    The second-round draft pick will sit out Summer League action as the Jazz attempt to manage his usage. The guard evidently has not went through the physical rigors of game play in some time so the team is instead slowly getting him up to game speed in practice. No injury was listed as part of this decision, so it's likely a precautionary measure after Butler's team ultimately played through, and won, the NCAA championship.
