While the Minnesota Timberwolves may trade star swingman Jimmy Butler in the coming days, he “doesn’t plan to miss regular-season games” if he is still on the team, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Wednesday.

Butler still hasn’t decided when or if he will practice with the team, but he will apparently play if he is healthy for the Oct. 17 season opener.   

Wojnarowski also reported the Timberwolves have been “consistently engaged” in trade talks with the Miami Heat regarding Butler.
