Butler left the game in the 1st quarter after playing 8 minutes and going scoreless. Matt Barnes took over at Small-Forward position and played very well with 14pts and 9rebs in a win over San Antonio.
Head Coach Vinny Del Negro stated Butler will be a game-time decision for the todays game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“We’ll see in the morning, see how he feels,” Del Negro said.
“He’s sore,” Del Negro said. “He battled through it last night the best he could and he’s trying to work through it. He’ll be fine. He’s tough.”
My assumption is Matt Barnes will get the starting nod over Lamar Odom
