Miami Heat News: Hassan Whiteside Not Available for Game 7 vs. Raptors
- Updated: May 14, 2016
Whiteside broke the news to the media following the Heat’s win over the Toronto Raptors Friday night:
Hassan Whiteside will be on the plane to Toronto on Saturday, but says he's not going to be on the court in Toronto on Sunday.

While it would have been encouraging to see the league’s top shot blocker return for Game 7, the Heat will not use any excuses as they will do whatever it takes. Friday night featured rookie Justise Winslow starting and the trend could continue Sunday.
Whiteside won’t be the only center out Sunday. Raptors starting center Jonas Valanciunas, who’s been nursing a sprained right ankle, is also not near a return. Both big men left during Game 3 and haven’t played since.
Dwane Casey says Jonas Valanciunas "is nowhere close to being ready" after that ankle sprain and won't be there for Game 7.
