Sunday's pre-Super Bowl Eastern Conference Finals rematch will be without Jimmy Butler, as will the Heat for a little while, as he will be away from the team for personal reasons.

The Heat released this statement from Butler's agent, Bernie Lee:

There is no timeline for a return, nor should there be. Butler should be with his loved ones and take all the time he needs before returning.

Our thoughts are with Butler and his family.
