Update: Adebayo is in and Jovic is also in, but the Heat have now listed Lowry out due to a personal issue. Gabe Vincent could potentially start in his place.

Update: The big dominoes have fallen with Butler being available and Adebayo being probable. A few rotation guys have been cleared up as well for the Heat, who have updated this injury report quite quickly as opposed to some other times.

The Miami Heat will look to build on their win over the Minnesota Timberwolves Monday with a victory over the Los Angeles Lakers Wednesday. The Lakers are on the second night of a back-to-back set but the Heat are dealing with plenty of injuries. Here’s a look at the Miami injury report for this contest.

Heat injury report: Wednesday, Dec. 28

Jimmy Butler (ankle) - available
Bam Adebayo (shoulder) - available
Kyle Lowry (personal) - OUT
Dewayne Dedmon (foot) - OUT
Caleb Martin (ankle) - available
Gabe Vincent (knee) - available
Nikola Jovic (back) - available

Butler and Adebayo will swing the betting lines depending on their statuses. Dedmon being out means the Heat could be thin on the interior if Adebayo sits. Butler sitting would elevate Tyler Herro and Max Strus in the rotation. Martin is probable, but Vincent being in would give the Heat an additional rotation player. That’s something Miami could desperately use against a tired Lakers squad.
