Hassan Whiteside said he will work on adding some range to his game this offseason. "I might shoot a three every once and while," Whiteside said. "I don't really want to be like a big-time perimeter guy. I just want to shoot enough to where you've actually got to guard it. Even threes, I can shoot threes. But I don't want to be one of those centers that shoot five or six threes and then you're not even dominating in the paint anymore." If Whiteside could occasionally offer fantasy owners with a few triples here and there, that would be a nice bonus, but he'll be an early-round stud either way.

Pat Riley has lofty expectations for Hassan Whiteside's future. "Erik [Spoelstra] and I, we discuss a lot of things about Hassan and how he can better help us," Riley said. "Can he be a 17 [points], 14 [rebounds] and 4 [blocks] guy and shoot 61 percent and 70 percent from the line, which is what I think he is right about now? Or can he be a 25 [points] and 17 [rebounds] and six [blocks] player? I think he can be that, but you have to carve out something more for him offensively." In case it's not obvious, Riley thinks very highly of his franchise center and Spoelstra added that the Heat don't want to put a ceiling on the 27-year-old center's potential.

Miami coach Erik Spoelstra was effusive in his praise of Hassan Whiteside during exit interviews. "I think [Whiteside's] growth has been staggering," said Spoelstra. "You can define it how you want. He can become one of the greats." Whiteside finished the 2016-17 season averaging a career-high 17.0 points and a league-leading 14.1 rebounds, as well as 2.1 blocks. He joined Dwight Howard and Hakeem Olajuwon as just the third player since 1983 to average at least 17 points, 14 boards and two blocks in the same season.

Hassan Whiteside had one of his best games of the season in a 106-103 win over the Wizards on Saturday, scoring 30 points on 12-of-19 shooting with 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks. Whiteside blocked a Bradley Beal 3-point attempt which would've tied the game, so his defense kept Miami's slim postseason hopes alive. The Heat will now need to win their final two games and will need the Pacers or Bulls to drop a game. However, their schedule isn't exactly ideal, as they face the Cavaliers on Tuesday and the Wizards on Wednesday. Both games are at home, though.

Hassan Whiteside made 4-of-14 from the field for 12 points with 10 rebounds, two assists and two turnovers during a 96-94 loss to the Raptors on Friday. His hand injury is definitely bothering him and he didn't get his first bucket until 5:40 left in the third. Whiteside also wasn't happy with the Raptors drawing fouls. "My hat goes off to [Jonas Valanciunas], that guy’s a Grammy Award winning actor. It’s amazing," Whiteside said. "He just throws his head back and it’s a foul. We know they like to flop, the antics they do, we know that." Miami is now a full game behind the Bulls and Pacers.
