121-99, although the Heat beat the Bucks at home, they also paid a painful price. When Oladipo made a breakthrough with about 4 minutes left in the last quarter, he was suspected to have been pushed behind by Potis, which caused him to fall to the ground. Oladipo held his left knee for a long time and could not stand up. Finally, he was put out by the staff. Visually, the injury was not optimistic.
Oladipo’s career is rather bumpy. He has been wandering after a serious injury and failed to recover to the pre-injury level. He likes the team culture of the Heat and finally joined the Heat in the middle of the 2020-21 season. Now, at the age of 30, he is at the peak of his career theoretically, but obviously, the injury is not friendly to him.
Oladipo is not the absolute main force in this heat team, but the heat team needs him especially at this time. Hiro has undergone surgery on his right hand because of a broken finger and is expected to miss at least six weeks, which means that the Heat need to reach the finals before Hiro can return to the team. However, with the strength of the Heat, it is really difficult to rush out of the East this season, not to mention a hero who averages 20.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists in regular games.
At this time, the Heat certainly needed a substitute like Oladipo to come forward, but in the third game of the series, Oladipo was also injured.
Butler scored 30 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, made 12 of 19 shots, and made 4 of 4 three-pointers, which is the biggest contributor to the Heat’s victory. But in the third quarter, Butler also suffered two heavy falls, one of which was a hard back landing, which took him a long time to get up and missed an offensive round. After that, he limped back to the locker room, and when he returned to the bench in the fourth quarter, his waist and buttocks were wrapped in thick ice packs.
Butler has always been known as a tough guy, and Butler in the playoffs is really bloody enough to be slightly injured. After the game, the Heat officially issued a tweet: Butler suffered a bruise on his hip and his back was not injured. Fortunately, it’s okay to be a star.
To put it bluntly, Hiro was basically reimbursed this season; Oladipo was put out, not optimistic; Butler’s hips are also wrapped up, and it is certainly false to say that there is no influence; It’s even more difficult for the Heat, which is already a pile of draft picks. At this time, we can only pray that the injury will get worse and the Heat will have better luck!
