The Miami Heat haven’t been pleased with the attitude of guard Dion Waiters this season, and in early November gave him a 10-game suspension.
According to the Miami Herald, “Waiters, who has yet to play or even appear on the bench since the regular season began, was also suspended by the Heat for the first game of the season for what the team called unprofessional conduct. The National Basketball Players Association recently filed an appeal of Waiters’ two team-issued suspensions, a league source confirmed last week. The appeal is over wages lost, with both suspensions costing Waiters about $913,000 in salary.”
The suspension, after Sunday’s matchup later today against the Warriors, will have ended. It’ll be interesting to see if Waiters actually is in the Heat plans going forward. Right now it seems like anything is possible, but with the Heat off to a fantastic 12-5 start to the season, it makes sense for them to keep their current rotation as is, for both on-court basketball performance as well as general attitude reasons.
