Minnesota Timberwolves' Butler carried off court after injury

Minnesota Timberwolves' Butler carried off court after injury

Butler drove into the paint with about three minutes remaining in the third quarter, missed a short jumper, but then clawed the rebound. He was on the floor for several minutes before being helped off the court by two teammates.

And although there's still some concern for the severity of the injury, initial X-rays showed Butler might've avoided an ACL tear, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported Friday, citing sources.

After winning 10 in a row before the All Star break, the Rockets opened the post-break portion of their schedule with a 120-102 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday night at Toyota Center.

The Associated Press contributed to this article. Towns added 13 rebounds.

The pay-per-view possibilities alone would be delicious, although the game would probably be unlikely during the season.

The Rockets will look to run their win streak to 12 games when they visit the Denver Nuggets Sunday night.

LeBron James posted his 11th triple-double of the season by providing 18 points, 14 boards and 11 assists to the Cavaliers' 112-89 drubbing of the Grizzlies.

Frank Kaminsky scored a season-high 25 points and the Hornets improved to 3-0 against the Wizards this season by taking a 122-105 decision at Washington.

Pelicans 124, Heat 123: Anthony Davis had 45 points, 17 rebounds, five blocked shots and five steals as host New Orleans beat Miami in overtime for its fourth consecutive victory.
