Hassan Whiteside has been playing with 13 stitches in his right hand and is looking to remove them on Monday.
Whiteside suffered a right hand laceration on March 21 that required him to get stitches. It hasn’t stopped the big man from playing but it does give him discomfort when playing. The Heat are currently tied with the Bulls in terms of team record, but is currently out of the playoff picture. These final games will be crucial and Whiteside will play a large role in whether or not they make the playoffs.
