MiamiHerald / Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Tuesday afternoon that Hassan Whiteside, who has missed the past five games with a bone bruise in his left knee, participated in some 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 drills during a light practice that came less than a day after the Heat’s grueling 125-122 overtime loss to Minnesota.
When asked, Spoelstra did not specify if Whiteside’s workout on Tuesday involved any contact practice.
“I mean, he’s getting better, he’s working,” Spoelstra said. “And that’s all I want to see. I want to see him pushing himself and making sure there’s no pain.”
Spoelstra said Whiteside’s condition will be evaluated prior to Wednesday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls.
