VIDEO: Heat’s Jimmy Butler injures ankle guarding Kawhi Leonard
The Miami Heat are having a difficult time containing the LA Clippers in front of their own fans. TO make things worse for the American Airlines Arena crowd, they might have to play without Jimmy Butler who is still nursing his injuries.
Jimmy Buckets was tasked with guarding Kawhi Leonard during the Heat’s game against the LA Clippers. While things didn’t seem to go according to plan, things got worse as he seemingly injured his ankle during the play.

Jimmy Butler wasn’t able to return to the game due to the injury he sustained, finishing with 20 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists. While the rest of the Heat squad stepped up their game later on in the game, it was too little, too late. The Clippers got behind Kawhi’s triple-double to give them the W.
Fans will be hoping that Butler doesn’t have to miss a lot of games due to the injury. He’s an important cog to their team, and him sitting out a significant number of games only spells bad news for the team.
