The strained left elbow that sidelined Caron Butler the last two games has improved, and the Clippers small forward said there is "definitely a strong possibility" that he will play Sunday when the Clippers face the New York Knicks at Staples Center.
"I feel like it's getting better every day, every treatment session. I've been coming in at night and getting shots up, getting the motion to stretch back. So I feel really good," Butler said Friday.
Butler was injured during Sunday's game against Detroit. The Clippers will practice again Saturday and then see how Butler feels.
Butler, who wore a brace on his elbow, said he had full contact in practice Friday and had more mobility and extension.
Initially, after the injury, Butler thought he had suffered a tear in his elbow.
"I was extremely worried," Butler said. "But once I came in and got the results, myself and my teammates were definitely relieved. It felt good to be back on the court today."
