As far as official injury reports go, the Heat listed Waiters as out with a stomachache ahead of their Thursday night game, before the team flight, and as out with an illness last night.
The Miami Heat have gone into lockdown when it comes to the status of guard Dion Waiters. He has been active in two games during the regular season, but remained away from the team bench in both situations.
There is financial incentive for Waiters to get back on the court as soon as possible, there's a bonus in his contract for playing in 70 games. He's missed a total of nine games this year following a suspension.

Beyond that, there are just questions, ones the Heat have yet to address.
He is the only person with that specific report. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel confirmed that Waiters did have a medical emergency on the plane and first responders met the Heat charter when it landed in Los Angeles, but he did not have other details.
Andy Slater of Miami radio station 640 AM had the original report of an incident at the end of the flight and reported that Waiters suffered seizures after taking the gummies.More news: US captain Tiger Woods chooses Woods to play in Presidents Cup
Waiters was not with the team at Staples Center for Friday night's game, and has yet to be on the bench for a game this season, after being suspended for the October 23 season-opening victory over the Memphis Grizzlies at AmericanAirlines Arena due to what the Heat determined to be conduct detrimental to the team.
The Heat haven't offered much clarification to set the record straight.
Waiters is in the third season of a four-year, $52 million contract with the Heat. Waiters is owed $24 million over this season and next as part of a deal he signed with the Heat in 2017. There is not going to be a lot of demand for his services right now.More news: TI Goes to Gynecologist With Daughter to 'Check Her Hymen'
