Hassan Whiteside (foot) played in Thursday’s loss to the Hornets, scoring 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting (5-of-6 FTs) with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes.
Whiteside has been the No. 5 and 9 fantasy producer over the last two months in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively. Over that 20-game sample size he has hit 77.3 percent of his free throws on 4.9 attempts per game. It’s rare to see a player with so much upside — not in the area of foul shooting — actually take their biggest weakness and turn it on its head like this. He showed no signs of injury tonight.
