Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Toronto Raptors due to neck soreness.

Guard Kyle Lowry is listed as questionable due to left knee soreness for the Heat (40-35). He is expected to play on Tuesday and sit out Wednesday's game against the New York Knicks, multiple reports said. Lowry spent nine seasons with Toronto before coming to Miami.

Butler, 33, boasts team-best averages in points (22.8), assists (5.1) and steals (1.9) in 60 games (all starts) this season.

A six-time All-Star, Butler has contributed 18.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 750 career games (645 starts) with the Chicago Bulls, Minnesota Timberwolves, Philadelphia 76ers and Heat.
