Per Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald, Nemanja Bjelica will replace Butler in the starting lineup.
When healthy, he is the go-to leader for the defending Eastern Conference champions as someone who can stuff the stat sheet by attacking off the bounce, shooting from the outside and defending the opponent's best player on a nightly basis.
He is a five-time All-Star, three-time All-NBA selection and four-time All-Defensive selection.
The Marquette product is averaging 21.5 points, 7.1 assists, 6.9 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game this season as the Heat look to return to the NBA Finals.
While Miami does not have anyone in its lineup who can replicate Butler's impact, look for the combination of Duncan Robinson, Tyler Herro and Andre Iguodala to see more playing time if he is sidelined following this latest setback.
