Miami Heat: Bam Adebayo out vs. Pelicans

Bam Adebayo will not be available for the Miami Heat for Thursday’s contest against the New Orleans Pelicans. The versatile big is out with knee tendinitis.

The Heat will rely on Precious Achiuwa to provide the much-needed rim protection against Zion Williamson, if he’s available for Pelicans, as the star forward is doubtful for Thursday’s matchup.

Adebayo has been a pretty valuable piece for the Heat the last two seasons becoming an All-Star type of player. While Adebayo is unavailable, Jimmy Butler is expected to return tonight after a two-game absence.

Butler will provide the much-needed scoring and creation boost against the New Orleans’ shaky defense. After a slow start in the season, the Heat has finally found their identity again.

They are on 17-18 record (7th in the East) having 6 of their last 10 games to climb the Eastern Conference standings rapidly.
