Heat's Hassan Whiteside grabs 16 rebounds in loss to Bucks


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) Heat center Hassan Whiteside recorded another double-double during Tuesday's game against the Bucks, but it was not enough as the Heat lost 109-102.

With Chris Andersen out, Whiteside received the start and scored 16 points on 6 of 12 shooting. He also grabbed 16 rebounds, which tied his season high. However, he did not record a block for the first time in 12 games.


Heat rule Andersen, Deng out of Tuesday's game vs. Bucks


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) The Heat announced center Chris Andersen and forward Luol Deng have been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

Andersen is dealing with an elbow and back issue, while Deng is suffering from a calf injury. Center Hassan Whiteside will most likely replace Andersen in the starting lineup. Forwards Danny Granger and James Ennis could be in line for more playing time with Deng out.

The Heat are 2-point favorites.


Heat's Hassan Whiteside has mentor in Alonzo Mourning


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) As Heat center Hassan Whiteside tries to become one of the top centers in the NBA, he'll have a Hall of Fame center to help him during his journey.

Former Heat center Alonzo Mourning has been a steady influence on Whiteside since he joined the Heat in November, reports the Sun Sentinel.

Mourning has taken on a mentor role with Whiteside to ensure Whiteside stays humble as he ascends to the ranks of top NBA centers.

"Alonzo Mourning is here to keep him even keel," guard Dwyane Wade said. "That's his job. Our job as teammates is to keep him confident, keep him focused."

Along with Mourning, Whiteside also has assistant coach Juwan Howard to lean on. Howard spent 19 seasons in the NBA and has helped develop Whiteside's low-post game.

"He's a great guy," Whiteside said. "He played 19 years in the league. It's not too many who can say that. He just talks to me every day."


Hassan Whiteside worth your time


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) Heat center Hassan Whiteside has taken the league by storm these last few weeks, with an ankle injury looking like the only thing that can slow him down at this point. At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog I took a look at Whiteside's play, and can't find a reason Fantasy owners shouldn't add him, even if he's rough.

"However, that doesn't mean we shouldn't temper expectations. Whiteside was hardly even in the league before he was out of it, logging 111 minutes in two seasons before toiling away in China and Lebanon for two years before landing back stateside. Even during this breakout run, he has logged very limited minutes, playing just 287 on the season overall and has yet to play even 30 in a single game so far. Heat coach Eric Spoesltra has mostly used Whiteside in brief bursts, where he has been able to overwhelm the competition with his length and athleticism, but we haven't really had a chance to see what he does when he has to conserve himself for long stretches, with an opposing team that has been able to game plan for him.

We're about to see what Whiteside can really do, and I'm excited for it. Few players have ever done what he is right now -- 5.8 blocks per-36 minutes is an incredible number, not matter how many caveats you have to throw in. The Heat have to give him as many minutes as he can handle at this point, just to see if he is for real. Fantasy owners who have already added him should be thrilled by the thought of him getting 25-plus minutes for the foreseeable future, even if there's a chance he flames out."

Whiteside has a very limited track record, but he should be owned in all formats and Fantasy leagues at this point. Centers who show the kind of potential he has so far don't grow on trees, and if he can manage to live up to even part of it, he could be a big Fantasy difference maker in the second half of the season. 


Heat's Hassan Whiteside records triple-double vs. Bulls


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Heat center Hassan Whiteside recorded his first triple-double of his career during the Heat's 96-84 victory over the Bulls on Sunday.

Whiteside set a franchise-record with 12 blocks, which was also an NBA season-high.

"I'm just trying to bring my NBA2K rating up," he said.

Whiteside came off the bench and played 25 minutes. He also added 14 points on 6 of 10 shooting and grabbed 13 rebounds to help lead the Heat to victory.

"This is a tough place and we came out and got a win," Whiteside said. "I'm proud of this team."


Heat's Hassan Whiteside cleared to play Sunday at Chicago


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Heat center Hassan Whiteside has been cleared to play in Sunday’s game at Chicago, the team announced.

Whiteside missed the last two games after spraining his ankle, but he said he is close to 100 percent.

In 17 games, Whiteside is averaging 7.4 points and 5.8 rebounds. The Heat are 8-point underdogs to the Bulls.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Heat center Hassan Whiteside (ankle) is on the active roster for Friday's game against the Pacers.

Whiteside was considered questionable to play Friday, and while he's not in the starting lineup, his active status could lead to minutes off the bench, though the team could also choose to save him for an emergency. He didn't travel for Wednesday's road game after suffering an ankle sprain Tuesday.

The Heat are 3 1/2-point favorites at home against the Pacers Friday.


