Caron Butler Breaks Hand In Wizards' Win.

If you have Caron Butler in your NBA fantasy roster/s, better waive him off. The former UConn Husky broke his right hand while trying to block Ruben Patterson's shot in the Washington Wizards' 121-107 road win over Milwaukee. Butler, on his third game since having a left knee contusion, scored 19 points before leaving midway in the third quarter. He said that he may miss the playoffs because of the injury. He will be consulting a hand specialist to know his situation. The Wizards' win came hours after Detroit crushed Miami at Auburn Hills, taking back the Southeast from the Heat. However, they remained one-and-a-half game behind Toronto for third place after the Raptors scored a playoff-clinching win at home versus Charlotte, 107-94 later in the day.
