Miami Heat wing didn't have Gerald Green available in Tuesday night's loss to the Atlanta Hawks as he was listed as inactive prior to the home game with an "illness." However, it appears to be more serious than just being sick. The Heat released a statement Wednesday afternoon that Green has been admitted to the hospital, which informed the team this morning.
There isn't any further information at this time.
The Miami HEAT has released the following statement on Gerald Green:
“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.”
Green signed a one-year deal with the Heat this past summer, and is averaging 10.3 points in 21.7 minutes. He's made just 32.3 percent of his shots from the field but is shooting 41.2 percent from 3-point range and leads the team with seven made 3-pointers.
The Heat travel to Minnesota for a game Thursday night.