Heat's Dwyane Wade, Hassan Whiteside plan to play Friday

Heat's Luol Deng, Hassan Whiteside to miss Wednesday's game


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Heat small forward Luol Deng (illness) and center Hassan Whiteside (ankle) are not traveling with the team to Charlotte for Wednesday's game against the Hornets, the team announced.

Deng managed to play 29 minutes Tuesday after being deemed a gametime decision due to his illness, scoring eight points on 2 of 6 shooting. His absence against the Hornets could lead to a bigger role for Shawne Williams, who played seven minutes Tuesday.

Whiteside suffered an ankle sprain in the first half of Tuesday's game after jumping out to a hot start, scoring 10 of his team's first 15 points. The team relied on Chris Andersen and Udonis Haslem at the center position after Whiteside's injury with center Justin Hamilton inactive for the game.


Heat C Hassan Whiteside (ankle) unlikely to travel to Charlotte


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after Tuesday's loss that center Hassan Whiteside is unlikely to travel with the team for Wednesday's game in Charlotte, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Whiteside, who indicated after the game that he's dealing with a grade-1 sprain, suffered the injury in the second quarter of Tuesday's loss and was unable to return. "I was really worried, but it’s not super, super bad," he said.

Whiteside scored 10 of his team's first 15 points and still owned the team lead in scoring at the time of his injury. After facing the Hornets in Charlotte Wednesday, the Heat return home for a game against the Pacers Friday.


Heat C Hassan Whiteside suffers ankle sprain Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Heat center Hassan Whiteside suffered a right ankle sprain in Tuesday's game against the Thunder and is questionable to return, the team announced.

Whiteside appeared to roll his ankle after landing on Thunder center Kendrick Perkins' foot. He was sent to the locker room immediately to be checked out. Whiteside had racked up a team-high 10 points on 5 of 5 shooting in 11 minutes of action before leaving with the injury in the second quarter.


Heat trying to keep center Hassan Whiteside's ego under control


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) New Heat center Hassan Whiteside is known to be a bit arrogant around the league. That attitude is what some attribute to his early struggles to catch on with a team, like former NBA executive Amin Elhassan, who now works for ESPN.

"If you’re a jackass, rubbing away that reputation is very hard," said Elhassan, who before working for ESPN was the assistant director of basketball operations for the Phoenix Suns. "It’s very easy to ruin your reputation and very hard to rebuild it. Hassan Whiteside, for lack of a better word, was a 'jackass' when he came out of college. He was delusional and would say things that were not commensurate with how great he was as a player."

Whiteside turned many teams away from him when he told many scouts he didn't need to work on any aspect of his game.

"It turned a lot of people off," Elhassan said on ESPN Radio. "His work ethic wasn’t very good. He had to hit rock bottom and figure out that, 'Oh my gosh, my approach in life has not gotten me where I want to go,' and credit to him that he did that."

Coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters Tuesday the team is trying to make sure he's got his head on straight after seeing success in his last few games.

"It’s not about all that right now," Spoelstra told The Miami Herald. "I know everybody is getting caught up in that, but when I met with him it was about the commitment to work, the commitment to the player development. After a very good road trip, he came in [Sunday], did an hour and half of player development. He is just responding to all of the work. That’s what’s encouraging."

In his last five games, Whiteside is averaging 12.4 points, 9.2 rebounds and 3.2 blocks. He also currently has the second-highest player efficiency rating in the Eastern Conference, just behind LeBron James.


Heat C Hassan Whiteside doubles up vs. Warriors


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2015) Heat center Hassan Whiteside scored 10 points on 5 of 10 shooting while hauling in 12 rebounds in his team's 104-89 loss to the Warriors Wednesday.

Whiteside drew his first start of the season Wednesday and saw double his typical allotment of playing time, recording 29 minutes while delivering his third double-double in his last five games. The center also managed to block three shots in the loss. He'll square off with the Kings Friday.


Heat to start Napier, Whiteside on Wednesday at Golden State


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) In a somewhat surprising move, the Heat will start Shabazz Napier at point guard for the first time in his NBA career Wednesday against the Warriors.

Napier has not played significant minutes since December, but with guard Dwyane Wade ruled out, he will receive the start.

Center Hassan Whiteside has scored in double-figures in five consecutive games, but will make his first start of his NBA career Wednesday. Center Chris Andersen moved to the bench to accommodate Whiteside.

The Heat are 15-point underdogs.


Heat center Hassan Whiteside explodes for 23 points, 16 rebounds


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Whiteside has scored in double figures in all four of Miami's games so far in January and is now averaging 10 rebounds per game in those contests. He also added two blocks and two steals to his stat line.

“He had a terrific game," coach Erik Spolestra said after the game. "What you’re seeing is his confidence level rising and his teammates’ confidence in him rising.”
