Los Angeles Clippers forward Caron Butler is not with the team and will not play against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, according to team reporter Madelyn Burke.

Butler will miss the contest due to personal reasons. No other details as to the reason for his absence were made available. The 32-year-old veteran has played in 31 of the Clippers' games in the 2012-13 season, starting in all of them. He is averaging 10.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 23.8 minutes per game.

The Clippers are off to their best start in franchise history at 25-7 and are coming off a 17-game win streak that ended on the road at the hands of the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. The Clippers will face a Warriors team on Wednesday that has made similar strides forward under head coach Mark Jackson with a record of 21-10.

Los Angeles will try to right the ship and maintain their firm grip on first place in the Pacific Division after losing their first game in over a month at Denver.
