The Miami Heat not only suffered a stinging loss at the buzzer to the Milwaukee Bucks but they may have also lost center Hassan Whiteside for some time. Whiteside needed 10 stitches to his right hand after suffering a gash between the middle and ring fingers on his hand. He sliced his hand hitting the rim and had to leave the game with 5:41 remaining in the second quarter of the Heat's 89-88 loss to Milwaukee at the Bradley Center. ESPN.com

Addressing reporters about an hour before the suspension was announced, Whiteside apologized to the team and to Heat fans and said he must “do better keeping calm, keeping a level head.” His coach, Erik Spoelstra, said the team remains fully committed to the third-year center. “It’s probably the worst 12 hours of my life,” Whiteside said. “I let my personal stuff on the court affect the team. I feel like I let [the team] down. It can’t happen again. It was just a terrible decision on my part. “It was such a far journey for me and I felt I took some steps back. I’m better than that. It’s been a really frustrating 12 hours and I regret it a lot.” Miami Herald

Asked what led to Monday’s incident, Whiteside said “it was a buildup of things, from getting elbowed in the face on the first play on my first block. A couple of shots to the face on the rebound. I let it get out of hand…I told Kelly I didn’t mean to hurt him. “I’ve got to take the hits and hope the refs just keep me safe out there. I’ve got to do better. I’m starting to realize I’m a bigger name in the NBA than what I was. [But] it’s kind of frustrating when random guys are hitting you in your face. People in the scouting report are probably saying, hit this guy with a couple of cheap shots and let’s see what he’ll do. I’ve got to just take it and hope the refs see it.” Miami Herald
