Jimmy Butler News
Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler (quad) is now listed as available on the injury report despite the right quadriceps contusion that he's dealing with. He was able to play north of 32 minutes in each of the last two games, so this contusion doesn't seem too serious at the moment. With Butler still in the lineup, Gabe Vincent and Max Strus' fantasy value will be limited as they come off of the bench. Miami is going to need their starters as much as possible as they cling to just a one-game advantage over the New York Knicks to avoid the play-in tournament.
Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler had another productive offensive outing with a team-high 28 points in Sunday's loss to Charlotte, missing only three of his 14 shot attempts and going 6-for-7 at the foul line. He also led the team with seven rebounds and had two assists with three steals in 33 minutes. The veteran star has shown off some incredible shooting form lately, going 62.5 percent from the field across his last seven outings. He has also averaged 2.0 steals over the span, so Butler continues to do the business at both ends regularly.
Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler returned from a one-game absence with a game-high 29 points in Friday's 110-105 win over Orlando, adding six rebounds, six assists and two steals. He missed both of his attempts from deep but shot a solid 10-for-17 overall from the field with a 9-for-12 record at the line. Butler was a late scratch Tuesday against Boston with lower back tightness, but he had no problems carrying his team here, so it looks like he has shaken off the issue completely. A very favorable matchup against the Hornets is now coming up for Butler and the Heat. He has averaged 27.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.0 assists against them this season.
Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler (back) will not play Tuesday against the Boston Celtics. Butler was a late scratch as he experienced some lower back tightness ahead of the game. Miami may be playing it safe with Butler as the Celtics are missing most of their starters and Butler has been prone to injuries over his career. Victor Oladipo and Max Strus should see increased roles on Tuesday while Bam Adebayo should see a larger role on offense.
