Heat's Bam Adebayo: Will begin season on NBA roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo will begin the season with the Heat but will likely spend time in the G-League, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The rookie out of Kentucky was up-and-down during the preseason, but he flashed an intriguing, if not raw, skill set, and even spent some time handling the ball. According to coach Erik Spoelstra, Adebayo will begin the season with the Heat, but the expectation is that he'll head to the G-League for increased opportunities "soon enough." Assuming that's the case, Adebayo can be safely ignored in most season-long formats, but he's considerably more attractive as a long-term/dynasty league commodity.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Flirts with double-double Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo tallied 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block across 24 minutes in Friday's 119-95 loss to the 76ers.

Make that back-to-back strong performances from the rookie to close out the preseason. He made the most of his minutes with the starters only seeing 10 to 15 minutes of playing time, turning the extra run into a team-high in points and a solid rebound total. Although it remains to be seen what type of role he will have playing behind the likes of Hasaan Whiteside and Kelly Olynyk in the front court, Adebayo has certainly made a case to be in the rotations off the bench when the season tips off Wednesday against the Magic.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Scores team-high 15 points in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo provided 15 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and two rebounds in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 117-115 win over the Wizards.

Adebayo delivered his best performance of the preseason, taking advantage of his first double-digit load of minutes to post more points than he had in the first four tilts combined. On the other hand, Adebayo committed four fouls and two turnovers while contributing minimally on defense, and he's probably a long shot to earn consistent playing time as a young rookie on a deep roster.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Struggles from free throw line in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo scored one point (0-1 FG, 1-8 FT) in six minutes of action during Sunday's preseason opener against the Hawks.

While Adebayo failed to register a rebound, block, assist or steal, the 14th pick in the 2017 draft got to the line eight times, though he converted just one of those attempts. Adebayo wasn't a great free throw shooter by any means at Kentucky, but he hit better than 65 percent of his attempts -- a poor but passable number for a young big man. What Adebayo's role will be during the regular season remains to be seen, but he's unlikely to be a major contributor right away on one of the deepest rosters in the East.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo will not participate during Saturday's summer league matchup against the Grizzlies, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Heat have "apparently...seen enough" of Adebayo, according to Winderman. He's been putting in work during summer league, averaging 15.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals across 29.0 minutes per game over his three appearances in Las Vegas.
