Hassan Whiteside said that he will make improving his free throw shooting a priority this offseason.
Whiteside shot just 50.0 percent from the stripe this season, but if he could start knocking those shots down at a more efficient rate, he could emerge as a truly elite fantasy option. Even as a poor free throw shooter, he offers early-round upside for what he brings to the shot-blocking category, and he could make for an absolute steal in the mid-rounds of next year's fantasy drafts. When his minutes hit the 30-minute-mark during the month of April, Whiteside compiled averages of 16.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game on 67.7 percent shooting from the field. He also mentioned that his hand is now at 100 percent. May 14 - 4:11 PM

Date:

Hassan Whiteside (hand) is not likely to play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

He’s been playing with a hand injury and the Heat will just keep him out tonight to help their chances to lose this game. Udonis Haslem benefits most, but he’s not someone most fantasy owners should trust with 14 games tonight.
Apr 15 - 7:46 PM

Hassan Whiteside was terrific against the Magic during a 100-93 win on Monday, scoring 24 points with 13 boards and five blocks in 36 minutes.

He made 10-of-14 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line for one of his best lines for both percentages. Whiteside had been struggling with his free throw shooting until tonight and he's also played at least 35 minutes in each of his last three. He's going to be one of the toughest players to pinpoint on when to draft next season, but he should be an early-mid round guy.
Apr 14 - 1:28 AM

Hassan Whiteside scored 16 points with 18 boards, one assist and six blocks in 35 minutes on Saturday against the Raptors.

The bad news is that he made just 4-of-16 from the line. That means he dropped his season free throw shooting from 51.9 to just 49.0. His free throw shooting has been a disaster since he returned from a hand injury, so maybe that's a factor because he's wearing some protection on his hand. That issue aside, Whiteside is a beast for points, boards and blocks.
Apr 11 - 10:16 PM

Hassan Whiteside will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

The Heat listed him as probable for basically no reason. Whiteside is safe to start in all leagues tonight against Jonas Valanciunas. Hopefully, he doesn't fall for JV's pump fakes.
Apr 11 - 5:56 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hand) is probable to play against the Raptors on Saturday.

He is going to have a protective sleeve on his hand the rest of the way, but it didn't slow him down on Thursday with 19 points and 16 boards. Whiteside is good to go.
Apr 11 - 2:08 PM

Hassan Whiteside scored 19 points with 16 boards and one block in 38 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

He had some beautiful low-post moves tonight and he put up a big line. On the other hand, he had some mental lapses on passes and bit on pump fakes far too often. The main story here is Whiteside getting 38 minutes, so it's safe to say his hand issue didn't keep him from logging major playing time. You'll want to start him on Saturday against the Raptors, who will likely be without Amir Johnson (ankle).
Apr 9 - 10:47 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hand) will play Thursday vs. the Bulls.

Whiteside was never really in danger of missing this one after logging 23 minutes in his last outing on Tuesday. Chicago is the team that Whiteside had his coming out party against earlier in the year, with the ridiculous 14-point, 13-rebound, 12-block triple-double, so make sure you have him on your active roster tonight.
Apr 9 - 6:33 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hand) is probable to play against the Bulls on Thursday.

He played 23 minutes on Tuesday and made 6-of-8 from the field, so there's no reason to think he'll be out in a big game for Miami. Whiteside should be safe to start in all leagues.
Apr 8 - 2:42 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hand) returned to action on Tuesday with 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting, eight rebounds, one block and zero turnovers in 23 minutes vs. Charlotte.

He played surprisingly well given the limitations imposed by the bulky bandage on his right hand, and could have had an even bigger game if he weren't mired in foul trouble all night. This is an ideal start for owners who rolled the dice on him in weekly leagues, and he should be fine for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.
Apr 7 - 10:30 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hand), Dwyane Wade (knee), and Luol Deng (knee) will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

Goran Dragic and Udonis Haslem will join them as Miami limps their way to the finish line. With Hassan active, Chris Andersen (foot) isn't a great option in most leagues, although Whiteside is also a risky play as head coach Erik Spoelstra isn't sure how many minutes he's going to be able to handle. Wade is obviously a must-start option every time he's in uniform, and Deng playing will take away minutes from James Ennis and Henry Walker.

Hassan Whiteside (hand) is expected to play Tuesday vs. the Hornets.

It sounds like Whiteside will be in uniform tonight, but it's worth noting that head coach Erik Spoelstra said he's unsure how many minutes Whiteside will be able to handle. Pain tolerance is the main factor here, and Whiteside is going to be a risky play tonight.
Apr 7 - 6:05 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hand) and Luol Deng (knee) are both being listed as questionable for Tuesday against the Hornets.

Whiteside did not play on Sunday after having his hand injury aggravated previously, and he could very well be a game-time call for this one. Deng, meanwhile, is probably closer to doubtful after word circulated about his season possibly being over due to a knee injury, so we'd be surprised if we saw him suit up. If Whiteside sits, Udonis Haslem could play a major role with Chris Andersen (foot) also a question mark.

Hassan Whiteside (hand) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

With both Whiteside and Chris Andersen (foot) unavailable for this one, expect Udonis Haslem to get all the run he can handle. The Heat play again on Tuesday vs. Charlotte, and we'll be considering Whiteside questionable for that one.
Apr 5 - 5:30 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hand) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

Three of Whiteside's ten stitches opened up during Saturday's game, and his ability to play will be dependent upon pain tolerance. For what it's worth, beat reporter Jason Lieser said that Whiteside's hand was taped up as if he would play, but nothing is official just yet. We'll be monitoring this situation very closely, but if he can't go, Udonis Haslem and Henry Walker will have the opportunity for extended minutes. Stay tuned.
