Beijing time on October 1, the Heat lost 98-116 in the first game of the finals
The Heat did not give Dragic's future plans for a truce. They only said that they would continue to evaluate his injury, and have not ruled out the possibility that he will continue to play in the finals. He will be chilled and treated from tomorrow, and his current state is "daily observation".
But a plantar fascia tear is not a good injury in one or two days. Last year, Brogdon missed the battle for nearly two months. Of course, the injuries of the two are not necessarily of the same degree. Dragic is the Heat's leading scorer in the playoffs. If he can't continue to play in the finals, the Heat will inevitably suffer.
However, it is worth mentioning that a reporter revealed that Dragic did not wear protective boots when he left the arena.
In addition to Dragic, both Adebayor and Butler were injured.
Adebayor suffered a shoulder injury in the third quarter, and then he retired and received an X-ray examination. Fortunately, the result was negative, which meant there was no serious muscle problem.
Butler sprained his ankle. He also said that he was a little sore after the game, but he still didn't want to use the injury as an excuse. And he also said: "Regardless of whether (Drazic) can play next, we must be prepared, we are capable of winning."
But some experts have said that if Dragic and Adebayor are both affected by injuries, then there is really no possibility for the Heat to win this series.
