Jimmy Butler (back) will not suit up for Sunday's game

Jimmy Butler has been ruled out and will not suit up for Sunday's game versus the Portland Blazers due to a back injury. The Heat will take a cautious route with their top player so Derrick Jones will start in his place.

Fantasy Impact:

With Butler out, Goran Dragic, Tyler Herro, and Kendrick Nunn become even better options in all leagues to close out the week. Jones is a cheap value punt play at best in DFS lineups for Sunday.
