INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Milwaukee forward Caron Butler is heading to Los Angeles to see a specialist about his injured left shoulder.
Butler was injured late in Wednesday night's loss to Miami and did not return.
Coach Larry Drew says Butler is one of five players who will miss Friday's game at the Pacers. Swingman Carlos Delfino (right foot), forward Ersan Ilyasova (right ankle), guard Brandon Knight (right hamstring) and center Larry Sanders (right thumb) all will sit out for the short-handed Bucks. Guard Gary Neal (left foot) and center Zaza Pachulia (right foot) will be game-time decisions.
Indiana will be without swingman Danny Granger (strained left calf) as it tries to remain the NBA's last unbeaten team.
