Hassan Whiteside played with one injury Thursday night but left with another.

The Heat center had 16 points and 14 rebounds in a 101-84 loss to the Toronto Raptors in Miami, two nights after needing 13 stitches to seal a cut to his right hand. The NBA’s leading rebounder needed padding and bandages to protect the injury. He seemed a bit limited — his first two shots were rather gentle dunks, not his usual make-the-backboard-shake variety. Then his injury situation got worse: Whiteside sprained his left ankle late in the game.
