Heat’s Hassan Whiteside ejected for elbowing Boban Marjanovic in the head

Hassan Whiteside has been a very solid contributor for the Miami Heat this season. Averaging 12.2 PPG and 11.1 RPG, the Heat can hardly afford not to have him on the floor as they battle for playoff positioning. Of course, having Whiteside on the floor presents problems as well. Namely, that he’s very likely to do something that’s going to get him thrown out of the game or even...
