If Butler (ankle) doesn’t play tomorrow and if Lowry & Garrett don’t clear protocols, then only 3 players who began the year as Heat players will be on the court tomorrow in Houston: Herro, Yurtseven, Caleb Martin. And another who began the last decade as a Heat player (Chalmers) – 6:03 PM

Duncan Robinson and Marcus Garrett has been added to a Heat healthy-and-safety protocols list that at the moment also includes Lowry, Strus, Vincent, Tucker, Haslem, Cheatham. Butler (ankle) listed as questionable for Friday in Houston. – 5:54 PM
