Report: Dion Waiters suspended in part for posting boat picture on Instagram while ‘sick’
The Miami Heat on Thursday suspended Dion Waiters for the third time this season, and we now know in part why he was suspended.
Five Reasons Sports Network’s Ethan J. Skolnick reported on Sunday that the Heat were irked by a photo Waiters posted on Instagram that showed him out on a boat. This photo was posted at a time when Waiters had informed the team he was ill.
Waiters’ Instagram is now private, and the photo is said to no longer be on his account. But this is the latest incident involving him that has upset the team.
Waiters was suspended a game to start the season. Then he was suspended 10 games for having a medical issue on a team flight after taking a THC edible. He was suspended six games on Thursday for a failure to adhere to team policies, violation of team rules, and continued insubordination.
Waiters has not played in a game this season for Miami. He is in the third year of a four-year, $52 million contract.
