Wizards' Butler may return Friday
Coach Flip Saunders said Tuesday an MRI showed fluid on the ankle and that Butler needed to get the extra rest so that he could possibly return for the Wizards' next game, Friday against Miami.
The Wizards were missing two starters for the game. Mike Miller is expected to be sidelined several weeks after straining his right calf Saturday against San Antonio.
