Default Caron Butler Fractured Right Hand

I'm listening to the Wizard's game on the radio (it's not being televised) and the announcer just said Butler has a fractured right hand. He didn't have any more information, but said more will come soon. Does anyone know how long that injury sidelines people for?

No April Fools

a fractured right hand is going to need a cast and several weeks to heal.


if Butler is not available for the playoffs... hell if he's not around for the rest of the season, who knows if what fate awaits them.

Is this the worst injury season of all time? For big name players I bet it is.

caron's a soldier. i have no doubt in my mind that he'll be there for the playoffs. dude could have a broken leg and he'd be out there.

damnit.

the Wizards can win games without Butler... but our playoff hopes are through if he's not playing. he's the least important of the big 3 but without him we just don't have enough firepower or toughness to make real damage.

I was just watching ESPN and they were showing the Wizards game, and the guy says "There is Caron Butler who just broke his right hand he will be reevaluated tomorrow". Thats a very big blow for your team, sorry guys.

Sucks for the Wiz/Caron...Caron is that dude...Always got respect for For an OG Heater.

However this is "good" for the Heaters in terms of the stretch run for the Southeast...

Pretty sure he was being a sarcastic *******. Although it's possible that it was just dumb. The former suits his personality more though, I'd say. :)
