    Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Sits out All-Star Game with apparent illness

    Jimmy Butler didn't play in Sunday's All-Star Game due to an illness and was eager to rest up for the second half, Chris Chavez of Sports Illustrated reports.While Butler was a full participant in warmups and an elaborate pregame ceremony, the versatile wing didn't log a minute in the game itself, with the telecast noting that he was feeling under the weather. Butler's absence may have been a minor disappointment as Team Stephen ultimately fell 148-145, but all indications are that he'll be ready when the Minnesota Timberwolves begin their post-break schedule Friday in Houston.

    Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Helps lead fourth-quarter charge Thursday

    Jimmy Butler generated 24 points (7-20 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT), five rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal across 41 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 win over the Lakers.After a relatively quiet first three quarters, Butler came alive in the fourth, partnering with former Bulls teammate Taj Gibson to spearhead the Minnesota Timberwolves' comeback. He didn't just get it done on the offensive end, either, as he also recorded key blocks against Julius Randle and Isaiah Thomas down the stretch. Butler's shot attempts were encouragingly back up Thursday after he'd combined for a modest 22 over the prior two games, leading to his eighth 20-point-plus effort over the last 10 games heading into the All-Star break. Considering the superior level of multi-category production he's offered thus far in his Minnesota tenure, Butler's fantasy value projects to remain at elite levels for the balance of the regular season.
