Kia MVP candidate James Harden was special once again on Saturday (AEDT) scoring 31 points in the Houston Rockets' 120-102 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. After grabbing a rebound late in the third quarter, the All-Star pivoted and planted hard on his right foot before collapsing and grabbing his right knee.

Before being carried off the court, Butler was examined by coaches and athletic trainers for almost three minutes.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have revealed Jimmy Butler has suffered a meniscal injury, soothing fears that he had torn ligaments in his right knee. "His first reaction was, 'I'm OK, I'll be OK". "But he was smiling". Towns and fellow 7-footer Cole Aldrich served as human crutches in escorting Butler to the locker room.

He had 10 points and five rebounds in Friday's game.

LeBron James posted his 11th triple-double of the season by providing 18 points, 14 boards and 11 assists to the Cavaliers' 112-89 drubbing of the Grizzlies.

Andrew Wiggins paced Minnesota with 21 points while Jeff Teague added 18 points, four assists and two steals. Towns added 13 rebounds.

Capela gave the Rockets 25 points and 11 rebounds, making 10-of-11 from the field.

Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton each scored 21 points as the Bucks won the opener of an eight-game stretch against teams in playoff contention. It bounced off the rim to Josh Richardson, whose rushed put-back missed the basket as time expired in Miami's third straight loss. Lonzo Ball had nine points, seven boards and six assists in 17 minutes, his first action since missing 15 games with a knee injury.

Butler had to be helped off the floor by his teammates. P.J. Tucker started in his place and had 11 points in 28 minutes.

Celtics 110, Pistons 98: Kyrie Irving scored 18 points and rookie Daniel Theis added 19 to lift visiting Boston to victory over Detroit.
