Heat's Jimmy Butler: Stuffs stat sheet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler went for 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-3 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and a block in 45 minutes during Sunday's 106-93 loss against the Lakers in Game 6 of the 2020 NBA Finals.

Butler was unable to have the same impact he had in Game 5, where he finished with a triple-double, although the star forward was Miami's most impactful player during the Finals. In fact, he paced the Heat in points (22.2), assists (6.0) and steals (2.0) per game during the team's entire playoff run.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Posts triple-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler finished with 35 points (11-19 FG, 1-3 3PT, 12-12), 12 rebounds, 11 assists and five steals in Friday's Game 5 win over the Lakers.

It was another magnificent performance from Butler, who once again outdueled LeBron James in the fourth quarter. Both All-Stars were excellent, but Butler repeatedly got to the free throw line and was able to score over Markieff Morris at will. Butler played 47 of a possible 48 minutes and also added one block.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Sniffs triple-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler posted 22 points (8-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 10 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and a block in 43 minutes during Tuesday's 102-96 loss against the Lakers in Game 4 of the 2020 NBA Finals.

Butler was coming off a 40-point triple-double in Game 3, but the star forward has sniffed that feat in each of the last three games -- he ended two boards shy of accomplishing that feat in Game 2, and just one dime away from doing it Tuesday. Butler has embraced a bigger responsibility in the playmaking department with Goran Dragic (foot) sidelined and that should be the case once again in Game 5, where he should be a strong bet to post another stat-stuffing performance given his high usage percentage during the current series.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Puts up 40-point triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler had 40 points (14-20 FG, 12-14 FT), 13 assists, 11 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Sunday's Game 3 win over the Lakers.

In a game the Heat controlled from start to finish, Butler was far and away the best player on the floor. Butler hit a game-high 14 field goals, many of which came on drives to the rim as the Lakers refused to send a double-team. Butler outdueled LeBron James down the stretch, scoring 10 points and helping force a number of difficult looks on the defensive end. Butler's 13 assists matched his total from Game 2, and he now has 31 total assists for the series.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Posts double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler registered 25 points (7-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 11-12 FT), 13 assists, eight rebounds and a steal in 45 minutes during Friday's 124-114 loss against the Lakers in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Butler suffered what appeared to be a nasty ankle sprain in Game 1, but that didn't stop him from logging 45 minutes in Game 2 while finishing just two rebounds away from what would've been his first triple-double of the current postseason run. Butler assumed most of the playmaking duties with Goran Dragic (foot) out and that's likely to continue in Game 3 if the Slovenian is out, which might result in an increase of his playmaking figures but a potential reduction of his scoring numbers, even if that wasn't the case Friday.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Says he will play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (ankle) said he will play during Friday's Game 2 against the Lakers, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Butler suffered what appeared to be a significant ankle injury during Game 1; he had it wrapped during Thursday's media availability. However, Butler won't sit out Game 2. His presence is especially important since Goran Dragic (foot) and Bam Adebayo (shoulder) also suffered injuries and are doubtful for Friday.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Scores team-high 23 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler had 23 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five assists, two rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 116-98 Game 1 loss to the Lakers.

Butler suffered a sprained ankle as time wound down to end the first half, although he was able to return to the court. As well as Butler's injury, the Heat also lost Goran Dragic (foot) and Bam Adebayo (shoulder), and so the result of this one was never really in doubt. There has been no indication as to the availability of all three players ahead of Game 2 on Friday. Based on the reporting thus far, they should be considered questionable at best.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Fills out stat sheet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler finished with 17 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), eight assists, eight rebounds, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Friday's 121-108 Game 5 loss to the Celtics.

Butler had a strong Game 5, scoring efficiently while stuffing the stat sheet, collecting at least eight rebounds for a third straight contest. In the series, he's now averaging 18.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 2.4 combined steals-plus-blocks.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Scores 24 despite shooting woes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler registered 24 points (8-20 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 39 minutes during Wednesday's Game 4 win over the Celtics.

The good news is that Butler surpassed the 20-point plateau for the first time in his last six playoff games; the bad news is that he continues to be a non-factor from deep, having made just 33.3 percent of his treys during that six-game stretch despite averaging 18.2 points per contest. That's a startling drop-off in accuracy from Butler's first seven games of this postseason, during which he made exactly half his three-point attempts. He'll look to find a happy medium as the Heat attempt to close out this series in Friday's Game 5.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Stuffs stat sheet in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler registered 20 points (7-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 43 minutes during Tuesday's Game 1 overtime win over the Celtics.

