Jimmy Butler will miss Heat opener for personal reasons

Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler’s Miami Heat debut will have to wait for some strange reasons.

Butler has been ruled out of Miami’s regular season opener against the Memphis Grizzlies for personal reasons. Coach Erik Spoelstra assured the media that everything was “fine” and there were no significant issues with Butler.

This one really came out of the blue and there is very little information behind the call. Whatever the issue is can’t be completely minor if Butler is sitting out a game because of it, but at the moment, it doesn’t sound significant. There’s no reason to believe he’s disgruntled in any way, either — after all, this is where he wanted to play. Presumably, we’ll hear more soon, but the wait for Butler’s Heat debut will go a little longer.
