Prior to his exit on Sunday, Butler recorded just nine points in 24 minutes of playing time.
The injury to Butler is another blow to a Heat team that is now dealing with a slew of injuries.
Crowder was entered into the NBA’s concussion protocol over the weekend following a collision during Friday night’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.
The win on Sunday marked Miami’s fifth in their last six games. They’ll look to continue their winning ways on Wednesday night when they host the Charlotte Hornets.
Whether or not Butler is healthy enough to suit up for that game remains to be seen.
