Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters did not suit up for Friday's game against the Lakers in Los Angeles after experiencing what ESPN reported as a "panic attack" on the team plane after taking a THC-infused edible. According to the report, published Saturday night, Waiters received medical treatment upon the plane's landing in Los Angeles and did not attend the game. He was listed as out due to illness.

Radio station 640 AM reported Friday night that Waiters had some sort of a reaction to gummies. The ESPN report stated that Waiters sat out Thursday's game in Phoenix with a stomachache and that he turned to the edible looking for relief, but was not familiar with the edible.

The NBA prohibits the use of THC. ESPN also reported that Waiters returned with the team to Miami on Saturday. Already struggling to break into the rotation, Waiters has yet to actually suit up for a game and, according to ESPN, could lose out on a $1.2 million contract bonus should he miss four more games this season.
