Butler sits out game against Lakers
Mavericks forward Caron Butler did not play in Dallas' game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night after having a negative reaction to medication.
The team said Butler did not participate in Wednesday's shootaround and his status is day-to-day.
Butler, Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson were acquired from Washington as part of a seven-player deal on Feb. 13. The Mavericks came in 4-1 since the trade.
Stevenson will start in Butler's place.
Butler is averaging 16.7 points and 6.6 rebounds this season.
