Heat's Bam Adebayo: Ends season with double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo notched 25 points (10-15 FG, 5-9 FG), 10 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 42 minutes during Sunday's 106-93 loss against the Lakers in Game 6 of the 2020 NBA Finals.

Adebayo struggled with an injury during the Finals and missed two of the six games against the Lakers, but he saved the best for last with an impressive performance in Game 6 -- it was his 11th double-double of the playoffs and the seventh one where he scored at least 20 points. Adebayo settled as Miami's second go-to player on offense during the playoffs and averaged 17.8 points with 10.3 rebounds per game in Miami's impressive run to the NBA Finals.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Scores 15 points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo notched 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, an assist and a steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 102-96 loss against the Lakers in Game 4 of the 2020 NBA Finals.

Adebayo returned after a two-game absence and posted his first double-digit scoring performance of the current series, but the most important thing is that he looked healthy and that bodes well for his chances of making a bigger impact in a do-or-die Game 5 for Miami. Despite the limited involvement on offense, Adebayo continued to look like a bonafide threat in the paint and looked accurate from the field, something that has the case for him throughout the entire postseason run -- he is shooting 56.5 percent from the field in the playoffs.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Cleared for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo (neck) will play in Tuesday's Game 4 against the Lakers, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

After missing Games 2 and 3 due to a strained neck, Adebayo will make his return for Miami with the team down 2-1. Though he'll likely be playing at less than 100 percent, his presence is still a big boost for the team, especially when it comes to slowing down the Lakers' frontcourt.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Planning to play in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo (neck) is planning to play in Tuesday's Game 4 against the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

We'll wait for official confirmation from the Heat, but it appears as though Adebayo will make his return after missing Games 2 and 3 with a strained neck. The All-Star suffered the injury during the second half of Game 1, which he exited after posting eight points and four rebounds in 21 minutes. While Adebayo's return is a major boost for the Heat, he'll likely be playing at less than 100 percent, so it's possible he could have some limitations.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Officially questionable for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo (neck) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Lakers, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

After missing Games 2 and 3, Adebayo appears to be making progress as he works back from a strained neck, but his status is still very much up in the air as of Monday evening. Earlier Monday, Adebayo emphasized to reporters that he only misses games when he's truly injured, so even if he's ultimately cleared to play Tuesday, he'd likely do so at less than 100 percent. Over the last two games, the Heat have turned to Kelly Olynyk at center, and the big man has responded with 20.1 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists per contest. Should Adebayo return, Olynyk would likely see his role decrease.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Uncertain for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo (neck) remains day-to-day as Tuesday's Game 4 matchup with the Lakers approaches, Marc Spears of ESPN reports.

Adebayo noted that he's made progress since suffering the injury in Game 1, but he said his status will ultimately be determined by the Heat's medical staff. "I'm getting better," Adebayo said. "I'm day-to-day. Tomorrow I could play. Tomorrow they could tell me no." The Heat were crushed on the boards without Adebayo in Game 2, but they held their ground in Sunday's Game 3, as Meyers Leonard and especially Kelly Olynyk gave Miami productive minutes. If Adebayo does play Tuesday night, he'd likely be at less than 100 percent, but he'd be a welcome addition as the Heat look to even the series at two games apiece.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Officially out for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo (neck) has been ruled out of Sunday's Game 3 against the Lakers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Adebayo was doubtful coming in, but the Heat left the door open for the big man to potentially return after he was held out of Game 2. Ultimately, Adebayo is still dealing with significant discomfort in his neck/shoulder, so the Heat will again be forced to lean more heavily on Kelly Olynyk and Meyers Leonard in the frontcourt. Adebayo will technically be active for Game 3 so he will not have to wear a mask on the Heat's bench.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Could play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo (neck) has a shot at playing in Sunday's Game 3 against the Lakers, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

Adebayo is receiving treatment around the clock for a neck strain he suffered during Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday. There is optimism he could return for Game 3, but he remains a game-time decision. If he's unable to play, the Heat will be forced rely on Kelly Olynyk again down low. In Game 2, Olynyk scored 24 points over 37 minutes of action.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Ruled out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo (neck) won't play in Friday's Game 2 against the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The 23-year-old is officially considered doubtful after being diagnosed with a strained muscle in the left side of his neck, so it's hardly a surprise he won't be suiting up for the second game of the series. The Heat apparently still have some hope Adebayo could be available to play Sunday in Game 3, but they'll have to get by without him Friday. Kelly Olynk likely will have an increased role down low for Miami in his absence.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Listed as doubtful for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo is listed as doubtful for Friday's Game 2 against the Lakers due to a strained neck.

