Heat’s Bam Adebayo to miss 4-6 weeks

Bam Adebayo injury

Miami Heat forward Bam Adebayo has undergone surgery on his thumb. The thumb surgery will force Adebayo to miss 4-6 weeks. He had his UCL ligament repaired during the surgery.

YAHOO! Sports’ Chris Haynes reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

Adebayo has played only 18 games in the 2021 season. He is scoring in bulk, averaging 18.7 points per game and grabbing 10.2 rebounds per game. He is also on pace to average more offensive rebounds per game than in any other year of his career.

He will officially miss 4-6 weeks after the UCL surgery. The Miami Heat sit at fourth in the Eastern Conference as of Tuesday, with a record of 14-11.
