Bam Adebayo News
Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo (knee) has been deemed questionable to suit up for Friday's contest against Washington due a left knee contusion. Adebayo missed his first game of the year Wednesday due to the ailment, which allowed Nikola Jovic to enter the starting five. With Dewayne Dedmon (illness) also questionable and Jimmy Butler (knee) out, Jovic would figure to play a significant frontcourt role for the Heat in the case that Adebayo is held out. Prior to going down, Adebayo was finding a high-level rhythm with double-doubles in three straight and five of his last six outings. Check back prior to tip off for the final word on his status.
Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo (knee) will miss his first game of the season Wednesday against Toronto. He started the week with a big 30-10 double-double against the Suns, but is now forced to nurse a left knee contusion and can't go Wednesday. Adebayo's absence will leave the Heat in a peculiar spot, as there's a serious lack of frontcourt options, with Omer Yurtseven (ankle) and Udonis Haslem (personal) already unavailable and Dewayne Dedmon (foot) considered questionable for the clash. Orlando Robinson and Nikola Jovic are the only healthy bigs remaining but neither player should be considered a serious fantasy option. Robinson hasn't even played a single minute of NBA basketball so far.
The Miami Heat could be very thin in the frontcourt on Wednesday with centers Bam Adebayo (knee) and Dewayne Dedmon (foot) listed as questionable against the Toronto Raptors. With Udonis Haslem (personal) and Omer Yurtseven (ankle) out, the Heat have no true centers left on their roster if Adebayo and Dedmon are ruled out. Nikola Jovic would likely be asked to fill big minutes if either of them cannot go, but it would also be a good sign for Toronto's Chris Boucher. Boucher would be a great DFS option if Adebayo and Dedmon are ruled out.
Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo scored a season-high 30 points and completed his third consecutive double-double with 10 rebounds in Monday's 113-112 win over Phoenix. He added a steal and an assist to his line while committing three turnovers in 36 minutes and shooting 9-for-18 from the field with a 12-for-14 record at the charity stripe. The final points of the game came through Adebayo's free throws, with him completing a nice fourth-quarter comeback. Adebayo has started to build himself a double-double streak and his scoring has also improved lately, with him posting 54 points across two games. Wednesday's meeting against a Toronto team, whose frontcourt has been ravaged by injuries, promises to offer Adebayo another opportunity to dominate.
