Hassan Whiteside played 39 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday with 13 points, 13 rebounds, one assist, three steals, three blocks, four turnovers and four fouls.
He looked to have hurt his left elbow in the game, but he didn't need to miss time. Although, Whiteside did not look very healthy in this game with Jonas Valanciunas beating him to rebounds and with a number of easy buckets. Whiteside's knee is likely a bigger concern and he's now playing huge minutes with 39 in Game 1 and 2. May 5 - 11:10 PM

Hassan Whiteside (knee) said he will play in Game 2 against the Raptors on Thursday.

Whiteside was a limited participant in shootaround on Thursday, but plans to be on the court for Game 2 against the Raptors. "I wouldn't miss it for the world," Whiteside said after shootaround. We'll keep an eye on his official status, but he looks to be a safe DFS option for Thursday night.
May 5 - 1:15 PM

Hassan Whiteside (knee) is probable for Game 2 against the Raptors on Thursday.

Whiteside had been expected to play, so this news comes as no surprise after he'd been able to play 39 minutes in Game 1. Whiteside struggled against Jonas Valanciunas in Game 1, but was still able to put up nine points, 17 rebounds, two steals, and one block and is a solid DFS play as long as he's able to play.
May 5 - 10:33 AM

Hassan Whiteside (knee) received treatment on Wednesday.

He is fully expected to play without limitations for Game 2. Whiteside logged a whopping 39 minutes in Game 1, but he was dominated by Jonas Valanciunas in the low post. Still, Whiteside should be ready to roll for a big line in Game 2.
May 4 - 3:06 PM

Hassan Whiteside said that while his strained right knee bothered him throughout Tuesday's Game 1 win, he doesn't anticipate the injury forcing him to miss any time.

"The first five seconds, I was extremely worried, but as I stood up, the pain went away," Whiteside said. "It bothered me throughout the game, but I’m a tough dude so I had to go out there and play. I couldn’t let my guys down." Whiteside briefly exited Game 1 after an awkward fall, but he quickly returned to the court and ended up logging 39 minutes. He may sit out Wednesday's practice as a precaution, but he should be fine for Game 2 on Thursday.
May 4 - 10:19 AM

Hassan Whiteside played through a right knee strain in Tuesday's Game 1 win over the Raptors, scoring nine points (3-of-7 FGs, 3-of-6 FTs) with 17 rebounds, two steals and one block in 39 minutes.

The injury initially looked really bad with his knee bending under his body as he collapsed to the floor, but he was only in the locker room for a couple minutes before returning to action. The fact that he played close to 40 minutes is encouraging and it didn't look like he was limited, but don't be surprised if he sits out of practice on Wednesday as a precaution. He should be fine for Game 2 on Thursday.
May 4 - 12:19 AM

Hassan Whiteside (right knee strain) will return to Tuesday's Game 1 vs. the Raptors.

He was only in the locker room for a few moments before quickly returning to the bench. He gave his teammates a thumbs up and appears to be OK, but we'll be sure to have an update after the game. The Heat just dodged a bullet considering how bad the fall looked.
May 3 - 8:29 PM

Hassan Whiteside (knee) left Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors and went to the locker room.

He fell awkwardly on his right leg and his knee got caught underneath his body, but he quickly returned to the Miami bench. There should be an update soon.
May 3 - 8:23 PM

Hassan Whiteside said that his bruised right thigh is at about 85 percent, but he has no intention of missing any time with the injury.

"It's not 100 percent, but I'm going to keep playing," said Whiteside. The thigh injury didn't appear to limit him much during Sunday's blowout win over the Hornets, and he should be receiving a full complement of minutes for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Raptors. He's one of the better centers to target in DFS.
May 3 - 2:20 PM

Hassan Whiteside double-doubled in Sunday's win over the Hornets, scoring 10 points with 12 rebounds, one assist and five blocks in just 28 minutes.

He was 4-of-8 from the field and basically took Al Jefferson out of the game by getting him into early foul trouble. Charlotte really had no answer for Whiteside in the paint and the Heat were able to outrebound the Hornets 58-36, with 10 of those coming on the offensive glass.
May 1 - 3:25 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hand, thigh) played 28 minutes against the Hornets on Friday with 12 points, seven rebounds and four blocks.

He was slightly limping at times when play was stopped, but he looked fine during the game action. Whiteside has cooled off in his last three, averaging 10.3 points, 8.7 boards, 3.3 blocks and 2.0 turnovers in 28.5 minutes. It could be due to the injury because his minutes haven't really jumped up in the postseason. He'll likely be the top option at center for DFS on Sunday.
Apr 29 - 11:32 PM

Hassan Whiteside said that his hand won't be an issue in Game 6 on Friday.

He is dealing with some swelling, but X-rays came back negative and the injury isn't believed to be serious. Whiteside is averaging 14.0 points, 12.2 boards and 3.0 blocks during the postseason and is safe to leave in all active lineups.
Apr 29 - 11:59 AM

Hassan Whiteside said that his right hand is swollen, but he will fight through the pain and play in Friday's Game 6 against the Hornets.

Whiteside hurt his hand during Game 5's loss, but it doesn't appear to be anything serious enough to force him to the sidelines. Check back for another update on his status closer to Friday's tip.
Apr 28 - 2:55 PM

Hassan Whiteside is dealing with a right hand injury but X-rays were negative.

There aren't any details about the injury, which Whiteside may have suffered during Wednesday's Game 5 loss in Miami. It sounds like he avoided any structural damage but we'll add him to the injury report as a precaution -- for what it's worth, his recent thigh injury no longer seems to be an issue.
Apr 27 - 11:44 PM

Hassan Whiteside finished Wednesday's Game 5 defeat with 11 points, 12 boards, three blocks and one turnover in 32 minutes, making 5-of-8 FGs and 1-of-2 FTs.

Whiteside has struggled defensively against Al Jefferson's shifty post play, and a lingering thigh bruise may be limiting him, but he's still an impact player. Only Al Horford has contested more 2-point field goals per game in the playoffs, and Horford is averaging eight more minutes per game than Whiteside. He'll need to bring his 'A' game for Game 6.
