UPDATE: Butler and Goran Dragic practiced with the Heat today.

Jimmy Butler, who has missed the Miami Heat’s last three games with a foot injury, told Marc Stein of the New York Times that he is on track to play in Monday night’s game against the Indiana Pacers.

This is good news for the Heat; the Pacers moved into a tie with Miami last night when Indiana defeated the Los Angeles Lakers and the Heat lost to the Phoenix Suns. The Heat still hold the four seed thanks to the tiebreaker. And we all know that Butler and TJ Warren got into a scuffle in the last Heat/Pacers game.

Also, Kendrick Nunn has returned to the NBA bubble after he left to attend to a personal matter. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel said that Nunn will have a four-day quarantine starting today, meaning that he could play in Miami’s last seeding game.
