Jimmy Butler was listed as doubtful for the Miami Heat’s game against the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday, and NBA fans think they know why.

Butler was originally termed questionable for the game but later downgraded to doubtful. He was dealing with a gastrointestinal issue.

What might have led to that issue? Clever fans think they know.

The Heat faced the San Antonio Spurs in Mexico on Saturday in the NBA Mexico City Game 2022. After the game, which the Heat won 111-101, Butler said he ate crickets while in Mexico.

Fans were joking about the reason, but let’s hope the issue is nothing serious. The 33-year-old guard is averaging 21.9 points on a career-best 52.9 percent shooting this season.
