Butler tallied 38 points (15-33 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 45 minutes during Tuesday's 118-112 loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Butler put the team on his back, but it wasn't enough to pull out the victory. He was extremely aggressive on offense, putting up almost a third of the teams shot attempts for the game. This will be a tough loss for the team to deal with, as they had a lead late in the game and basically disappeared in the overtime period. They will look to get things back on track against the Sacramento Kings on Thursday.

Butler had 22 points (9-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in 40 minutes during Sunday's 97-92 victory over the Mavericks.

EDGE Analysis

Butler was everywhere Sunday, helping the Timberwolves to a tough victory over Dallas. His slow start to the season is now a distant memory, as he continues his resurgence back into form. He looks like a completely different player of late, seemingly more aggressive on both ends of the floor. He has now played over 40 minutes in five consecutive games, a sign that he is healthy and free of any injury concerns.

Butler is dealing with a sprained pinkie finger on his left hand, but will play as usual Wednesday against the Clippers, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Butler is right-handed, so this shouldn't have much of an impact on his shot or ball-handling ability. Look for Butler to take on his typical workload as a member of the starting unit and he's coming off back-to-back performances of 30 points or more, so he'll likely be looking to get up plenty of shots once again against a Clippers team depleted by injuries.

Butler tallied 30 points (11-21 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), five assists, four steals and two rebounds in 40 minutes during Monday's 95-92 loss to Memphis.

EDGE Analysis

Butler was the only bright spot on an otherwise dismal night for the Timberwolves. While Karl-Anthony Towns struggles to get involved in the offense, Butler has been on the opposite end of the spectrum. He has seen his game come back to where it was last season, much to the delight of those owners who were patient with him. While his form has been excellent, the coaching staff need to find a way to get other players involved in the offense. This was a game that the Wolves should be winning, if they have playoff aspirations come season's end.

Butler finished with 33 points (10-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 11-13 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes during Sunday's 112-106 victory over the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

Butler was magnificent in this game, helping the Timberwolves to their 14th win of the season. Although only two games into the month, Butler is putting up averages of 27.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.5 blocks. He is looking more like the player we have seen over the past few seasons, putting his slow start well in the rear-vision mirror.

Butler tallied 22 points (7-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), seven assists, three rebounds, three steals and two blocks across 41 minutes during Friday's 111-107 loss to the Thunder.

EDGE Analysis

Butler continues his resurgence after an early-season slump, finishing with 22 points to go along with another 3 steals. He has settled in nicely, now being able to play his natural game alongside both Karl-Anthony Towns and Jeff Teague. He has been racking up both steals and assists on a regular basis, and with no signs of slowing down, could force his way back into being a top 25 fantasy asset.

Butler scored 26 points with three assists, two steals and three rebounds in 36 minutes in Wednesday's win over Orlando.

EDGE Analysis

Butler scored 26 points (10-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, five steals and four assists in 42 minutes during Sunday's 100-97 loss to the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

He had a chance to tie the game at the buzzer, but his three-point attempt couldn't find the mark. The double-double was Butler's second of the season and second in four games, and he seems to have found his groove on offense as well, scoring 20 or more points in four of his last five contests. The 28-year-old's production is starting to match his typical output as a Bull, and the window for attempting to pick him up at a discount due to his slow start may already be closing.

Butler scored just six points and was just 2-of-13 from the floor, but added five assists, five rebounds and three steals in 33 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

Butler struggled with his shot, but was able to make a significant impact on the defensive end. Since saying he needs to be more aggressive on offense, Butler is taking 14 shots from the field over his last three games, compared to 12.1 shots per game in his first nine games. He's scoring 17.3 points in his last three games compared to 14.7 points per game in his first nine games, so his offensive production is trending upward even with Wednesday's shooting slump.
