Caron Butler suffered a sprained left ankle and will not return to tonight's game #MILvNYK— Bucks PR (@BucksPR) February 4, 2014
Butler was struggling in the game before leaving with the injury and only had three points on 1-of-6 shooting from the field. To his credit, he did have five rebounds.
Butler has only played in 31 games this season thanks to a variety of ailments. He was averaging 10.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists on the year coming into the game with the Bucks and had a PER of 12.5 that left much to be desired.
The Bucks have the fewest amount of victories in the NBA this year, so don’t expect them to rush Butler back anytime soon. With a lottery pick heading the franchise’s way, it’s in the best interest of both parties for Butler to take the necessary recovery time with his latest injury.
