Hassan Whiteside played 23 minutes on Monday in the 109-111 loss to the Magic scoring 19 points with 14 boards and an assist.
The Heat rolled with Bam Adebayo in the fourth quarter tonight so Whiteside was just a spectator. Given the Heat lost maybe the Heat will look to find time for their best big man moving forward. That said this seems to be an unfortunate trend for Whiteside and its holding him back from returning to the top-10 value he had a couple years back. Whiteside is a trade candidate, although that’s less likely if Kelly Olynyk misses significant time, as we approach the deadline and if he gets moved its reasonable to expect a solid uptick from the talented center.
