"Please don't believe the rumors the media will report fake news to get clicks and likes", Waiters' mom, Monique Brown, wrote on Instagram Saturday following news the Heat player had a seizure on the team plane Thursday after eating too many sweets.
Luckily for the Heat, both Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro, who have seen an increase in playing time during Waiters's absence, are having impressive starts to the season. They have suspended Waiters during the first games of the season due to his comments on social media regarding his diminishing role with the Heat. He has been on the active list for only two of the Heat's nine games thus far but has yet to dress and sit on the bench for a game. Waiters is owed $24 million over this season and next as part of a deal he signed with the Heat in 2017. He's also set to lose $1.2 million in bonuses if he misses four more games this season.
