Analysis: Butler tallied 21 points or more for the fourth time in his last five games and continues to pile up the steals as well.

Analysis: Butler has been very hit-or-miss in November. In four games, he's scored more than 20 points. In the other four this month, he's averaged 8.5 points on 31.6 percent shooting.

Analysis: After a pair of 20-point games in which he got to the free-throw line a combined 26 times, Butler took just two free throws. He's now shooting under 40 percent from the field this season.

Butler pulled down four rebounds and dished out 10 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +11 in his 38:38 of playing time. He added one block and two steals.
Analysis: The most encouraging sign for Butler is that he's been to the free-throw line 26 times in the last two games. He'd only been to the stripe 36 times in his first nine.

Butler pulled down seven rebounds and had five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 40:28 on the floor. He added one block and one steal. Butler went 1 of 3 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Butler matched a season high scoring total by going 14 of 16 from the foul line, an area he rarely visited while averaging a disappointing 9.3 points over his previous three games. Though he hasn't been as reliable as years past, Minnesota's marquee offseason addition is still delivering starter-worthy fantasy numbers with his new team.
|Nov. 9 10:27 PM PT11:27 PM MT12:27 AM CT1:27 AM ET6:27 GMT14:27 11:27 PM MST1:27 AM EST10:27 UAE07:271:27 ET12:27 AM CTNaN:� - Jimmy Butler scored 11 points Wednesday, going 5 of 12 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves lost to the Golden State Warriors 125-101. Butler grabbed three rebounds and dished out five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -16 in his 31:28 on the floor. He added two steals. Butler went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Butler continues to be among the biggest early-season fantasy disappointments, especially during a three-game stretch in which he's averaging a pedestrian 9.3 points. The three-time All-Star is still making steady contributions in the rebounding, assist and steal departments, so owners will just need to adapt to his reduced scoring totals.

Butler grabbed five rebounds and dished out seven assists, tallying a plus-minus of +13 in his 33:36 on the floor.
Analysis: Butler seemed to have broken out of his early-season slump by averaging 21.3 points over his previous three games, but Saturday's performance suggests that might be premature. He's still averaging starter-worthy numbers of 15.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.7 steals per game even if he can't buy a 3-point bucket at the moment.

Butler pulled down five rebounds and had seven assists, tallying a plus-minus of +11 in his 38:11 of playing time.
Analysis: Butler returned after missing two games with an upper-respiratory infection and looked very good. He scored a season-high 25 points after totaling 28 in his two previous games and went to the line 13 times after he had three combined attempts in the first three contests. The 20-plus point performances should become common now for Butler.
|Oct. 24 4:06 PM PT5:06 PM MT6:06 PM CT7:06 PM ET23:06 GMT7:06 4:06 PM MST6:06 PM EST3:06 UAE (+1)01:0619:06 ET6:06 PM CTNaN:� - According to the Norman Transcript, Butler will play Friday against the Thunder after missing the past two contests due to illness.
Analysis: Shabazz Muhammad had been taking his place in the starting five, and the Timberwolves have been struggling without their star shooting guard - particularly on defense.
|Oct. 22 7:02 PM PT8:02 PM MT9:02 PM CT10:02 PM ET2:02 GMT10:02 7:02 PM MST9:02 PM EST6:02 UAE (+1)04:0222:02 ET9:02 PM CTNaN:� - Jimmy Butler scored 15 points Sunday, going 7 of 17 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-113. Butler grabbed six rebounds and dished out six assists, tallying a plus-minus of +10 in his 39:09 on the floor. Butler went 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Butler is shooting just 39.5 percent (17 for 43) in the first three games while averaging 13.3 points. He scored a career-high 23.9 points and shot 45.5 percent with the Bulls last season.
|Oct. 20 8:36 PM PT9:36 PM MT10:36 PM CT11:36 PM ET3:36 GMT11:36 8:36 PM MST10:36 PM EST7:36 UAE (+1)05:3623:36 ET10:36 PM CTNaN:� - Jimmy Butler scored 13 points Friday on 5-of-14 shooting as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Utah Jazz 100-97. Butler grabbed seven rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 38:35 of playing time. He added five steals.
Analysis: The five thefts helped salvage an otherwise ordinary stat line for Butler, who's opened his Timberwolves' tenure by recording a rather modest 25 points on 10-of-26 shooting through two games. While he'll surely remain a multi-category fantasy contributor, the former Bull may be hard-pressed to duplicate last season's 23.9 points per game with Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns as new teammates.

Butler grabbed four rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -19 in his 35:26 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Butler went 2 of 3 from 3-point range.
Analysis: This wasn't exactly the debut that Butler wanted with the Wolves, but it'll take some time before he and his teammates are totally on the same page.
