Bam Adebayo opened up about being medically cleared to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Adebayo missed Games 2 and 3 due to injuries in the neck and left shoulder.
The big man of the Miami told Rachel Nichols of ESPN that in order to get medically cleared by the team’s medical staff, he was asked to do at least one push-up.
He did it and, therefore, he returned to Miami lineup for Game 4.
The Lakers lead the series 2-1.
Bam Adebayo back in the starting lineup. Bam told me he‘d tried to convince the medical staff he could play in Game 3, but when they asked him to do a push-up…it didn’t go well. When they asked him again today – success. pic.twitter.com/ctGRgnVgBm
