Heat center Hassan Whiteside didn’t hold back Saturday night in voicing his frustration about his reduced playing time late in games, when opponents deploy a small lineup. Whiteside’s expletive-filled rant came on the heels of Miami’s 110-109 overtime loss to the Brooklyn Nets, in which he played 20 minutes and sat for the entire fourth quarter and overtime period.

The Heat’s highest-paid player questioned why the team is matching up when “we’ve got one of the best centers in the league.” “A lot of teams don’t have a good center,” Whiteside said. “They are going to use their strengths. It’s bulls—. It’s really bulls—, man. There are a lot of teams that can use a center.”
