Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Sits out All-Star Game with apparent illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Timberwolves begin their post-break schedule Friday in Houston.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Helps lead fourth-quarter charge Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Helps team to 13th consecutive home win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler collected 18 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 7-9 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 39 minutes during Sunday's 111-106 victory over Sacramento.

Butler took a back seat on the offensive end of the floor with Karl-Anthony Towns assuming the alpha role. He was still able to contribute across the board and helped the team to their franchise-tying 13th consecutive home win. They will look to break that record on Tuesday when the surging Houston Rockets come calling.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Scores game-high 38 points Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler scored 38 points (11-26 FG, 3-9 3PT, 13-15 FT) to go with seven rebounds, five assists and four steals in 41 minutes during Friday's 114-113 loss to Chicago.

Despite leading the way for Minnesota, Butler's 38 points were not enough in a losing effort against Chicago on Friday. However, the guard continues to pile up the points in a big way as of late. In his last seven games, Butler is averaging 28.7 points. After Friday's 30-plus point performance, he has now scored at least 30 points in three straight games as well. In addition, Butler is filling out the stat sheet with 7.0 rebounds and 5.4 assists to supplement his scoring in his last seven games. He will look to add on to these impressive numbers against Sacramento on Sunday.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Scores 35 points in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler went for 35 points (14-21 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six assists, five rebounds, and two steals in 46 minutes during Wednesday's 140-138 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.

Butler went toe-to-toe with LeBron James, who sank the game-winning basket in his face as the overtime clock expired. While it was James who stole the show with the buzzer-beater and the triple-double, Butler delivered a well-rounded stat line too. He remains one of the top options across all fantasy formats.
