  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Scores season-high 37 points

    Butler notched 37 points (12-19 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 10-11 FT), three rebounds, seven assists, one block and one steal over 36 minutes during Saturday's 126-120 victory over the Jazz.

    Butler carried the Heat to victory Saturday, scoring a season-high 37 points. He has now tallied at least 20 points in four straight games, a welcome sight for fantasy managers. While the risk of missed games is an ongoing concern, Butler typically increases his production down the stretch. As long as he can stay on the floor, Butler could be a sneaky top-20 asset moving forward.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Scores 21 points in loss

    Butler posted 21 points (7-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-9 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal across 40 minutes during Thursday's 103-97 loss to the Nuggets.

    Butler's consistency despite missing games here and there has been remarkable, and the veteran forward has reached the 20-point mark in nine of his last 10 games without sacrificing his contributions in other categories. Over that 10-game stretch, the star wing is averaging 23.6 points, 7.5 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 2.2 blocks across 34.8 minutes per contest.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Leads team to win in return

    Butler closed with 22 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-9 FT), four rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and four steals in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 106-96 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Butler missed Miami's previous game while serving a suspension for his role in the altercation between the Heat and Pelicans last Friday. The star forward didn't miss a beat in his return Tuesday, complementing an efficient scoring line with strong work as a distributor and defender. Butler's four steals marked a season high, and he fell one assist shy of his fifth double-double of the campaign.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Available Tuesday

    Butler (suspension) is available for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Tim Reynolds of Associated Press reports.

    Butler and Nikola Jovic will both suit up after serving one-game suspensions Monday for their involvement in an on-court altercation during Friday's win over the Pelicans. Terry Rozier (knee) is also cleared to make his return following a multi-game absence, while Tyler Herro (knee) remains out. Butler shouldn't face any limitations versus Portland.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Suspended for Monday's game

    The NBA suspended Butler on Sunday for one game without pay for instigating and engaging in an on-court altercation during Friday's win over the Pelicans. He'll serve the suspension during Monday's matchup in Sacramento.

    Butler, Naji Marshall and Nikola Jovic have each been suspended for one game, while Thomas Bryant and Jose Alvarado will miss three contests for their involvement in the incident. Butler's next chance to play will come Tuesday in Portland, while Duncan Robinson, Jaime Jaquez and Caleb Martin are candidates for increased roles versus the Kings.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Gets ejected in return to action

    Butler (personal) recorded 23 points (7-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 8-12 FT), nine rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block across 27 minutes in Friday's game against the Pelicans before he was ejected with 11:19 remaining in the fourth quarter for getting into altercation with New Orleans' Naji Marshall.

    Butler had missed the Heat's final three games before the All-Star break while tending to a personal matter, but he returned to action Friday and was on his way to delivering an outstanding stat line prior to his ejection, aside from some uncharacteristically poor free-throw shooting on heavy volume. The ejection stemmed from Heat center Kevin Love grabbing the Pelicans' Zion Williamson to prevent a layup, after Williamson had stolen the ball from Butler. Williamson fell to the floor, resulting in Butler and Marshall getting into a tussle and receiving ejections while also sparking a melee that saw Heat center Thomas Bryant and Pelicans guard Jose Alvarado also being tossed from the contest. No punches were thrown in the altercation, so Butler isn't expected to face a suspension due to the ejection. Butler and the Heat will be back in action Monday in Sacramento.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Set to play Friday

    Butler (personal) will be available for Friday's game versus the Pelicans, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Butler missed Miami's final three contests prior to the All-Star break following the death of a family member, but he's rejoined the Heat and will be ready to go as Miami opens its second-half schedule. Butler is averaging 21.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.8 steals in 34.1 minutes across his last 10 appearances.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Back at practice Thursday

    Butler (personal) participated in Thursday's practice session, Tim Reynolds of Associated Press reports.

    Butler was unavailable for Miami's final three games before the All-Star break due to the death of a family member, but he rejoined the Heat at practice Thursday. The team hasn't yet revealed his status for Friday's game against the Pelicans, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Butler available.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Out through All-Star break

    Butler (personal) won't join the Heat for the team's two-game road trip Tuesday in Milwaukee and Wednesday in Philadelphia, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Butler was granted a leave of absence from the team over the weekend following the death of a family matter. After he wasn't in attendance for Sunday's 110-106 loss to the Celtics, Butler will remain away from the team for its road trip to close out the pre-All-Star-break portion of the schedule. With Josh Richardson (shoulder) out indefinitely and Terry Rozier (knee) uncertain to be available for the back-to-back set, the Heat could be forced to rely heavily on Tyler Herro, Jaime Jaquez, Duncan Robinson and Caleb Martin to fill out minutes at the guard and forward spots.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Out Sunday, granted leave from team

    Butler (personal) won't play Sunday versus Boston.

    According to a statement from his agent, Bernie Lee, Butler has been granted a leave of absence from the team following the death of a family member. The Heat will likely give Butler as much time as he needs away from the team to address the personal matter, making it uncertain if he'll be available for Miami's road back-to-back set Tuesday and Wednesday in Milwaukee and Philadelphia, respectively, to close out the pre-All-Star-break schedule. Miami will likely reopen a spot in the rotation for Haywood Highsmith on Sunday while Butler sits out, and Jaime Jaquez, Duncan Robinson and Caleb Martin are all candidates to absorb some of Butler's minutes.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Questionable for Sunday

    Butler is isted as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Celtics for personal reasons, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Butler missed Friday's practice due to personal reasons but is hopeful to play against Boston. Some combination of Duncan Robinson, Jaime Jaquez, Haywood Highsmith and Caleb Martin would presumably absorb the star wing's minutes if he is ultimately unable to go.
