Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Begins running on injured knee

Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau said Tuesday that Butler (knee) has started running on an anti-gravity treadmill, Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Butler isn't jumping yet, according to the report, but he's at least making progress. The swingman underwent surgery on the meniscus in his right knee in late February and was given an initial return timetable for late March or early April. It sounds like he still has a chance to return during that window with this report of early progress.
