Hassan Whiteside says he's planning to rebound, block shots, etc., "but I don't really know the plays."

Jason Lieser

New Heat Hassan Whiteside says one of his jobs here is "dunking on people."

Bill Reiter

A woman just recognized me at our remote broadcast-because she thought I was Ben Savage. Was hard telling her I wasn't bc she was so happy.

Dwyane Wade

Ive missed being out on the court winning and losing w my team/ but being smart with this hamstring… instagram.com/p/v1HuO7FCCk/

Jason Lieser

Norris Cole says the splint on his finger affects everything but his shot. Expects to play tonight.

Barry Jackson

Spoelstra says Heat views Hassan Whiteside as developmental prospect that it wants to invest time in

Barry Jackson

Heat says Wade out tonight and Cole probable and Chris Andersen out for undetermined length of time

Jason Lieser

Bosh on the weird season: "It's fun."

Ira Winderman

Figure on Hassan Whiteside only if absolutely needed tonight, with Haslem and McRoberts next two in power rotation after Bosh, Shawne.

Ira Winderman

Heat tonight shapes up as Norris Cole probable with finger; Dwyane Wade out with hamstring; Chris Andersen out with ankle and flu.

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra repeatedly stressed that Whiteside is being viewed as a "developmental player". Will need time to acclimate to Heat culture/system

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra says that Wade will not play tonight. MRI on Birdman didn't reveal significant damage, he will still be out for the time being.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Erik Spoelstra said today that Chris Andersen will be out "a little while," but it does appear that Norris Cole will play tonight.

Joseph Goodman

#Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says his staff is taking a long-term approach to newcomer Hassan Whiteside.

Jason Lieser

Wade (hamstring) definitely out tonight vs. Golden State.

Joseph Goodman

Norris Cole went through shootaround today and he likely will be available tonight against the Warriors.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Steve Kerr: "Cole is a really good player, but Napier is playing so well that they seem similar."

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra says the MRI on Chris Andersen's sprained ankle turned out to be not as bad as it looked on video.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Steve Kerr says Andrew Bogut is likely to play tonight, but David Lee is still not ready. #warriors #heat

Jason Lieser

Wade (hamstring) went through some of shootaround today, but not all. Erik Spoelstra not tipping his hand, but sounds doubtful to me.

Jason Lieser

Chris Andersen (sprained ankle) is also out with the flu. He'll be "out a little while" according to Spoelstra.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra says Norris Cole (dislocated finger) went through shootaround and has a splint on his finger. Spoelstra sounds optimistic.

Ira Winderman

Looks like Andrew Bogut will play tonight vs. Heat. He participated in shootaroiund (has an orbital contusion)..

Of course, Roy Hibbert is a monster and a big part of that. But IND handled the offensive-juggernaut Mavs last night in DAL without him.

Tom Haberstroh

Frank Vogel's doing a helluva job. Lose DPOY candidate Paul George, Lance. Gives Copeland + Luis Scola heavy minutes. Still, a Top-10 D.

Ethan J. Skolnick

The only reason you delay the announcement until night hours is to foster a scene like this.

Mario Chalmers

Prayers up for their families. Something has to be done about this.......stand up for wats right instagram.com/p/vzujDcv4Vd/

Dwyane Wade

The Wade family hearts and prayers go out the the Brown family..

Mario Chalmers

My thoughts and prayers are with Mike Brown and the people of Ferguson. We have to stand up for wats right as a people and as a nation.

B.

Obama said nothing he really wanted to say. He's so disappointed in his country. You can see it in his eyes. Once again America failed him.

B.

So my question is are we really moving for justice, peace, and equality or for the attention it brings?

B.

As African American we lost a lot of our fight. MLK and others fought every day. Not just when someone dies.

B.

Once again a system can not fail who it wasn't meant to protect. I'm not surprised at all. I'm just shocked that we keep letting it happen

B.

My heart goes out to Mike Browns family. We truly live in a corrupt world. May God protect them and help them find peace.

Ethan J. Skolnick

It's been said that you can indict a ham sandwich in this country.....

And now Bills block Jets punt for a touchdown to go up 24-3 in Detroit. If Dolphins can't beat these Jets twice in December....

Bill Reiter

So, I guess some folks really liked this @FOXSportsLive podcast Andy and I did on pet peeves. Here it is again, IYMI soundcloud.com/fox-sports-liv…

Ira Winderman

Heat sign Hassan Whiteside to bolster power rotation, release Shannon Brown, who had started the past two games. bit.ly/1viXS75

Ethan J. Skolnick

The Heat's release of Shannon Brown shouldn't surprise. Miami needs size, and Brown was having trouble getting time w/ Wade out.

Victor Oquendo

WATCH LIVE: #Ferguson grand jury decision announcement to come at 9 PM bit.ly/1pgXEwi http://t.co/Jlje1dXF7f

Ira Winderman

Even with Shannon Brown waived, it remains unlikely Dwyane Wade plays Tuesday and Cole also is unlikely to return from dislocated finger.

Barry Jackson

... Heat wanted depth inside with Chris Andersen nursing ankle injury.Opted for Whiteside over Khem Birch, who had good moments in preseason

Barry Jackson

... Whiteside, 7-0, a former second-round pick out of Marshall, was excelling in NBDL.Has played in 19 NBA games,all for Kings, from 2010-12

Ira Winderman

Whiteside will wear No. 21 for Heat.

Ira Winderman

Heat have waived Shannon Brown to make room for Hassan Whiteside.

Barry Jackson

Heat signs center Hassan Whiteside and waives guard Shannon Brown. Heat keeps Andre Dawkins over Brown.

Barry Jackson

The Jets who the Dolphins will see next Monday are down 14-3 at half to Buffalo, being outgained 186-81.Vick:6-15-42 yds, sacked three times

Victor Oquendo

Cavs cruising in CLE (LeBron 22 & 7 at half). Clippers up 3 in CHAR. Blazers trailing in PHIL, which eliminates them from West playoffs.

I wonder how much more overtime the cops make in St. Louis for an announcement at night compared to during the day? #Ferguson

Heat's Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers nominated, but Toronto's Lou Williams named NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

Important to make distinction pts/100 above league-average. League-average offense is 103.2 pts/100. In '12 it was 99.9. In '03 it was 97.2.
