Adebayo did not see the floor during Tuesday's 101-98 win over the Hawks.
Adebayo has been a healthy scratch in two of the last three games. He returned to the lineup last Thursday versus the Bulls following a one-game absence with an ankle injury. However, he has failed to earn a single minute over the last two tilts. If Adebayo doesn't get a chance to play in Wednesday's rematch with the Hawks or Friday's matchup with the Knicks, that's probably a good sign that he won't be relied on much during the playoffs. It wouldn't be that surprising given that veterans Hassan Whiteside and Kelly Olynyk are ahead of Adebayo on the depth chart, but the rookie has averaged 20.1 minutes per game through 65 appearances.
Adebayo (ankle) has been cleared to play in Thursday's game against the Bulls, Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post reports.
Adebayo was originally ruled out for Thursday's contest, but progressed overnight and has now been given the green light to return after going through his pregame routine without issue. After starting at center the last few weeks, Adebayo is expected to head back to a bench role, as the Heat will be getting fellow big man Hassan Whiteside (hip) back from injury. Along with the demotion, Adebayo's overall playing time should take a significant hit, which will severely restrict his fantasy upside moving forward.
Adebayo (ankle) went through shootaround and has been upgraded to questionable for Thursday's game against the Bulls.
Adebayo sat out Tuesday's matchup against the Pacers due to an ankle injury and was expected to miss a second straight Thursday. However, he apparently made some unexpected progress overnight and was ultimately able to go through morning shootaround without issue. Look for Adebayo to now go through a final test during pregame warmups before a final decision is made on his availability. After averaging 24.1 minutes over his last seven games, Adebayo could see his minutes take a significant hit with Hassan Whiteside (hip) potentially returning to the lineup.
Adebayo (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Bulls, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Adebayo wasn't able to practice Wednesday and was originally given a doubtful designation for Thursday, so this was the expected course of action all along. The Heat are hoping to have Hassan Whiteside (hip) back, though he's currently considered questionable. If Whiteside is unable to give it a go, look for Kelly Olynyk and Jordan Mickey to handle center duties.
Adebayo (ankle) did work on the stationary bike Wednesday but did not practice and should be considered doubtful for Thursday's contest against the Bulls, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.
Adebayo missed Tuesday's contest against the Cavaliers due to a sprained ankle, which is giving him enough discomfort to likely keep him out for a second straight game. Assuming he misses the contest, James Johnson, Jordan Mickey, Justise Winslow and Kelly Olynyk are all candidates to see extra run.
