Bam Adebayo played in Miami’s scrimmage after recovering from coronavirus.
“It felt good to be back with my teammates,” Adebayo said in a postgame interview. “All in all I feel like I’m back. I feel like I’m going to get back in the flow.”
Adebayo finished with 16 points, four rebound and three assists in 25 minutes.
He has been excellent this season for the Heat. He has averaged 16.2 points, 10.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game. He was voted an All-Star for the first time this season. In order for Miami to make a run in the postseason they will need their big man healthy and he looked good in his return to action.
“He was pretty sharp,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the game. “The most important thing was getting those game minutes and working to get that second wind.”
