Sources tell ESPN that Waiters suffered a panic attack after consuming potent THC-infused edible gummies for the team's flight before Friday's game.

Waiters received medical treatment after the plane landed in Los Angeles following the Heat's victory over the Phoenix Suns.

Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters has yet to play in a game this season for a variety of reasons, but his latest absence might be the strangest reason yet.

The Indian Meteorological Department said wall cloud region was entering into land at 10:30pm local time. Indian authorities said military ships and planes have been put on standby to assist with emergencies.


Radio station 640 AM reported Friday night that Waiters had some sort of a reaction to gummies.

The next game Waiters, 27, will be eligible to play in following the suspension will be the Heat's road matchup against the Nets on December 1.

The league bans THC, and the Heat declined to comment on the incident. Along with entering the marijuana program, a first violation comes with no additional penalty, a second violation comes with a $25,000 fine and a third violation comes with a five-game suspension. Multiple reports have indicated that Waiters holds practically no value in the NBA's trade market.

Waiters is subject to lose out on a $1.2 million contract bonus if he misses another four games with the Heat this season. He signed a $52M contract extension in 2017.

Waiters has had a tough month battling his way back to game shape after the Heat concluded that he hadn't met their conditioning requirements for playing time in the regular season.
