Heat expecting Jimmy Butler (tailbone) sidelined through Saturday

Miami Heat guard/forward Jimmy Butler (tailbone) is not expected to play in an upcoming back-to-back set on Friday against the Indiana Pacers and Saturday versus the Milwaukee Bucks, reports Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

What It Means:

Butler missed the past two contests and it sounds like his next chance to play will be next Monday against the Memphis Grizzlies. Tyler Herro and Kyle Lowry will help fill the void on offense while Butler and Bam Adebayo (thumb) are both out. There will also continue to be more minutes for Caleb Martin, Max Strus, and Gabe Vincent.

Herro is averaging 36.5 and Lowry is averaging 32.1 FanDuel points per game this season when Butler is inactive.
