Butler left the Pistons game early with a groin injury.

According to Kyle Neubeck of the Philly Voice, Jimmy Butler has been listed as doubtful for tomorrow night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets and did not practice today:

Neubeck went on to note that Butler underwent an MRI that revealed “nothing significant” — i.e., no damage worth worrying about.

Butler’s injury occurred during Monday’s game against the Detroit Pistons. He left the game early with a groin strain and did not return.

If Butler is a no-go vs. the Nets, I would expect Mike Muscala to get the start in his place, with Muscala manning the four and Wilson Chandler sliding down to small forward.
