Miami Heat listed Jimmy Butler as: Suspicious about Game 4 On Monday. Butler defeated the Boston Celtics on Saturday night with a knee sore to win Game 3 of the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals. Butler played in the 19th minute of the first half, but did not come out of the locker room after the first half.

It’s unclear if there were any specific instances that caused flare-ups, but Butler has been dealing with knee problems throughout the playoffs. He previously missed Game 5 of the Heat’s first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks due to knee pain. In general, this has been a season full of injuries for Butler. He appeared in 57 games for a variety of reasons, including ankle, tailbone, toe and shoulder problems.

Butler’s injury isn’t the only concern for the Heat heading into Game 4. Miami also listed Tyler Herro (groin), PJ Tucker (knee), Max Strus (hamstring), Gabe Vincent (hamstring) and Kyle Lowry (hamstring). ) is questionable. Lowry played 29 minutes in Game 3, but previously missed Miami’s last four playoffs due to a hamstring injury. Tucker suffered a knee injury in Game 2, but the injury didn’t let him lose time. Herro, Strus, and Vincent saw a normal workload in Game 3, but being all listed in the injury report clearly shows how shocked Heat is right now.

It looks like Heat is full of injuries right now, but Butler’s potential absence could be the biggest. He recorded 41 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals, and 3 blocks, winning Game 1 of the series almost alone. In the playoffs, he averaged 29.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 2.2 steals per game, and is averaging 54% from the field.

Heat survived the third game without Butler, but missing him any more could be detrimental to Miami. If Butler’s lap is ready to go, we’ll have to wait for Game 4.
