Dion Waiters suffered a panic attack on the Miami Heat charter plane after consuming a THC-infused edible, league sources told Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

As far as official injury reports go, the Heat listed Waiters as out with a stomachache ahead of their Thursday night game, before the team flight, and as out with an illness last night.

The league bans THC, and the Heat declined to comment on the incident.

Waiters was suspended earlier in the season for "conduct detrimental to the team" and has yet to play in a game for Miami this season. "He's good. We appreciate it".

Waiters, 27, was benched Friday in the Heat's game against the Lakers due to an "illness". With the emergence of rookies Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro the Heat have not really needed Waiters on the court, and if he misses four more games he will not get a $1.2 million performance bonus that is part of his contract.

This summer, Waiters spoke about being "in a dark place" amid criticism a year ago over weight and conditioning issues as he returned from an injury.

When Spoelstra was asked after the game about the "gummies" report he walked away and said no comment.

"Now a days with this social media ran world they laughed at me made jokes etc not knowing what I was battling or going through everyday". "He had a seizure when he was finally woken up, I'm told".

Waiters was selected No. 4 overall in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers after two seasons at Syracuse University. Although his numbers of slightly dipped, Waiters was known as an effective scorer and dropped major buckets for the Heat in preseason lay.
