Adebayo has missed the last six weeks after undergoing surgery on his right thumb in December. The 24-year-old forward has reportedly been ramping up his conditioning for a return in practice, which comes as the Heat jumped the Brooklyn Nets (26-15) for second place in the Eastern Conference after winning seven of their last nine games.
When he last played, Adebayo averaged 18.7 points and 10.2 rebounds this season.
