Waiters missed the game in Phoenix because of a stomach ache and was seeking relief when he took the edible that he was unfamiliar with, sources said.
The Heat suspended Waiters for their season opener last month for “conduct detrimental to the team” after he expressed frustration about his role on the team on social media. 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.
