Heat center Hassan Whiteside has been battling knee soreness throughout the season, stemming from a bone bruise he suffered in the team’s season-opener against the Magic.

Whiteside missed Wednesday’s game against the Knicks, and hasn’t played more than 34 minutes in a game this season. After missing the team’s final five contests in October, Whiteside did manage to play in every game during November, up until Wednesday’s game. He’s only averaged 26.1 minutes per matchup he’s played in during this month, though, and it’s clear that the team has been in no hurry to rush him back from injury.

But even with playing limited minutes and receiving treatment from the Heat’s medical staff, Whiteside doesn’t seem to be fully recovered, which is cause for concern.
