MIAMI (AP) Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside is missing his second straight game, sitting out Monday's matchup with the Atlanta Hawks with a bruised left knee.
Whiteside got hurt in Miami's season-opening loss at Orlando, a game where he finished with 26 points and 22 rebounds. He is listed as day-to-day and will be re-evaluated before Miami's Wednesday home game with San Antonio.
The Hawks are also likely to be without a starter. Point guard Dennis Schroder bruised his left foot in Sunday's loss at Brooklyn, saying afterward he does not expect to play in Miami.
