Bam Adebayo Season Outlook 18-19

Recommended Posts

Wow question is if he will get unleaded.

 

He probably can't play next to Whiteside much can he?

How do you guys expect the time share to work out this year? And what kind of projections do you have for Bam over the season?

Very hard to tell. Tonight he was huge with all the regulars out. The other night he played 25 minutes and did little when the regulars played. I was gonna grab him with my open spot, but opted for Isaac just due to the fact that isaac did some damage despite the regulars playing. 

 

I hate this time of the year when we don't know  who our dead weight is yet! I wanna add just in case as Whiteside insurance. Miami really needs to make a trade

It’ll be really hard to add him with Whiteside in there fully healthy. It’s exactly like the “Dwight/Gortat” situation when they were both still in Orlando. That said, keep your ears close to the ground since Miami is trying to get Butler and Bam was one of the pieces Minnesota wanted.

Don’t forget that Olynyk also plays at the 5 as well when they go small.

Picked him up and drop poeltl. I'll take a chance on the guy

 

Poeltl will have more minutes than Bam Adebayo.

Just adding some context.. In their previous game on Monday Bam only played 25 minutes because majority of the starters didnt play in the 4th. (Goran, Whiteside etc.)

Not necessarily true.  San Antonio has Gasol and LMA who will also play minutes at center in small-ball lineups with Gay at PF.

 

Miami on the other hand with James Johnson out seems they will be starting Olynck at PF, which at the moment will give Bam all the backup minutes behind Whiteside.  Remains to be seen what will happen when James Johnson returns.  Either way I don't see Whiteside playing over 26 minutes / game (even with as good as he's looked in preseason).  Whiteside is also quite injury and foul prone.  Bam at minimum is a must-own handcuff if you own Whitside.

If Whiteside gets moved or injured then I'm on Big Bam in a heartbeat. But until then unfortunately he won't get enough minutes to make an impact in standard leagues. Keep an eye out for him though because I feel like Whiteside's days in Miami are numbered.

Not bad opening game for him. Played some minutes with Whiteside and played way better than Olynyk. If you are looking for a speculative big man add, he is also playing tomorrow.
