Adebayo was ruled out with a neck injury. Dragic is out with a torn left plantar fascia. Both were injured in Game 1, and neither played in Miami’s Game 2 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
The decision on Adebayo and Dragic was made about two hours before game time. Both arrived at the arena with their teammates, and Adebayo has been lobbying the team with hopes of letting him play.
“The injury bug hit us at the wrong time,” Heat forward Jae Crowder said.
The Heat trail the series 2-0. Game 4 is Tuesday night.
