Speaking with the media on Sunday, Heat forward Jae Crowder mentioned Jimmy Butler missing practice and said, "We want to talk to him as soon as he gets out of quarantine and whatever he's in. But it's just next-man-up mentality." He then went on to say, "It's definitely a curve ball to us to hear stuff like what's going on with him. And you never know what to expect."
