NBA Finals 2020: Goran Dragic suffers torn plantar fascia in left foot, will be re-evaluated before Game 2

Injuries were the story of Game 1 for the Miami Heat with Bam Adebayo, Jimmy Butler and Gordan Dragic all banged up following their 116-98 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Dragic's injury appears to be of most concern, with the Heat's starting point guard suffering a torn plantar fascia in left foot, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Encouragingly, Dragic left the arena without the use of a walking boot, per Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes and is set to be re-evaluated ahead of Game 2.

"I don't know right now. I know he's as tough as anybody and it's the Finals, but I don't have an update where he is on his foot right now," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said postgame.

Jimmy Butler appeared to tweak his ankle trying to score against Anthony Davis on a drive to the basket as the first half was winding down but played through the injury, finishing with a team-high 23 points and five assists.

The injury appeared to still bother him in the second half, telling reporters postgame it was a "little bit sore".

"I'll be OK. Some treatment, and get ready to go again. I think I gotta be ready to go, so we'll see how it feels tomorrow, but I'm gonna be fine," he said.

It only got worse from there for the Heat with Bam Adebayo injuring his shoulder in the third quarter.

After colliding with Dwight Howard as he drove into the lane with 7:03 remaining in the period, he left the game and did not return.

"We'll re-evaluate him tomorrow and see where we are," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters following the loss.

The good news for the Heat: X-rays on Adebayo's shoulder strain reportedly came back negative, however, his status for Game 2 remains unclear.
