Miami Heat's Bam Adebayo continues to be listed with right shoulder discomfort, raising concerns about his availability for the upcoming game.

Despite playing in the last three games, Adebayo remains on the team's injury report, hinting at ongoing issues with his shoulder.

However, the Heat have officially declared him as available for Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Denver Nuggets, indicating his likely participation.

Although nursing his injury, Adebayo showcased an impressive performance in Game 3, despite struggling with his shooting. He managed to contribute 22 points, 17 rebounds, and 3 assists, albeit on a 7/21 shooting performance.

Throughout the series against the Nuggets, Adebayo has been averaging solid numbers, with 23 points, 13 rebounds, and 4 assists while shooting at 47%.

Despite Adebayo's significance to the Heat and his remarkable play, he has found himself outmatched by Nikola Jokic in this series.

Jokic's extraordinary contributions of 33 points, 14 rebounds, and 9 assists per game, shooting at an impressive 59% from the field, 44% from beyond the arc, and 86% from the free-throw line, seem almost unreal.

Jokic's performance against Adebayo has been reminiscent of the legendary Wilt Chamberlain's dominance, making it a rare spectacle in today's game.

While Game 4 is not a do-or-die situation for the Miami Heat, it carries significant importance. They will strive to avoid falling into a 3-1 deficit against the Denver Nuggets in tonight's matchup, scheduled for 8:30 pm ET. 

The Heat's hopes of making a comeback in the series will heavily rely on Adebayo's ability to overcome his injury and counter Jokic's extraordinary form.
