Jimmy Butler has missed five of the past six games, dealing with a tailbone injury. Butler is listed as day to day as he continues to recover. Markieff Morris has missed the last 16 games after taking a shot from Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic.
Victor Oladipo has not appeared yet for the Miami Heat this season as he continues to recover. Duncan Robinson has not missed a game for the Heat this season.
Miami is 4-6 over their past 10 games heading into Saturday’s matchup with the Bulls. The Heat defeated Chicago 107-104 in their first meeting this season. Both Miami and Chicago are vying for a top spot in the Eastern Conference this season.
Miami is currently 15-11 this season while the Bulls sit at 17-9. After Saturday’s matchup, the Heat will hit the road for their next four games.
