Jimmy Butler scored 24 points on 7-of-15 shooting (9-for-9 FTs) with seven rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer against the Hawks on Monday.
Butler had a steal and a chance to put the Wolves up late in the game, but had it stolen by Dennis Schroder which essentially put the game away. He played 36 minutes tonight and the knee injury seems far behind him as he’s back to producing top-10 caliber fantasy lines. The All-Star break is coming up and it’ll provide some much needed rest for player coached by Thibodeau, but owners shouldn’t worry too much. Butler is averaging 36.9 minutes a game but he’s done this before and playing for Thibs isn’t anything new for him.
