Jimmy Butler (back) remains out for Miami on Sunday
Miami Heat guard/forward Jimmy Butler will not play Sunday in the team's game against the Detroit Pistons.
Butler is dealing with a back ailment, and he'll miss the regular season finale as a result - it's unclear if it'll impact his availability for the start of the playoffs. Nemanja Bjelica could see another start on the wing. Goran Dragic is now questionable to play due to injury recovery.
In 52 games this season, Butler averaged 21.5 points, 6.9 rebounds, 7.1 assists and 45.6 FanDuel points.
