Jimmy Butler suffered a groin strain in the Sixers' win over the Pistons on Monday.

An MRI taken Tuesday revealed no structural damage in Jimmy Butler's groin, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.

Butler left in the first quarter of Monday's contest against the Detroit Pistons with a groin strain. The Sixers' standout left the game with 2 minutes, 20 seconds remaining after collecting four rebounds and two assists. He missed all three of his field goal attempts in the 116-102 Sixers victory.

Despite the results, Butler is out for Wednesday's home game against the Nets (7 ET, NBA League Pass), according to Jessica Camerato.

He's averaging 20.4 points, 3.5 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game this season. Since joining the Sixers via a trade on Nov. 12, Butler has averaged 19.8 ppg -- the second-highest mark on the team behind Joel Embiid (24.7 ppg) in that span.
