 Injury Update Heat - Celtics

Miami Heat has struggled with consistency this season, as only one of its losses has been a stand-alone loss not accompanied by another setback. The Heat, on the other hand, have gone on a few winning streaks and are only two games below.500 heading into this game.

Jimmy Butler (knee) is listed as questionable for the Celtics game on Friday.

Butler was scheduled to return on Wednesday but was pushed back to Friday ahead of the game. His return is one of the most significant from a group that has been severely hampered by injuries in recent weeks.

Butler’s status should be updated on game day, and given his multi-week absence, he may face a slight minutes limit.

Tyler Herro (ankle) is expected to play against the Celtics on Friday.

Herro remains on Miami’s extensive injury report due to an ankle injury, but he’ll likely be able to play through it again Friday after appearing in the previous four games. In those four games, he has averaged 15.3 points, 8.0 assists, and 6.8 rebounds in 36.3 minutes.

Following its trip to the NBA Finals last season, Boston got off to a slow start this season, losing three of its first seven games. Since then, the Celtics have been the hottest team in the league, winning 14 of their last 15 games.

Their lone defeat came in a 121-107 loss to Boston, but they have since rebounded with a five-game winning streak. They finish a six-game homestand on Friday before going on the road for six games.

The Celtics are one of the few teams that are injury-free.
