Depending on the grade of your strain, here’s estimated recovery times:

  • Grade 1: two to three weeks
  • Grade 2: two to three months
  • Grade 3: four months or more

 

Hope it’s nothing serious :unsure:

 

It can even be one week. I just googled and saw Acy returned after one week for example. Jimmy always finds a way to miss time though, every year same story.

Jimmy Butler is doubtful for tomorrow’s game and did not participate in today’s practice.

 

An MRI on Butler today revealed “nothing significant”

 

Kyle Neubeck Retweeted Zack (sad boi)

Brown said they’re not really prepared to comment on any timetables but i think the fact that the team framed it the way they did looks like a positive for him returning soon

It is customary to preface a statement like this with the rejoinder " No Homo" .

Can't do that nowadays bud. Not even in the fantasy forums. Gets you in trouble, ya know?

Anyone else thinking about dealing him next time he strings together a couple of solid games back to back? Really tired of the garbage games. 

 

Using Monster’s system, he has seven really bad games so far this year (-.25  value). He had seven all of last year. And this doesn’t even count all the bs games he’s sat out.

Nope.

 

How many of those games were due to Butler sustaining an injury during the game or Butler trying to acclimatize with his new team? Maybe half? You know what Butler can do and he has shown in two back to back games that he is a worthy top 20 player. You need to be patient..

I'm already sending out feelers, but nobody seems to be too interested. Don't blame them. He is absolutely the worst top tier guy. I don't think even the John Collins owner would bite anymore.

well he might still be able to turn it up. other stats like steals, threes are still there. 

if he would go average 49%fg 85% ft 2 threes, 22 ppg, 5 rbg, 4 asg, 2 spg and half a block per game. he would still sit in top 30 value. even as a 3rd option i think these values are reasonable.

I’m as disappointed as anyone with the inconsistencies, but anyone who thinks he’s third option behind a guy who can’t shoot with two hands is out of their damn mind. If you watch philly play, he and embiid are still figuring out how to play together and it’s been quite awkward on offence when they share the floor thus far. I don’t expect that will continue the entire season

That's way higher than top30 numbers, basically it's top10 numbers
