Gerald Green: Miami Heat player was admitted to the hospital, reasons unclear

Gerald Green was taken to the hospital Wednesday, the team announced, though no further details were provided.

The team released a statement saying they were informed of Green’s hospitalization on Wednesday morning, adding, “Right now our concerns are with Gerald.”

Gerald Green, 29, will not travel with the Heat to Minnesota for Thursday night’s game vs. Minnesota.

While the reason for Green’s hospitalization has not been confirmed by authorities, multiple witnesses claim that the player was acting strange, screaming at the top of his lungs in the lobby of the Marquis condominium building on 11th and Biscayne Boulevard.

A valet who works across the street from the Marquis told Local 10 News that he saw about 10 emergency vehicles. He said someone who was covering their face went into an ambulance. He said Mario Chalmers then followed that person into the ambulance.

Green was not with the team during Tuesday’s loss to the Hawks, with the Heat saying the shooting guard was out with an illness.

Through four games this season, Green is averaging 10.3 points per game.

The 8-year NBA veteran scored a season high 19 points in the opening night win over Charlotte.

Green signed a one-year deal with the Heat on July 9.
