Sources: Adebayo targets Monday return to Heat


After an absence of six weeks in the wake of right thumb surgery, Miami Heat All-Star center Bam Adebayo is targeting a return against the Toronto Raptors on Monday, sources told ESPN on Friday.

Adebayo has been ramping up for a return in practice, and his return comes with the Heat surging into second place in the Eastern Conference with wins in seven of their past nine games.

Adebayo, who has averaged 18.7 points and 10.2 rebounds this season, had a Dec. 5 procedure on his thumb to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament.

Without Adebayo, the Heat have benefited from solid play at center by Omer Yurtseven, who has averaged about 11 points and 14 rebounds in 10 games.
