Although Hassan Whiteside participated in Monday’s shootaround, he’s still not ready for game action and will not play tonight.
The Heat will probably lean on all kinds of small lineups tonight rather than try and use traditional bigs to slow down KAT. As for Whiteside, coach Spoelstra was pleased with his progress, so he could return for Miami’s next game on Wednesday. He’s a risky play in leagues with weekly lineup decisions, but owners should prepare to get the big man activated in the near future.
