Adebayo had two points (0-1 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 95-88 win over the Spurs.
Adebayo returned to a reserve role with Hassan Whiteside rejoining the lineup following a one-game absence due to a minor knee injury. Whiteside was exceptional, leaving little time for Adebayo and fellow backup big man Kelly Olynyk, who saw just 13 minutes. As long as Whiteside is healthy, Adebayo is best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
Adebayo started at center and finished with 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block across 29 minutes in Monday's 120-115 overtime win over the Pistons.
Though opposing center Andre Drummond (25 points, 24 rebounds) had a big night of his own, Adebayo provided quality production while entering the starting lineup in place of the injured Hassan Whiteside (knee). The Heat are listing Whiteside as questionable in advance of Wednesday's game against the Spurs, so another high-minute outing could be in store for Adebayo if the former doesn't gain clearance to play in that contest.
Adebayo is starting at center Monday against the Pistons, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
As expected, Adebayo will get his first start of the season with Hassan Whiteside unavailable due to a knee injury. Adebayo topped 30 minutes for the first time this season Saturday against the Hawks, though he notched just two points and seven rebounds.
Adebayo is expected to start at center Tuesday against the Pistons, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Adebayo will step into the starting lineup for the first time all season with Hassan Whiteside (knee) unavailable. The big man played a season-high 31 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday, though he finished with just two points and seven rebounds.
Adebayo had eight points (4-5 FG), six rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets.
Adebayo continues to put up impressive per-minute numbers, but thus far he's been fairly limited, from a workload perspective. Through seven games, Adebayo has topped 20 minutes only twice, and he appears to be firmly behind Hassan Whiteside and Kelly Olynyk in the frontcourt pecking order. Adebayo's situation could become further complicated once James Johnson (hernia) returns to the rotation.
