Sources: MRI on Butler’s groin comes back clean

Philadelphia 76ers forward Jimmy Butler suffered no structural damage in his groin, league sources told ESPN’s Zach Lowe.

Butler underwent an MRI on Tuesday after leaving Monday night’s win over the Detroit Pistons in the first quarter with a groin strain.

Despite the good news, Butler is still listed as doubtful for the Sixers’ game against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.

Butler has averaged 21.4 points per game since coming over to the Sixers in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves last month.

Philadelphia has gone 10-3 since Butler joined the lineup.
