2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 2018-19 campaign wasn't kind to Whiteside, who once again saw his fantasy production dip despite playing in 72 contests. Most notably, he finished the year averaging 12.3 points, which marked his lowest scoring total since the 2014-15 season. On the bright side, he remained a monster on the defensive end of the court, hauling down 11.3 boards while swatting 1.9 blocks on the year. The 7-foot center was shipped off to Portland in July, giving the big man a much-needed change of scenery. Whiteside saw his playing time drop to 23.3 minutes per game a season ago in his fifth year with the Heat, which is something fantasy owners may not need to worry about as a member of the Trail Blazers. He figures to immediately slot in as the starting center, and he shouldn't have too much competition for playing time while Jusuf Nurkic recovers from a devastating leg injury for much of the upcoming season. While Whiteside won't be at the top of many draft boards, he could be an intriguing pick in a brand new environment, and he'll have a chance to take some of the focus off Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Hassan Niam Whiteside, the son of Hasson Arbubakrr and Debby Whiteside, was born in 1989 in Gastonia, North Carolina. Whiteside, who has six brothers and three sisters, graduated from The Patterson School in 2009 after leading the team to a 34-2 record and a No. 1 national ranking. Inspired by his brother Nassan, Hassan has been active in causes which bring awareness to Autism and its implications. His family's charity, Nassan's Place, aims to "raise funds for support services and resources for those affected by autism". In the summer of 2018, he traveled to South Africa for the 16th edition of the NBA's Basketball Without Borders Africa program and participated in the 2018 NBA Africa game.

College/International Summary

Whiteside spent just one season at Marshall, where he was named the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year in 2009-10. Across 34 games, Whiteside averaged 13.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 5.4 blocks in 26.1 minutes. He established school records for single-season and career blocks and was named the Conference USA Freshman of the Year. Whiteside's 182 blocks set the Conference USA single-season record and were the second-most ever by a freshman and the fourth-most in NCAA history. He was selected as an AP Honorable Mention All-American and made the All-Conference USA Second Team. Whiteside also led the country in triple-doubles with three. He notched the first of these efforts in both Marshall and Conference USA history on Dec. 16, 2009.

March 8, 2020
Whiteside logged 19 points (8-11 FG, 3-5 FT), 11 rebounds and three blocked shots across 30 minutes in Saturday's 123-111 loss to the Kings.
ANALYSIS
While Whiteside has provided excellent production for Portland, it will be interesting to see what happens to his output once Jusuf Nurkic returns to the team, an event that could occur within the next couple of weeks. Teams in seasonal formats who are depending on Whiteside for their playoffs may need to develop a contingency plan in anticipation of an imminent downtick in production.

Past Season Summaries
2010

Hassan Whiteside, a rookie out of Marshall, appeared in only one game during the 2010-11 season. He saw 1:45 of action in the Kings' season-opener against Minnesota, finishing scoreless with two fouls. Whiteside also appeared in 14 games for the D-League Reno Bighorns. While in Reno, the big centered averaged 4.4 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per D-League contest. Whiteside was inactive for much of the NBA season before hitting the shelf with a torn patellar tendon in late-January. The injury ultimately kept Whiteside out for Sacramento's final 37 contests.

2011

Hassan Whiteside appeared in 18 games for the Sacramento Kings, averaging 1.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.8 blocks over 6.1 minutes per contest. He made his first appearance of the season on Feb. 15 against the Knicks, playing four minutes and blocking one shot. He scored a season-high five points, to go with seven boards and two blocks, in a loss to Denver on March 5. Whiteside pulled down 10 rebounds against the Rockets on April 8. He notched a season-high three blocks against Phoenix on Apr. 3. Whiteside's Kings finished the season with a record of 22-44 and missed the post-season.

2012

Hassan Whiteside did not play in the NBA during the 2012-13. In December of 2012, the big center was acquired by the D-League Sioux Falls Skyforce. He played in seven games for the Skyforce and averaged 10.3 points, 7.7 boards and 1.4 blocks over 16.4 minutes per D-League game. On Jan. 4, Whiteside was traded to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, also of the D-League. He left the Rio Grande Valley before their playoff games and joined Lebanese club Amchit Club in late April. After three May games for Amchit, Whiteside left Lebanon and joined the Sichuan Blue Whales of the Chinese NBL. Whiteside played in 28 games for the Blue Whales and blocked 5.1 shots per NBL contest.

2013

Hassan Whiteside did not play in the NBA during the 2013-14 season. In November of 2013, Whiteside signed with Al Mouttahed Tripoli in Lebanon. Last year, Whiteside had played three games of professional ball in Lebanon before moving on to China, so the 2013 signing was not surprising. In April of 2014, the big center was released by Tripoli and returned to China NBL ball. Whiteside signed on with Chinese NBL team Jiangsu Tongxi, where he averaged 29.6 points, 16.4 boards, 1.3 dimes and 4.3 blocks per game over 17 games.

