  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic was able to return to the court for Game 6 on Sunday, despite dealing with a torn left plantar fascia, and was able to see 19 minutes off the bench and produce five points (2-of-8 shooting), five rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    Dragic wanted to be there to give his team hopefully a better chance at winning Game 6, but the Lakers had other plans and dominated the game early on and snowballed an early lead to claim victory in dominant fashion. It stands to question as to whether Dragic will be back with the Heat next season, but his strong play for them in the playoffs will be something for the history books, for sure.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo led the Heat on Sunday with 25 points (10-of-15 FGs, 5-of-9 FTs), 10 rebounds, five assists and two blocks, but it wasn't enough for his team as they fell to the Lakers in an ugly blowout loss.

    Series result aside, Adebayo has been a treat to watch, not only in the Bubble Playoffs, but all throughout the 2019-20 regular season as he elevated his game to new heights. Expect him and the Heat to come back strong in 2020-21, hungrier and hopefully better, maybe even good enough to win the title for themselves.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler made 5-of-10 shots from the field and 1-of-3 shots from the line as he quietly put up a subdued performance in Sunday's blowout loss to the Lakers with 12 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, one 3-pointer and one block.

    Game 6 wound up being a statistically anticlimactic performance from Butler, who was dropping triple-doubles in this series like they were nothing. That said, broken dreams aside, Butler, this particular Heat squad, and their performance in these unique playoffs will be remembered for years to come.

  • Gabe Vincent
    PG, Miami Heat

    Gabe Vincent (right knee soreness) is inactive for Sunday's Game 6 against the Lakers.

    Vincent's been listed as questionable for a few weeks now and the Heat have rarely updated his status given his standing in the rotation, but he's out as usual.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) is on the active roster for Sunday's Game 6.

    Dragic was listed as doubtful on the injury report and while active doesn't mean available, this is a positive sign for him. We'll await word from the Heat as to whether or not he'll play, but any minutes Dragic does get will take away from Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro. If nothing else, having The Dragon on the bench should be a huge emotional lift for Miami. It's already been confirmed that he's not starting.

    Gabe Vincent (right knee soreness) has been listed as questionable for Game 6 on Sunday vs. the Lakers.

    Nothing to see here. Vincent is not in the rotation, even when healthy.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) remains doubtful for Game 6 vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

    This is basically what we had expected based on recent news. Dragic suffered the injury during the Game 1 loss and while he attempted to warm up for Game 4, he was in obvious pain and barring a miracle, his season is likely done.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo was relatively quiet in Friday's Game 5 win over the Lakers, posting just 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, four assists and one blocked shot in 38 minutes on the floor.

    Adebayo was taken off the injury list prior to this game, so we know he is healthy. Credit does go to the Lakers defense, which has been tenacious and consciously focusing its energy on both Adebayo and Jimmy Butler throughout this series. He's going to need a bigger contribution if the Heat want to even up the series in Game 6 on Sunday.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler brought it all in Friday's must-win affair vs. the Lakers, pouring in a 35-point triple-double in another epic clash with his series rival, LeBron James, leading the Heat to a 111-108 victory in Game 5.

    Butler was on his A-game, hitting 11-of-19 shots from the field and a perfect 12-for-12 run at the line for his 35 markers. He also added 12 boards, 11 dimes, five steals, one 3-pointer and one blocked shot to complete an overall epic performance. Nothing less can be expected from one of the league's fiercest competitors. Count on him to lay it all on the line once again in Game 6 as he tries to keep the Heat's championship hopes alive yet again.

  • Duncan Robinson
    F, Miami Heat

    Duncan Robinson woke up in Friday's Game 5 win, shooting the lights out of the Lakers with seven made 3-pointers en route to his series-high 26 points on 8-of-13 shooting.

    This is exactly the kind of game the Heat needed from Robinson tonight, lights-out shooting and engaged effort on the defensive end. He's been quiet for the most part of the series, but a game like this can do wonders for a player's confidence level, so the Lakers better watch out for him in Game 6.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) will miss Friday's Game 5 against the Lakers, per Shams Charania.

    Dragic was initially listed as doubtful and appeared to be in great pain the last time we saw him try to warm up to play. It's a shame that his first Finals appearance resulted in such a quick injury, and he'll have to hope that the Heat can extend the series tonight to give him another shot at taking the court.

    PG, Miami Heat

    Gabe Vincent (right knee soreness) is once again listed as questionable ahead of Game 5 vs. the Lakers on Friday.

    Vincent has yet to play in the NBA Finals and has only seen 15 seconds of action throughout the postseason. Regardless of his availability, Vincent won't see the floor.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo is no longer listed on the team’s official injury report ahead of Game 5 vs. the Lakers on Friday.

    Adebayo injured his neck/shoulder in the opening game of the series but was able to return in Game 4 without any restrictions. The Heat will be running with the same starting group that they had on Tuesday as the team will likely be without Goran Dragić again as he continues to recover from a torn plantar fascia. Bam will do all he can to help the Heat extend the series as they currently face a 1-3 deficit.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    While the Heat haven't released their injury report for Friday's Game 5, Erik Spoelstra expects Bam Adebayo (neck) to be good to go.

    Adebayo missed Games 2 and 3 but returned for Game 4, logging 33 minutes and putting up 15 points with seven rebounds. With Miami facing a do-or-die situation, it'd be stunning if Adebayo wasn't in the starting lineup tomorrow.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragić is doubtful to play in Friday's Game 5 vs. the Lakers as he continues to recover from a torn left plantar fascia.

    It appears likely that we saw the last of Dragić in Game 1 as a torn plantar fascia typically takes more than a month to heal and his injury came just one week ago on September 30. Continue to expect Tyler Herro to start while Kendrick Nunn will continue to get opportunity off the bench as the Heat look to get back in the series after dropping their last contest on Tuesday. The Lakers are currently one win away from winning their 17th championship as they have a 3-1 advantage.
