Coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters at the morning shootaround Wednesday that Butler’s absence wasn’t related to his trade request. Butler scored 32 points in 37 minutes in Minnesota’s win Monday against the Los Angeles Lakers. Players didn’t practice Tuesday.
Thibodeau was noncommittal about whether Butler would join the team on the upcoming road trip, with the first stop Friday to face the Golden State Warriors.
