Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Sluggish from the field in Game 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler produced 13 points (4-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two steals across 36 minutes during Minnesota's 104-101 loss to the Rockets during Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

Butler's numbers across the board were relatively modest, and his misfire on a would-be game-tying three-pointer with 1.5 seconds remaining essentially sealed the Timberwolves' fate. The seven-year veteran did prove the fitness of his previously injured knee over the final three games of the regular season, during which he averaged 21.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.7 steals across 29.0 minutes over three games. Therefore, it wouldn't be surprising to see Butler bounce back with better numbers across the board during Wednesday's Game 2.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Takes on huge role in crucial win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler scored 31 points (10-21 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 10-13 FT) while adding five rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 42 minutes during Wednesday's 112-106 win over the Nuggets.

Butler led the team in shot attempts and got to the line with regularity to lead the way in scoring. He'd played exactly 23 minutes in each of his previous two games since returning from along injury layoff, but he pushed himself down the stretch and played a large part in the team's overtime surge to clinch a spot in the playoffs. This prime time performance concludes Butler's season with averages of 22.1 pints, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and two steals per game, but most importantly he helped the franchise to its first playoff birth since 2005.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Scores 15 points in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler chipped in 15 points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-11 FT), three assists, three steals, and two rebounds in 23 minutes during Monday's 113-94 win over the Grizzlies.

Butler saw the same minute total that he did in Friday's return to the lineup, and again provided pretty well-rounded production. The winner of Wednesday's season finale versus the Nuggets will earn the final playoff spot up for grabs in the Western Conference, so Butler could end up seeing more minutes in that one following these last two blowout victories.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Highly efficient in Friday's return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (knee) tallied 18 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-8 FT), two rebounds, one assist and four steals across 23 minutes in Friday's 113-96 win over the Lakers.

Butler finally hit the floor again after a 17-game absence and looked like he hadn't missed a beat. The veteran wing did see capped minutes, but the fact he rolled out with the first unit from the opening tip was certainly encouraging. Assuming he emerged from the contest without any setbacks, Butler should see a bump in minutes in Monday's tilt against the Grizzlies after resting over the weekend.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Will return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed Butler (knee) is a "go" for Friday's matchup with the Lakers, Shahan Ahmed of NBC4 Los Angeles reports.

Although Butler was deemed questionable heading into the evening, he was reportedly planning on playing all along. His return will end a string of 18 consecutive games on the sideline, so the Timberwolves will presumably try to work him back into the swing of things in order to ensure his conditioning for the playoffs. Nemanja Bjelica will presumably take the biggest hit in terms of playing time as a result of Butler's return.
