The Heat didn’t say Hassan Whiteside is day-to-day.

They said “He will be listed as day-to-day.”

It sounds like Whiteside’s injury is more severe than day-to-day being an accurate portrayal (other than that we’re all day-to-day, man) and Miami is just listing him that way.

Either way, Whiteside isn’t playing this day.

Heat:

With Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas also out, the dynamic of this series – which Toronto leads 2-1 – changes significantly.

How much will Miami use Amar’e Stoudemire, Josh McRoberts and Udonis Haslem? How much will the Raptors use Bismack Biyombo? Will the teams go small more often?

Erik Spoelstra and Dwane Casey will have to make more than the usual amount of adjustments entering tonight’s Game 4.
