Hassan Whiteside (hip) returned from a 9-game absence on Thursday, logged 19 minutes and delivered nine points, seven rebounds, one steal and two blocks.
Whiteside’s minutes will be increased slowly as he gets back into game shape. The two blocks and seven boards are an encouraging sign that he’s able to be active on the defensive end. With his return to action, expect less minutes from both Kelly Olynyk and Bam Adebayo moving forward. Adebayo returned from a one-game absence and scored three points in 12 minutes off the bench.
