The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs will play in a crucial game at FTX Arena on Saturday night. The Spurs will undoubtedly attempt to reverse the results after the Heat won both of their meetings with this team the season before.
Injury Status of Jimmy Butler and Zach Collins for Saturday’ game
The Spurs lost both of their games against the Heat last season and one fair the year before, and they haven’t been able to defeat them since the 2020 season. San Antonio’s struggles to keep everyone healthy and maintain consistency in the lineup have contributed to the team’s struggles this season.
The biggest absence is still Jakob Poeltl’s ongoing knee issue, and it doesn’t help that Zach Collins, his backup, is also doubtful (head). Both of their first-round picks, Jeremy Sochan (quadricep) and Keita Bates-Diop (complimentary player), are still out with injuries.
The Heat’s season has a lot on the line, they have had a slow start, and it is still unclear how far they can go. Being under.500 is unheard of for Miami, but San Antonio’s visit will be greatly appreciated there.
Jimmy Butler’s right knee injury is being treated. The Heat are being cautious due to Butler’s knee injury, but he is still expected to play on Saturday.
The star forward’s workload against the Spurs shouldn’t worry fantasy managers because he has played an average of 34 minutes per game over his last three games.
Tyler Herro will likely play against the Spurs on Saturday.
Despite being on the injury report before almost every game, Tyler Herro has played 37 or more minutes in seven straight games. Unless Miami decides to give him the night off, he should be prepared to handle a full workload.