Butler has yet to surpass the 20-point plateau in any of his last three games -- something he did four times in his first seven playoff contests -- but he is also providing enough value with his contributions across the board, as he has recorded at least five rebounds and/or at least five assists in each of his last five playoff contests. His ability to stuff the stat sheet while scoring at a high level makes him a valuable fantasy option regardless of the format. For what is worth, Butler is averaging 21.6 points per game, which is a step forward compared to the 19.9 points per game he averaged during the regular season.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Double-double clinches series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler finished with 17 points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 10 boards, six assists, and one steal in 37 minutes of a 103-94 win against Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Butler was efficient in his series-clinching effort, doing most of his damage by getting to the line and then making his free throws. Miami fell behind in the first quarter before Butler led his team on a strong run in the second to take control of the game. Butler looks like he's finally unlocking his full potential as he's now led Miami to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Shooting cools off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler finished with 17 points (6-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five boards, two assists and two steals in 39 minutes of a 118-115 overtime loss to Milwaukee on Sunday.

Butler saw his hot shooting cool off against the Bucks in Game 4 and he wasn't able to get to the line as often in a game where the Bucks' backs was against the wall. Butler had been the focal point of the Heat's offense, providing the energy to propel them to a 3-0 series lead, but he faded into the background in the game-four loss. He'll try to bounce back in Tuesday's Game 5.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Scores 30 points in Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler finished with 30 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 14-19 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and a steal in 35 minutes during Friday's Game 3 win over the Bucks.

Butler scored 17 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, and he played a key role in Miami outscoring the Bucks 40-13 in the final 12 minutes of action. Butler has been the engine of the Heat on both sides of the floor during the current series, averaging 27.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game in the first three contests of the current Eastern Conference semifinals.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Scores 13 as Heat go up 2-0
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler had 13 points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT) and six assists in Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Bucks.

Butler was considerably quieter in Game 2 after he put up 40 in the Heat's Game 1 victory, but he continues to set the tone for Miami on both ends of the floor. Butler led the team in minutes (36) and added three steals to his final line.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Torches Bucks in Game 1 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler finished with 40 points (13-20 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 12-13 FT), four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes during Monday's 115-104 victory over the Bucks.

Butler took his game to another level, scoring 27 of his 40 points in the second half. It was a career playoff high for Butler, much of which came from his mid-range game. Philadelphia fans have to be wondering where this was last season, although it just goes to show how much of an effect a solid organization can have on a player's mindset and productivity. Butler and the Heat will look to extend their series lead in Game 2 on Wednesday.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Returns to court Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (shoulder) is returning to Monday's Game 4 against the Pacers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Butler went down with a left shoulder injury during the first quarter of this playoff contest, but he's back on the court to start the second half. The Marquette product went scoreless on two shots before departing the game, but he's likely to see his share of shooting opportunities the rest of the way.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Questionable to return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler is questionable to return to Monday's Game 4 against Indiana due to a left shoulder strain.

Butler apparently suffered the injury during the first quarter, as the forward logged six minutes and went 0-for-2 from the floor before his early exit. Andre Iguodala will likely see plenty of extra minutes while Butler remains on the sidelines.

Heat's Jimmy Butler: Scores team-high 28 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler went for 28 points (8-15 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 10-12 FT), four assists, four steals, three rebounds and two blocks in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 113-101 Game 1 win over the Pacers.

Butler got some much-needed rest in the regular season finale against the Pacers, and the star forward looked fresh and active on both ends of the court in this playoff opener. Butler is a good bet to fill the stat sheet on any given game, and the veteran small forward should remain a key contributor for the Heat on both ends of the court during the team's entire playoff run.

August 18, 2020 02:40 PM
Heat's Jimmy Butler: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (foot) is not on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's Game 1 against Indiana.

As expected, Butler will return to action for Game 1 after he was held out of the team's final seeding game Friday. Miami was careful with Butler's workload throughout seeding play, especially after soreness in his right foot caused him to miss three straight games between Aug. 6 and Aug. 8.

August 14, 2020 06:24 PM
Heat's Jimmy Butler: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (foot) is out Friday against the Pacers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Butler, who has been dealing with a sore foot, will take a seat for the Heat's final seeding game against their upcoming playoff opponent, the Pacers. Plenty of other key players for Miami are unavailable, so coach Erik Spoelstra will be leaning heavily on his deep bench.
