Heat star Adebayo to miss Game 2 of NBA Finals

Miami Heat forward Bam Adebayo will miss Game 2 of the NBA Finals tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Adebayo clutched his shoulder as he exited with just over six minutes remaining in the third quarter of Game 1. He was briefly examined on the sideline before heading back to the locker room for X-rays, which were negative, the Heat said.

The Heat have listed Adebayo as doubtful for tonight, but there remains hope that he could return for Game 3 on Sunday, Wojnarowski reported.

Adebayo, 23, has averaged 17.8 points and 10.9 rebounds during the postseason. He played 21 minutes in the Game 1 loss, scoring just eight points and grabbing four rebounds.
