With Jimmy Butler set to rejoin his teammates on Friday, the Heat will gain some clarity on a key question: Has the gap between last year’s Eastern Conference finalists widened to the point that their records would suggest? Or is the Heat (10-12) still positioned to be competitive with Boston (18-4) should the teams meet again in the postseason? Butler was set to join the Heat in Boston on Thursday evening after missing seven games with a knee injury; Miami listed him as questionable for the game. -via Miami Herald / December 1, 2022
