Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Jimmy Butler was criticized for not playing in the All-Star game last weekend. In his first game back from the break, Butler suffered an apparent leg injury.

He was not able to put any pressure on his injured leg — his right leg — as he needed help from his teammates to get off the court. He grabbed his right knee after making contact with Rockets forward Nenê.

It was tough to determine exactly what happened on the play. Butler made contact with Nenê after getting a rebound, then seconds later, he fell to the floor in pain.

Butler is one of the most played players in the league this season. He’s averaging more than 38 minutes per game.
