Hassan Whiteside is moving towards a return on Thursday after missing the past nine games with a strained left hip flexor.
Whiteside had pushed to come back in Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, with the decision made to instead have him run on Tuesday and then participate in Wednesday's practice, positioning him to play Thursday against the Bulls. A return by Whiteside would boost owners in deep playoff matchups this week and he needs to be picked up in all leagues that he was dropped. Rookie Bam Adebayo is dealing with a sprained left ankle and missed last night's game while Kelly Olynyk and James Johnson would make for risky plays if Whiteside is finally able to play tomorrow.
