Timberwolves could be without Butler vs. Blazers

MINNEAPOLIS -- A disappointing loss to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday has the Minnesota Timberwolves searching for consistency and the right formula to bring out their best.

With the Portland Trail Blazers coming to town Monday, Minnesota has a new worry: the health of Jimmy Butler.

Butler was injured in the Saturday loss, going to the locker room before returning to the court and trying to push the Timberwolves to victory while wincing through back pain. Minnesota listed Butler questionable for the home game against Portland.
