Adrian Heath misses Minnesota United's game vs. LA Galaxy

Adrian Heath missed Saturday's match between his Minnesota United team and the LA Galaxy. The absence was announced by the club before the match.

According to the Galaxy's local broadcast, Heath underwent dental surgery this week and was advised by the surgeon not to travel to Los Angeles, so the head coach complied. In his stead, Minnesota United assistant coach Mark Watson served as the manager on the night, as Minnesota tried to rally late but lost 3-2 at Dignity Health Sports Park.
