The Miami Heat could be without two of their most important players for Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic are each doubtful to play because of injuries, according to the team.

Adebayo has been fighting injuries throughout the playoffs, but this latest ailment is a neck strain that he suffered in the team’s Game 1 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday night.

Dragic reportedly suffered a torn plantar fascia in that defeat and is also unlikely to play.

The Heat will try to bounce back Friday night in Game 2. Coverage on Local 10 begins at 8 p.m. with “Countdown to Tipoff.”
