BREAKING : Whiteside Out For Saturday’s Heat Home Opener

Word came just moments ago that the Miami Heat’s Hassan Whiteside will miss Saturday’s home opener against the Indiana Pacers with a bone bruise. Let’s hope this is not a case of deja vu for the Heat as everyone remember last season’s injury bug led to a woeful 11-30 start.

Whiteside it seems bumped knees with Magic center Nikola Vucevic in the third quarter, of Wednesday’s season opening loss at Orlando. He played through pain the rest of the way.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said Whiteside,  who had an MRI yesterday, revealing the bruise,  is listed as day-to-day. He sat out Friday’s practice and walked around being sure to not aggravate the injury further.

 Considering what we have seen around the NBA so far this early season.  Whiteside and Heat fans are thankful the injury is not worse. Get back soon big fella !
