``I am trying to get back out there,'' the two-time All-Star said Thursday. ``I am going to wait until next week to start participating in practices, and I am going to play it by ear. My body is going to determine whether I am able to play or not.''
The injury originally was diagnosed as a strained hip flexor at the end of January, and Butler sat out three games. He then tried playing in two games, before he sat again, and an MRI exam found that Butler has a small labral tear of the left hip joint.

Butler, averaging 21.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.4 steals this season, called surgery ``the very last option.''
Instead, he hopes rest and rehab will allow him to come back at full strength.
``I am very confident that I will be back on the court, sooner rather than later,'' he said.
