MiamiHerald / Dion Waiters’ left ankle isn’t the only problem for the Miami Heat these days.
Add Hassan Whiteside’s left knee to the mix.
The Miami Heat’s $98 million center – fresh off a 26-point, 22-rebound performance in Wednesday’s opening-night loss in Orlando – will miss Saturday’s home opener against the Indiana Pacers with a bone bruise.
Whiteside, 28, knocked knees with Magic center Nikola Vucevic in the third quarter but played through the pain and discomfort in the fourth quarter. He had an MRI on Thursday in Miami that revealed the bruise.
