Heat trailing the Cavs 61-46 at halftime. Tyler Herro has 15 in his start in Jimmy Butler’s place. Dewayne Dedmon on pace to play 30 minutes without Bam Adebayo. But Kyle Lowry is just 1 for 6. Heat are going to need much more from him over the next few weeks. – 8:34 PM

Here’s the play during Heat-Nuggets where Bam Adebayo injured his right thumb. He goes up for a pass and slams his hand against Jeff Green’s. You can see him clutching his hand after. He later entered the fourth quarter with his right hand taped. pic.twitter.com/KSWhm4JgBk3:40 PM

Re: Bam Adebayo: The average time lost for in-season surgery to repair a torn UCL of the thumb is 26 games (~7 weeks). Chris Paul and Marcus Smart returned to the quickest, missing 39 days (14 games) and 44 days (15 games), respectively. – 3:17 PM

Some really unfortunate news about Bam Adebayo
A lot of weight is going to be put on Miami’s top guys especially defensively
Dewayne Dedmon is going to have a lot on his plate
But him getting that extra rest isn’t terrible
This is going to be a big test for Miami – 3:15 PM
