Wade: Whiteside 'very, very important' to Heat's success


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Heat center Hassan Whiteside scored 18 points on 6 of 10 shooting while grabbing a career-high 25 rebounds in his team's 100-94 win over the Lakers Wednesday.

Whiteside has racked up 24 rebounds twice this season, including in Saturday's loss to the Hawks, but he managed to push his career-best total Wednesday while turning in his highest scoring total since Feb. 4. He also blocked four shots in the win, giving the center five straight games with multiple blocks.

"He’s what you call special," guard Dwyane Wade said after the game. "He’s so long, everything that gets off the rim he has it. He’s for real about what he does. He protects the basket and when he gets mad he’ll dunk on everybody. He’s very, very important to this team’s success."

The Heat are set to face the Wizards Friday.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

During Tuesday's game, Whiteside was ejected after getting into an altercation with Suns center Alex Len. By avoiding a suspension, Whiteside will be available to play in Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

"I just basically said that I just felt like he was frustrated with as many dunks as I did on him," Whiteside said, per the Associated Press.

Whiteside went up for a rebound and dunk and when he came down, Len pulled him off to the side. Whiteside then retaliated by diving at Len's legs to take him to the ground. Both teams rushed to both players before any punches were thrown. 

Whiteside finished with a double-double, scoring 17 points and grabbing 10 rebounds while Len posted a double-double of his own, scoring 10 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.

Birdman on emergence of Whiteside: 'S---, he's doing everything with ease'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Heat forward Chris Andersen shared his thoughts on the emergence of center Hassan Whiteside on Monday. When asked if there are any similarities between he and Whiteside, Andersen shook his head in disagreement.

"Absolutely not. He does everything 10 times better than I do it. With his length and his wingspan and jumping ability -- shit, he's doing everything with ease," Andersen said, per the Palm Beach Post. It looks like a video game deal where you create your own guy and he gets in there and just does what he does. It's fun to watch. You can imagine what his career's gonna be like. I try to pass my experience on to him and give him a little insight of what I've learned over the years. In a way, he does what I do. But he's got a soft hook. I ain't got that. He has a nice jumper. I got that. His length with his arms is amazing."

As of Jan. 1, Whiteside has the highest PER (32.0) in the NBA, topping the likes of Anthony Davis (31.0), Stephen Curry (29.4), James Harden (28.9) and LeBron James (28.2). He's also on pace to have the fourth-highest rebound percentage while on the floor in league history. Through 24 games, he has averaged 9.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per contest. He has eight double-doubles and one triple-double over that span.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) The Heat have listed center Hassan Whiteside as doubtful for Friday's game against the Spurs in San Antonio, reports Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.

Whiteside has emerged as one of the biggest surprises of the league, averaging 9.8 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocks through 23 games this season. He scored a career-high 24 points on 12 of 13 shooting while hauling in 20 rebounds in his team's 102-101 loss to the Timberwolves Wednesday. He is averaging 17.4 points, 15.8 boards and 2.2 blocks over his last five games.

Heat C Hassan Whiteside delivers 24-20 line vs. Timberwolves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Heat center Hassan Whiteside scored a career-high 24 points on 12 of 13 shooting while hauling in 20 rebounds in his team's 102-101 loss to the Timberwolves Wednesday.

Despite the outstanding performance, Whiteside was involved in a strange play with less than a minute to go that involved him catching an in-bound pass from Norris Cole, who then instructed the center to go out of bounds and in-bound the ball himself. After Cole tossed Whiteside the ball, the ref blew the whistle and the Heat turned the ball over.

It was the third time this season Whiteside has scored at least 20 points in a game and the second time he's managed 20 turnovers, but it was his first game doing both at the same time. He also kicked in three steals and two blocks in 36 minutes. He'll face the Spurs Friday.

"I love to see the young guys respond," coach Erik Spoelsta said, per the team. "They were fearless today."

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 C Hassan Whiteside on active roster Friday


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.
