• Isaiah Whiteside scored eight points on 4-of-9 shooting (0-for-3 from deep) with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block over 23 minutes in his first start for Jeremy Lin (hamstring) on Friday.

    We feel like we could have warned Kenny Atkinson about playing Lin too much and he’s already on the shelf.  The next man up is Whiteside, whose college numbers were kind of insane and especially on defense.  Clearly he’ll have his work cut out for him getting decent minutes, but as you can see the defensive numbers were already there tonight.  He’s worth a speculative add for the long-term if you have any dead weight and he’s most certainly worth a short-term add while Lin is out.
