    76ers' Jimmy Butler: Listed as questionable

    Jimmy Butler (groin) is listed as questionable for Friday's contest against the Pacers, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.Having to miss Wednesday's contest against the Nets due to a lingering groin injury, this is great news for the Marquette product as he will likely try to give it a go Friday. However, the Philadelphia 76ers maybe extra-cautious with their star forward and will probably not play Butler until he is totally cleared of his injury. If Butler is held out for a second straight game Friday, teammates Furkan Korkmaz and Wilson Chandler will likely be counted on for increased usage.

    76ers' Jimmy Butler: Ruled out Wednesday

    Jimmy Butler (groin) is out Wednesday against the Nets, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.As expected, Butler will be in street clothes for Wednesday's contest. The Philadelphia 76ers lost significant depth trading for Butler earlier in the year, so this absence is a real blow. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid will likely be relied upon more than usual, while some role players like J.J. Redick and Furkan Korkmaz could be worth fliers in DFS settings.

    76ers' Jimmy Butler: Unlikely to play Wednesday

    Jimmy Butler (groin) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice and is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Nets, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.Butler strained his groin during Monday's win over the Pistons, and it sounds like the issue will force him to miss at least one game. His status should clear up closer to tipoff; if Butler is unable to play, Furkan Korkmaz would be a candidate to take his place in the starting lineup.

    76ers' Jimmy Butler: Leaves with groin strain

    Jimmy Butler exited Monday's game against the Pistons with a strained groin and won't return, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.Butler played 10 minutes before departing, finishing with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists. Until the Philadelphia 76ers provide an update on Butler's condition, he should be viewed as questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Nets. The swingman's absence for any length of time would likely result in increased run for Furkan Korkmaz, Wilson Chandler and Landry Shamet.

    Jimmy Butler scored 38 points (13-27 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 11-12 FT) while adding six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block in 39 minutes during Friday's 117-111 win over the Pistons.The 29-year-old stepped up with Joel Embiid (rest) in street clothes, and Butler was especially aggressive on the glass -- five of his six boards were in the offensive end. While his production as a Sixer has been inconsistent so far, he's now scored more than 30 points in three of the last six games.

    76ers' Jimmy Butler: Records double-double in 38 minutes

    Jimmy Butler accounted for 38 points (15-27 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 38 minutes Wednesday as Philadelphie fell to Toronto.Butler posted a season-high with 38 points and chipped in ten rebounds along the way, notching him his second double-double of the season. While he got off to a slow start on the offensive end since joining the Philadelphia 76ers, Butler has now eclipsed the 30-point threshold for the second time in his last five games. It's reasonable to expect Butler to return to his normal, bucket-getting self once he adjusts to playing with his new teammates and they adjust to playing alongside him.

    76ers' Jimmy Butler: Scores 21 points Sunday

    Jimmy Butler had 21 points (7-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and one block in 32 minutes during Sunday's 103-95 victory over the Grizzlies.Butler scored 21 points in Sunday's victory but offered very little outside of the points. In fact, this was his first game since making his 76er debut that he failed to record a steal. He has had to adjust to playing alongside both Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons but as a team, they are performing very well. He is unlikely to put up the same numbers he had during his time in Minnesota but should still remain a solid second-round player moving forward.

    76ers' Jimmy Butler: Has best game with new team

    Jimmy Butler (ankle) finished with 34 points (11-20 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 12 rebounds, four steals and two assists across 37 minutes in Sunday's 127-125 win over the Nets.Butler's status came down to a game-time call heading into the day while he battled a sprained ankle, but he showed no signs of discomfort while taking the floor Sunday. In fact, Butler delivered his best outing since joining the team Nov. 10, surpassing 30 points for the first time as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers and drilling a game-winning, go-ahead three-point bucket with less than three seconds remaining. Butler won't have much of a role as a distributor in Philadelphia with Ben Simmons operating as the team's main facilitator, but playing alongside Simmons and Joel Embiid should prove beneficial for his efficiency. Butler has drilled 51.5 percent of his field-goal attempts and 55 percent of his three-point tries over seven games with Philadelphia.
