Jimmy Butler injured his knee late in Game 4 and played through the injury in Wednesday’s loss to the Celtics.
Butler is clearly not at full strength as he was invisible in the 4th quarter of last night’s Game 5 loss taking only two shots. He was seen with electrodes hooked up to both his knees after the loss and mentioned that he’s knicked up. Butler has played heavy minutes in the series while producing numbers similar to his regular season averages though his shooting is way down at 40% from the field. Look for him to tough it out for Friday’s Game 6 with the Bulls’ season on the line. Look for Dwyane Wade to continue to pick up any slack on offense with Butler limited.
