Jimmy Butler will be available to play for the Miami Heat on Monday’s matchup against the Toronto Raptors, per Marc Stein.

Butler is not in the Heat’s injury report, despite the fact that he did not practice on Sunday. The veteran superstar was pretty crucial in Saturday’s win against the Nuggets, putting up 22 points, seven assists, four rebounds and three steals for the Heat.

Following their matchup against the Toronto Raptors on Monday, the Heat will face the Boston Celtics on Tuesday in a really tough sequence of games.

Erik Spoelstra is obviously going to need Butler to play in those games, as Toronto and Boston are two of the top Eastern Conference teams.
