UPDATE: Feb. 7, 2:27 p.m. — Butler has been ruled out of Friday’s game vs. the Kings. The Heat also won’t have new additions in Andre Iguodala, Jae Crowder or Solomon Hill, per coach Erik Spoelstra.
Spo said Jimmy Butler’s MRI came back clean. Unclear if he plays again on the trip. #HeatTwitter— Andre Fernandez (@FernandezAndreC) February 7, 2020
It is being called a "strained" right shoulder for Jimmy Butler, and his night is complete.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) February 6, 2020
It’s good timing as the Heat just traded for Andre Iguodala, potentially in a three-team deal with the Grizzlies and Thunder. Miami may also be adding F Danilo Gallinari, though nothing is confirmed. We aren’t sure if Butler will miss time, but if he does we could see Iggy get big minutes right away. He hasn’t played an NBA game since last year’s playoffs, but he also is 100% healthy as far as we’re concerned.
Kendrick Nunn and Duncan Robinson would have to play more minutes and see more offensive looks if Butler’s injury keeps him out.
