Injury Update Miami Heat vs. Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks were looking terrific until the final few minutes of Monday night’s game 4 loss to the Miami Heat.

All-star Giannis Antetokounmpo played in Game 4 after missing the previous two games due to a lower back injury sustained early in Game 1.

Despite hints of pain, the superstar forward played 38 minutes and should not be limited if he is upgraded to availability Wednesday.

And he looked like Giannis, scoring 26 points, grabbing 10 rebounds, and dishing out 13 assists. But then Jimmy Butler took over and delivered an all-time great performance as the Bucks lost a 101-89 lead with about 6 minutes remaining, leaving Miami startled – and behind 3-1 in their first-round playoff series.

Meanwhile, Khris Middleton is still doing a good job leading the Bucks while Giannis is out with an injury. Of course, his position will be drastically diminished once Giannis returns, but expect the set to continue. When the Heat are up 3-1 in the first series, this hot combination helps the Bucks overcome obstacles.

What else can you do than stare in awe? On Monday night, Jimmy Butler delivered an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping effort, scoring 56 points to lead Miami to a 119-114 come-from-behind victory. The Heat now lead the series 3-1 and are poised to stun the No. 1 seeded Bucks in the first round.

Butler’s 56 points are the fourth most ever scored in an NBA playoff game. And it was an efficient 56 points, as he shot 19 of 28 from the field and 15 of 18 from the free throw line. And he hit several clutch jumpers down the line as the Heat rallied from a 12-point deficit with approximately 6 minutes remaining.

Bam Adebayo had 15 points and 8 rebounds in the win, and Caleb Martin had 12 points and 9 rebounds. Tyler Herro and Victor Oladipo are still on the bench.

Due to a hamstring strain, Bam Adebayo is expected to play in Game 5 on Wednesday, according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.

Adebayo suffered a mild hamstring strain in Game 3 and was ruled out for Game 4. He played 30 minutes in Monday’s triumph and finished with 15 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block.
