ANALYSIS: The Heat got hit hard with the injury bug in Game 1 of the Finals as they saw Butler, Dragic, and Adebayo all go down. Fortunately, Butler was able to stay in the game, but Dragic and Adebayo both left the game and did not return.

Adebayo's injury is now confirmed as a 'neck strain' after undergoing an MRI. Reports surfaced yesterday that Bam was going to play Game 2 on Friday, but now Adebayo's status seems to be up in the air as he is listed doubtful for that game. Updates should be provided tomorrow.
