Miami Heat vs. Denver Nuggets Injury Report: Jimmy Butler Listed As Probable

The full injury report for Wednesday's game between the Miami Heat and Denver Nuggets

The Miami Heat (35-29) are entering Wednesday evening's matchup against the reigning champion Denver Nuggets (45-20) on a three-game losing streak.

The Heat's latest defeat came against the Washington Wizards by a two-point margin on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Nuggets have won nine of their last 10 games.

Here's the injury report:


Jimmy Butler: Probable - Head Illness (NonCovid)

Jamal Cain: Out - G League - Two-Way

Tyler Herro: Out - Right Foot Medial Tendinitis

Kevin Love: Out - Right Heel Bruise

Caleb Martin: Available - Left Thumb Sprain

Josh Richardson: Out - Right Shoulder Surgery

Alondes Williams: Out - G League - Two-Way


Vlatko Cancar: Out - Left Knee Surgery

Braxton Key: Out - G League - Two-Way

Jalen Pickett: Out - G League - On Assignment

Hunter Tyson: Out - G League - On Assignment

Herro and Love remain sidelined, with the former Sixth Man of the Year missing their last eight matchups. The Heat are missing the tandem's contributions on offense, as Herro is averaging 20.8 points while Love provides a spark off the bench.

The Nuggets enter this game at full strength, competing with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Oklahoma City Thunder for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. Two-time MVP Nikola Jokic is on a tear, scoring more than 30 points in three of their last five games.
