Hassan Whiteside was sporting a knee brace on Tuesday but started and played 18 minutes in his first game back, notching seven points, eight rebounds and a steal.
Whiteside missed 13 in a row and will probably be worked back into things slowly. Bam Adebayo was moved to the bench for this one but still saw 25 minutes, collecting eight points, nine rebounds, four assists, a steal and two blocks. He’s really turned it on of late and should be held for a few more games while Whiteside gets back up to speed. The Heat have also mentioned using them together in certain lineups, and he may be able to hold value in 14-16 teamers if he gets consistent run off the bench.
