After a week of uncertainty on two fronts for the Miami Heat — trade rumors involving Mario Chalmers and the strange hospitalization of Gerald Green — some clarity arrived Tuesday. Chalmers and reserve swingman James Ennis were traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in a multi-player swap to help trim the Heat’s luxury-tax bill. And Green, who was hospitalized last week after fire rescue and police were called to his Miami condo to deal with a “combative patient,” will return to the Heat on Friday. That’s after he’s done serving a two-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. “I want to apologize to my family, fans and the Heat organization,” Green said in a statement released by the team. “I accept the suspension and look forward to rejoining my teammates this weekend.” Green missed his fifth game in a row Tuesday and fourth since he was hospitalized last Wednesday. A source confirmed to The Herald that Green was treated for dehydration at his apartment by a team official Nov. 3, the first game he missed (against the Hawks) with what the team referred to as an “illness.” Green was hospitalized the following morning. Beyond that, though, there are few answers.
