Heat guard Gerald Green was hospitalized for undisclosed reasons on Wednesday after an incident in which police were summoned to his residence after missing Tuesday’s 98-92 home loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
“This morning we were informed that Gerald Green was admitted into the hospital. Right now our concerns are with Gerald and we have no further comment at this time,” the Heat said in a statement.
Green, 29, will not travel with team for Thursday’s game at Minnesota.
In his first season with Miami after signing a one-year deal in July, Green is off to a fair start, shooting 41.2% on three-pointers but just 32.2% from the field while averaging 10.3 points in three starts.
Last season, Heat forward Chris Bosh was hospitalized in February with a life-threatening pulmonary embolism and missed the remainder of the season. But he recovered and has shown no effects from the condition.
