As the Miami Heat received a blowout defeat from the Memphis Grizzlies at home on Monday, another bothersome concern has arrived for the South Beach fans.
Jimmy Butler is “very sore” after a painful fall during the 1st period of the match — reaggravating his tailbone injury.
Upon the address of Heat HC Erik Spoelstra in the media, the star swingman’s availability is yet to be confirmed in the team’s marquee showdown against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. He also added that Butler will be examined on Tuesday to check if there’s damage.
As Butler and star big man Adebayo are out, Spoelstra understands the challenging task he has to adjust and make the team solid moving forward.
Butler finished the game with 10 markers, 5 boards and 4 dimes, visibly rusty possibly from the pain in his back. As there is a possibility that he’ll be out to take plenty of rest, the 14-11 Heat need to be in that “Next man up” mentality to be competent on the arriving adversities.
