Clippers guard Lou Williams didn't like it when Jimmy Butler of the Minnesota Timberwolves accepted an invitation to the All-Star Game last weekend at Staples Center but then didn't play a single minute in order to rest.
Butler appeared to suffer an injury to his right leg while possessing the ball in the paint.
Butler had to be helped off the court Friday night with an apparent knee injury. He wasn't able to put any pressure on it, which is has many expecting the worst.
While no information on Butler's condition was not given immediately, the Olympic star seemed to give himself a self-diagnosis to his teammates while being carried off the floor.

The report goes on to say that Whedon couldn't "crack the code for what the Batgirl story should be". Less than a year after announcement, Joss Whedon is off of the upcoming Batgirl movie .
Sources: X-rays on Jimmy Butler's right knee returned negative tonight, with MRI scheduled tomorrow in Minnesota and some hope around the severity. As for the Timberwolves futures to win the NBA Championship, BetDSI Sportsbook now has them at 60/1.
The injury happened in the third quarter.
A couple of days ago, Williams tweeted Butler asking him if he was serious about "resting" in the All-Star Game. The Timberwolves lost by a point in Chicago on February 9th, so there's no question that both Butler and the team had this game circled for revenge.
