Reports: Miami Heat's Gerald Green Had To Be Restrained, Hospitalized

Heat swingman Gerald Green was hospitalized today after an ambulance and police were called to his Miami condominium. According to witnesses who spoke to TMZ, Green was “screaming at the top of his lungs” and causing a disturbance. He had to be restrained on a stretcher before the ambulance took him to the hospital.

The Miami Herald reported that Miami Fire and Rescue asked for the police’s help because of a “combative patient” at the scene at 10:46 a.m. The nature of Green’s illness still hasn’t been reported. Green’s teammate Mario Chalmers was also there, and rode with him in the ambulance.


Green didn’t play in Tuesday night’s game against the Hawks; the team didn’t have much to say on the matter.
