Hassan Whiteside had a full line in Tuesday’s close win, dropping 15 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and three blocks on the Sixers.
Whiteside had to deal with some imposing players and rose to the occasion. His injury has limited his production somewhat, as he’s only a top-35 per-game player at the moment. Averaging 14.4 points, 11.0 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 2.2 blocks while shooting .596 over the last five, Whiteside is gearing up for a late surge up the rankings. The blocks are such a valuable commodity that it’d be a surprise if he didn’t sneak into second-round value, though his occasionally sporadic playing time could be a limiting factor. Either way, he’s going to win you an entire category or two more often than not.
