Hassan Whiteside was a beast on the boards in Saturday’s home victory, grabbing 19 rebounds to go with eight points and a block in only 25 minutes.
Whiteside was limited by two early fouls but quickly made up for lost time. He did go just 2-of-10 from the field but should get back on track in his next one. This was his fourth-highest rebounding game of the season and he should be locked and loaded as an early-round play through the end of the year, though it’s been a rockier ride than most expected. Whiteside dealt with injuries earlier in the season and has also seen his minutes cut more freely, but those shouldn’t pose major threats to his humongous contributions in rebounds and blocks.
