The Miami Heat announced Thursday that center Hassan Whiteside will rehab his bruised left knee for a one-to-two weeks.

Whiteside, 28, will be missing extended time for the second time this season due to the knee.

The big fella said the knee was “really bothering” him Wednesday in New York.

Per the Sun-Sentinel:

“It’s really bothering me, man,” Whiteside said Wednesday at his locker at Madison Square Garden.

 

“We’re going to figure it out. We’re going to figure it out when we get back to Miami and figure out what’s wrong.”

 

The MRI showed not only the new bruise, but the remaining initial bruise.
