Meyers Leonard will be away from the Miami Heat indefinitely after using an anti-Semitic slur on a video game livestream.
The Miami Heat are cooperating with the NBA in their investigation.
“The Miami Heat vehemently condemns the use of any form of hate speech," wrote the franchise in a statement. "The words used by Meyers Leonard were wrong and we will not tolerate hateful language from anyone associated with our franchise. To hear it from a Miami HEAT player is especially disappointing and hurtful to all those who work here, as well as the larger South Florida, Miami HEAT and NBA communities.