Adebayo exited Game 1 with what appeared to be a left shoulder injury, but an MRI revealed a strained muscle in the left side of his neck. The Heat have not ruled the big man out for Friday's contest, but as of Thursday afternoon, it appears they're preparing to be without the All-Star. Adebayo finished Game 1 with just eight points and four rebounds in 21 minutes.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Out with shoulder strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo won't return to Wednesday's Game 1 against the Lakers due to a left shoulder strain, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The 23-year-old dealt with similar issues during the series against the Celtics and appeared to aggravate the injury in the first game of the NBA Finals. Adebayo already had X-rays come back negative, and according to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, he intends to attempt to play Friday in Game 2. Before departing from the contest, Adebayo contributed eight points (2-8 FG, 4-6 FT) and four rebounds in 21 minutes.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Leaves with arm issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo headed to the locker room with an apparent left shoulder injury during Wednesday's Game 1 against the Lakers, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.

The 23-year-old battled some left shoulder issues during the Eastern Conference Finals versus the Celtics, and he appeared to aggravate the injury during the second half Wednesday. The Lakers hold a 26-point lead through three quarters, so the Heat are likely to be cautious in returning him to the contest. Adebayo had eight points (2-8 FG, 4-6 FT) and four rebounds in 21 minutes before exiting the contest.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Prolific in Game 6 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo amassed a playoff career-high 32 points (11-15 FG, 10-11 FT) to go with 14 rebounds, five assists and one steal in 39 minutes during Sunday's 125-113 Game 6 victory over the Celtics.

Words can simply not explain the impact Adebayo has had on this series and indeed, the entire playoffs. His rise to superstardom has been a joy to watch, and he certainly has the Heat poised for a title push. The addition of a mid-range jumper to his game only solidifies his well-rounded skill set. Heading into next season, those with Adebayo fever are likely to have to part with a second-round selection to feed their cravings.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Balanced effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo contributed 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes during Friday's 121-108 Game 5 loss to the Celtics.

Adebayo's 13 points are the fewest he's scored in the series, but he helped make up for it rebounding, passing and defense. It's possible he was hindered by a left arm injury suffered in Game 4.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Will play Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo will play in Friday's Game 5 against Boston after appearing to suffer a left arm injury late in Game 4, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.

Adebayo got tangled up with Jayson Tatum while fighting for a rebound late in the fourth quarter and was in obvious discomfort over the final few minutes of the game. Postgame, coach Erik Spoelstra divulged few details, saying only that Adebayo was "fine" and noting that the big man was already icing his left arm. Speaking Thursday afternoon, Spoelstra gave reporters a definitive update: "He'll be ready to go tomorrow," Spoelstra said of Adebayo's status for Game 5. The All-Star finished Game 4 with 20 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and two steals in 41 minutes.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Posts another double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo notched 20 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and two steals in 41 minutes during Wednesday's Game 4 win over the Celtics.

Adebayo has been a double-double machine in these playoffs, and he has six 20-point double-doubles in 13 playoff games this season. The star big man has scored at least 20 points in each of his last three contests and is averaging a double-double with 17.8 points and 11.5 boards per game while shooting 56.3 percent from the field during this postseason.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Big line in Game 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo had 27 points (10-14 FG, 7-9 FT) and 16 rebounds in Saturday's Game 3 loss to Boston.

Adebayo played a team-high 38 minutes and was the best player on the floor for Miami, which shot just 39 percent from the field as a team. Adebayo also added three steals, two blocks and an assist.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Stands tall in Game 2 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo amassed 21 points (10-16 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 35 minutes during Thursday's 106-101 victory over the Celtics.

Adebayo continues to be a difference-maker for the Heat, affirming his stature as arguably the best young center in the league. The Celtics simply have no answer for Adebayo at this point; they even elected to run Enes Kanter out there for a brief period. After scoring only four points in the first half, Adebayo took over during the third quarter, helping the Heat erase a 17-point deficit. Game 3 is Saturday, and the Heat will certainly be going all out as they look to establish a 3-0 series lead.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Nears double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo notched 18 points (5-12 FG, 8-11 FT), nine assists, six rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 43 minutes during Tuesday's Game 1 overtime win over the Celtics.

Adebayo came just one dime away from what would've been his seventh double-double of the current playoff run -- in only 10 games -- but his highlight of the game came on defense, as his block over Jayson Tatum essentially gave the Heat the win in overtime. Adebayo has proven to be a reliable contributor for the Heat on both ends of the court and, even though he's a step below Goran Dragic and Jimmy Butler when it comes to scoring, he is averaging 11.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game while also scoring 16.4 points in 10 playoff contests.

Heat's Bam Adebayo: Shooting falls in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adebayo scored 13 points (4-9 FG, 5-6 FT) and provided six boards and two assists in 31 minutes during a 103-104 win against Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Adebayo had a relatively quiet game by his standards in the series-clinching win, recording his second-lowest rebound total of the playoffs. Even so, the big man has been crucial in helping his team to its 8-1 record this postseason, and he'll be looking to continue providing a presence in the middle during the Eastern Conference Finals.
