Report: Miami Heat make huge upgrade to Bam Adebayo’s status for Game 4'
1 Min Read

The Miami Heat are flying high after a huge Game 3 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.

Things may be starting to shift in their favor, as the Heat have upgraded All-Star big man Bam Adebayo to questionable for Tuesday’s Game 4.

Adebayo, who was injured in the Heat’s Game 1 loss last week, missed both Game 2 and Game 3 with a shoulder strain.

However, it looks like the University of Kentucky product has a better chance of suiting up in what will be a pivotal Game 4.

Miami was able to avoid falling in a 0-3 series hole on Sunday, mainly because Jimmy Butler had a 40-point triple-double to lead the Heat.

Now, Miami could be getting its second-best player back with a chance to even the series on Tuesday.

While the Heat will likely still be without guard Goran Dragic, Adebayo’s return would be a huge boost on the defensive end and on the glass.

During the regular season Adebayo averaged 15.9 points, 10.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game.
