Bam Adebayo (neck strain) is planning to play on Tuesday in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
After injuring his neck in the first game of the series, Adebayo has missed the last two games vs. the Lakers. Indications had been that he was going to push hard for a return to the lineup and this news only solidifies the fact. It is unclear if he will be on a minutes restriction and it may simply be determined by the flow of the game. His return would likely send Meyers Leonard back to the bench and possibly out of the rotation altogether. Kelly Olynyk has been a difference-maker for the Heat over the past two games and would likely remain an integral part of their plans moving forward.
