Bulls

Jimmy Butler, who is battling back from a sprained thumb, participated in a halfcourt scrimmage on Thursday and could be active for Friday's game against the Cavaliers.
The Bulls cruised to a 24-point victory on Wednesday against the Knicks, but they know they'll face a much steeper test tomorrow against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In this week's Around the Central, the NBA season is underway, and LeBron James' homecoming was spoiled by a stellar finish from Carmelo Anthony, while the Bulls are dealing with injuries already.
