Butler sits out game against Lakers

BY foxsports • February 25, 2010

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.
