Hassan Whiteside has been told that he needs to wear his knee brace after trying to play one game without it.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Whiteside’s knee, and for good reason — he’s been great since returning from his initial injury. It doesn’t sound like there’s been a re-aggravation, though Whiteside did play just 19 minutes last night. The Heat were trailing for most of the night and he did pick up three fouls, so it’s hard to point at a potential injury for the minutes. Whiteside will play through any discomfort the brace causes but as of now there’s no reason to be concerned.
