Game Story:

Heat Nation went from elation with a Saturday win against the Nuggets to panic yesterday after Jimmy Butler missed practice with an “excused” absence. This led to some ambiguous media quotes from Jae Crowder and Erik Spoelstra, but evening reports suggest that Jimmy will be available and expected to play in today’s afternoon matchup. The Heat will definitely need him as the Raptors come off a strong win against the Lakers.

Miami is undefeated against the Raptors this season. It will be interesting to see if they can keep that trend alive in the Bubble.

Probable Starters:

  • Jimmy Butler
  • Jae Crowder
  • Bam Adebayo
  • Duncan Robinson
  • Kendrick Nunn
