MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Caron Butler fractured his left hand during the third quarter of the Clippers’ playoff game against Memphis on Sunday.

Butler was holding his hand after he scored a basket in the third quarter. He had 12 points on five-for-12 shooting.

The Clippers said Butler’s status for the rest of the best-of-seven Western Conference playoff series against the Grizzlies will be determined later.

Butler missed the Dallas Mavericks’ championship run last season after rupturing the patellar tendon in his right knee on Jan. 1, 2011.
