Update: Butler suffered an elbow injury during Sunday's victory over Detroit, which concerns his teammates and coach Vinny Del Negro, despite X-rays that came back negative after the game, Pro Basketball Talk reports. An MRI on Monday could reveal the extent of the ailment.
Recommendation: Butler was still able to notch 15 points (6-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, and three steals on the evening. Nonetheless, his scheduled MRI is clearly cause for concern, which would remove an important cog from the Clippers' starting five. If he misses any time, Matt Barnes would see a decent uptick in his workload, with Lamar Odom and Grant Hill experiencing an modest increase in minutes as well. Consider Butler day-to-day for the time being.
