MIAMI (AP) NBA rebounding leader Hassan Whiteside is listed as probable for Miami's game against Toronto on Thursday, despite a laceration on his right hand that needed 13 stitches to repair.
Whiteside was hurt late in Miami's win over Phoenix on Tuesday. He had a bandage around his hand Wednesday, and says his hope is that he can play against the Raptors.
Whiteside will be evaluated again Thursday before a final decision is made.
