Dion Waiters has publicly taken responsibility for the state of his season in which he has been suspended three separate times by the Miami Heat.
Waiters didn't address any of the incidents specifically.
“I’m a grown man. I don’t point fingers. I’m could easily say this and that, but at the end of the day, it’s me,” Waiters said. “I made immature decisions. So, you know, I take full responsibility.”
Waiters made his season debut on Friday and could play significant minutes this week with the Heat experiencing multiple injuries to perimeter players.
“There’s so many moving parts right now,” Erik Spoelstra said. “You just want everybody to put in the time behind the scenes and get into a healthy head space where you can contribute when your number is called and he did that. He still has a ways to go with his conditioning, particularly game conditioning. That’s to be expected. But he’s a gamer.”
