Ryan McDonough: Tremendous news for Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat Butler, who was helped off the court last night vs Golden State, has a minor ankle sprain He’s expected to return to the Heat lineup soon - possibly within the next week or so, per a league source
Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler injured his right ankle late in the third quarter against the Golden State Warriors and will be evaluated on Tuesday. "He turned it," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the Warriors beat the Heat 115-108. "If you talk to Jimmy right now, he says he's fine. "We will have to evaluate it and see how he feels."
Butler was assisted to the locker room with 3:14 left in the third period after twisting his right ankle on a drive, not fouled on the play. The Heat were down 80-74 when he exited. It was the same ankle that Butler sprained late in last Tuesday’s victory over the Washington Wizards, an injury that would have kept him out the following night had that game against the San Antonio Spurs not been postponed. “If you talk to Jimmy right now, he says he’s fine,” Spoelstra said. “We’ll have to evaluate him.” The Heat next play on Wednesday night in Portland. “It’s one of those things where he played through this before,” Lowry said of Butler. “Hopefully we should be getting some guys back.”
Anthony Chiang: Jimmy Butler back in the Heat's starting lineup. Gabe Vincent starting in place of Kyle Lowry and Omer Yurtseven starting in place of Dewayne Dedmon.

Anthony Chiang: Jimmy Butler (tail bone), Bam Adebayo (thumb), Markieff Morris (whiplash) and Caleb Martin (protocols) not traveling with Heat to Cleveland today. Victor Oladipo is traveling with the team for the first time this season, but just to take in the road experience.
Ira Winderman: Jimmy Butler (bruised tailbone) upgraded to questionable for Monday vs. visiting Grizzlies. Expect him to play. Still out for the Heat: Bam Adebayo (thumb), Marcus Garrett (G League), Markieff Morris (whiplash), Victor Oladipo (knee).

Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler will miss Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers after sustaining a sprained right ankle, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Butler suffered the injury in Wednesday's 120-117 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. He played the entire first quarter, scoring seven points with two steals. He was ruled out and watched the second half of the game in street clothes on the bench.
It is unknown how much time Butler will miss. The Heat are on a five-game Western Conference road trip, with games against the Utah Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder after Thursday's game against the Clippers. The Heat lost to the Denver Nuggets on Monday in a game marred by Nuggets star Nikola Jokic's hard shove on Markieff Morris.
Anthony Chiang: Jimmy Butler is listed as questionable for tonight's game vs. Grizzlies because of a right ankle sprain. Avery Bradley (right calf strain), Andre Iguodala (left hip soreness) and Moe Harkless (illness) did not travel with the Heat to Memphis and will not play tonight.
There’s a chance the Miami Heat could have star Jimmy Butler back for Tuesday’s matchup against the Atlanta Hawks. Butler missed Sunday’s win against the Hawks because of right knee inflammation, and he’s listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Hawks at AmericanAirlines Arena. “I think in a season like this with so much news about COVID-19, there can be other basketball minor things,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Sunday of Butler’s injury. “That’s what this is. ... We just want to be proactive about it. He’ll be day-to-day from here.”
Ira Winderman: Heat injury report: Bam Adebayo (Neck Strain) Doubtful Goran Dragić (Left Foot Torn Plantar Fascia) Doubtful Chris Silva (Left Pubic Bone Stress Fracture) Questionable Gabe Vincent (Right Knee Soreness) Questionable) (Jimmy Butler, ankle, is not on the injury report.)
Barry Jackson: Butler says ankle a little sore but said he'll be fine... Butler on Nunn: "Looks like he's going to be in the rotation. I sure hope so.".. On tonight: "We talk about how damn near perfect we have to play and that was nowhere near. Stuff we [said] we had to do, we didn't do."
Rivas, one of 37 members of the team brought into the NBA’s quarantine bubble at Disney Word, amid the coronavirus pandemic, has been with Butler during each of his NBA stops, serving as an assistant athletic trainer with the Chicago Bulls, then an athletic trainer/player preparation and recovery liaison with the Minnesota Timberwolves, followed by a stint with the same title with the Philadelphia 76ers, and now as an assistant athletic trainer with the Heat.
Tim Reynolds: The initial reads on all tests performed on Jimmy Butler's foot/ankle have not revealed any major issues, source says. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said pregame today that Butler is in rest and recovery mode.
Anthony Chiang: Erik Spoelstra said Tyler Herro and Jae Crowder went through a full practice today. Jimmy Butler did not practice today, but he is feeling better. Herro's availability for tomorrow's game will be determined based on how he feels over next 24 hours.

According to NBA insider Brian Windhorst, after the news about the KD’s ultimatum became public, other NBA teams that are interesting in acquiring the superstar will lower their offers instead of increasing them which would further complicate the chances of the trade happening. “Doing it now is a maneuver, a maneuver that I don’t think worked because as I talk to teams out there, they don’t think this increased his trade demand. They think this hurt his trade value,” Windhorst said on ESPN’s This Just In.
“I want to point the second half of the Joe Tsai tweet. I think it’s obviously important to look at the first sentence which is that he’s not going to fire Sean Marks and Steve Nash. But the second sentence is really the sentence that the league paid attention to it. And it seems benign when he says ‘We make decisions for the best interest of the Brooklyn Nets.’ “But I’m going to decode that for you. What he’s basically saying is despite what Kevin Durant is trying do here, we’re not going to change what our expectations are for a trade and if you are not traded, we expect you to be reporting to camp to continue the four years you have left on your contract.”
