The Heat will send Hassan Whiteside to the Blazers when the offseason moratorium ends.
Whiteside will start at center while Jusuf Nurkic is on the mend, and he'll give Portland some more muscle, rebounding and rim-running presence than presumed starter Zach Collins would've. Last season saw Whiteside bust out to a big start before losing some time to injury and only making 53 starts in his 72 appearances, finishing with borderline top-100 fantasy value in 23.3 mpg. He should be able to get more minutes in Portland, but it likely won't be a big increase. He's the same player as ever for fantasy purposes, but perhaps the change of scenery gets him to refocus a bit. Bam Adebayo is going to feast in Miami, and hopefully the hype train doesn't run off the tracks.