2014

Making his return to the NBA for the first time since 2012, Hassan Whiteside began the season in Memphis. However, he did not appear in a game for the Grizzlies and was waived on Nov. 20. Four days later, he signed with the Miami Heat and went on to appear in 48 games, making 32 starts and averaging a career-high 23.8 minutes per game. Whiteside averaged a double-double for the first time in his career, putting up 11.8 points and 10.0 rebounds per game, while adding 2.6 blocks per contest. He led the team in offensive, defensive, and total rebounds, in addition to field goal percentage, blocks and double-doubles. Whiteside had 34 double-digit scoring games, and he reached double-figures in rebounding 24 times. Against Chicago on Jan. 25, Whiteside made history by becoming the first player in NBA history to have a triple-double with blocks in less than 25 minutes of action. He finished the game with 14 points, 13 rebounds and 12 blocks in just under 25 minutes. Whiteside reached 20 rebounds on four occasions, including a 24-point, 20-rebound effort against Minnesota on Feb. 4. Whiteside went 12-of-13 from the floor in that contest. At season's end, Whiteside finished fourth in voting for the Most Improved Player Award.

2015

In his second season in Miami, Whiteside played in a career-high 73 games, further establishing himself as an effective big man for the Heat. The Marshall product started 43 of those games and played a career-high 29.1 minutes per night. Whiteside averaged a double-double for the second straight season with 14.2 points and 11.8 rebounds per game. The 26-year-old did all of his damage from inside the arc, as he did not attempt a single three-pointer all year. Whiteside shot an efficient 60.6 percent from the field, marking the second straight year he eclipsed the 60.0 percent threshold from the floor. He scored a season-high 27 points on 12-of-16 shooting in a win over Brooklyn on March 28. Whiteside had two 26-point tallies, and he also notched 25 points on three other occasions. The rebounding machine grabbed a season-high 23 boards in a win over Washington on Feb. 20. Whiteside had 14 other games with at least 15 rebounds. The big man also set a new career-high with 3.7 blocks per game and led the league with 269 total blocks. Whiteside swatted a season-high 11 shots against Denver on Jan. 15. He had two other games with 10 blocks, making him one of the most disruptive defenders across the NBA.

2016

Whiteside took his game to new heights during the 2016-2017 campaign, his third with the Miami Heat. Whiteside started 77 games, a career-high mark. He set career highs in points (17.0) and rebounds (14.1). In fact, Whiteside led the entire NBA in rebounding. Whiteside collected 58 double-doubles during the season, which was fourth in the league. He scored a career-high 32 points against Orlando on Dec. 20. He snatched a career-best 25 rebounds against Atlanta on Nov. 15. Whiteside accumulated at least 20 rebounds on seven different occasions during the year. He also finished eighth in the NBA in field-goal percentage, hitting 57.7 percent of his shots from the floor. He swatted 2.1 shots per tilt, which was fourth in the league. Whiteside finished tied for fifth in the voting for Defensive Player of the Year.

2017

Whiteside is one of the NBA's premier rebounders, and the 2017-18 campaign served as the latest example of his prowess on the boards. He averaged a double-double (14.0 points, 11.4 rebounds) for a fourth straight season. In fact, Whiteside posted a double-double in more than half (28) of his 54 appearances. A threat for a monster rebounding total every time he steps on the floor, Whiteside finished with at least 15 rebounds on 11 different occasions. He had three games in which he posted 20-plus rebounds. His season high was a 22-rebound effort in a win over Orlando on Oct. 17. In addition to his work on the glass, Whiteside continued to be an efficient offensive player, posting a success rate from the floor of over 50.0 percent for a fourth straight season. Over the course of a seven-game stretch in January, Whiteside racked up a whopping 26 blocks. Whiteside posted a six-block game against Milwaukee on Jan. 17 and finished with at least three rejections on 14 separate occasions overall.

2018

In his fifth season with the Miami Heat, Whiteside started 53 of the 72 games in which he appeared. He averaged a double-double (12.3 PPG; 11.3 RPG) while playing 23.3 minutes per game. It was Whiteside's fifth consecutive season averaging a double-double. The 7-foot center also averaged 1.9 blocks per game, up from 1.7 per game in 2017-18. Whiteside recorded 36 double-doubles and three games with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds. His best game of the season came on Nov. 7 against San Antonio, when he posted season-highs in points (29) and blocks (nine), while also grabbing 20 rebounds. That incredible performance began a stretch of six consecutive double-doubles. During that run, Whiteside averaged 15.7 points, 15.3 rebounds, and 3.7 blocks per game. In February, the athletic big man had another stretch of five consecutive double-doubles. On Oct. 29 against the Kings, Whiteside grabbed a season-high 24 rebounds -- the second-highest total of his career. On Nov. 20 against Brooklyn, Whiteside hauled in a career-best 11 offensive rebounds. Whiteside finished the season ranked 10th in total rebounds, sixth in offensive rebounds, 11th in defensive rebounds, seventh in blocks, and 12th in field goal percentage.

