All-Star forward Jimmy Butler has gotten off to a bit of a rocky start through the first few games of the season in his first campaign with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

A significant part of this has been his struggles with his health as he’s set to miss his second consecutive game due to an upper respiratory infection, according to ESPN.

Minnesota Timberwolves star forward Jimmy Butler will miss his second straight game Wednesday against the Detroit Pistons because of an upper respiratory infection.

The 28-year-old had been placed as an inactive shortly before Tuesday’s loss to the Indiana Pacers due to the illness. This had not previously been an issue for Butler as he was able to play in the first three games of the season.

That said, he has struggled to find consistency with his shot averaging just 13.3 points on 39.5 percent shooting from the field and 33.3 percent from beyond the arc. This is a significant drop from the career-high 23.3 points that he averaged last year with the Chicago Bulls.

With Butler out of the lineup, Shabazz Muhammad will start once again after his 14-point performance against the Pacers. There is currently no timetable for how long this illness will sideline the three-time All-Star.
