Jimmy Butler, Goran Dragic Ruled Out vs. Los Angeles Clippers
January 28Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
The Heat continue to deal with a host of health and injury issues. Butler has been ruled out due to health and safety protocols and will miss his 10th straight game, while Dragic will miss his second-straight game with a groin injury. The injuries don’t stop there. Moe Harkless, Meyers Leonard, and Chris Silva have also been ruled out, while Tyler Herro and Avery Bradley are questionable.
The Heat mustered just 82 points Wednesday vs. the Nuggets with Butler, Dragic, and Herro out of the lineup, and they ultimately lost that contest by 29 points. Kendrick Nunn led the team with 38.9 minutes, while Bam Adebayo posted a usage rate of 25.2% and an assist rate of 40.1%. Both players will be appealing FanDuel options if Herro is ruled out once again.
The Heat are currently listed as four-point home favorites vs. the Clippers on FanDuel Sportsbook.
