UPDATE at 11:47 AM — Hassan Whiteside has been ruled out for tonigh’t game. See below.
Hassan Whiteside (knee) went through full shootaround but will not play tonight. Coach Spo says his progress is encouraging.— Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) October 30, 2017
Whiteside did only non-contact drills on Sunday and therefore is not likely to play until he can at least get some contact in. He has been working to a return soon.
Whiteside banged his knee in the opener and the Heat are taking a very cautious approach to his return.
The Heat have started both Jordan Mickey and Bam Adebayo in his absence.
Miami plays Minnesota at 7:30 PM EST in Miami.
