UPDATE: Adebayo will be available to play tonight vs. the Hawks.
For Heat tonight vs. Hawks:— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) December 10, 2019
Bam Adebayo (groin): Available.
KZ Okpala (Achilles): Available.
Derrick Jones Jr. (illness): Available.
Goran Dragic (groin), Justise Winslow (back), Dion Waiters (illness) already ruled out.
Daryl Macon back from G League.
Bam was upgraded to probable earlier in the day and will play, which is good news for fantasy owners. Don’t be hesitant to roll out Adebayo in all formats, DFS and fantasy basketball. Derrick Jones Jr. (illness) is also available and he’s a decent value option on DraftKings at $3,600.
Winslow and Dragic still out for Heat tonight vs. Atlanta. Macon returning to join team. Adebayo probable. Dion questionable.— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) December 10, 2019
The Heat will also be without guards Justise Winslow and Goran Dragic again, while Dion Waiters (illness) could return and make his season debut. So chances are the Heat will go into this matchup with the same rotation they’ve had recently.
Fantasy Basketball Analysis: Miami Heat C Bam Adebayo
Being as Bam is healthy and good to go tonight, he’s a great fantasy option in season-long and DFS. On DraftKings, he’s $8,200 and has a great matchup vs. Atlanta. Adebayo has posted back-to-back double-doubles with at least 20 points and 13 rebounds. That was good for over 50 DKFP in each game, so that’s the type of ceiling we’re working with tonight. Kelly Olynyk and Meyers Leonard are both viable value plays in DFS, and aren’t bad streamers in deep season-long leagues.
