Hassan Whiteside racked up 23 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks in a win vs. Houston on Wednesday, making 9-of-13 field goals and 5-of-8 free throws in 31 minutes.
Whiteside was irked that coach Erik Spoelstra benched him early on Monday due to a missed rebound, and it looked like he was out to make a statement tonight. "If you don't believe in any side, believe in Whiteside," he said after the game. He was also snubbed as an All-Star replacement tonight, with Carmelo Anthony getting the nod. He shouldn't lack for motivation after the break with the surging Heat just two games out of the No. 8 seed. Feb 15 - 11:30 PM

Hassan Whiteside padded his league-leading rebound average on Monday, hauling in 19 boards with 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

Whiteside came in averaging 14.0 boards per game, just ahead of Andre Drummond (13.9) and DeAndre Jordan (13.7). He's also fifth in offensive rebounds, trailing Tristan Thompson, Rudy Gobert, Drummond and Dwight. Whiteside is also a terrific source of blocks (2.1) and FG percentage (56.4), which has staked him to third-round value on the season -- he rises much higher if you toss out his lousy FT shooting.
Feb 13 - 10:18 PM

Hassan Whiteside scored 12 points with 19 rebounds, one block and one turnover against the 76ers on Saturday.

He went berserk in the last game against the 76ers with a 30-point, 20-board game, but this time he could not pick on Jahlil Okafor (DNP-CD). Whiteside hasn't been involved in the offense as much in the last two, which is somewhat surprising considering Dion Waiters (ankle) hasn't been playing. Perhaps the best news on Whiteside is the Heat are winning games and are now in the hunt for the eighth spot, so a shutdown isn't nearly as likely.
Feb 11 - 10:48 PM

Hassan Whiteside scored eight points with nine rebounds, four blocks and one steal in 25 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

It's easily his worst game since returning from his ankle injury. Whiteside looked fine out there and coach Erik Spoelstra just stuck with his hot lineup late in the game, so Whiteside didn't close and checked out with 7:11 remaining in the fourth. He'll be licking his chops against Jahlil Okafor on Saturday -- Whiteside dropped 30 and 20 in his last game against him.
Feb 10 - 11:34 PM

Hassan Whiteside scored 23 points and hauled in 16 rebounds to help Miami earn their 12th straight victory on Wednesday, making 10-of-12 field goals and 3-of-6 free throws.

The Heat won the season series with Milwaukee, 3-1 and they have the longest win streak for any team in the league this season. It's an amazing turn of events that has propelled the Heat to within two games of the No. 8 seed Pistons. Their sudden playoff contention is terrific news for Whiteside's owners, as it should eliminate the risk of a shutdown.
Feb 9 - 12:37 AM

Head coach Erik Spoelstra praised Hassan Whiteside for his play during the Heat's 10-game winning streak.

"He’s been building and playing very detailed, coherent, multiple-effort basketball really during this whole stretch," Spoelstra said. "This is the first time that Hassan has actually put together the stats that everybody wants to see from him, but we were more encouraged by the last several games of him having rather ordinary stats but doing everything else at an exceptional level, in terms of making winning plays." Whiteside racked up 30 points, 20 rebounds and three blocks in just 27 minutes against Philly, and he's holding opponents to 46.2 percent shooting within six feet of the rim over the last 10 games -- 15.6 percent worse than their normal shooting percentage from that range. With the Heat back in the playoff mix, Whiteside's outlook moving forward has improved significantly.
Feb 6 - 9:16 AM

Hassan Whiteside was absolutely dominant in Saturday's 125-102 win over the 76ers, as he racked up 30 points, 20 rebounds and three blocks in just 27 minutes.

He's one of three players since 1983 to record 30+ points and 20+ rebounds in under 30 minutes, joining Alonzo Mourning and Bill Laimbeer. Whiteside exposed a Philly frontcourt that was missing Joel Embiid (knee), racking up 17 points and 11 rebounds in the first quarter alone. He finished 14-of-17 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line, and this comes on the heels of an 18-point, 18-rebound performance on Wednesday. After a quiet January, Whiteside is suddenly rolling again and the Heat have won 10 straight games.
Feb 4 - 10:07 PM

Hassan Whiteside is not in the concussion protocol.

