The Miami Heat (28-28) host the Brooklyn Nets (38-18) today at the AmericanAirlines Arena.

Jimmy Butler (ankle) will not start today, though his injury is believed to be more of a load management type and not one that will hold him out for any extended amount of time, and is being replaced in the lineup by Andre Iguodala.

MIAMI:

  • Victor Oladipo: out (knee)
  • Jimmy Butler: out (ankle)
  • Gabe Vincent: day to day (knee)

BROOKLYN:

  • Tyler Johnson: out (knee)
  • Spencer Dinwiddie: out for season (ACL)
  • James Harden: out (hamstring)
