Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra has provided an update on the injury status of Caleb Martin (knee), Josh Richardson (upgraded to questionable), and Bam Adebayo (now questionable) ahead of the Milwaukee Bucks matchup.
Caleb Martin (knee) won’t be available for Monday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks, as reported by Ira Winderman. This marks his third consecutive absence due to a lingering knee issue.
Additionally, Josh Richardson (questionable) is likely to miss his fourth straight game at the beginning of the season due to a foot injury sustained in the preseason.
Despite initially being considered a game-time decision, it appears he won’t be on the court tonight, according to Ira Winderman.
This situation opens up the possibility of extended playing time for Jaime Jaquez and Duncan Robinson, particularly with Caleb Martin (knee) also out for the game.
Also, Bam Adebayo has had his status changed to questionable for the Milwaukee game due to a left hip contusion, as noted by Ira.
While not initially listed on Miami’s injury report, his availability is now uncertain following the morning shootaround.
If the All-Star center can’t play against his longtime friend Damian Lillard and the Bucks, Thomas Bryant, Orlando Robinson, and Nikola Jovic become potential candidates for increased minutes on the court.
