Goran Dragic reveals two Heat players didn’t go to Orlando
While speaking to reporters during a conference call on Friday, Miami Heat veteran point guard Goran Dragic revealed that two players from the team aren’t in Orlando, Florida at the moment.
The two players are center Bam Adebayo and combo guard Kendrick Nunn.
Goran Dragic just said Bam Adebayo and Kendrick Nunn are not with the team. "Hopefully Bam can come and KNunn and we can be a whole team and make some damage.” Two Heat players remained behind due to COVID testing. Heat did not identify the players left back.

Dragic and the Heat will continue workouts for the next week, with their scrimmage schedule set to open on July 22 against the Sacramento Kings.
Once the eight seeding games start, the Heat will face the Denver Nuggets, Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns, Indiana Pacers (twice) and Oklahoma City Thunder. All NBA fans are eager for that Miami-Indiana game, as Jimmy Butler and Pacers wing TJ Warren have some beef to settle.
Before the season was suspended in March, Adebayo was averaging 16.2 points, 10.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists for the Heat. The athletic specimen made his first All-Star team in 2019-20. Bam also shot 56.7 percent from the field and 69.0 percent from the free-throw line.
As for Nunn, he was one of the best stories in the NBA this year. The Chicago native, who went undrafted out of Oakland, started for the Heat in the 62 games he played in and put up 15.6 points, 2.7 boards and 3.4 assists. He has an incredibly bright future since his worth ethic is off the charts.
