Phoenix Suns v Atlanta Hawks

A confusing situation has emerged in South Beach where Miami Heat guard Gerald Green has been taken to hospital in odd circumstances.

Green was hospitalized today after an ambulance and police were called to his Miami condominium.

According to a witness, who spoke to TMZ, Green was “screaming at the top of his lungs” and causing a disturbance when the police arrived, before he was taken to a local hospital.

Combative Patient

Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald is reporting that Miami Fire and Rescue asked for the police’s help because of a “combative patient” at the scene at 10:46 a.m. Green was eventually restrained and put on a stretcher.

The nature of Green’s illness still hasn’t been reported or disclosed. Green’s teammate Mario Chalmers - who lives near Green - was at the scene of the incident and rode with the former Phoenix Suns star in the ambulance.

Police have been quick to confirm that Green has not been arrested. The Heat confirmed they knew about the incident, but remained coy with the details.

It is interesting to note that Green missed Miami's game on Tuesday against the Atlanta Hawks with what the team called an "illness."

This is Green's first season in Miami after they signed him from the Suns over the summer. He's averaging 10.3 points in 21.7 minutes per game in three appearances for his new franchise.
