Wolves' Jimmy Butler leaves game with right knee injury

Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Jimmy Butler laid down a challenge for Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams and shared his proposal with ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth before tipoff with the Houston Rockets on Friday night at the Toyota Center. The report added that Rockets star visited Butler in the training room. When Butler was out earlier this season, Wiggins became Minnesota's go-to scorer.

Butler had to be helped off the floor by his teammates.

Clint Capela, who notched his 10th double-double over the last 13 games, finished the night with 25 points and 11 rebounds, while Chris Paul contributed 14 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in the victory for the Rockets.
