Jimmy Butler appeared to turn his left ankle in Game 1 on Wednesday but is not listed on the injury report ahead of Friday's Game 2 vs. the Lakers on Friday.
The Heat needed some good news after hearing that both Goran Dragić (left foot torn plantar fascia) and Bam Adebayo (neck strain) are doubtful for Friday. There is no doubt that Butler is in pain but it will take more than an ankle sprain to keep him from competing on the biggest stage. The Heat will need all that he can give them if they hope to compete with Anthony Davis, LeBron James and the rest of the Lakers.
