Adebayo (rest) rejoined the lineup for Tuesday's 90-98 win over the Jazz, posting 24 points (5-13 FG, 14-16 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and two block across 23 minutes.
Adebayo has been solid throughout summer league so far, but made his presence felt Tuesday and demanded the ball the entire time he was in the game. He scored a game-high 24 points and made a living at the free-throw line, getting off 16 attempts from the charity stripe, which by itself was more than the 12 total attempts from the Jazz squad as a whole. He added some impressive all-around production elsewhere across the box score and rewarded DFS owners who rostered him Tuesday. However, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that the Heat are considering holding Adebayo out of the final few summer league contests for rest, so it will be a situation to monitor closely over the coming few days.
Adebayo (rest) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's summer league game against the Jazz, Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post reports.
Adebayo got the night off for rest on Sunday, but as expected, will rejoin the lineup Tuesday following a one-game layoff. In four summer league outings thus far, including both Sacramento and Las Vegas games, Adebayo has averaged 11.5 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 25.9 minutes. He'll be on double-double watch one again Tuesday.
Adebayo will sit out Sunday's summer league matchup against the Hornets, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
Adebayo is likely just getting the game off for rest, which will also allow the Heat staff the chance to get a better and longer look at some of the more unproven talent on their summer league roster. The second-year big man is coming off an outing Saturday where he posted nine points, four rebounds, one assist and one block across 19 minutes. The team plays again on Tuesday, which will be Adebayo's next shot to get back on the floor.
Adebayo registered nine points (4-10 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 19 minutes during the Heat's 110-84 loss to the Pelicans in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Saturday.
Adebayo continues to see meaningful minutes in summer league play, and as he's done in previous games, he parlayed his time on the court into solid production Saturday. The second-year big man is coming off a strong rookie season in which he averaged 6.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 19.8 minutes over 69 games, so the additional seasoning he's receiving in Las Vegas should only help accelerate his learning curve heading into what could be a big sophomore campaign.
Adebayo finished Tuesday's 89-74 summer league win over the Lakers with nine points (3-6 FG, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block across 21 minutes.
Adebayo didn't have to do much offensively, as teammates Derrick Jones Jr. and Duncan Robinson were both hot and scoring at will. As a result, Adebayo put up just six shot attempts and instead, focused his energy on the boards. For the second straight contest, Adebayo reached double-digit rebounds and has now combined for 24 in two contests. It was originally believed that Adebayo would only get limited run in the summer league, but so far, it appears as though the Heat coaching staff has been comfortable giving the 6-foot-10 big man a fairly significant workload.
