Jonas Valanciunas, who had been playing some of the most inspired basketball of his career, has been ruled OUT for remainder of the series vs. the Miami Heat. Now, Miami's own big man, Hassan Whiteside, has been officially ruled OUT for Game 4.

Injuries happen, you can't prepare of game plan for them. Unfortunately, we've been robbed of one of the 2016 NBA Playoffs' more interesting matchups. Hassan Whiteside vs. Jonas Valanciunas served to remind us all that the era of big men in the NBA isn't quite dead yet. Here's hoping both players make speedy recoveries and resume their peak form soon.
