Hassan Whiteside had 15 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks in Wednesday's overtime win.

He was helped out a bit by the extra time, and while he hasn't exploded like a superstar lately, it's hard to complain about anything he's doing. Especially when he was free off the wire for a majority of his owners.
Feb 25 - 10:28 PM

Hassan Whiteside bounced back on Saturday against the Pelicans with 11 points, 16 boards and five blocks.

There was obviously nothing to worry about with his quiet game on Friday. Whiteside continues to be one of the best defensive rebounders in NBA and he's also become more involved on the offensive end, especially with Chris Bosh out for the season. His owners shouldn't be looking to sell high unless it's for elite value.
Feb 21 - 10:31 PM

Hassan Whiteside played just 20 minutes against the Knicks on Friday with 12 points, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

It was the darkest day in the history of Hassanity because Andrea Bargnani dunked on him today. Whiteside doesn't play power forward, so outside of maybe getting more shots on offense, he isn't really affected from the Thursday news. He'll be better than this, but we can all probably agree he's not going to the Hall of Fame just yet.

Hassan Whiteside said the swelling in his ankle is gone.

He'll be ready to go against the Knicks on Friday. Whiteside has been a monster and has posted an elite 32.3 defensive rebounding rate this season. He was always going to be a great rebounder, but the improvement on offense is why he's turned into a fantasy stud. His fantasy owners can start him on Friday.

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) said he's excited for some time to rest his ankle over the All-Star break.

Despite averaging 3.4 blocks per game during January, Whiteside has blocked just two shots over his last three games. "Just really resting my ankle," he said about his plans over the nine day break. 'You know, I've been trying to play through it, just coming back 100 percent, just really get all the swelling down and getting back to where I can jump high and block shots." Whiteside is unlikely to maintain his gaudy January totals, but he's a must-start player any time he takes the court at this point.
Feb 12 - 11:15 AM

Hassan Whiteside scored 17 points with 14 rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes against the Cavs on Wednesday.

He had a big game on the stat sheet, but the defense was not there. Whiteside's contested rebounding rate is elite and he's also been terrific in half-court offensive sets, making 80 percent of his shots on pick-and-roll. He won't be this good, but he's obviously a must-start player.
Feb 12 - 12:33 AM

Chris Andersen spoke glowingly about teammate Hassan Whiteside on Monday.

Asked if there were any similarities between he and Whiteside, Andersen said, "Absolutely not. He does everything 10 times better than I do it. With his length and his wingspan and jumping ability – s***, he’s doing everything with ease. It looks like a video game deal where you create your own guy." It's hard to disagree with the Birdman as Whiteside is averaging 15.4 points, 14.4 boards, and 3.6 blocks over the last 10 games and should be cemented in all fantasy lineups.
Feb 10 - 10:55 AM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) returned to action in Monday's win over the Knicks, scoring seven points on 3-of-4 shooting with nine rebounds and two blocks in 19 minutes.

Whiteside had four fouls and he'll be better than this on most nights. He should be in all lineups.
Feb 10 - 12:44 AM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) said he will play against the Knicks on Monday.

Even with the Heat shorthanded, the Heat probably wouldn't want to play Whiteside if he's not healthy enough to go. Although, Whiteside did say he can't jump as high as usual "but it's high enough to dunk on people." He should be in all season-long lineups, but owners in DFS might want to be careful here. Then again, betting against Whiteside these days isn't a great idea.
Feb 9 - 6:43 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) is a game-time decision against the Knicks on Monday.

The Heat need him to play badly with a slew of injuries occurring to their squad right now. Whiteside missed Friday night due to an ankle sprain and we'll be looking for an update. If he's out, Chris Andersen will start and look to build off a 10-point, five-board game from Friday -- a fair expectation tonight. The Heat will also have to go small a lot and we would see a lot of Justin Hamilton, who played 28 minutes on Friday.
Feb 9 - 6:07 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) is questionable to play on Monday against the Knicks.

After not practicing on Sunday, Whiteside get slapped with the questionable designation on Monday. Owners will have to monitor for updates, but it's possible he's headed for the dreaded game-time call. If he sits out, Birdman Andersen should again draw the start.
Feb 9 - 10:08 AM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) did not practice with the Heat on Sunday, and his status for Monday's game vs. the Knicks is uncertain.

The Heat probably won't want to risk him if he's not at 100 percent, so his owners should have a backup plan ready. Whiteside has become a must-start player in all leagues when he's been active, so his owners should check back for the latest updates after the Heat's shootaround on Monday before setting their lineups. If Whiteside sits out against the Knicks, expect Chris Andersen to start and see an uptick in minutes.
Feb 8 - 1:44 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.

He aggravated his ankle injury on Wednesday and received plenty of treatment. Whiteside has been one of the best stories of the past three weeks and we'll see how he adjusts to life in the NBA. His owners should stand pat. Chris Andersen will start while Shawne Williams and Udonis Haslem may play more.
Feb 6 - 8:06 PM

Hassan Whiteside is doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Spurs after reaggravating his sprained ankle according to head coach Erik Spoelstra.

"He was doing a ton of treatment yesterday," Spoelstra said of Whiteside. "We’ll reevaluate him tonight but we’re going to be smart about it." This is a tough blow for the Heat as Whiteside has arguably been their most important player in recent weeks. We should know more details about his status closer to tip-off, but Chris Andersen would be in line for a larger role if Whiteside sits. Stay tuned.
