UPDATE: Kendrick Nunn will miss the game due to personal reasons. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Ira Winderman said that the rookie guard has left the NBA campus “bubble.”

Jimmy Butler will miss his third consecutive game for the Miami Heat tomorrow, when they face the upstart Phoenix Suns.

Butler’s agent, Bernie Lee, told the Miami Herald, “Jimmy had his final scan yesterday. And we understand what he’s dealing with. And he’s working his butt off to get back on the floor ASAP and to be ready for the playoffs.”

On the brighter side, Goran Dragic said that he wanted to work out Friday night before determining his status for Saturday’s game. He is listed as questionable for the game.

The Suns have gone 4-0 in the NBA bubble to gain ground in the race for the 8th seed in the West.
