As Erik Spoelstra would say, "We have enough."

11. Caleb Martin

Caleb Martin missed some of his own games while Butler was out. This injury has prevented him from ranking higher on this list. Still, he had one decent outing against Atlanta in which he scored 11 points to go along with eight rebounds.

10. Josh Richardson

Like Martin, Josh Richardson has missed a few of his own games.  In the games he did play, Richardson was able to knock down a few 3-pointers to boost the team’s offense, except for the game against Atlanta, where he missed all four of his attempts.

9. Haywood Highsmith

Clearly, the Heat have the injury bug. Haywood Highsmith has also missed games over this stretch. When he did play, he was active on defense and seemed to be starting to find a rhythm on offense. Unfortunately, he suffered a concussion and will be out for even more games.
