Hassan Whiteside, who was iffy coming into Monday night with a knee injury, hit 10-of-13 shots for 25 points, 17 rebounds and two blocks.

He hit just 5-of-10 free throws, but coming through with the monster line after it looked like he might not even play was huge. He's been the best fantasy center in the game this season and has already racked up 14 double-doubles in his 17 games.

Hassan Whiteside (knee) is starting against the Celtics on Monday.

He made it through warmups unscathed and the good news is that the MRI results came back negative. We'll let you know how he looks after the game, but he belongs in all season-long lineups.

Hassan Whiteside (knee) is a game-time call vs. the Celtics on Monday.

Whiteside's MRI came back clean and it's a good sign that he's warming up. We should have another update within the hour, but expect Willie Reed to step up if Whiteside can't go.
Nov 28 - 5:53 PM

Hassan Whiteside (left knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. Boston.

Whiteside's left knee was an issue during the preseason, but this is the first mention of it since the regular season started. He's likely dealing with soreness, but the Heat may be cautious since they currently have a 5-11 record. He will have an MRI later this afternoon, so we'll know more shortly. Willie Reed (knee) is expected to be available Monday and could be in line for a sizable workload if Whiteside sits.
Nov 28 - 12:32 PM

Hassan Whiteside fouled out in 27 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday with four points, 12 rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

It's the first time he fouled out this season. Whiteside's fouls have seen a slight uptick to 3.3 per game, but that's not too surprising with his 3.7 minute increase. While he has slowed down offensively with just 10 points combined in his last two, there's no need to worry.
Nov 26 - 1:27 AM

Hassan Whiteside followed up Monday's career game with just six points, eight rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes of action.

Whiteside scored 32 points in a losing effort vs. the Sixers but he flopped in tonight's matchup vs. Andre Drummond. He gets a pass tonight due to the tough opponent and the fact that he's been incredible through Miami's first 14 games, averaging 18.8 points, 15.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 2.7 blocks. That's good enough for top-20 roto value, and he's an easy first-round player if you toss out free throw shooting.
Nov 24 - 1:59 AM

Hassan Whiteside scored a career-high 32 points in a 101-94 loss to the 76ers on Monday, adding 13 rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes.

He shot 13-of-19 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line, bumping his free throw percentage up to 58.3 percent on the season. Whiteside has double-doubled in seven straight games and this performance came against one of the most promising young centers in the league in Joel Embiid. The Heat have three more games this week against the Pistons and the Grizzlies twice, where he will be matched up on Andre Drummond and Marc Gasol.
Nov 21 - 10:08 PM

Hassan Whiteside didn't have a single rebound in the first quarter of Saturday's 114-111 win over the Wizards, but still finished with 18 points, 18 rebounds and three blocks.

He's a monster this season, has double-doubled in six straight games and is averaging 17.4 points, 18.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 3.0 blocks on 54 percent shooting over his last five. He missed all three of his free throws tonight and didn't have his first rebound until less than four minutes were left in the first half, but those are about the only faults we can find with him right now.
Nov 19 - 10:42 PM

Hassan Whiteside blocked seven shots during a 96-73 win over the Bucks on Thursday, adding 12 points, 17 rebounds and two steals.

He now has a huge lead in rebounds per game at 16.0 -- Andre Drummond has 13.8 -- and he's trailing Anthony Davis for blocks per game by just 0.2. Whiteside offensive numbers are on the rise with his 25.1 usage rate, which is way up from his 20.5 last season. He may actually hold his lead in boards and he's a good bet to take the blocks lead away from The Brow.
Nov 17 - 11:24 PM

Hassan Whiteside torched the Hawks with 19 points, 25 rebounds, two steals and a block in 38 minutes in Tuesday's tough loss to the Hawks.

Paul Millsap played solid defense on Whiteside after Dwight Howard left with a calf contusion, or Whiteside's line would have been even more monstrous. The 25 boards tied Whiteside's career high and are the most rebounds in an NBA game this season. He's averaging 16.4 points, 17.6 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 2.0 blocks on 48 percent shooting over his last five games, and is currently the No. 1 fantasy center.
Nov 15 - 10:15 PM

Hassan Whiteside hit 9-of-11 shots and 5-of-9 free throws on his way to 23 points, 17 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Monday's 94-90 loss to the Spurs.

The guy is a freak and while there were a ton of cheap center options out there in DFS tonight, the smart money would have been to just play Whiteside and forget about it. He's double-doubled in all but one game this season, and has at least 11 rebounds and a block in all nine of his games.
Nov 14 - 11:56 PM

Hassan Whiteside had 20 points, 20 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Thursday's tough loss to the Bulls.

Whiteside dominated the paint and rendered Taj Gibson useless, although Robin Lopez had one of his best games of the season for the Bulls. Whiteside has now double-doubled in all but one game this season and helped make up for Monday's disappointing line when he had just five points, 12 boards, a steal and a block. And as a bonus, he even hit all four of his free throws tonight, as well as took over the league lead in rebounding from Andre Drummond.
Nov 10 - 10:54 PM

Hassan Whiteside, who started off the season with five straight double-doubles, had his streak stopped by the Thunder on Monday when he hit just 2-of-8 shots for five points, 12 rebounds, a steal and two blocks.

Owners were certainly hoping for more against the Thunder and Steven Adams tonight, but Whiteside never got it going. And unfortunately, the Heat only have two more games this week for Whiteside to make it up to them. And the Bulls and Jazz aren't ideal matchups for the big man, either.
Nov 7 - 10:51 PM

Hassan Whiteside scored 21 points during a 96-87 loss to the Raptors on Friday, adding 16 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 38 minutes.

On Tuesday, he became the first Heat player to have a double-double in his first four games since Rony Seikaly. Tonight, he added to that and even pulled out former Heat guard Harold Miner's signature dunk on a breakaway (video in link below). He's off to a monster start this year.
