Jimmy Butler (health protocols) ruled out again for Heat on Friday

Miami Heat guard/forward Jimmy Butler (health protocols) has been ruled out again for Friday's game against the Toronto Raptors.

What It Means:

Butler and Avery Bradley have both been ruled out again due to the NBA's COVID-19 protocols. Meyers Leonard will also not play due to a shoulder injury and Tyler Herro is questionable with a neck ailment. Chris Silva (hip) is questionable while Gabe Vincent (knee) is probable. Look for the Heat to rely on Goran Dragic, Bam Adebayo, Duncan Robinson, and Kendrick Nunn if Herro and others join Butler and Bradley on the sidelines Friday. Nunn scored 28 points off the bench Wednesday.

Dragic leads the Heat with a 29.6 percent usage rate when Butler and Herro aren't on the floor this season. Adebayo is second at 28.7 percent while Nunn isn't far behind at 24.4 percent. Adebayo is averaging a team-high 1.4 FanDuel points per minute in those situations.
