,000 while he sits, but he and the Heat just seem to be happy he’s healthy and home. Green is eligible to resume play when Miami takes on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Nov. 17th.
