The other two?
Goran Dragic revealed that Bam Adebayo and Kendrick Nunn are the players who are not with the team.
“Hopefully Bam can come and K-Nunn and we can be a whole team and make some damage,” Dragic said. “Some guys are not here. We are eager, expecting them to come, hopefully to be healthy and we can all start practicing together.”
Did Adebayo and Nunn test positive for coronavirus? Not necessarily. They could be absent for other reasons. But there’s obviously some circumstantial evidences.
That people are forced to connect these dots is an indictment of the NBA, which has shown a troubling lack of transparency around its restart.
Adebayo is an All-Star – a two-way big who plays versatile defense and contributes so many ways offensively (finishing, screening, passing). He’d be a huge loss. Nobody on the Heat could come close to duplicating his varied contributions.
Of course, Adebayo and Nunn might join the team soon. There’s far more we don’t know than know.
