Dedmon ejected after bizarre sideline scene in Miami

MIAMI (AP) — The short-handed Miami Heat got even more depleted in the second quarter of their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, when backup center Dewayne Dedmon was ejected. The Heat had only nine players available for the game and Dedmon was one of eight they used in the first half. He entered late in the first quarter, then was subbed out with 9:25 left in the half. That prompted an argument on the Heat sideline and Dedmon swatted at one of the massage guns behind the bench. The device sailed onto the court while play was happening. Dedmon was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct.
