Whiteside Rejoins Heat After Eye Scare Injury

Basketball Insiders

Hassan Whiteside has rejoined the Miami Heat in Los Angeles one week after a scary eye injury. Whiteside was held out of team’s 127-100 loss to the Lakers on Friday night, but Miami coach Erik Spoelstra hopes the NBA’s leading rebounder will be able to play Sunday against the Clippers.

Whiteside got accidentally poked in the right eye by Jae Crowder in Boston on Dec. 30, and the Heat’s second-leading scorer missed his fourth straight game Friday. Whiteside stayed behind in Miami while the Heat embarked on their six-game trip, but the 7-foot center improved enough to join his injury-plagued club on the road. “It’s a lot better,” Whiteside said before Friday’s game. “The headaches went away. I’m not seeing double anymore. So I can see a lot better, and a lot of the pain went away.”

Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
