WASHINGTON (AP) -Washington Wizards forward Caron Butler sat out his third straight game Friday night against the Utah Jazz because of a hip injury.
``He's out tonight,'' Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said before the game. ``Hopefully he'll be ready to go on Sunday.''
Jordan said Butler is undergoing rehab for his strained left hip flexor. Although Butler had a stomach virus Thursday, Jordan said it was the hip that kept him out of Friday's game.
Butler was picked for his second straight All-Star game Thursday. He is averaging 21.9 points, 4.3 assists and 2.4 steals, all career highs, and 7.0 rebounds.
Butler was hurt in Sunday's game at Milwaukee.
