Gerald Green made his return to the court following a six-game absence in Tuesday's loss to the Timberwolves. He played 12 minutes and scored two points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) to go along with four rebounds and an assist.
Green, who missed four games while hospitalized with an undisclosed medical issue and then missed another two due to a team-imposed suspension, found himself with a smaller role off the bench Tuesday than he previously enjoyed, as Tyler Johnson seems to have surpassed him on the depth chart. It's not out of the question for Green to reemerge as the Miami Heat 's top scoring threat on their second unit, but it may take a few quality shooting performances over lower-minute appearances before he fully regains the trust of coach Erik Spoelstra.
Gerald Green (suspension) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
After rejoining the Miami Heat for practice Friday following a hospitalization that cost him four games and a subsequent suspension that resulted in a two-game ban, Green seems to have made amends with the team and coach Erik Spoelstra. He'll have to adjust to life on a second unit that no longer includes Mario Chalmers, who was traded to Memphis last week, but Green's ability to provide an offensive spark off the bench is a quality the Heat sorely need. The extensive time Green missed, however, may force him to settle for light minutes initially, as Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Justise Winslow, and Tyler Johnson appear to rank ahead of Green in Spoelstra's perimeter rotation.
Gerald Green has been suspended two games by the Miami Heat , Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Green was only recently released from a Miami area hospital, where he spent last Wednesday through Saturday. A reason hasn't been released for the absence, but the Heat have clearly deemed the incident worthy of discipline. After sitting out Tuesday against the Lakers and Thursday versus the Jazz, Green will be eligible to return next Tuesday against the Timberwolves.
Gerald Green (undisclosed) has been listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Green has not played since being admitted to a Miami hospital for undisclosed reasons. It's still unclear how long he will be out, so for the time being he should be considered day to day. Looking forward, his next opportunity to play will be Thursday against Utah.
The Miami Heat are yet to provide an update on Gerald Green (undisclosed), but coach Eric Spoelstra said he has been in regular contact with the veteran, Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel reports.
Green was admitted to a Miami area hospital last week and has been away from the team ever since. While outlets like TMZ have reported that Green was acting strangely prior to being admitted to the hospital, the Heat have not corroborated any reports, and it's still unclear exactly what happened. At this rate, Miami is unlikely to go pubic with any details, so Green should continue to be considered day-to-day.
