He sustained the injury during a 120-111 loss to the visiting Denver Nuggets on Nov. 29.

Miami's first-round pick (14th overall) in 2017, Adebayo has averaged 12.7 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 3.5 assists in 305 career games (201 starts). He was an All-Star in 2019-20 and made the NBA All-Defensive second team in both 2019-20 and 2020-21.
