The Miami Heat will be resting most of their regulars during Thursday's preseason game against the Atlanta Hawks. Bam Adebayo, Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro and Kyle Lowry are amongst the most noteworthy Heat players who will be sitting out for the game. The Heat play their preseason finale against the Boston Celtics at home on Friday. It's likely that the team's regulars will suit up for that game as a dress rehearsal of sorts for the regular season. As for the Heat team you'll see on Thursday? Micah Potter, Gabe Vincent, Max Strus and Javonte Smart are some of the notable players who haven't been ruled out for the game.
The Miami Heat will rest several of their primary players for Friday's preseason game against the San Antonio Spurs. It's the second game of a back-to-back for the team, so it's not very surprising to hear the news. Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry and Bam Adebayo are the biggest names amongst the players who will be rested for the game. All three played in Thursday's game, though none of them logged more than 20 minutes. Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson are both expected to play on Friday and they could have big scoring nights ahead of them. The duo combined for nine threes and 44 points in Thursday's game.
Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler agreed to a four-year, $184 million contract extension. The move will keep him with the team through the 2025-26 season, and it comes after the 31-year-old averaged 21.5 points, 7.1 assists, and 6.9 boards throughout 52 games last season. He is also a nightmare on the defensive end, especially after logging 2.1 steals per game last year. Still, his inability to remain healthy and poor percentage from deep are two areas that are in desperate need of improvement. Nonetheless, managers should consider Butler a top-25 fantasy option, with the potential for higher if he can remain on the court moving ahead.
Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler was horrendous from the floor throughout Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. He made 4-of-22 field goal attempts, which is not a joke. Butler could not buy a bucket in this game, but did make the layup that pushed this game into overtime. Butler scored 17 points, 10 rebounds, and eights assists in Saturday's loss. He also committed six turnovers, while Jrue Holiday deserves plenty of credit for making that happen. It was a rough time for Butler, but hopefully he'll be able to bounce back on Monday.
