Unfortunately, the Heat look like they’re gonna be shorthanded again, but at least Bam Adebayo (neck) might be out there. Per Tim Reynolds of AP, Bam has a better shot to play over Dragic and Bam has “some hope of finding a way onto the floor.” Chris Haynes of Yahoo! reports that Bam “plans to return.” In other words, Bam’s doubtful tag may be a little closer to questionable. Still, it’s not going to be easy for him to play. Dragic, on the other hand, may be out.
