Bam Adebayo (knee) ruled out for Heat Monday night

Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo (right knee soreness) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Houston Rockets.

What It Means:

Adebayo will sit out the second leg of the back-to-back after hitting a game-winner over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday. Tyler Herro (foot) has also been ruled out while Jimmy Butler (ankle) and Goran Dragic (back, knee) are both questionable, so Kendrick Nunn could be in charge of most of the offense on Monday. Precious Achiuwa, Dewayne Dedmon, and Nemanja Bjelica are all candidates to replace Adebayo in the starting lineup.

Nunn is registering a 30.0 percent usage rate with Adebayo, Herro, Butler, and Dragic off the court this season, representing a positive differential of 8.6 percent. He is averaging 1.0 FanDuel points per minute in those situations and has a salary of $4,800 on Monday's nine-game slate.
