Despite a Heat win on Wednesday, Hassan Whiteside had a bad game with just six points and eight rebounds in 22 minutes.
Whiteside is a streaky player, and right now he is seemingly entering a cold streak. Kelly Olynyk did not play much better with 10 points and three rebounds in 21 minutes. Bam Adebayo played the most out of the three Heat big men with 10 points and six rebounds in 26 minutes. The trio is solid for the Heat, but they are unreliable in fantasy and Whiteside is the only must-own of the three right now.

Hassan Whiteside logged 20 minutes on Monday and scored six points on 3-of-7 shooting with eight rebounds and a steal.
Whiteside had a lot working against him here tonight so the low minutes aren't unexpected. The Heat were on a second game of a back-to-back set on the road in Denver which already wasn't a favorable matchup as he had to check Nikola Jokic. He gets a much easier draw against the Mavs on Wednesday.

Hassan Whiteside put up 13 points and 12 rebounds on 6-of-11 shooting in 22 minutes in a loss to the Warriors on Sunday.
This was his fifth straight double-double, but he could not extend his streak of 12 straight games with a block. Kelly Olynyk started next to him in this one and had two points and seven rebounds on 1-of-7 shooting in 22 minutes. Bam Adebayo led the Heat bigs in minutes with 25 and had eight points, 10 rebounds and two blocks on 4-of-5 shooting. Whiteside has been the only Heat big worth owning, but Olynyk seems to be climbing up towards late-round value.

Hassan Whiteside had another big game in Friday's loss to the Kings, notching 17 points (7-of-14 FG, 3-of-4 FT), 19 rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 28 minutes.
That makes four straight double-doubles from Whiteside, as well as 12 straight games with a block. He had some dips in January but looks to have reclaimed the clear majority of minutes in the frontcourt for the Heat. Whiteside's free throw shooting remains a major drag but he's a top-40 guy over the last two weeks. You can consider that a sell-high opportunity given Miami's propensity to shuffle the rotation, plus the fact that the self-proclaimed Agent Block is only a top-100 guy on the year.

Hassan Whiteside scored 28 points on 11-of-12 shooting (6-of-7 FTs) with 11 rebounds, four steals and two blocks in Tuesday's win over the Blazers.
Erik Spoelstra talked about playing him in shorter bursts lately but tonight he just flat out played him. Whiteside has hung around the bottom of the top-100 because he's hitting just 43.2 percent of his free throws. A regression should theoretically be possible but Whiteside is a mess so anything goes here.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra prefers to use Hassan Whiteside in "shorter bursts" so he can maintain his energy level.
Hassan Whiteside has seen a resurgence lately with four double-doubles in his last five games. Spoelstra has been managing Whiteside's minutes closely and the big man ended up producing a 19-point, 14-rebound line on Saturday while logging just over 30 minutes. If this sticks, we could see more of Kelly Olynyk and Bam Adebayo contest for those leftover minutes. Olynyk has been the better big lately, but Bam has shown more consistency over a larger sample size, making him the better hold.

Hassan Whiteside put up 19 points with 14 rebounds on 9-of-13 shooting in 31 minutes of action in a loss to the Pacers on Saturday.
His free-throw shooting (41.6 percent) drags him out of top-100 value and Saturday was no different as he shot 1-of-5 from the line. The trio of Heat centers tend to have fluctuating minutes, so owning any of them is a headache. However, Whiteside is the most consistent both performance-wise and minutes-wise, so he is the preferred Heat center to own. He will always be a double-double threat and is an ideal punt free throws player.

Hassan Whiteside only logged 15 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Bulls as he picked up four fouls in his short stint on the floor.
It's hardly consolation for fantasy owners but Whiteside was on his way to a big game with eight points, nine rebounds and a block in his run tonight. Bam Adebayo saw the biggest jump in playing time with 33 minutes and delivered 13 points and seven boards, while Kelly Olynyk had six points, nine rebounds and two threes in 23 minutes. The fantasy value of this trio remains unchanged, and they figure to give managers fairly frequent headaches.

Hassan Whiteside had another good game on Sunday with 13 points, 16 rebounds and three blocks on 6-of-10 shooting in a win over the Knicks.
He is shooting a horrible 42.7 percent from the free throw line this season and is the definition of a punt free-throws Center. He is a great rebounds and blocks specialist and it is sad to see that he is merely a specialist at this point as his season value is outside the top-110.

Hassan Whiteside collected 14 points, 13 boards, a steal and a block in 22 minutes during Friday’s win over the tanking Cavs.
Whiteside also hit 2-of-2 freebies which was good to see as his league-worst volume weighted free throw average is holding down his 9-cat value to barely top-120 on the season. Bam Adebayo had eight points, eight boards and two steals and remains a low-end play for big-man stats.

Hassan Whiteside posted 22 points, 16 boards, two assists, one steal and one block in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.
Whiteside logged 32 minutes in this game and had his best game in recent memory. He had been falling behind Bam Adebayo, but had a resurgence in this one. He still shot 2-for-5 from the free throw line and is the worst weighted free throw shooter for fantasy right now. Now is a good time to sell high on Whiteside if anyone is willing to take the bait.

Hassan Whiteside had a lackluster outing in Mondays loss to the Celtics, logging just 20 minutes and tallying six points, eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block for the night.
Whiteside is someone who can and should be dropping 20-10 double-doubles along with multiple blocks but has fallen hard lately and his downward trend is concerning. Bam Adebayo was the better play tonight with 13 points (4-of-6 shooting), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 28 minutes.
January 18, 2019, 10:18 pmHassan Whiteside - C - Miami Heat
Hassan Whiteside was more bane than boon in 19 minutes on the floor on Friday, missing all eight shot attempts from the free throw line, finishing with a lackluster line of eight points, 10 rebounds and two blocks.
Whiteside is the worst free throw shooter in the league, weighted by volume. His egregious shortcomings in that category, compounded by his penchant for missing games for this and that injury, dampens his rest-of-season outlook. Look to dump him in a deal after he drops one of his bigger lines.

Hassan Whiteside was able to participate in Monday's practice after sitting out Saturday's game with an illness.
It should be all systems go for Whiteside on Tuesday, so get him in you lineups. Bam Adebayo has been playing extremely well of late, which will make minute-allocation tough on coach Spoelstra. Whenever Whiteside is active he's got to be in your lineups, but he's highly unlikely to reach the same heights he did early in the year.

Hassan Whiteside (illness) is listed as out against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
This comes out of nowhere but hopefully it is just a one-game absence. Whiteside's minutes will be absorbed by Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk. Adebayo has been especially hot over the last couple of weeks and should be already rostered in most fantasy leagues regardless.
