Butler (knee) remains two-to-three weeks away from returning to the court, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Butler last took the court on Feb. 5 against the Nuggets, when he logged just 18 minutes before he was carted off the court with a sprained left knee. He's missed four contests and the All-Star Game in the interim, and while it doesn't sound like he's noticed any setbacks in his recovery, a return likely isn't forthcoming. Until Butler is ready to suit up, Mike Dunleavy will continue to start at small forward, while Doug McDermott also receives increased run on the wing.
