Hassan Whiteside has been ruled out of Monday’s game against the Nuggets.
The Heat have given precious little clarity on Whiteside’s hip, and he’s an extremely risky play for next week. The fact that he’s been deemed unready to play a full 24 hours before tip doesn’t bode well and owners in the playoffs might not have room to stash him. Kelly Olynyk is a must-own, must-start option in his absence while Bam Adebayo has been a nice source of rebounds as the new starting center. This makes five straight on the sidelines for Agent Block, whose presence or lack thereof will play a major role in Miami’s eventual playoff seeding.
