The Miami Heat fined center Hassan Whiteside an undisclosed amount Sunday for “comments detrimental to the team” in response to his remarks Saturday night expressing frustration with his role.

He went on an expletive-laden tirade after Miami’s 110-109 overtime loss Saturday to the Brooklyn Nets, when the Heat missed a chance to clinch a playoff spot, saying he should play more and might be better elsewhere.

 

“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.”

Whiteside, who has missed 29 games this season because of injury, has seen his playing time average decrease to 25 minutes in 2017-18, down from 29.1 minutes in 2016-17, when he finished as the league’s leading rebounder. The previous two seasons, he averaged 32.6 minutes.
