Whiteside is frustrated by the change.
“It’s tough; I mean it’s tough,” Whiteside said last week, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
“I’m not going to lie. It’s frustrating. It’s nothing I can really do about it. Just keep a positive attitude. Coach is going to try to do what’s best for the team. He just wants to win. If I am playing 10 less minutes than I played last year, there isn’t much I can do about it.
Despite the frustrations, Whiteside has played well, averaging 14.2 points, 12.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.
