Vinny Del Negro confirmed that Caron Butler would start on Friday for the Los Angeles Clippers against the Nets despite a strained right shoulder. Butler sustained the injury in Monday's game against the Spurs.

Del Negro also said Butler may be limited on the court.

“Probably a little bit," said Del Negro. "But we’ll just start and see where we go with it.”

Butler is averaging 9.4 points and 2.1 rebounds in 10 starts for the Clippers.
