Whiteside active for Heat; Dunleavy sidelined for Bulls

CHICAGO (AP) Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside is active for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bulls after missing the previous two because of a sprained right ankle.

Whiteside, averaging 7.4 points and 5.8 rebounds, was injured against Oklahoma City on Tuesday. He sat out games against Charlotte the following night and Indiana on Friday.

Chicago was again without Mike Dunleavy Jr., who missed his 13th straight game because of a right ankle injury. The Bulls keep saying he's close to returning, but coach Tom Thibodeau says he is ''just not comfortable enough to be in a game.''
