Sacramento Kings center Hassan Whiteside will not play Thursday in the team's game against the New York Knicks.
What It Means:
Whiteside is listed as out due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, which is always a concern. It's unclear if the veteran tested positive or was simply in close contact with someone who did, but either way, he'll be forced to miss Thursday's tilt - and perhaps beyond. Look for Nemanja Bjelica to get more minutes in Whiteside's absence.
In 23 games this season, Whiteside has averaged 8.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 19.5 FanDuel points.
