Heat list Hassan Whiteside (knee) out for Game 6
Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside (knee) is being listed as out for Friday's Game 6 against the Toronto Raptors.
Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said he didn't anticipate Whiteside doing anything more than rest and rehab on Friday, so it's not surprising at all to see him listed as out on the injury report. Amar'e Stoudemire, Udonis Haslem and Josh McRoberts will continue to pick up some extra minutes in Whiteside's absence, but none of those guys make for great DFS targets. Luol Deng (wrist) will likely be forced into heavy minutes, with Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade doing more on offense.
Losing Whiteside is a major blow, as he owned the ninth-best nERD during the regular season at 12.4. He's averaged 12.7 points, 12.1 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game in the playoffs.