He did report a headache after Wednesday's game, but it was due to whiplash and not having contact with the floor. In case you missed it, Taurean Prince took down Whiteside hard and caused the big man to stay down for a couple minutes. Whiteside said he didn't have any lingering headaches on Thursday, so he's all set for Saturday against the 76ers.
Feb 2 - 5:53 PM

Hassan Whiteside scored 18 points with 18 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes during a 116-93 win over the Hawks on Wednesday.

He had a really ugly fall and was down for about two minutes. Whiteside did stay in the game after the video review of the play, so there's a chance he was just selling it to get Taurean Prince ejected. He also said after the game that he will pay for James Johnson's ejection for getting his back. For now, we're expecting Whiteside to play on Saturday. In other news, the Heat have won nine straight for their longest streak since 2013.
Feb 1 - 11:30 PM

Hassan Whiteside played 30 minutes and hit 6-of-10 shots for 12 points, nine rebounds, a steal and three blocks before fouling out of Monday's 104-96 win over the Nets.

He's been back for two games after missing one with a sprained ankle and while he didn't double-double in either game, he's averaging 10.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in them. He still doesn't look like he's feeling 100 percent healthy, but as long as he's playing, he should be in your lineup. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready to break out soon and has a good matchup with the Hawks on Wednesday.
Jan 30 - 10:43 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) returned from a one-game absence on Saturday vs. the Pistons and scored nine points on 4-of-9 shooting with 12 rebounds and two blocks in 29 minutes.

The Pistons lead the league with just 9.6 second-chance points allowed per game and they are also rank in the top 10 for rebounding, so this was a tough matchup to be fair. HW wasn't 100 percent and was dominated at times by Andre Drummond, but he stepped up in the fourth quarter with five straight points when it mattered the most. He got a quick hook in the first quarter, but he was moving around much better as the game progressed. He should be fine for Monday's game vs. the Nets, but handcuffing him with Willie Reed in a deep league is wise.
Jan 28 - 10:26 PM

Hassan Whiteside will start against the Pistons on Saturday.

We'll let you know how he does after missing one-plus game. Whiteside said his ankle issue was lingering, so there's a chance he's limited tonight. Willie Reed moves back to the bench.
Jan 28 - 6:54 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) will play against the Pistons on Saturday.

He was playing through an ankle issue for a week after a tweak back on Jan. 19. Whiteside did not play on Friday in an attempt to get him closer to 100 percent. With the big man not being a game-time call, there's decent chance he's back to normal. Season-long owners obviously have to put him in their lineups, but DFS players should consider him a risky option at his lofty price.
Jan 28 - 5:53 PM

Hassan Whiteside (sprained right ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Detroit.

Whiteside sat out Friday night's game after playing through a nagging ankle injury since last Thursday. Willie Reed started in place of Whiteside on Friday and played well, finishing with 20 points (on 9-of-11 shooting) and five rebounds in a team-high 37 minutes. Reed makes a very intriguing DFS and/or steaming option on Saturday if Whiteside is once again sidelined.
Jan 28 - 12:52 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) will not play Friday night but is listed as day-to-day and will be reevaluated prior to Saturday's game vs. Detroit.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said that Whiteside's ankle is swollen and that he will receive treatment through the day on Friday. He will then be reevaluated when the team returns home to Miami on Saturday. Whiteside said he wants to get back out there as soon as possible. "I want to get out here with these guys, I'm a competitor. I want to play the game I love," he said. We should have an update on Whiteside following Saturday morning's shootaround. Daily Slant: Dating back to December 1st, Willie Reed has seen 20+ minutes of court time in five games, and outside of one contest he's exceeded salary-based expectations each time around. Reed has posted at least 40 FPs in the only two games this year where he's cleared 30 minutes of court time, and that is a real possibility tonight against a big Bulls team with Whiteside on the shelf.
