Butler didn't attempt a shot in his minute of playing time against New York in the Spurs' 94-84 win Monday. The veteran small forward saw a majority of his time this season in the Spurs' blowout of the Nets last Friday where he saw a season-high of 11 minutes. Aside from that, his opportunities to play have been little to none for San Antonio. Butler provides yet another veteran presence to the locker room, however he will be hard pressed to find a substantial role coming behind Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Anderson on the depth chart.
Forward Rasual Butler is listed on the Spurs' training camp roster, Michael Erler of SB Nation reports. The 36-year-old Butler had a surprising resurgent season for the Wizards in 2014-15, posting averages of 7.7 points and 20.1 minutes in 75 games, all of which marked his highest totals in three years. His advancing age could make it difficult for him to break camp with the Spurs, but it's possible coach Gregg Popovich may be willing to keep him aboard as a veteran mentor for some of the team's younger players.
The Wizards are hoping to end a five-game skid this Saturday but may not have guard Bradley Beal to help them do that. Beal, who has a sore big right toe, has been listed as questionable for Saturday's road game against the Nets, according to CSN Washington's J. Michael. Beal underwent tests on his toe Friday with the results putting his status for the Nets game in doubt. Beal left during the first quarter of Thursday's loss to the Hornets due to the injury. Rasual Butler and Otto Porter are the next men up if Beal is unable to play.
Wizards forward Rasual Butler continues to torch opponents from the 3-point line. Butler finished 4 of 5 from 3-point range to help lead the Wizards to a 110-95 victory over the Timberwolves Tuesday. Butler scored 23 points on 9 of 15 shooting. He added five rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal. Butler is shooting 51.5 percent from 3-point range this season. The 23 points marked the fourth time Butler has scored 20 or more points off the bench this season. The Wizards next play Friday at Miami.
Wizards small forward Rasual Butler scored a team-high 22 points on 8 of 17 shooting, including 6 of 10 shooting from three-point range, in his team's 101-93 loss to the Celtics Sunday. Butler played 30 minutes off the bench while delivering an excellent performance from behind the arc, making at least six three-pointers in a game for the first time since March 2010. However, the Wizards were unable to prevent the team's four-game winning streak from coming to an end. They'll face the Celtics again Monday.
