Via the Dallas Morning News, Caron Butler will miss tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers with a bad reaction to medication, causing illness.
It’s an unfortunate miss for Butler, as one of the advantages of the trade for Butler and Haywood were the matchups against the Lakers. Butler provides a long two-guard to put against the largely unstoppable Kobe Bryant. DeShawn Stevenson starts in his place. Yikes.
