Monday Update: Waiting for Word on Butler

The team is flying to Salt Lake City this afternoon so there was no practice today. I'm still waiting for official word on Caron Butler's status but I don't think he's making the trip. He was scheduled to undergo an MRI on his hamstring today. I'll update when it's official.

As I reported yesterday, Gilbert Arenas is not making the trip but Brendan Haywood, who has been medically cleared to practice, will be with the team. The issue is a lack of practice time. The team won't practice this week and will have limited days to practice the remainder of the season.

The team would like to see Arenas and Haywood back at some point even if it's only for a few games but I get the feeling that neither player is in a huge rush. In Haywood's case, he feels he needs five to 10 very good practices to be ready to even think about playing.

How does the NBA D-league rules work? Wouldn't it be a good idea to be able to send injured guys down for a little conditioning work?

I'm not sure if it's possible, but it's definitely something the league should consider employing. There are too many games and too little practices during the season for injured guys to truly work themselves back into shape without being thrown to the wolves.
