Miami Heat stars Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo were both listed as doubtful ahead of Friday’s game two of the NBA finals against LA Lakers following an injury scare, in a hammering blow to the Miami franchise, reported AFP.
The Heats were drubbed 116-98 by the LA Lakers in the opening match of the NBA finals.
Dragic suffered a torn plantar fascia in his left foot, while Adebayo is nursing a neck strain on the left-side. Both are doubtful of making an appearance on the game two of the NBA finals, the Heats have stated in an official press release.
Injuries to Dragic and Adebayo deprive Miami of two of the team's most important players in their run to the finals.
Miami talisman Jimmy Butler, who rolled an ankle in Wednesday's mauling but is expected to be fit to play on Friday, said after the game the team would be capable of bouncing back despite Dragic's likely absence.
"We want that guy out there with us," Butler said of Dragic.
"He's a big part of what we're trying to do, but until we can have him back, we got to go out there and we got to fight even harder.
"We got to try to cover up what he gives us and make up for it. We're capable of it. We have to be capable of it. Moving forward with or without Goran we better hurry up and tie it up 1-1."
