UPDATE: Butler is expected to be available for tomorrow’s game against the Raptors, according to Anthony Chiang and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

After putting together an impressive performance in the Miami Heat’s Saturday win over the Denver Nuggets, Jimmy Butler was not with the team for practice Sunday.

Jae Crowder commented on the absence, saying that, “It’s definitely a curve ball to us to hear stuff like what’s going on with him.” Who knows what that is referring to, but I just hope Butler and his family are OK. Hopefully the fact that he’s still in the NBA bubble means that it will just be a day off.
