Jimmy Butler


If all goes well in terms of health, a crunch-time lineup featuring E’Twaun Moore and Nikola Mirotic probably won’t be featured when the Bulls are facing playoff competition next month.


Doug McDermott didn't impress in his first extended minutes in more than three months, but it was a start for the first-round pick.


A little more than 10 months ago, a battered and bruised Joakim Noah limped off the United Center floor following a Game 5 loss to Nene and the Washington Wizards.


After some early “devastation” and morning-after pain to his left elbow, Jimmy Butler is in good spirits and ready to look at his short break as a way to recharge his body for the playoffs.
