Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Will play Monday

Whiteside (knee) will start at center for Monday's matchup with the Celtics.

Whiteside was considered questionable earlier in the day with soreness in his left knee, but after an MRI cleared him of anything serious, he'll take on his normal role in the starting five. Goran Dragic (elbow) is also good to go, so the Heat get some much-needed bodies back, with guys like Dion Waiters (groin), Tyler Johnson (mouth) and Justise Winslow (wrist) all out with their respective injuries.
