CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Bucks announced moments after tipoff Friday night that reserve forward Caron Butler would not play against the Charlotte Bobcats due to a swollen left knee.

The Bucks had not indicated before the game Butler's knee was a problem.

Butler is averaging 13.2 points off the bench for the Bucks, who have lost 10 straight games.

Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is sitting out with plantar fasciitis in his right foot and Jeffery Taylor started in his place.

Charlotte coach Steve Clifford said Kidd-Gilchrist spent Thursday with his foot in a boot and that last year's No. 2 overall draft pick wasn't able to participate in Friday morning's shootaround. Clifford said Kidd-Gilchrist would be evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 9.5 points and 5.4 rebounds. Taylor is averaging 8.8 points and 2.4 rebounds as a reserve.
