When Miami Heat vs Los Angeles Lakers the game has begun, Jimmy Butler expected to shine beside Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo… I played the entire first quarter, but in the end I had to leave for the second for a reason unknown to most of us. When we saw the replay of the early unfortunate event, we realized that Jimmy had sprained his right ankle. Although he had to play all 12 minutes of the first quarter, he was not himself when he played through the pain. Even through the second half Jimmy tried to continue the game, but it was simply impossible. I left the court completely disappointed.
How serious is Jimmy Butler’s injury?
Ankle sprains can be serious business if left untreated. The fact is that Jimmy Butler could not continue to play the game, this already indicates that he has a serious problem. However, in the second half of the game, he was seen standing without problems. This means that even if the sprain is seriousButler didn’t get a fracture. This is good news, but the bad news is that we still have to wait until it passes the proper tests to see how severe the sprain really is.
What games can Jimmy Butler miss?
Judging by the duress decision Buttler out the game, it can be assumed that playing against the Clippers will be a mistake for the veteran. There is no way he can recover in less than 24 hours when the Heat is playing against the Clippers. After tomorrow’s game, Heath will travel to Salt Lake City to battle Utah Jazz and Oklahoma City to resist thunder… We won’t know how quickly Jimmy will recover until we see if he plays any of these games. All we can do now is wait.
