Shortly into the second quarter of Saturday’s Game 3 of the Heat-Raptors series, Hassan Whiteside took an awkward fall and injured his right knee. A trainer helped him to the locker room.
X-rays were negative on the knee, but the Heat ruled him out for the rest of the game.
Ethan Skolnick of the Miami Herald reports that Whiteside will undergo an MRI on Sunday.
Needless to say, this is a huge blow for the Heat, at least for this game. If Whiteside misses more time, it could cost Miami the series.
