The Miami Heat have suspended guard Dion Waiters for 10 games without pay for conduct detrimental to the team.

While the team announced the suspension on Sunday, it officially began with the Heat’s November 8 game against the Los Angeles Lakers and will conclude following the November 29th home game against the Golden State Warriors.

"We are very disappointed in Dion's actions this season that include the very scary situation on Thursday night, and grateful that the outcome wasn't worse," the team said in a statement.

Waiters reportedly ate THC-infused edibles on the team plane which resulted in a medical emergency. Initially it was reported that the 27-year old overdosed and had a seizure while other reports indicated he suffered a panic attack.

THC is a chemical compound responsible for the intoxicating effects of cannabis.

It is believed by the team that another player gave Waiters the “gummy” that triggered the episode however, Waiters has refused to divulge who it was that gave it to him.

This is the second time that the team has issued Waiters a suspension this season. He was also suspended for the Heat’s season opening game due to his conduct over the preseason. Even though that suspension elapsed he has still yet to appear in a game this campaign.

With the latest suspension, Waiters will not meet the criteria in his contract for a substantial bonus. Had he appeared in 70 games this season, he would have received a $1.2 million bonus on top of this $12.1 million base salary. At most, he can only appear in a maximum of 64 games at this point.

It would be no surprised if the Heat move on from Waiters prior to the trade deadline. He currently is in the third year of a four-year agreement worth $52 million.
