Jimmy Butler underwent surgery on his shooting hand on Tuesday, said the Timberwolves in a surprise announcement on Thursday

The team called it an "elective" procedure and noted that Butler has already returned to offseason activities. 

Video of Butler wearing a wrap around his right hand was posted to Twitter by Sean Cunningham on Wednesday, but according to The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski, the procedure only required him to keep his hand covered for 36 hours.
