Hassan Whiteside has been ruled out of Monday’s game versus the Hawks with a bone bruise, according to Tom D’Angelo.
Whiteside is considered day-to-day going forward. With Whiteside out last game the Heat opted to start Jordan Mickey and James Johnson, with Kelly Olynyk coming off of the bench. Even though Mickey is starting, it will be Johnson and Olynyk seeing the largest usage and minutes bump among the big men.
