With Dwyane Wade already out, Hassan Whiteside leaves game with oblique strain
Miami was going up against the Wizards shorthanded on Wednesday, with Dwyane Wade taking the night off due to a sore shoulder, joining Goran Dragic and Chris Andersen in street clothes.
Which is why it was bad news when big man Hassan Whiteside fell to the court grabbing his side in the second quarter. It was a non-contact injury, and he stayed down for a couple of minutes. He was helped to the locker room and is not expected to return.
Amare Stoudemire got the second half start for the Heat with Whiteside out.
