The Miami Heat announced Thursday that center Hassan Whiteside will miss one to two weeks because of a left knee bone bruise.

The news comes after Whiteside was held out of Wednesday's game against the New York Knicks due to what was then described as left knee soreness.

In his sixth NBA season, Whiteside has become the Heat franchise's cornerstone. He's averaging 14.9 points, 12.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game, co-starring with Goran Dragic on a team that's currently 10-11.
