The Heat's injury report in recent days has been filled with several nagging ailments and the team hopes that rest does the trick for Jimmy Butler’s shoulder injury.
“I'll be OK, figure this thing out, do more and more treatment on it every day," Butler said, with the Heat now with an extended break before the second round of the NBA playoffs that, for them, likely won't start until the weekend. Butler said he began experiencing the discomfort after Saturday's victory over the Pacers, when he bulled his way to 20 free-throw attempts. He then wrapped and taped the shoulder before Monday's game, but was forced out the opening period, returning at the start of the second half. Luckily for the Heat, they will have some well-deserved days off after sweeping the Pacers and Butler should be fine going forward.
