Jimmy Butler is refusing to take the court for Wednesday’s game against the Jazz and could be looking at an extended absence from the Timberwolves.

The Wolves have deemed Butler’s absence from Wednesday’s game as “general soreness,” but he’s reportedly actively made the decision to not play in an attempt to force his way out of Minnesota.

It seems he may have already played his last game donning a Timberwolves jersey, so now it’s just a matter of where he winds up. Plenty of teams have expressed interest, but Miami and Houston have had the most substantial talks thus far.

Josh Okogie is worth grabbing in most leagues while this circus plays out.
