Whiteside scored 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-6 FT) while adding 15 rebounds, a steal and a block in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 109-103 win over the Rockets.
With Clint Capela just returning to action from a leg injury and not able to take on a full workload, Whiteside was able to exploit the Rockets' lack of size inside to record his third double-double in four games and 27th of the season. In fact, in four games since returning from an eye injury of his own, Whiteside is averaging 18.5 points, 14.3 boards and 1.3 blocks, numbers right in line with his production on the season so far.
Whiteside scored 28 points (13-17 FG, 2-3 FT) while pulling down 20 rebounds to go along with two blocks, two assists and a steal across 37 minutes during Tuesday's 107-95 loss to the Warriors.
Facing an undersized lineup that lacked the girth to keep him off the glass, Whiteside feasted and recorded his third 20-20 game of the season. He missed four games due to an eye contusion but has averaged 21.5 points, 16.5 rebounds and two blocks since returning to the lineup, erasing any concerns about the injury affecting his play moving forward.
Whiteside returned to the lineup after missing the last four games due to an eye injury, and the big man notched his 25th double-double of the season. He doesn't provide much in terms of assists or steals, and his free-throw percentage is among the worst in the league. Nevertheless, Whiteside is still impressing overall in his first year as the face of the Heat's franchise.
After joining the
Whiteside (eye) is currently listed as the expected starter at center for Sunday's game against the Clippers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Whtieside, who has been absent the previous four games with an eye injury, rejoined the team in Los Angeles for Friday's loss to the Lakers. He was suited up on the bench, but was not available to play. He appears to be trending toward a return Sunday, and will likely have some form of protection over his injured right eye. Assuming he does indeed return, Willie Reed, who has played surprisingly well in his absence, will likely return to a more limited role off the bench.
