Hassan Whiteside (illness) started Wednesday's game and posted 15 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks in a loss vs. Andre Drummond and the Pistons.
Whiteside made 7-of-9 field goals and continues to establish himself as a force to be reckoned with on a nightly basis. He's paying off richly for fantasy owners who gambled on him in the early rounds, posting top-15 value on the strength of 14.5 points (60.8 percent FGs), 11.1 rebounds, 0.8 steals and a gaudy 4.8 blocks.

Hassan Whiteside (illness) is a go for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

This was the expected move as Whiteside was a full participant during shootaround, and he said that the stomach issue is now behind him. The Heat absolutely need Whiteside's size to compete with Andre Drummond, and that will be a fun matchup to watch. Go ahead and get him active.

Hassan Whiteside (illness) was a full participant during Wednesday morning's shootaround, and he's expected to play vs. the Pistons.

While things aren't official just yet, it sounds like Whiteside is going to give it a go tonight, and the Heat will certainly need his size to compete with the rebounding cyborg known as Andre Drummond. Whiteside said that his stomach issues are mostly over, so owners can plan on having him active. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.

Hassan Whiteside stated during a recent interview that leading the league in blocks is no easy feat.

"No, man, it's not as easy as you might think," Hassan said of his knack for swatting shots. "You know, it's weird, because there's two different teams. There's teams that are out there, 'Stay away from Hassan.' And there's teams out there, 'We don't care if Hassan is down there, attack Hassan.' And I love them teams. God bless them coaches and bless them. I love them teams." Despite shooting just 53.4 percent from the stripe, Hassan is putting up first-round value behind averages of 14.5 points (career-high), 11.1 boards (career-high) and a league-leading 4.8 blocks per game (also a career-high).

Hassan Whiteside (illness) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons.

Whiteside didn't practice on Tuesday, but he is traveling with the team and is fully expected to be in the lineup in Detroit. Check back for an update after shootaround, but feel free to keep him locked in your lineups.

Hassan Whiteside (illness) is traveling with the Heat to Detroit for Wednesday's game.

Whiteside sat out Tuesday's practice and remains questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, and we likely won't have another update until after Wednesday morning's shootaround. If Whiteside isn't able to give it a go, Josh McRoberts could enter the starting five with Amare Stoudemire seeing some increased opportunity for playing time. Stay tuned.

Hassan Whiteside said he's grateful for teams that challenge him.

After blocking five shots in Monday's win over the Knicks, Whiteside said he's glad teams challenge him. "You know, it's weird, because there's two different teams," Whiteside said. "There's teams that are out there, 'Stay away from Hassan.' And there's teams out there, 'We don't care if Hassan is down there, attack Hassan.' And I love them teams. God bless them coaches and bless them. I love them teams." The 26-year-old is enjoying a monster season with an average of 4.8 blocks per game and should be started on all fantasy rosters right now.
Nov 24 - 10:08 AM

Hassan Whiteside blocked five shots during a 95-78 win over the Knicks on Monday, adding 11 points, 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes.

The blocks are out of control. Whiteside's 4.8 blocks per game are more than 12 teams. He has first-round value in standard leagues and has been even better than his breakout 2014-15 season.
Nov 24 - 12:45 AM

Hassan Whiteside scored 13 points with nine rebounds, one steal and eight blocks against the 76ers on Saturday.

Everyone loves to block Jahlil Okafor and Whiteside picked up two off him with three off Nerlens Noel. Whiteside is leading the NBA in blocks with 4.8 per game, adding averages of 14.8 points, 11.1 boards, 0.8 steals and 2.3 turnovers. He has top-10 value right now.
Nov 21 - 11:59 PM

Hassan Whiteside scored 12 points with five rebounds, two steal and four blocks in just 18 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

Even with DeMarcus Cousins out, Whiteside picked up two fouls in the first quarter and didn't register any positive stats until midway through the second quarter. Whiteside did add four blocks in the second half and went 100 percent from the line with at least four attempts for just the second time in his career. His league-leading blocks have given him first-round value on the year.
Nov 19 - 11:06 PM

Hassan Whiteside posted his second career triple-double in Tuesday's loss to the Wolves, scoring 22 points with 14 boards and 10 blocks in 34 minutes.

As good as Whiteside was, the Wolves started hacking him down the stretch and he was only able to hit 2-of-9 from the charity stripe, so hopefully this doesn't become a trend for opposing teams. Whiteside also had four turnovers, but his owners would be a little greedy to be upset with those minor hiccups. With the way Whiteside has been playing, it's hard to imagine the Heat not offering him a max deal this summer.
Nov 17 - 11:39 PM

Hassan Whiteside has been more receptive to his teammates advice this season.

"He’s improving quite a bit," Bosh said. "He’s been listening to us. Any time we talk to him about things like that it’s because we want to see him succeed. He has so much talent and he can bring so much to this team. But if his head isn’t there, he can’t give himself what he needs or give the team what it needs. We always tell him, ‘We need you.’ We need him staying in the game." Whiteside has an absurd 14 blocks over his last three games and is averaging 4.0 swats per game on the season. He's the real deal and only getting better.
Nov 16 - 12:25 PM

Hassan Whiteside made 4-of-10 from the field for nine points with 14 rebounds, one steal and five blocks against the Jazz on Thursday.

The bad news is he was 1-of-4 from the line. Whiteside had his hands full with Derrick Favors on the block, which kept him under 50 percent from the field for just the second time this season. He is doing just fine and he's been an 17-13 guy with four blocks this month.
Nov 12 - 10:43 PM

Hassan Whiteside dominated Roy Hibbert and the Lakers with 19 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks in 27 minutes of Tuesday's 101-88 win.

The Lakers are constantly torched by opposing bigs and tonight was no different, as Chris Bosh also went off. Whitey also had 20 points, 11 boards and six blocks against the Raptors on Sunday, and he's rolling with averages of 16.4 points, 12.2 rebounds and 4.2 blocks over his last five games. Yeah, he still can't shoot free throws, but as long as he keeps playing like this, it doesn't really matter. Unfortunately for Whiteside and the rest of the Heat, their two-game week is already over, and Whiteside might have been on your bench in a weekly league.
Nov 10 - 11:04 PM

Hassan Whiteside scored 20 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and blocked six shots vs. Toronto, hitting 8-of-15 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with one steal and zero turnovers.

Whiteside is out to prove that last season wasn't a fluke, and thus far he's positioned himself for a massive contract next summer. He came into Sunday's game ranking seventh in rebounds per game (10.8), second in blocks (3.7), and third in FG percentage (66.7 percent). He's also a fixture in the paint defensively, ranking first in shots defended within six feet at 10.7 per game, with Rudy Gobert a distant second at 8.8.
