Miami Heat Player Restrained, Hospitalized Under Mysterious Circumstances After Screaming Incident at Condo

Miami Heat basketball player Gerald Green had to be restrained and was hospitalized under mysterious circumstances on Wednesday morning following an outburst at his condo where he was reportedly making a huge commotion by “screaming a the top of his lungs” in the lobby.

Witnesses told TMZ that Green “that there was a huge commotion and it took several people–including emergency personnel–to restrain Green and get him on a stretcher and into an ambulance.”

Green did not play in the Heat’s Tuesday night game against the Atlanta Hawks due to an “undisclosed illness,” and his teammate Mario Chalmers reportedly tried to help Green at his condo and eventually got into the ambulance with him.

“This morning we were informed that Gerald Green was admitted into the hospital,” the Heat said in a statement. “Right now our concerns are with Gerald and we have no further comment at this time.”

According to the Miami Herald, Green was not arrested but “Miami Fire and Rescue requested assistance because of a ‘combative patient'” at Green’s address.

The Herald notes thatGreen has never been suspended by the NBA for an off-court incident, and there is nothing documented in his past to suggest anything related to mental illness.” But in the preseason, the NBA fined him $25,000 for making “menacing gestures in an exhibition game.” According to an ESPN report, during a preseason game against the Washington Wizards, Green, who scored 28 points, “appeared to make gun and throat-slash gestures” after each of his made baskets.

“This morning we were informed that Gerald Green was admitted into the hospital,” the Heat said in a statement. “Right now our concerns are with Gerald and we have no further comment at this time.”

Miami plays at Minnesota on Thursday evening.
