Jimmy Butler is able to get up after taking a hard fall on his backside. He returned today from a tailbone contusion. pic.twitter.com/FifhO5ooA27:51 PM

Jimmy Butler was down on the other end and is limping down the court…and he has been given a technical foul after jawing with the refs – 7:50 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jaren Jackson Jr. splashes a three and Desmond Bane splashes a three. A Dillon Brooks drive and finishes means eight quick points and a 14-4 advantage. – 7:50 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
It took a bit for Jimmy Butler to get up after that hard fall. He missed the last four games with a bruised tailbone.
And when he got up, he was not happy with the officials. He was just called for a technical. – 7:50 PM

Jimmy Butler is down and looks like the tailbone again, after returning from a four-game absence with the injury. Now walking gingerly toward referee, being restrained, and then called for technical foul. – 7:50 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
And to add a little extra Jimmy Butler just got a tech. – 7:49 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Jimmy Butler is down on the court. He fell right on the previously injured tailbone. – 7:49 PM

Tonight’s game is the 172nd consecutive regular-season appearance for Duncan Robinson, the second-longest streak in the franchise’s 34 seasons. The record is 174 by Glen Rice, from 1992 to ’94. Robinson can tie it Saturday vs. visiting Bulls. – 7:39 PM

From earlier: What the Heat likes about the Kyle Lowry-Gabe Vincent pairing that has been a constant in recent weeks miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia… And Jimmy Butler is back – 7:11 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Jimmy Butler is back in the Heat’s starting lineup, which is not a surprise at this point. – 7:07 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
The day after Miami fired Blake James, the administration tried to leak that no decision had been made on Manny Diaz’s future. That was hilarious. – 7:07 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Jimmy Butler back in the Heat starting lineup, alongside Dewayne Dedmon, Duncan Robinson, Kyle Lowry and P.J. Tucker. Tyler Herro back to sixth man. – 7:06 PM

Markieff Morris on the court shooting pregame. With Heat likely to hold first home practice of regular season on Tuesday, Wednesday vs. Bucks could be in play. Likely will come down to how he comes out of practice. – 6:57 PM

Early observation from Miami:
@Michael Wallace is the king of this town. – 6:17 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Mario Cristobal knew he could recruit top 10 classes to Oregon.
But he also knows that he can recruit better actual talent to Miami.
There is a difference between star ratings and star players.
Not all 4-star recruits are created equal. – 6:12 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Ziaire Williams has been upgraded to AVAILABLE tonight, per Coach Jenkins. – 6:07 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jenkins has arrived. Coach says that the Grizzlies have displayed great resilience during this four game winning streak without Ja Morant. “…the commitment to having better activity, better game plan discipline…a lot of things going in the right direction…” – 6:04 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
This should be another trial run for Omer Yurtseven tonight, since Miami may be pushed away from total small lineups
The reasoning: Memphis is the #1 rebounding team this season – 5:35 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Grizzlies need another good start tonight for a chance to win. Miami is 10-2 this season when leading after the first quarter.
Need to be aggressive right away, especially Jaren Jackson Jr. – 5:29 PM

Went to go look up how Atlanta guarded KAT last time the Wolves played the Hawks… and found this was the Wolves starting 5 in that game…
Towns
Josh Okogie
Andrew Wiggins
Kelan Martin
Jarrett Culver
KAT and four shooting guards… Those were dark times. – 4:32 PM
