The Miami Heat will be looking for their seventh straight win Tuesday night, and they may get some reinforcements back for that game against the Atlanta Hawks.
Although star Jimmy Butler missed Sunday’s game against the Hawks, he has yet to be ruled out because of Tuesday’s tilt and is currently listed as questionable.
Avery Bradley is also listed as questionable, although he has yet to prepare for a game since February 3.
Jimmy Butler (knee) questionable for Heat Tuesday against Hawks. Avery Bradley (calf), Meyers Leonard (shoulder) out. Likely Gabe Vincent (knee). No other Heat players as of 5:30 pm report injury.

Miami won Sunday’s game against Atlanta, 109-99. While Butler missed the game with an aggravated knee, the team benefited from a massive game by point guard Kendrick Nunn.
Nunn scored 24 points on 8 of 15 shots from the field and 4 of 8 from beyond the arc.
The Heat had five players in total finish the night with double-digit scoring efforts.
Sunday’s victory marked the end of a month in which the Heat got their 2020-21 season back on track. The six-game winning streak to end the month brought the Heat back to the playoff conversation in the Eastern Conference.
In fact, they are currently at the top of the Southeast Division.
They will surely seek to continue that success going into March.
