Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters was fined an undisclosed amount following his comments about his playing time following the team’s game in Milwaukee against the Bucks.
“ F— patience! I want to play. I’ve been patient long enough. What do I got to be patient for? Come on man. I’ve been patient. I think everybody knows that it’s time. What are we waiting for? If I’m out there, play me.”
Waiters is only in the seventh game after returning from an ankle injury that kept him out of action for nearly a year. In his return, he has yet to start and is only averaging 15.4 minutes of action in the five games he’s played.
