Jimmy Butler

Miami Heat superstar Jimmy Butler missed Game 2 of the semifinals against the New York Knicks due to injury. Unsurprisingly, without their best player the Heat went on to lose by a final score of 111-105 behind 30 points from Jalen Brunson.

When Julius Randle, RJ Barrett, and company visit the Kaseya Center on Saturday to play the Heat, every Heat fan will have the same question.

Is Jimmy Butler playing in Game 3 vs. the Knicks?

The Heat have Butler listed as questionable for Saturday’s showdown. He has a right ankle sprain per the NBA’s official injury report. However, Butler’s trending towards playing ever since missing Game 2. With Game 3 right around the corner, the Heat’s star forward has been cleared to play. This is huge win for Miami.
