Bam Adebayo will return to Miami Heat lineup for Game 4

In light of Aaron Rodgers' recent comments that "down years" for him are "career years for most," Michael Smith is ready to crown Rodgers as the best to ever play the position, but Michael Holley says not so fast.

The Miami Heat will get one of their two stars back for Game 4 against the Lakers Tuesday.

Bam Adebayo will return to the Heat lineup, the team confirmed. Adebayo had missed the last two games of the NBA Finals due to the combination of a shoulder injury that slowed him against Boston and a new neck injury.

Adebayo strengthens Miami’s “pack the paint, make the Lakers shoot threes” system that has worked well for them in the last six quarters of the series. Adebayo is the Heat’s best individual defender on Anthony Davis and LeBron James, plus the Miami center is the team’s best rebounder.

Goran Dragic tried, he warmed up before the game.

However, as Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press noted, that didn’t last long.

The Miami Heat trail the Los Angeles Lakers 2-1 heading into Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
