Jimmy Butler played 35 minutes on Monday, shooting 5-for-16 from the field and 3-for-3 from the line for 15 points with two threes, nine boards and four assists.
Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg admitted that Butler is playing through pain and it is reflecting in his fantasy output. Jimmy Buckets is still posting top-70 value over the past two weeks, but that is a far cry from his early-round value when he was healthy. Regardless, if Butler can give it a go for all five games this week, it should be better than most players can do in three or four games of damage.
Hoiberg said Butler didn't go through shootaround. Said he's still playing through pain.
