Caron Butler Targeting a Playoff Return

Butler wants Mavs fans to keep hope since he’s planning on returning to action during the postseason. From ESPN: “Dallas Mavericks forward Caron Butler, who suffered what was believed to be a season-ending knee injury on Jan. 1, said his rehab is going well and his goal is still to return to action in time for the NBA playoffs. Butler, who had surgery after suffering a ruptured right patellar tendon Jan. 1 at Milwaukee, has been traveling with the Mavericks. He’s been exercising in the water and was walking on the treadmill this week. ‘I’m doing great. I’m healing up well,’ Butler said. ‘My target is still the playoffs. It’s something that I’m totally capable of doing … I’m responding well and having no setbacks.’”

    So, does this make the Mavs think about keeping the roster? or do they still make a trade before the deadline?
