Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside will not play in Game 7 against the Toronto Raptors, he told media after his team’s 103–91 win in Game 6.

Whiteside is recovering from a sprained right MCL that has forced him to miss the last three games of the series. He is still not sure when he will be back on the court. 

“I can’t really put a measurement on it,” Whiteside said via the Sun-Sentinel. “It just really depends on what the doctors say and how everything is feeling. I don’t really want to make anything worse.”

Whiteside underwent treatment during Friday’s game and is listed as being out indefinitely.

Warriors–Thunder has all the makings of a potential playoff classic

If the Heat win the series, they will match up against the top-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference final.
