Bam Adebayo will not suit up for the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the NBA Finals this evening.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the former Wildcat forward will miss tonight’s game due to shoulder and neck strains, but could return for Game 3 on Sunday.

The Heat previously listed Adebayo as doubtful.

During Game 1 of the Finals on Wednesday evening, Adebayo left in the third quarter with what appeared to be a shoulder injury, with the Heat announcing the following day that an MRI revealed a neck strain.

Before leaving the game, the former Wildcat had eight points (2-8 FG, 4-6 FT) and four rebounds in 21 minutes of action. The game prior, Adebayo had a career-high 32 points, 14 rebounds, and 5 assists to help the Heat clinch the Eastern Conference title.

Without Adebayo, the Heat have a glaring hole down low against Anthony Davis, who finished Game 1 with a game-high 34 points (11-21 FG, 10-10 FT) and 9 rebounds in the Lakers’ 116-98 win.
