Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra commented on reserve guard Gerald Green’s status, he “is safe and is healthy,” just one day after the player was hospitalized. The reason is still unknown.

The Heat’s coach declined to give more information about the player’s condition Thursday night before the team’s 96-84 victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves. However, teammates Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade said they contacted Green to offer the player their support.

“Obviously our minds are on Gerald right now,” Spoelstra said. “We’re grateful that he’s safe and he’s healthy right now. Our thoughts are with him and his family.”

Green wasn’t able to play in the Heat’s loss to Atlanta on Tuesday, because of the unknown illness. The player was hospitalized the next morning, but the reason and how long he will stay there is still unclear.

Green talked to Wade on Thursday and told him “he was doing better.”

“Whenever a teammate is sick or there’s an illness, we all reach out,” Wade said. “That’s just what we do. Whenever something happens in one of our teammates or family’s lives, we all reach out. That’s a part of this basketball family that we’re all in.”

According to witnesses, a 911 call was made reporting Green had passed out and was bleeding outside the condo where he was staying. The player was also acting strangely in the lobby of the condo, and emergency staff was needed to get him on a stretcher and into an ambulance.