2010
The 2015-16 block champion and 2016-17 rebounding champion, Whiteside saw his role reduced during 2017-18, garnering his fewest minutes per game (25.3) since his first year in Miami. Though he was still productive -- 14.0 points, 11.4 rebounds, 1.7 blocks on 54.0 percent shooting -- it became clear that he wasn't always going to be a staple for coach Erik Spoelstra at the end of games and against small-ball teams. Whiteside also played just 54 games while dealing with knee and hip injuries. Even with that being the case, his 11 games of 30-plus minutes represent a drastic change from 2016-17, when he played 59 such games. That trend, coupled with the swirling rumors that the Heat are looking to trade Whiteside, make him a relatively risky pick for Fantasy. On a positive note, the 29-year-old improved his free-throw stroke to 70.3 percent after three consecutive years at 65.0 or under.
Whiteside, just a year after leading the NBA in blocks per game (3.7) during the 2015-16 campaign, led the league in rebounds per game (14.1) last season. In addition to his staggering rebounding numbers, Whiteside also averaged 17.0 points (on 55.7 percent from the field) and 2.1 blocks per game during the 2016-17 season, which made him one of the premier Fantasy options at center. While his blocks per game did take a hit last season, it was in large part due to opponents challenging him less at the rim rather than him taking a step backward skill-wise, as evidenced by the fact that he still ranked fourth in the league in defensive rating. The Heat’s roster will be almost entirely the same next season, except for the addition of Kelly Olynyk. Though Olynyk spent 91 percent of his time at center last season, the Heat’s front office and coaching staff seems to believe he can play next to Whiteside at power forward for significant chunks of games. If that’s so, Whiteside’s workload and production should be minimally affected, if at all.
Whiteside finished his transformation from pauper to prince in 2015-16, coming through with a spectacular first full season in the NBA to earn a four-year, $98 million contract with the Heat in July. It concluded a stunning rise for Whiteside, a former second-round pick who the Heat plucked from the D-League in December 2014 and watched him blossom into the NBA’s top shot blocker. While maturity issues had delayed Whiteside in getting established in the NBA and were somewhat evident during his rise to prominence in 2014-15, the center was more of a model citizen last season, dropping his technical fouls from seven to four and responding well to coach Erik Spoelstra’s decision to bring him off the bench when he returned from an oblique injury in early February. Whiteside would go on to average 14.2 points (on 60.6%), 11.8 rebounds and 3.7 blocks in 29.1 minutes per game over 73 appearances, accruing three ultra-rare point/rebound/block triple-doubles along the way. Most impressively, Whiteside achieved one of his primary goals heading into the season and improved his free-throw shooting, bringing his mark up from a woeful 50 percent in 2014-15 to a much more palatable 65 percent. There might not be much room for Whiteside to bump up his scoring given that his offensive repertoire is largely limited to putting back offensive rebounds and finishing off lobs, but the fact that he’s no longer a liability at the foul line should help his case for staying on the court during crunch time. That improvement coupled with his unparalleled rejection totals make Whiteside a worthy investment in the early rounds of fantasy drafts.
Whiteside is coming off an explosive breakout 2014-15 campaign with the Heat where he posted averages of 11.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks in just 24 minutes while shooting 63 percent over the course of 48 games with the team. Whiteside will now enter the final year of his current deal, where a very productive season could lead to a very large new contract. Talent-wise, the Marshall alum has it all, as he can finish strong inside, rebound the ball at will, and serve as one of the league's very best shot blockers. However, Whiteside has a history of acting out and having attitude problems on the floor. Last season, the 7-footer was suspended for one game following a cheap shot to the back of Celtic's forward Kelly Olynyk's head, and the move is a cause for concern regarding Whiteside's future. Regardless, Whiteside will use this season to prove both his talent and maturity as the full-time starting center for Miami. He is a walking double-double who is only getting better, but it is his defensive presence that really makes him shine, as there is a good chance Whiteside can challenge to lead the league in blocks this coming season.
Signed non-guaranteed training camp deal with Grizzlies in Sept. 2014. Waived by the Grizzlies in Oct. 2014.
Whiteside missed the entire 2010-2011 campaign due to a major knee injury. And while he enters this season healthy, he doesn’t figure to see very many minutes in the Kings’ crowded frontcourt.
The back of Whiteside’s jersey should read “PROJECT.” While once hyped as a top-10 pick, Whiteside fell all the way to the second round when teams realized that a) his production was only okay in a terrible conference and b) he had only played one season of college despite being 21 years old. Whiteside has potential, but he won’t realize it for at least two or three years.
