Miami Heat guard Gerald Green was reportedly rushed to a hospital after an incident inside his Miami condo which needed the assistance of medical personnel and even the police.

An initial Miami Herald report mentioned that the reason for Green's hospitalization was still undisclosed though it noted that authorities were called to his residence on Wednesday morning.

The 29-year-old basketball player was reportedly not arrested but police records revealed that the authorities "were summoned to the Marquis Residences Condominium, at 1100 Biscayne Blvd., at 10:46 a.m. Wednesday because of a 'male down.'"

A source reportedly mentioned in the Miami Herald report that a rescue team was initially requested because of a "combative patient" at Green's residence.

Meanwhile, TMZ dished that the Heat guard was acting strange and screaming at the lobby of his condominium building.

"We're told from several people that there was a huge commotion and it took several people -- including emergency personnel -- to restrain Green and get him on a stretcher and into an ambulance," added the same report.

It was also added by TMZ that one of Green's teammates helped him during the incident and even accompanied him inside the ambulance.

Miami Herald confirmed this saying that it was Heat guard Mario Chalmers, who assisted Green and joined him at the hospital on Wednesday afternoon.

"This morning we were informed that Gerald Green was admitted into the hospital. Right now our concerns are with Gerald, and we have no further comment at this time," the Heat said in a statement quoted by Miami Herald.

In a similar report, the Sun Sentinel said that Miami Fire-Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll confirmed that the patient was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

It was also clarified by Miami Police Detective Frederica Burden that there were no arrests made in line with the incident.

"No Miami Heat players have been arrested, and there are no active City of Miami Police investigations into any Heat players at all," Burden said in the Sun Sentinel report.

Washington Post said Green was not able to participate in the Heat's game versus the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday with the team noting that he has an "unknown illness.

This is not the first time that the player has been involved in a controversial incident since Sun Sentinel noted that he was fined $25,000 by the NBA "for making menacing gestures on the playing court."

Green reportedly showed gestures of slashing his throats and "cocking his fingers."

"He accepts the responsibility of it and we'll have to move on. The league has a very clear stance on it. So he accepts it and we go from there," commented Heat coach Erik Spoelstra of the sanctions given to Green.
