Top Jimmy Butler News

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Questionable Monday

    Butler (tailbone) is questionable for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

    Butler has played 30-plus minutes in each of his last six appearances, but he apparently sustained a bruised tailbone in Saturday's win over the Bulls. Max Strus and Caleb Martin should see increased run if Butler is unavailable.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Contributes across the board in win

    Butler closed Saturday's 107-104 win over the Bulls with 18 points (6-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, five assists and five steals over 36 minutes.

    Butler can take over a game offensively on any given night, but that hasn't been happening of late and he's now failed to reach the 20-point mark in each of his last three contests. He supplies that lack of scoring -- based on his standards -- with solid contributions in other categories, though, so even if he's not being a 20-point scorer on a consistent basis, he remains an excellent fantasy play due to his ability to contribute across the board.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Quiet in surprising loss

    Butler totaled 16 points (5-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and one steal across 39 minutes during Wednesday's 113-101 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Butler attempted just nine field goals, highlighting just how well the Timberwolves were able to contain him. The fact this can be viewed as a sub-par performance demonstrates how impressive Butler has been this season. The Heat are once again a force to be reckoned with this season, and so despite this loss, Butler should be able to maintain similar value the rest of the way.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Shines at both ends Thursday

    Butler had 32 points (11-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 10-10 FT), three rebounds, five assists and four steals in 34 minutes during Thursday's 112-97 win over Washington.

    Butler couldn't repeat what he did against the Pelicans on Wednesday when he recorded a triple-double, but he was proficient on both ends of the court and posted his second-best scoring output of the campaign. While Butler is valuable for his ability to stuff the stat sheet and contribute in a number of categories, his upside increases when he decides to accept a bigger role on offense. On that same note, Butler has scored at least 30 points in three of his last four games.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Returns with triple-double in win

    Butler totaled 31 points (10-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 10-12 FT), 10 rebounds, 10 assists and one block in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 113-98 win over New Orleans.

    The 32-year-old missed the previous three games with an ankle sprain, but he showed no rust despite the absence and powered the offense with Kyle Lowry (rest) and Bam Adebayo (knee) unavailable. It's the fourth time this season Butler has surpassed the 30-point mark and the third occasion he's recorded double-digit rebounds.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Good to go Wednesday

    Butler (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Butler was considered questionable after missing the past three games with a sprained right ankle, but he'll retake the court Wednesday. He could carry a heavier offensive workload than usual with Kyle Lowry (rest) and Bam Adebayo (knee) sitting out.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Questionable Wednesday

    Butler (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Won't play Monday

    Butler (ankle) will not play Monday at Oklahoma City.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Questionable Monday

    Butler (ankle) is questionable at Oklahoma City on Monday, according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.

    Butler is suffering from an ankle sprain that forced him to sit out the Heat's last two games. If he's unavailable again, Tyler Herro will be the primary beneficiary of Butler's absence. The 21-year-old averaged 25.0 points and 7.5 rebounds across his two starts in place of Butler.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Out Saturday

    Butler (ankle) is out at Utah on Saturday, according to Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune.

    Butler will sit out a second straight game because of an ankle sprain. Tyler Herro logged a start when the Heat superstar had been unavailable during the previous matchup. Max Strus, Gabe Vincent and Caleb Martin received 17-plus minutes of playing time while Butler was out.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Questionable Saturday

    Butler (ankle) is officially listed as questionable ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Jazz, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Butler was forced out of Wednesday's game against the Lakers after spraining his ankle and subsequently sat out Thursday's second night of a back-to-back set. He'll presumably be a true game-time decision, so more clarity regarding his status is unlikely to be gained until closer to tip-off. Tyler Herro would again be in line for an extended role should he be unable to go, while Caleb Martin and Gabe Vincent could also see increased roles.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Officially out Thursday

    Butler (ankle) will not play in Thursday's game against the Clippers, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    As anticipated, Butler will be held out on the second half of the back-to-back set after he departed Wednesday night's overtime loss to the Lakers with a sprained right ankle. The injury occurred during the second quarter, and Butler was held out of the entire second half, as well as overtime. Expect Tyler Herro to handle more of the offensive burden Thursday, while Caleb Martin and Gabe Vincent could also be set for larger roles.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Will not return Wednesday

    Butler (ankle) will not return to Wednesday's contest against the Lakers.

    Butler sprained his right ankle in the first half of the matchup and will not return. The veteran forward should be considered questionable at best for the second half of the Heat's back-to-back set Thursday against the Clippers.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Posts massive stat line

    Butler provided 31 points (10-18 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 9-11 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and a blocked shot across 38 minutes in Monday's 113-96 loss to the Nuggets.

    Butler's superb evening wasn't enough to overcome Denver's productive offense, but the loss doesn't cloud what's been an excellent start of the season for the All-Star and his teammates. Butler has been red-hot over the first 10 games of the season, averaging 25.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Another 20-point performance

    Butler posted 27 points (11-15 FG, 5-6 FT), six assists and three rebounds across 36 minutes in Saturday's win over Utah.

    Butler reached the 20-point mark for the fifth game in a row and while Tyler Herro has grabbed most of the headlines when it comes to the Heat, Butler has been extremely consistent while stuffing the stat sheet on a regular basis. Butler is averaging 25.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.6 steals per game across that aforementioned five-game stretch.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Hyper-aggressive in win

    Butler tallied 23 points (4-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 15-17 FT), six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block in 33 minutes of action Tuesday, as the Heat beat the Mavericks 125-110.

    Butler's strong scoring line was boosted by drawing fouls and getting to the charity stripe. He hadn't attempted this many free throws in a game since the 2019 season. After averaging 21.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 5.5 assists last season, Butler is continuing that production to the tune of 25.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 5.7 assists this season.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Stuffs stat sheet again

    Butler recorded 27 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 10-11 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and three steals across 30 minutes in Saturday's win over Memphis.

    Butler has scored at least 27 points in three of his last four games, but he's been doing more than just scoring thus far and has made his presence felt on both ends of the court -- though that has been one of his trademarks in recent years. Butler also has two double-doubles on the year and has dished out at least five assists in all but one of his six contests. He's averaging 25.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game through six appearances.
