The guard became ill on the team plane while flying from Phoenix to Los Angeles, and suffered a seizure, according to Miami radio host Andy Slater. Waiters was listed as out for Friday's game against the Lakers due to illness and did not attend the game. "If not, I'm playing", James told ESPN as he knocked on the wooden façade of his locker after the Lakers' 95-80 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night.
After the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat on Friday at Staples Center, LeBron James and Anthony Davis shared a amusing moment in the locker room. This list of the top 10 players in the National Basketball Association took many important factors into consideration, in hopes to deliver the most accurate analyzation of who the greatest players in the game truly are.
Waiters was not with the team at Staples Center for Friday night's game, and has yet to be on the bench for a game this season, after being suspended for the October 23 season-opening victory over the Memphis Grizzlies at AmericanAirlines Arena due to what the Heat determined to be conduct detrimental to the team.
There's still a lot of games left to be played, but so far, the Purple and Gold look like the team to beat in the National Basketball Association.
Heat officials told NBC Sports after the game they would not comment on Waiters, his health or status with the team. He missed part of the preseason for personal reasons, and has only been active for two games so far.
While James is healthier than his L.A. counterpart, he did miss 17 games last season due to a groin injury and recently said that it was still "partially torn" when he returned to play. Even when I was shooting the movie, I know what was most important. "Coming off injury & not feeling like myself nor looking like myself I was in a dark place mentally & physically, Because the game I love so much was taken away due to season ending surgery", Waiters posted in July.
