Adebayo posted 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 FT), eight rebounds and two assists across 35 minutes in Friday's 92-91 win over the Lakers.
The rookie drew another start for Hassan Whiteside (hip) and generated his best scoring total since March 1. Adebayo continued his superior work on the glass as well, as he's now hauled in eight to 16 rebounds over the last four. The former Kentucky Wildcat has taken nine or 10 shot attempts in his last three games as well, although a pair of nightmarish shooting performances (combined 3-for-19) within that sample had capped his scoring contributions prior to Friday. As long as Whiteside remains sidelined, Adebayo's value continues to see a nice bump, although the former could potentially be ready for a return Monday against the Nuggets.
Adebayo scored six points (2-9 FG, 2-2 FT) while adding 16 rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 123-119 overtime loss to the Kings.
The boards were a career high for the rookie, and Adebayo continues to take advantage of Hassan Whiteside's absences -- at least on the glass. Whiteside's latest injury, a hip flexor strain, may not keep him out for too much longer, though, and Adebayo's inconsistent offense makes him a risky DFS play even when he is starting.
Adebayo posted four points (1-10 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists a steal and a blocked shot in 25 minutes during Monday's 115-99 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Adebayo suffered an absolutely dreadful shooting night as he only connected on one of his 10 shot attempts. He still managed to contribute defensively with some boards and a blocked shot, but he was overshadowed by Justise Winslow and Kelly Olynyk , who absorbed most of Hassan Whiteside's (hip) output.
Adebayo will start Saturday against Washington, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
With Hassan Whiteside sidelined due to a hip injury, Adebayo will get the start in a key game for the Heat. The 20-year-old is averaging 7.1 points and 5.3 rebounds in 19.8 minutes per game this season. Adebayo has big shoes to fill as he looks to give his team quality minutes against the Wizards.
Adebayo will be available Monday against the Suns, Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post reports.
A personal issue kept Adebayo out of Saturday's matchup with the Pistons, but he rejoined the team at shootaround Monday and will be available as Miami goes for its fourth win in five games. In Adebayo's last game Thursday against the Lakers, he played 30 minutes and had 15 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks.
