    Hassan Whiteside had some foul trouble (5) on Thursday, but still managed to play 33 minutes, tallying 14 pointson 6-of-8 shooting to go with 10 boards and a block.

    Whiteside couldn't really keep up with the Mavs tonight, which led to his poor stat line. He's the No. 7 player in 9-cat leagues so we'll give him some leash considering the Mavs are the No. 1 offense in the NBA. Even with Jusuf Nurkic (leg) resuming practice, as long as Whiteside stays in Portland, he should maintain early-round value.

    Hassan Whiteside (groin contusion) is being listed as probable to play on Thursday against the Mavs.

    There doesn't seem to be anything here. Continue to fire up the big man in all leagues as he has simply been a beast in fantasy this season.

    Hassan Whiteside had a monster night on Monday, dropping 17 points with 21 boards to go with two assists and six blocks.

    Whiteside briefly left the game with a quad injury, but returned to the game. It looks like we've avoided any major scare as Whiteside logged 43 minutes and closed this one out. He was crucial in securing defensive rebounds and hit two clutch free throws to help seal the victory for the Blazers.

    In an article exploring their most recent trade, John Hollinger of The Athletic made note that the Blazers are now capable of combining Hassan Whiteside's contract with one of the minimum contracts on their roster to fully get under the luxury tax threshold.

    This matters only because the entire point of yesterday's trade from Portland's side seemed to be an effort to reduce their tax burden and the potential for the dreaded 'repeater tax'. If their new MO is to work towards alleviating that completely, trading Whiteside's giant contract could now accomplish that in one fell swoop. To be clear, there is no official rumor to indicate that he is on the block, but if we are to believe this is the direction that Portland would like to take with this season it's worth keeping a side-eye on.

    Hassan Whiteside kept on rolling in Friday's loss, notching 21 points, 18 rebounds, five blocks and a 9-for-10 shooting line.

    Whiteside is stuck on automatic and figures to remain that way until Jusuf Nurkic returns. He's been a huge steal for fantasy GMs this season and while we'd bet on him slowing down over the last couple of months, you're free to ride this wave to its completion considering his ADP.

    Hassan Whiteside found himself with another double-double at the end of Wednesday night's game, ending with 18 points, 18 rebounds and two blocks.

    Whiteside continues to be a first-round value. The opportunity in Portland couldn't cater to his strengths better and he has been a steal for owners grabbing him in the later rounds of the draft.

    Hassan Whiteside was limited on offense on Monday, scoring seven points on 2-of-6 shooting in 24 minutes, but was able to grab 11 boards and block three shots.

    Whiteside struggled on offense tonight, but he was still able to deliver the rebounds and blocks almost at his average rate. He's been too good to worry about.

    Hassan Whiteside (illness) will play against the Hornets on Monday.

    Whiteside missed Saturday's game with the illness, but he's apparently ready to roll tonight. Anthony Tolliver will return to the bench.

    Hassan Whiteside (illness) is probable for Monday's game.

    Whiteside missed Saturday's game with the same illness, but it shouldn't hold him out of action for much longer.

    Hassan Whiteside (illness) is listed as questionable for Saturday vs. the Bucks.

    Whiteside has been dealing with the illness for the better part of the past week, but it bears mentioning that he was questionable coming into Thursday's game and he managed to suit up for that one. You'll need to monitor the feed before tipoff. If we had to guess, he's closer to 60-40 to play in this one than an even split. If he doesn't play, the Blazers have no true center to replace him.

    Hassan Whiteside scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting to go with 14 rebounds, two blocks and a 3-pointer in Thursday's 102-116 loss to the Wolves.

    Whiteside is as close to a lock to produce on a nightly basis. It's the perfect situation for him and as long as he's playing for the Blazers with Jusuf Nurkic (leg) out, he should put up top-10 numbers whenever he steps on the floor.

    Hassan Whiteside (illness) will play against the Wolves on Thursday.

    Whiteside was unable to participate in shootaround earlier in the day but appears to be healthy enough to play in Thursday's game. It might be wise to steer clear of him when setting DFS lineups but he should be locked in as a starter across all formats.

    Hassan Whiteside (illness) is officially questionable for Thursday's game.

    Whiteside missed shootaround to go to a doctor but the Blazers didn't give him an official status at that point. Him being questionable shouldn't come as a surprise.

    Hassan Whiteside (illness) was unable to participate in Thursday's shootaround and his status for Thursday's game has yet to be determined.

    If Whiteside sits it'll be a real ragtag group at center for the Blazers. Anthony Tolliver probably gets a shot as a small-ball five, and if two-way player Moses Brown is with the team he'll be the last true center left. We'll have another update for you closer to tip.

    Hassan Whiteside had a solid fantasy game on Tuesday, posting 14 points, 16 rebounds, four assists and seven blocks.

    Whiteside's box scores have been fantastic but he was pretty dreadful in this game for the actual Blazers. He left swaths of space open by refusing to leave the paint, failed to contest wide-open shooters, got blown by repeatedly and was bailed out by two blown calls, one which led to the game-tying bucket off his illegal screen and another that led to a jump ball (which he lost to Rondae Hollis-Jefferson anyway). There may not be a wider gulf between fantasy and reality production in the league, but Whiteside's an early-round beast in the numbers game.
