The Miami Heat reportedly fined big man Hassan Whiteside for his comments following Saturday's loss to the Brooklyn Nets. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported the news, noting the fine was for comments detrimental to the team. The penalty comes after Whiteside expressed his frustration with playing a mere 20 minutes in the 110-109 overtime defeat. Jackson noted he questioned his future with the organization after he wasn't used in the critical late-game situations.
Chris Bosh has failed his physical, meaning the Heat will not clear him for training camp next week and casting serious doubt on his playing future.
We're not buying that Pat Riley messed up in ushering Dwyane Wade to the Bulls. It's more likely this was his plan all along.
After 13 seasons and three NBA titles in Miami, Dwyane Wade is returning home to Chicago. Take a look back at Wade's top plays and greatest moments in a Heat uniform.
If the Heat want Kevin Durant, they almost certainly have to say goodbye to Hassan Whiteside and/or Dwyane Wade.
Goran Dragic attacked and Dwyane Wade stepped up. ESPN Stats & Information takes a look at how the Heat forced a Game 7 against the Raptors.
Heat center Hassan Whiteside (MCL sprain) says he won't be back for Game 7 of the East semifinals against the Raptors on Sunday.
There was nothing pretty about it, but the Toronto Raptors prevented their title hopes from being placed on life support as they withstood a game-tying three-pointer from Goran Dragic with 10.5 seconds remaining in regulation to capture a 96-92 overtime win at Air Canada Centre on Thursday night.
Toronto Raptor Kyle Lowry channeled his inner Villanova Wildcat and drilled a half-court heave at the fourth-quarter buzzer to send Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals series to overtime, but the Miami Heat displayed tremendous mental fortitude as they stole home-court advantage and captured a 102-96 win Tuesday night.
Head coach Tyronn Lue should have rested his main guys, because that's what his team did during supposed competition Saturday night.
Joe Johnson on a prorated minimum contract for the final two months of the season is a very different player than Joe Johnson on a deal paying him $25 million. Fairly or unfairly, Johnson has been labeled as an underperformer over the last several seasons -- even in those in which he made the All-Star team in the East -- because his agent was really good at negotiating with the Atlanta Hawks back in 2010. Since then, he's been a productive player but he hasn't been a $25 million player.
The newest invitee to Miami Heat training camp, Corey Hawkins, is built remarkably similar to Mario Chalmers at 6'1" and 195 pounds. The difference lies in their basketball abilities: Hawkins specialty is scoring (he was his conference's scoring champion for two out of the last three years with the University of California, Davis), while Chalmers strong suit is defense where he was co-defensive player of the year in college in 2006-07.
Like any guy in his mid-20s, Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside is a big fan of the NBA 2K video game series. Unfortunately, playing as himself in the game couldn’t have been much fun in recent years, considering the people at 2K kept giving him lousy ratings. In NBA 2K12, the first edition Whiteside was featured in, he was rated at 49 out of 100. Bouncing around the D-League, with stops at two Chinese clubs and two Lebanese teams, didn’t convince the game’s manufacturers that he was much better.
